What brand is a L110?

Normally a pickup tube comes from the top of the tank, and is held in place by a round rubber bushing with a steel fitting in the center. You can remove the steel fitting by pulling it out of the rubber bushing. Many manufacturers in the last 5 years have had problems with rubber lines disintegrating inside the fuel tank, and have come up with a 'special' hose to use for pickup hose. I would suggest getting the 'special' hose to replace it with, as a regular hose will work for about 2 weeks, and come off again. (due to the gasoline/achohol attacking the material of the hose and swelling, it will not stay on the fittings)
It may not be necassary to remove the tank, just use a piece of wire with a hook bent on the end to retrieve the old hose which has a weighted pickup fitting on the end. You will want to reuse the fitting.

How to replace seal on the fuel tank that filler tube goes into on 1997 Lincoln town car

You need to remove the filler neck, it has screws I think inside the gas fill door. Pull it out of the fuel tank, go under the car and remove the old rubber donut seal where tube enters the fuel tank, spray some car cleaner on the rubber and as quickly as possible insert the tank fill tube and put it all back together.

How to replace gas vent on huaqvarna 51 chainsaw

The fuel tank vent is located on the right side of the fuel
tank next to the right rear rubber element. With the fuel
tank empty and the fuel hose disconnected at the
carburetor, remove the two rear rubber elements. Separate the rear of the crankcase and the fuel tank enough to expose the fuel tank vent. Working through the fuel filler opening, grasp the fuel tank vent tube with a pair of needle nose pliers. Push the vent out the other side.
For access to the right side rubber elements, first remove the chain brake cover, bar, chain, chain catcher and cover plate.
For access to the left side rubber elements, remove the starter housing.

Install the fuel tank vent using a drift the same diameter
as the vent tube. The remainder of assembly is the
reverse of disassembly.

How does a weadeater edger pe550 gas lines hook up inside of the gas tank?

I am not familiar with your brand of machine, BUT... many machines have similar fuel line setups. Here\'s what I know.

Most carburetors have built-in fuel pumps that suck fuel from the tank. As the fuel pumps generally suck more fuel than the engine needs, there is a "fuel RETURN line" from the carb back to the fuel tank, which returns the excess fuel back to the tank. There is usually nothing attached to the end of this line inside the tank.

The "other" fuel line is from the tank TO the carb, and it usually has a tiny, weighted, fuel filter attached to a long piece of fuel line INSIDE the tank. This long, flexible, floppy piece of tubing allows fuel pickup regardless of how, what position, the machine is held.

The purpose for this set-up is threefold:

  1. The filter, of course, is to keep "trash" out of the fuel system and,

  2. The "long" fuel line inside the tank is to allow the filter/pick-up end of the fuel line to move around in order to pick up fuel from ALL points inside the tank,and

  3. The weight is to forcefully "carry" the filter/pick-up intake to the low point ["bottom"] of the tank regardless of the orientation of the machine and fuel tank!!!

On the machines that I replaced the fuel lines, to replace the suction line I had to use a longer than normal [when finished] length of line.

I first had to "fish" the filter, weight, and any nipples and or washers out of the tank.

  1. I then inserted the new line into the tank from outside through the small hose opening hole.

  2. To start, I put MUCH MORE [extra] line into the tank so that I could fish-out 5 or 6 inches thru the filler opening, allowing me to finish the connection of the filter, weight, nipple(s) and/or washers outside the tank where I had room to work!!!!!

  3. The use of nipples with washers expands the hose enough to keep the assembly from easily falling or pulling from the tank.

  4. Once all of the "in-tank" assembly was done, I then gently pulled the extra fuel line back out of the tank hole, thus pulling the weighted filter and connectors back into the tank. I left enough "loose" tubing inside the tank to allow the weighted fuel pick-up end to reach anywhere inside the tank.

  5. The final step was to route the line to the suction nipple on the carb, cut the line to proper length, and attach it over the carb suction/intake nipple.

