Poulan blower GBI30V won't start. Took it apart. Looks like tube from gas tank to engine is rotted & broken. Can it be replaced? Should tube connect to that little part which may have floated in gas tank?

Maybe your carb is out of adjustment. The easiest way to readjust is to turn the screws all the way in and start the blower. While it's running start to back the screws out until it runs nice and smooth and you should be all set.
Good luck!

SOURCE: 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.

Fuel Line Replacement by

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, an output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs to help with reassembly.
Typical fuel system:
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best.
2450 Gas Saw Type# - # is the dash number of your serial number.
No one illustration shows all fuel system components.

SOURCE: Poulan blower was running - ran out of gas - put

Does it use a fuel and oil mixture?You probably did that.

Try removing the spark plug and cleaning it with a wire brush or some emery cloth.Make sure you have spark by connecting the plug wire and resting the plug on the metal motor block.

Do not hold the plug in your hand ,if you have no spark you may have a bad magneto.

If the blower has been setting or stored for a while then you need to check the fuel lines and be sure they have not rotted out because ethanol gas will eat them up. If the lines and the fuel filter in the tank is ok then you may need to rebuild the carb. it is not difficult to do. Just takes a little time. You can watch a video on to see how to do it. Before doing the carb. check and make sure there is no cracks in the primer bulb if one is on the blower and check to be sure the plug is firing and the air cleaner is not plugged. Hope this helps.

Won't Start

The silver cylinder that fell out was the fuel filter. Fashion a thin coat hanger into a small hook and try to fish out the plstic tubing. This is your fuel line. If there is enough to get it just out of the tank, cut the broken end off and press back onto a new fuel filter. You should be able purchase one at hardware store such as Home Depot or Lowes. If the hose is broken too far down inside the tank, you will need to take it to a small engine repair shop. Hope this was helpful

This engine may well have seized, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston skirt through the open exhaust port, any signs of scuffing and the machine will have to come apart to assess the damage.

The ful line actualy disloved and the problem is inside the carburtator there is a valve that lets fuel into the fuel bowl and also shuts it off when its full the floats control it so its always opening and closeing that is stuck closed from the melted fuel line you need to clean the entire carburator out the neddle valve may have a rubber tip at the seal point so take care not to damage it ware it makes the seal but its not hard to do anyone with some common sence and a little mechanical abilitly can do them selves

I have a Poulan gas blower that will not start. It is getting fuel, I have replaced the plug and coil. It looks like it has a weak spark, but does spark. Will not even fire with starting fluid.

Compression is zero, huh? Well the only thing that could cause that is the piston ring is stuck so that the right pressure never builds in the cylinder. These Poulan blowers are fairly easy to take apart, the hardest part is getting the plastic frame back! Keep me posted on your progress, parts are easy to get for these blowers. My suggestion to you is order a new piston ring and a gasket kit. Once you take it apart you will have to replace the gaskets and seals.

Reattaching fuel line to gas tank.

Get a new line the same size and length of the old one. Get the filter out of the tank. If it is as I think, it has a barbed end that goes into the outlet hole. Take your new line, fit it onto the filter end and make sure it is all the way on. Take the other end of the line and cut a taper on the end. Thread the end through the tank, into the outlet hole and aissist it so your filter sticks through the tank hole. There was a ring on the outside of the tank, on the line. Take that ring and run the ring over the end of the tube up to the filter bottom. Make sure it goes all the way up to the bottom, and tight.Square off the end and slip it onto the carb...Good luck...Lee

Both gas lines are dry rotted off...

Sorry about the delay.
Problem solved, I hooked up the lines (very important to get a drill the size of your new gas line, it aids in sealing the tank, thus providing a good seal for the prime).
The thing in the bottom of the tank, attached to the line is a filter. It is available at any small engine shop).
Once I hooked up the lines and hit the primer ball a few times you can see the fuel moving, you will know, because you will see which way it flows through the lines. The other line is just a return line into the tank.
It is the same on generally any 2 cycle blower or weedwacker motor.

Poulan leaf blower won't start

I had spark and compression. It was definately a fuel delivery problem as the primer bulb was not filling with fuel. I tried taking off the carb spraying it with cleaner, blowing compressed air through the fuel lines and removing the fuel filter.

Finally I took the top of the carb off (the two screws holding the primer bulb on). I sprayed the ports with carb cleaner and used compressed air to blow through the fuel inlet and outlet.

When I put it back together, the bulb filled with fuel on the first prime, and the engine fired up on the first pull. The throttle response is also much snappier than it has ever been.

I'm not a mechanic, but it worked for me. Hopefully it will help someone else.
