I have a Benchmark chain saw - replaced brittle fuel lines

Will start fine when I fill the carb with gas - but no fuel priming up fuel lines. All connections tight. New spark plug. Cleaned air filter.
Any suggestions?

    OK, you may be onto something. I see some glue on the fuel filter as if something (clunk as you say) was attached. Now what?

Sounds like your clunk has come free from fuel line or it is stuck at top of fuel tank. i would empty tank and see if clunk is free by giving the saw a good shake if you cant here the rattel of the clunk you have found the problem PS clunk is a weight attached to the end of your fuel line in tank it makes the line stay at the bottom of the tank

    If the clunk is no longer there you will have to see if you can dig the line out of the tank some times the clunk line is also damaged or perished if so you should be able to by new clunk line with or without clunk. clunks are generic you just need to see what size line you have Ps the line inside of the tank should just reach outside the tank enough to be able to refit a clunk good luck

take apart your carb--sounds like your carb diaphram is not installed right the settings should be
1.5 turn out low jet

that should get it running then some fine adjustment once its running

No fuel going to carb


Either you have a air leak fuel inline or at fuel tank or a plugged up carb- sour aged fuel or foreign debris

Need to replace all gas lines


  1. Empty the fuel tank on the chainsaw of any remaining fuel. Pull the cap from the tank and turn the unit upside down. Drain the fuel into an approved fuel container. If the fuel is old (more than about a year) dispose of it according to local regulations for hazardous materials. (It can be kept longer by adding a fuel stabilizer.)
  2. Pull the fuel line where it attaches to the carburetor using the end of the needle-nose pliers. The old fuel line may take some force to pull free from the metal tube.
  3. Push on the fuel line to feed it into the fuel tank. Hold the chain saw upside down. Shake the unit to get the fuel filter into the opening of the tank. Pull the filter free of the tank. Feed the remaining fuel line through the access hole at the bottom of the tank. Dispose of the filter and old fuel line in accordance with disposal regulations.
  4. Feed one end of the new fuel line into and through the bottom access hole of the fuel tank. Push approximately 6 to 8 inches into the tank. You can pull back any excess line later. Grab the end of the plastic line with the needle-nose pliers. Bring the line through the gas tank fill opening.
  5. Attach the new filter to the end of the new fuel line. Feed the filter back into the fuel tank. Pull any excess line from the tank. You will want approximately 3 to 4 inches of fuel line inside the tank.
  6. Route the new fuel line to the carburetor. Cut the line to length with the cutters on the needle-nose pliers. Attach the line to the metal tube.
  7. Fill the fuel tank with fresh gas-oil fuel for 2-stroke engines and start the chainsaw. It may take a few pulls to prime the new line with fuel.
  8. Some models come with a priming bulb. Make sure you press the priming bulb three to four times before trying to start. This will prime the gas lines and remove any excess air trapped in the lines.

Homelite xl-175 chain saw no prime


As long as the line fits tight so its not sucking air you should be ok.. try changing out the plug if its old. Clean out the air filter too.. But the line should be ok as long as its tight..

Craftsman 358.352070-14 chain saw start problem


You could try and prime the carburetor and start the saw. If the saw starts for a short while, but dies, than it probably isn't getting fuel into the carburetor, which means that the carburetor either needs to have a rebuilt kit installed, or adjusted or both. This could especially be true if the saw has been around for a while and used quite a bit.

The filter in the tank usually doesn't go bad, but it doesn't hurt to replace it. Usually it is obvious when they are dirty and need to be replaced.
