There is no reason to disassemble your saw, Please stop.

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

An IPL for a Poulan “PP3816 Gas Saw Type 2” can be found here - There are slightly different models. Please ensure this applies to your saw:
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP3816-Gas-Saw-Type-2/75.PP3816-Gas-Saw-Type-2.1.59.1.html

The small hose goes between the filter and carburetor and from the IPL the carburetor and primer.
The large hose between the primer and fuel tank (return).


If the above is not the correct model it can be found here:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

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.

How do you replace the gas tank on a ryo 8548 gas blower


Why are you trying to remove the fuel tank just for broken fuel line?
These can be normally be replaced while the tank in still mounted using the appropriate tools.

As for removing the tank you probably need to remove that starter assembly or may need to fully disassemble the casing.

Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

Fuel pump insalllation


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Jack
  • Safety stands
  • Wrench
  • Socket wrench
  • Pliers
  • Screwdriver
  1. 1 Jack up the car and support it with safety stands. Be sure the car is high enough to get the tank out from underneath the car. You could use a car lift instead. If you use a lift, you will need an automatic transmission jack or a second person to help you lower the tank to the ground.
  2. 2 Unclamp and remove the filler and vent hoses from the gas tank. Most are held on with aero type hose clamps. Unplug any wiring to the fuel pump and sensors. Using wrenches or pliers, remove the fuel lines at the pump. You might need to lower the tank one to two feet to remove the lines and wires.
  3. 3 Support the gas tank with the jack. Use socket wrenches to unbolt the gas tank straps. Remove or reposition the straps out of the way of the tank. Lower the tank some and check to make sure all lines, hoses and wires have been removed. Continue lowering the tank and place it on the ground.
  4. 4 Clean the tank area around the fuel pump assembly of all dirt and debris. Release the pump assembly retainer. This may held to the tank with a clamp, a slip ring or screw nuts. Remove the pump assembly from the tank. Drain any liquid fuel from the assembly and place on a work bench.
  5. 5 Remove the pump from the assembly and discard or replace the entire assembly. Some pumps can only be replaced as a unit. If you can replace just the pump be sure to install the new sock filter that comes with the pump.
  6. 6 Return the repaired pump assembly to the tank. Use new gaskets or O-rings if supplied. Secure it into the tank with the retainer.
  7. 7 Place the gas tank back onto the jack and raise it to the car. Reinstall the fuel lines, hoses and wiring. Continue raising into its cavity on the body. Secure the tank with the gas tank straps and tighten with a socket wrench.
  8. 8 Reinstall the filler and vent hoses. Tighten the clamps. It is a good idea to also replace the fuel filter at this time. Lower the car to the ground. Test for leaks and repair any found.

Have a weedeater gt1 15 trimmer how do u get the gas tank apart to repair the gas tubing


You will not need to remove the gas tank or take the gas tank apart. Follow these instructions:
1. Disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor. You may need to cut the line pull it off.
2. Push the fuel line back through the gas tank. At the end of the fuel line is the fuel filter/weight that should be moving around within the gas tank.
3. You should be able to pull the filter/weight out of the fuel tank through the neck using a needle nose pliers. Insure the fuel filter is cleaned out before you re-assemble.

Note: The fuel line that you use as a replacement must be the same diameter of the fuel line you are removing. If you cannot find the fuel line at your local mower shop, try Lowes Hardware as they do stock it in the lawnmower section.

To reassemble: Take about 7 inches of correct fuel line and cut a 45 degree angle cut at one end. That end is threaded back through the tank through the small hole. Push as far as you can and then reach in and pull it to the neck. Cut the straight, attach the filter/weight and pull the line back through.

I need to know how do i change a fuel pump on a 1994 lincoln town car


  • First, you need to make sure you only have a gallon or so left in the tank. Siphon off the gas into an approved container.
  • Place the car in jack stands for easier access to the gas tank.
  • You will need to remove the fill hose and vent line from the filler neck.
  • Place a floor jack under the fuel tank; remove the straps that hold the tank in place. Carefully lower the tank.
  • You will need to remove the gas lines and vapor lines going to the tank. You may need a special tool for this. You can purchase at a local auto parts store. The tool is placed on the fuel line then pushed into the connector pushing back the fingers that hold the connector together.
  • After disconnecting lines and wires to tank drop tank all the way to the ground.
  • If you have the old style, you will need a flat screwdriver and a small hammer to remove the retaining ring that holds the assembly onto the tank. There is three tabs to tap on with the screwdriver and hammer. The new style requires a strap wrench to unscrew the retainer.
  • With the retaining ring removed you can remove the assembly from the tank.
  • Replace the fuel pump and the fuel strainer.
  • Assembly reverse procedure.

Gas line cracked and nipple fell back into tank ..how do I remove gas tank to replace gas line and nipple????..ryobi 725r trimmer


Empty the tank by dumping into a can or something. Shake the trimmer around until the "nipple" falls out. Get a replacement fuel line and follow their instructions. When yoou put the tube back into the tank, have something that you can guide the line through the hole with. I used a small hex wrench. If you cut the tip of the tube at a sharp taper, it will be much easier to start through the hole. You might think of replacing the return line as well. You should not have to remove the tank if you expose the carb and remove the air filter...Good luck...Lee

I've got bad gas and need to know the easiest way to drain the tank or otherwise fix the problem.


The tank will have to be removed from the vehicle and completely dried out.Gas tanks no longer have drain plugs as they did 50 years ago.Remove the fuel pump from the top of the tank,and thoroughly clean the tank with brake cleaner and compressed air and let air dry for awhile.The fuel pump and filter will need to be replaced with new,and after all the reinstallation,the fuel line must be disconnected at the engine,and the line flushed with new,clean gasoline as well as the return fuel line.Spark plugs will have to be replaced also.
