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

Homelite leaf blower fuel tank pickup fell off


There should be something going into the tank, a plastic elbow or connector, that will connect the fuel line from the carb to the pick up in the tank. Generally what I do is remove what ever goes into the tank and get a piece of fuel line slightly bigger than the hole and insert the fuel line directly from the carb into the tank. You have to be sure the hose is really tight so to create an air tight seal. Pull the new hose out of the tank through the fuel fill and insert the new fuel filter, push the hose back in making sure it is on the bottom of the tank but has room to move around

The fuel line in the tank connects to the nipple. It then goes into the small hole in the tank and then the fuel line from the carb connects to the nipple. This line is the line that is attached to the body of the carb, not near the plate.

How do you replace the fuel filter on a homelite st 145? the hose snapped and the filter fell into the fuel tank. Thanks


Take the old piece of fuel line and have the vendor match the size. Buy 1 ft. so that you have a little extra to work with. Cut fuel line at an angle. This will allow for easier insertion into the hole in the gas tank. Feed the line through until you can pull it out of the opening where the gas cap is. Cut the line off square. Attach the fuel filter. Pull the line back through until it rests comfortably on the bottom of the tank. Assemble the trimmer. You will then get a more accurate measurement to the carburetor.
