One hose goes from the fuel tank to the carb. the other hose comes from the carb bypass and goes back into the fuel tank.

The hose is on the side of the gas cap and it runs down to the bottom of the quarter panel. When I filled the gas tank up, gas comes out of this hose. We just had the fuel pump replaced. Its not leaking...

There are normally two hose lines from the fuel filler that run to the tank. The larger one carries the fuel from the nozzle to the tank. The smaller one is a vent hose that allows vapors to leave the top of the tank while filling. These vapors come back to the nozzle area and can be vented and/or collected by the nozzle depending upon air pollution standards in your area. If your second hose is running to the bottom of the quarter panel, it is probably the vent hose that may not have been reconnected at the top of the tank when the fuel pump was replaced. The fuel running down there is from kickback fuel at the time the pump shuts off. The real problem is that the vent line is open on top of the tank and when the tank is full, that can allow vapors and fuel to escape out of there and it could contact hot exhaust areas - a major fire or explosion hazard. Have this inspected and repaired IMMEDIATELY.

I know i need to drain the tank before i take it off, but i don't know how to drain it. please help

It is simple find a clean container.From the tank you will find the fuel valve and the fuel hose connected to your carburator. First close the fuel valve, if it is easier to remove the hose from the carburator, remove it and to put it to your container. Open the valve to drain the gasoline. Otherwise take a rubber hose about half meter of the same size and put one end of the hose to the container, disconnect the fuel hose after the valve and connect the other end of your hose which is in the container. Open the valve to drain the gasoline to the container.

ON a Poulan 220 Pro all of the fuel lines are

Your fuel lines are routed like the schematic below. I suggest you replace the filter, all hoses (2 different sizes), and the purge button (bleeder).
Let us start with the bleeder. The 2 hoses that connect to the bleeder are different sizes (Important). If the nipples are the same size connect a hose temporarily to one of them and place the free end in a small container of mix (please be careful with open gasoline and as soon as it is no longer needed put it out of harms way.). Squeeze the bulb if it blows bubbles that is the return side, it gets the large hose and attaches to a fitting on the tank. If it appears nothing happens but when released fuel is drawn into the bleeder it requires a short section of small hose and attaches to one of the carburetor fittings.
A second small hose goes through the tank and connects to the carburetor just like the video including the filter. It feeds the carburetor like it has since before bleeders were installed. I am not certain which carburetor fitting connects to the tank or the primer, please leave them long enough to swap until the saw is running. Logic says the upper most fitting (air bleed) goes to the primer but that is not always true. The Poulan drawing is deceptive it appears the filtered line feeds the bleeder it does not!!!

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best. Fuel components and part numbers are listed but are on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly.
A link to a Poulan "PP220 Gas Saw Type 5 follows (may not be your saw):

If your saw is not a Type 5 you can find the correct IPL here:
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
Thank You for using FixYa.

How to connect gas hoses

Typical fuel line routing2.gif is:

One line (the one with the fuel filter in the end of it) comes out of the fuel tank2.gif and goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The second line comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb. The third section of line goes from the top fitting on primer bulb to top fitting on the carburator. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I had to replace the primer bulb on my saw , when I started I found the hoses were all dry rotted and crumbled , I know one hose goes from the bulb to the carborator, the other hose goes from the gas tank...

One line from the tank (that has a filter on the end in the tank) is the main supply to the carburetor. The other line in the tank has no filter and is the outlet side of the primer pump. There is also a line between the carburetor and the primer inlet side. The primer is supposed to **** fuel from the tank, through the carburetor and back to the tank. The main supply line is usually a little bigger than the primer pump lines. The tank should be vented through a separate screened hole or a vented tank cap.

Without seeing your saw it is difficult to visualize. There is usually an overflow from the carburetor back to the fuel tank. I suspect that is your third hose. Lou
