Question about Homelite Garden
Homelite ST-185 (15039A). Ran then sat in garage for years. Fuel lines fell off. How do I route new ones. One hole into gas tank but it looks like there are 2 fuel lines coming off the carb.
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
