    Are you certain it isnt a cracked or split fuel hose? That would be my guess unless you dorpped the saw from a tree or ran over it. A Parts Catalog (exploded parts list) can be found here: Pages 4 & 24 show the fuel detail (this may not be you saw). I wish other manufacturers parts lists were this detailed. HTH Lou Please let us know what the exact problem is and if this was helpful.

Sounds like you have a blocked oil pump. With the flow regulator fully open and no cage filter on the end of the oil intake hose its probably pulled through dirt and blocked the pump.

Will not run

You need to make sure it is mechanicaly ok ( not scuffed the piston ) remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston skirt through the open exhaust port, any sign of damage and the machine will need to come apart.

I have a Echo 452 CS, exchanged piston and rings, engine starts and runs perfect only when I start cutting wood the engine dies immediatly. Air filter is clean, spark is OK. What could be the problem?

Fuel starvation, either due to a blockage in the fuel filter in the tank, or a split fuel hose, or dirt in the carb, it may also be due to the carb settings set too lean, when you re fitted the new piston are you sure the base gasket was correctly seated? and any pulse holes were not covered ( gasket correct orientation ).

Need a replacement fuel line for echo 452 vl chainsaw where can i fine on

You can find that fuel line at many places. Just go to any repair shop for small engines and they should be able to sell you the right one. Might take in the old fuel line just to be certain you have the right size.

How do you fix the plastic gas line? It doesn't stay in the gas tank. When I prime the bulb the gas squirts out and when the echo blower is in use, gas ends up leaking on my leg.

The holes in these gas tank are made to fit available fuel lines tightly enough to prevent the problems you are having. If yours is leaking either someone put on too small a fuel line or made the hole larger so it would be easier to put the fuel line in the tank. The only fix is to get the next size larger fuel line or replace the tank. You can try to seal the line with RTV or silicone but he gas will degrade it and it will leak again plus you'll have a harder time the next time the line has to be replaced.

Leakin gas tank on Mod #PM 425 AV-18

Try sealing with PermaChem (I think that what it's called). It's a thick, sticky, fuel resistant compound that some in a small 4 oz tube. It never really hardens. It's made for threads. If this won't work than try Seal-All It will harden & should seal a cracked fuel tank, temporary fix for a fuel hose leak, etc. It can be found at Walmart, Home Depot, etc.

My two part gas tank leaks what do i use to seal it with

If the tanks are plastic, the best fix is to replace them. Most epoxies, silicon, and other glue bases don't bond well with plastic and the vibration of the running saw doesn't help the repair either. Hope this helps!

Seal crack

Just buy the new seal and run the gas line through it and reinstall it into the tank.
