I have a Homelite z725cdv trimmer. Does the 2 piece black hose with the small nozzle in between go to the primer bulb or the carb?

How to replace troy built tb25cs primer bulb?


The primer bulb has two clips that fit into a slot. You will have to squeeze both clips to pull it out. Make sure you remember which fuel hose went on each nozzle of the primer. There are two nozzles. Make sure you put the fuel line back on the same way. The part # for the bulb if you need it is a Walbro 188-512-1.

How to replace fuel lines on homelite ut20811b gas trimmer


If there are two different size lines in the tank the smaller one is the main fuel line. The main fuel line will have the filter on the end of it in the tank and the filter should lay flat on the bottom of the tank. The main line will go directly to the carb on the fuel pump side. It is very difficult to describe and I dont have a way of giving a picture. If you have had the carb opened up the fuel pump side is the side that is mostly flat with holes and the dighram with the flaps.
The other nipple; usually more toward the center of the carb body, will go to the primer bulb. The primer bulb will have 2 different length nipples. The longer one is out to the tank, the shorter one is in from the carb. There is no need to have more than a half inch of line from the primer into the tank. when hooked up properly; as you press and release the primer bulb it will draw fuel up the main fuel line into the carb and fill the carb with fuel then from the carb to the primer bulb and fill the primer bulb with fuel then the excess fuel will be returned to the tank from the primer bulb.

I have a 32cc trimmer and I pulled the carbi and fuel tank off to replace all hoses. This model has a primer with three hoses. I do not know which hoses go to carbi and primer. Please help. Thank you,...


The small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects directly to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then "pushes" any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Again, on the primer bulb, the longer nipple has a line going directly from it to the tank. This is the return line. The shorter nipple on the bub has a line from it going to the metering chamber side of the carb. If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where sometimes the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. Otherwise, the line should enter the tank for about 1/2" or so

Homelite UT2680 trimmer fuel line (25cc engine)


You can go to a small engine repair shop, parts shop or look on eBay and they should have the fuel lines you need. Not very expensive, about $1.00/foot for new Tygon lines. You are way overdue for replacing yours. The ethanol in the gas does a job on them.

I have a homelite ut20585 string trimmer that i have put a new primer bulb, fuel lines and fuel filter on. i have checked the spark plug and it is good. i cannot get it to fire and run.


Ok you have to be 100% certain that you reassembled those hoses correctly, if any one of them is incorrect you are dead in the water as far as getting fuel properly. Tell me 2 things, Why did you feel they needed to be changed? and now that you've done it does the new primer bulb pump fuel at all, and maintain a full bulb of fuel after 15 min?

Homelite ST-185 (15039A). Route new fuel line.


If you look closely there should be 2 holes in the fuel tank, also if you look inside the fuel tank there should be some remaining pieces of the fuel line and a fuel filter. If this has been sitting for any length of time you will also want to replace the fuel filter.

Now comes the fun... or a challenge

To start with you will need 2 sizes of fuel line ( go to a small engine repair shop) while you are replacing things you may want to buy a new primer bulb also.

to insert the fuel lines into the tank you will have to cut a tapered tail about 2 " long so that you can grab the fuel line with a needle nose and pull them through and out of the tank so that you can trim off the tapered tails. On one install the fuel filter and stick back into the tank, on the other trim the tapered tail off and pull the line back into the tank but leave about 1" sticking through the tank.

Now hook up you fuel lines to the carb and/ or primer bulb

Fill tank half full with fuel ... now test the installation if it doesn't pump fuel but instead you can hear it blow bubbles in the tank it is simple just reverse your lines on the carb / primer bulb

Retest if it works like it should you are ready to attempt to start it... good luck

Primer bulb only holds suction, wont move fuel thru line


By "holds suction" this means that you can depress the primer bulb and it remains in the "pressed" position and/or does not reinflate (for lack of a better term)?

You need to determine if a blockage exists in either one of the fuel lines, or with the primer bulb itself.

First, drain your fuel tank. Do this into a clear mason jar or equivalent and inspect your fuel to see if it is full of debris since even very small pieces of grass, dust, dirt, etc... can cause problems. If so, then you need to flush your fuel tank and or lines.

Viewing the backside of the primer bulb, you can see several clear fuel tubing lines that lead from the primer to the carbureator and fuel tank..

Next, carefully remove these using a pair of needle nosed pliers (or by hand is at all possible) being very careful not to crush or tear the tubing.

With the clear tubing removed, if the primer bulb will press in and immediately reinflates back to it's relaxed position, then one or more of your lines are clogged by a small piece of debris. If the primer still does not relax, then it is blocked by a small piece of debris or needs to be replaced (pick one up at Lowes, etc...).

If you determine that your lines may be clogged, then I have had success clearing them with a can of WD-40 by sticking the red nozzle into the clear tubing (attempt to make a seal) and by pressing for a half-second or so. If you get flow, then let it rip for a second, then proceed to rinse your fuel tank again just for good measure (basically until you get nothing but clean gas...no debris).

Put it all back together and let it rip!

My homelite weed eater sx-135 the fuel filter broke of the tube


The longer, and sometimes smaller in diameter fuel line, goes from the carburetor to the bottom of the tank. This line, which has the filter attached to the end, should rest comfortably on the bottom of the tank.
The other fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank, (about an inch, with that very small piece of plastic attached to it. This piece of plastic keeps this line from pulling out of the gas tank. this line serves as an overflow from carb.
