You can find a typical fuel system and a couple of suggestions here:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3706813-2_cycle_fuel_system_repair

Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best; components are listed but may be on different illustrations.
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.

Hose can be purchased at any chainsaw outlet, Inquire about how much hose they recommend. I have not found a good hose stretcher and I have been looking. Good luck with your project. Any additional questions you may have can be asked below. I hope you found this most helpful.

I have a cadillac cts 2008, when i fill the tank with gas and open the key the engine does not star, i have to do it one more time. what is causing this problem?


When you open the gas cap, you relieve the pressure in the fuel system. Once you replace the cap, this pressure must be reestablished. All vehicles have a fuel system "prime" function that causes the fuel pump to run for about 3-5 seconds after turning the key to bring fuel pressure to the fuel rail. It sounds as though your system isn't getting enough pressure on the first prime, so you must cycle the key twice to get full pressure. It could be a sign of the fuel pump starting to fail.

I havea cub cadet model LTX1050KW and I would like to know how to remove and replace the gas tank as I can see some contaminants in the tank


You will be further ahead to use a tube/hose to siphon/**** any contaminants out of the bottom of the tank than to remove the tank. Some contaminants at the bottom of the tank are OK, pickup tubes are mounted above the bottom of the tank to allow heavy particles to settle to the bottom and not cause any problems. There should be an inline filter to catch any particles that do get into the gas line. If the contaminants you see are floating on the gas: fill the tank to bottom edge of the threaded cap flange, put the cap on and shake the mower so all the floaters come up into the cap throat. Remove the cap pick out any large particles or put just enough gas in the tank to overflow it a little and let the particles float away. Don't do this over your grass as any gas that reaches the ground will kill anything growing there.

On my CS440 18inch, When i try to start it,it wont,I prime the carb once it fires its only burning what I primed it with. I can smell gas but it wont run it used to just great,now nothin


The fuel may be getting restricted because of dust getting into the gas tank when filling up at the work site while dust is still flying all over from cutting. It only takes enough dust to cover the outside of a tiny filter which is on the end of the rubber fuel line inside your gas tank and handle unit. You could empty it all out and shine a flashlight in the gas cap hole to see the filter surface but I would take it all apart and clean it and the tank. This maintenance will save you breaking the starter rope by cranking it too much.

Need to replace all gas lines


  1. Empty the fuel tank on the chainsaw of any remaining fuel. Pull the cap from the tank and turn the unit upside down. Drain the fuel into an approved fuel container. If the fuel is old (more than about a year) dispose of it according to local regulations for hazardous materials. (It can be kept longer by adding a fuel stabilizer.)
  2. Pull the fuel line where it attaches to the carburetor using the end of the needle-nose pliers. The old fuel line may take some force to pull free from the metal tube.
  3. Push on the fuel line to feed it into the fuel tank. Hold the chain saw upside down. Shake the unit to get the fuel filter into the opening of the tank. Pull the filter free of the tank. Feed the remaining fuel line through the access hole at the bottom of the tank. Dispose of the filter and old fuel line in accordance with disposal regulations.
  4. Feed one end of the new fuel line into and through the bottom access hole of the fuel tank. Push approximately 6 to 8 inches into the tank. You can pull back any excess line later. Grab the end of the plastic line with the needle-nose pliers. Bring the line through the gas tank fill opening.
  5. Attach the new filter to the end of the new fuel line. Feed the filter back into the fuel tank. Pull any excess line from the tank. You will want approximately 3 to 4 inches of fuel line inside the tank.
  6. Route the new fuel line to the carburetor. Cut the line to length with the cutters on the needle-nose pliers. Attach the line to the metal tube.
  7. Fill the fuel tank with fresh gas-oil fuel for 2-stroke engines and start the chainsaw. It may take a few pulls to prime the new line with fuel.
  8. Some models come with a priming bulb. Make sure you press the priming bulb three to four times before trying to start. This will prime the gas lines and remove any excess air trapped in the lines.

Where is the fuel cutoff switch located for 1998 nissan pathfinder


Reseting the fuel pump kill switch.

Before you reset the fuel pump, make sure to read all of the following instructions!!!!!

            • MAKE SURE YOU HAVE GAS IN YOUR TANK! IF IT IS EMPTY, THE FUEL PUMP MIGHT NOT NEED TO BE RESET, IT ****** ****** MIGHT ONLY NEED TO BE PRIMED, PUT AT LEAST TWO GALLONS IN THE TANK AND SKIP TO "Step 4". ******

1.) Look for an access panel in the trunk, driver's side; it might even be labeled "Fuel Pump Reset".

2.) Open the compartment and press the red button. This should reset the pump.

3.) At this point it might be a good idea to "burp" the fuel tank. This will probably be the easiest thing you do all day! Just pop the cover and unscrew the gas cap, this will release any preasure built up inside the tank. As long as you're in a controled environment, go ahead and leave the cap open until you finish "Step 4". Otherwise "burp" it a couple of times while you're priming the lines.

4.) The next step is to prime the pump. In other words, make sure there is enough gas in the fuel lines to start the car. The easiest way to do this is by turning the key back and forth from the "OFF" to the "ON" position. *** Be sure not to turn all the way to the "START" position until you have performed "Step 4", at least 3 or 4 times. If you attempt to start the car before the fuel pump is properly primed, you will run a serious risk of burning out the pump. This could lead to even more costly repairs!!!

5.) Replace the gas cap before attempting ignition.

6.) Once you have reset the pump, burped the tank, primed the fuel lines, and replaced the gas cap; you should be all set! Go ahead and give it a crank, good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nissan sentra fuel problem. Put new filter and fuel pump but no gas getting to filter to get to pump. Gas line problem from tank?


I believe this is a manual fuel pump and you may have lost the prime, no fuel in hose to tank. If the hose from rear frame to tank has a break or hole, it will **** air and not fuel from tank. If this is not the case, possible clogged fuel hose, tubing, or pickup tube in tank assuming you have turned the engine over serveral times and there is enough fuel in tank. Some tanks do not pickup from very bottom because of water laying in bottom of tank from condensation.

I have the Echo PB 265L leaf blower. When it runs it leaks fuel down my back. Seems to be coming out of a tub that is connected to the fuel button pump (which you push to prime when starting) I checked on...


I had the exact same problem with gas soaking my back and found out the yellow fuel discharge tube that comes out of the carberator was not inserted into the rubber gasket on top the fuel tank. The gasket has 3 holes in it for 3 tubes and the yellow tube fits into one of the holes. Hope this helps. It is a bit difficult to get the tube in the hole, but at least if you know what you are looking for you can get it to work

Troy Built gas trimmer will not prime.ill not prime


To me it sounds like your line is clogged. It pumps towards the tank but not towards the carb. Open it up, and check your lines out, if it's clogged it could be a little too much oil (just saying if it smokes alot when it's on).
