Just take the old filter with you to about any place that sells lawn equipment (WalMart, Tractor Supply, Ace Hardware, etc) and get a replacement filter. Most of these retailers carry replacement filters for trimmers/blowers. The filter should just stick in the end of the fuel line inside the tank.. Take the old one for comparison purposes. Hope this helped and best wishes.

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

My weed eater's fuel lines are busted, do i need to get the whole tank assembly, it looks like their is a filter or float or some sort on the end of the line insisde the tank?

No, you don't need a new tank. You are right about the filter inside the tank.It will make it very easy for you if you can buy the new lines with a new filter attached, but if not, just buy the fuel line.

My fuel lines became rotten and i'm not sure how to reconnect the in-tank fuel lines and filter

A bit more time consuming and requires patience more than skill on this task.

First, only take off 1 of the fuel lines at a time. That way you can make sure you put the right hose on the right fitting.

Let's start with the line with the filter. Take the line off the carburetor. Cut a bit of it and go to a mower repair shop to get your new fuel line. Get about 2 feet. That's about double what you need, but will probably waste some in the process. When you get the new line, cut a sharp point at 1 end. Get a needle nose pliers and reach into your fuel tank and pull out the filter and the rest of the fuel line. Get a fairly fine wire, wrap it around the pointed end of the new fuel line. Snake the wire into the tank and out the small hole. This will help you pull the new hose into the tank and out the hole. This might take a bit of time. When you get the new hose out, square off the end and push it on the carb fitting. Cut the hose where it enters the tank and slip your fuel filter on and drop into the tank. 1 down and 1 to go.

Host #2 can be put into the tank the same as #1, or you can try to push it in from the top. May work with a little lubrication. Hook #2 up to the carb.

This should get you up and running.

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

Fuel lines inside of tank fell off

This is the typical fuel line routing2.gif on many models: One line ( the one with the fuel filter in the end of it) comes out of the fuel tank2.gif and goes to the lower port on the carburator. The second line goes from the fuel tank to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb. The third section goes from the top port on the primer bulb to the top port on the carburator. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Cant figure out where fuel lines go on mccullogh chain saw

Fuel lines: one comes from the tank...has a filter in side the tank...runs up to the intake of the carb... you can tell by hooking up the lines to the carb, and put one into a gas supply... press the prime bulb... if it pulls gas, thats the one to hook into the tank...if not it 's the other... there should only be two lines a fuel supply and a return pressure line. Clean the air filter while you've got it apart....