Not being familiar with your machine, I can only hope this allows you to fix your machine! Good luck!!!!!

Had problem like this check the graumet for fuel line pick up tube that goes in fuel tank if it is deteriorated losses vacuum check inside fuel lines put clear fuel filter if it dont stay above half full the line could be restricted if your not using no ethanol fuel and always premium non ethanol fuel . Other will make fuel lines i.d. shrink take pick up tube out of tank see if any black stuff on bottom of tank if so replace all lines pump clean tank rebuild carb buy only premium no ethanol gas

Where is the fue pump located on an 97 buick lesaber

The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. If you have a major leak, there are a few things it could be. The filler tube you put gas into during a fill-up goes directly to the fuel tank. The filler tube may have a hole in it; If your tube is rubber, the clamp at the fuel tank may need replaced; you may have a fuel line leaking near the fuel tank, The fuel tank may have a hole in it. A fuel leak is a hazardous situation, so take extra precautions to be safe and have it repaired asap.

I need to know if there is a filter on the end of the pickup fuel hose in the fuel tank.i have a reddy heater ,model r100a.

Yes there is a filter. Pull up on the fuel line, or the rubber grommet that goes into the tank with the fuel line through it. There were different types of filter used. One is inside a black plastic tube. You can pick it out of the tube with a pick. Another style is located on top of the tank and is of white plastic. Your fuel delivery problem may be air related. The air pump is on the back of the blower motor, and meters a set volume of air to **** the fuel out of the tank and blow it through the nozzle. This air pressure is stated on the data plate on your heater, probably about 3.6 psi. The air filters on the air pump could also be dirty causing the air output to be reduced, and thus low fuel flow. Also check for air leaks at the pump. Spray soapy water on the black plastic cover and look for bubbles, which are of coarse air leaks.

EVAP System Vent Circuit Malfunction

This diagnosis detects leaks in the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) purge line using of vapor pressure in the fuel tank. The EVAP canister vent control valve is closed to shut the EVAP purge line. The vacuum cut valve bypass valve will then be opened to clear the line between the fuel tank and the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve. The EVAP control system pressure sensor can now monitor the pressure inside the fuel tank. If pressure increases, the Engine Control Module (ECM) will check for leaks in the line between the vacuum cut valve and EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve.

Possible causes
- Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- Leak is in line between intake manifold and EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve
- Foreign matter caught in EVAP canister vent control valve
- EVAP canister or fuel tank leaks
- EVAP purge line (pipe and rubber tube) leaks
- EVAP purge line rubber tube bent
- Blocked or bent rubber tube to EVAP control system pressure sensor
- Loose or disconnected rubber tube
- EVAP canister vent control valve and the circuit
- O-ring of EVAP canister vent control valve is missing or damaged
- EVAP canister is saturated with water
- EVAP control system pressure sensor
- Absolute pressure sensor

Possible solution
- Loose fuel filler cap
- Leaking fuel filler cap

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

Where is the fuel filter on 2001 dodge ram 1500

the fuel pressure regulator/fuel filter is located on top of the fuel tank. the fuel filter should only be changed if you suspect fuel contamination. if you need to change fuel filter/regulator you will need to disconnect the negative battery clamp from battery. then relieve the fuel pressure at the fuel rail at the test port. unscrew the cap and connect a fuel pressure gauge to port or take a few rags in one hand and a small screwdriver and press down on valve stem. if you do not have a test port then remove fuel relay marked in fuse/relay box and start engine until it runs out of fuel. lower the fuel tank and remove fuel hose to fuel pressure regulator/fuel filter.twist back and forth to remove from rubber grommet on tank. ( do not lift out more than 3 inches or you will damage the coiled tube inside the tank. remove snap ring from convoluted tube cover,slide cover down to expose the clamp to fuel pick-up tube. remove tube clamp with cutting pliers and remove regulator/filter. ( do not let the tube fall back into tank). installation is the reverse of removal.

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.
