Hi Graham,

If the problem is a leak and not something more serious, I have a quick, cheap and permanent fix for you.

Go to an auto parts store, They have a two part solid epoxy sold to repair batteries and Gas tanks. Cost is a couple bucks.

You don't even need to drain the tank. Knead it together, and jam it into the crack, hole or whatever. In 15 minutes it's as good as new.

Hope you found this to be very helpful,
Mike

Car was running fine and then just died. try starting it and turns over and runs for a second and dies


Clogged fuel supply?
These symptoms are indicative of such a problem.
Dirty fuel filter.
Clogged or obstructed fuel line.
Low fuel supply.
Debris in tank.
(Were you near empty?).
Obstructed supply pick up in tank? Or broken. This is possible, if pickup was broken, the line is now higher and you could have an 'out of fuel' type symptom, at 1/4 tank.
Good Luck

How do you replace the gas tank on a ryo 8548 gas blower


Why are you trying to remove the fuel tank just for broken fuel line?
These can be normally be replaced while the tank in still mounted using the appropriate tools.

As for removing the tank you probably need to remove that starter assembly or may need to fully disassemble the casing.

How to change fuel line on Husqvarna Trimmer 128L


They are juat a pull in fitting. Get access to the fuel tank, the broken fuel line should just pull out the tank. The new full line goes back in through the top, just pull through into the tank until the hole in the tank sits between the 2 flanges on the fuel line.

Have 2 gas lines dangling in gas tank, mcculloch 42c, 36cc, older, one line has filer other for primer????? or did it come disconnected


Hi perfecthelme...
Those are broken fuel lines your are seeing and a fuel filter inside of the tank
*******************************************************************************************
I will include a fuel routing drawing.
Before you remove any fuel lines, make a drawing or take a picture of how the lines are connected to the tank for later reference.
You will need to remove all the old fuel lines and fuel filter out of the gas tank.
Clean and remove all trash,broken pieces of fuel line,etc. from the fuel tank.
After you have all the fuel lines and filter removed.
You need a piece of wire...smaller diameter than the inside of the fuel line, insert the wire into the fuel line until it exits the fuel line then bend a hook on the end of the wire to hook over the fuel line.
You will lubricate about 1 inch of fuel line with a small amount of vasoline or light machine oil...
Now using your fingers or small needle nose pliers collapse the fuel line around the wire hook and insert it into the hole in the fuel tank.
After you have the fuel line in the tank, extend enough fuel line into the tank to exit the fill spout of the tank and remove the wire from the fuel line.
You will insert the new or cleaned fuel filter into the line and pull the fuel line to pull the filter just back into the tank.
Please take time to rate me

Gas guage doesnt work


It sounds like a problem with the fuel gauge sender unit in the fuel tank which has worn out and gone open circuit and needs replacing. Access to the unit is usually through a removable plate in the floor in the rear of the vehicle. Disconnect the wiring connector and any hoses and then remove the securing screws. Replacement is done by reversing procedure.

Fuel gauge stopped working


this is usually caused by a broken fuse or a broken float in the fuel tank.

check the fuse first (under the dash or under the hood)

if thats good then check the float. It is inside the fuel tank. you will need to remove the back seat of your car. everything is located under the back seat.

remove the tank cover protector

then remove the fuel pump or float by unbolting it from the tank.

Most probably if you take out your gas pump/sending unit assembly out of your fuel tank you will find a broken fuel hose on the assembly. The actual pump rests in the bottom of the tank with hoses running to the top of the pump / sending unit assembly. It is probably broken around the 1/2 tank mark. When fuel level is higher than the break in the hose, everything runs fine, but once fuel level reaches under the break, the pump starts pushing fuel out of the break back into the tank and the engine does not recieve enough fuel pressure to run.
