Featherlight plus weedeater, where does the second gas tube go?

There are two tubes in gas tank, can't figure out where second one goes. Won't run well, it has to have choke off, and then it doesn't have enough power to cut anything.

    It only runs when choke is fully closed.

On a two-stroke engine, the second line is a pressure line.. it is actually running back to the tank and helps pressurize the tank to feed on the other line...there should be a second hole in the tank .

Try removing the air filter and squirting some carb cleaner in the carb( you'll know where it is by turning the choke on and off, you'll see the butterfly valve move) Also try cleaning the air filter, sounds like it's being starved for air.

    Have you tried the carb cleaner, because if the choke has to fully closed (on) then it's starved for fuel. You have something plugged or gummed up. Or possibly a fuel line with a leak and not getting enough fuel to the engine. I don't know how handy you are but this could be quite complicated to fix. If you feel comfortable with taking a carb apart that has a zillion tiny parts and springs that can go flying to neverland when you open it up, then I could assist you further. If not then I would probably take it to the shop. ( I will also need to know more about the make and model and size of the motor.

........What should the little hose go to from my gas tank filler?......Thanks

It should connect at the filler area, that's a vent tube that lets the gas pump know when to cut off.

Weedeater won't start

inside the carb there is a small screen. it is probably dirty. also the diaphragm may be stiff. go ahead and rebuild it. the kits are cheap and it should run like a new one. there are videos on you tube that show how to do this.

I have a stihl f545 weedeater that will run on choke but goes dead when you switch it to run

Hi there,
When was the last time you checked your fuel filter in the gas tank.It's on the end of a flexible tube and you can get it out with a piece of stiff wire.Bend a hook in one end file the sharp end of hook and snag the tube out and replace with a new filter.Might as well clean the gas tank out while your at it.First use a rag to clean around the gas cap ,open cap and drain gas back into your gas can.Next get a pack of BB's and pore them in the tank(count them)and close the cap.Shake the saw to knock any crape loose.Empty the BB's out and count them.Add some cleaner for chainsaw gas tanks which is available at hardware stores and auto parts store add new fuel.Thank You for choosing

The filter sounds like the weighted type. If so, it keeps the pickup line on the bottom. The piece that keeps the tube in the tank can just be a piece of a little larger tube pressed over the pickup tube. Yoi will have to thread new tubing in and pull it out the fill hole. Place the keeper on the tube and press the filter into the pickup tube. Once you are ready, pull the pickup tube inti the tank until the keeper touches the tank side. Hook up to the primer and try it. Good luck...Lee

Replace fuel lines WeedEater FL 1500 Blower

On the FL1500:
  • The Smaller line goes on the Lower inlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to the gas filter inside the gas tank.
  • The Larger line goes on the upper outlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to a fitting that holds this tube from coming out on the gas tank .This tube is only for Air, it helps fill the primer bulb when pushed.
I hope this helps.
Mechs correct me if I have made a mistake.

I have a weedeater series 300 lawnmower. When I prime it, it will run for about 5 seconds and then stops. It burns off the gas from priming it and then cuts off. If I do this about 20-30 times then it will...

thats a common problem with those briggs motors. There is a plastic tube that goes from the back of the carb to the other side of the motor. There are two small bolts that hold the tube down opposite the carb end of the tube. They loosen over time allowing to much air to get in. Also the tube cracks but not to often. If that doesn't help you need a kit that comes with a gasket and a diaphram. you may need that because the tube warps were it meets the carb. That should fix it.

Gas shuts off every few seconds when filling gas tank

there is a vent tube that runs along side the fuel tank fill pipe, this tube allows air to went out as fuel is put in,if it kinks (it is very soft thin plastic tube) then u end up with your problem, replace the vent tube, the fill pipe and vent tube come as one part.
