Question about Poulan Garden

1 Answer

I have a Weedeater FL1500 Blower. The fuel line has rotted. Inside the tank there was a filter, a small white fitting with two ends and a small rubber green wedge piece. I am not sure how to attatch the three pieces. There are only two ports, one below primer bulb and the other is offset from that one.

Find a shop that can do a compression test on the engine. If the compression is not at least 100 psi, the engine will not run. So replacing the fuel lines and filter will be money out the window. It may be time to buy a new one. Spend two to three times what you spent on this unit and you may have something a little better. I like Echo products myself but you have to buy them from a dealer to get a good unit.

The diameter of the fuel lines are bigger then the holes in the fuel tank. Make sure u get the right diameter fuel line. The fuel lines are basically crimped by pressure. Sometimes its like there welded in place. There should be two fuel lines. One is short goes from carb to tank. When you use the primer bulb it takes fuel from tank through carb spits it back into tank. The longer one has the fuel filter on it. Empty all the gas from tank. Look inside of tank with a flashlight and try to locate the fuel filter. Take a piece of wire make hook on one end. Try to snag the fuel filter and pull out. Might as well replace filter while it is out. Take a pair of long nose pliers and grip the hose as close to the hole as possible. Try to pull with even pressure(no yanking). The lines may break because they could dry rotted. Make sure to hook lines back up the same way they came off carb.

Fuel line in tank dry rotted how do you replace


Hi classic11369...

Remove the old fuel line and filter from the tank...
You will insert a wire a little smaller than the diameter of the inside of the fuel line, and you will bend a small hook on the end of the line to fit over the fuel line (be sure to use a small wire) .
Lubricate the first 1 inch of fuel line with vasoline lightly...using your fingers or neednose pliers collapse the fuel line and insert it into the fuel tank, entend the fuel line long enought to go out of the fuel tank so you can reconnect the fuel filter...then pull some of the fuel line back into the fuel tank...
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

I have a weedeater xt 200 trimmer. The parts in


The tube in the tank is the fuel pickup line and goes directly to the carburetor. You will need to get NEW fuel lines. Fish or shake the old parts out of the fuel tank after draining. Inside the tank will be a small length of smaller diameter fuel line that connects to the small fuel filter and there will be a small nylon line connector that is plugged into the end of the larger diameter fuel line which is the fuel return line from the primer bulb back to the fuel tank. That line ends just inside the fuel tank and is held there by the small nylon line connector. The other line (smaller diameter) needs some length inside the tank so it can flop around as you move the machine enabling it to always pick up fuel. 6" or so is about right from the hole in the bottom (or top) of the tank to the fuel filter. Buy long enough lengths of fuel line that they can be inserted into the tank and pulled thru the fill cap area and then have the parts put back on them and then cut to the correct length from the fuel tank to the carburetor and/or primer bulb. Buy about 1 foot of each size line needed. Small engine repair shops have it and sell it..not expensive.

Weedeater leaf blower FL1500


Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

Youwill need to disassemble the carburetor and spray withcarb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should beable to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

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.

Dry rotted tubing on my weedeater blower.


Have it replaced at a lawnmower repair shop.
1.) Have them check the grommet (black round rubber like a thick coin with 2 or 3 holes), replace it if it is crumbly. It holds the fuel line and the fuel vent line - if your trimmer has it. Grommets on the average cost about $6.00. Not all trimmers have fuel grommets, some of them only have holes right on the fuel tank. 2.) Replace the fuel line with Tygon fuel line hose. Tygon can withstand UV light, petroleum, high and low temperatures while retaining its shape. Just make sure the replacement tube is of the the same inside diameter. For a small piece of Tygon hose, ave. cost no greater than $8.00. 3.) Replace the fuel filter. The one inside the tank, connects to the end of the fuel line. Fuel filter, good ones are about $4.00.

The filter in the gas tank came off.


The filter should only fit in the end of one of the lines (probably the larger diameter one) The smaller line usually goes from the tank to the primer bulb and the larger one goes to the carburator. The filter just sticks in the end of the fuel line.
