Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

When replacing purge bulb on my 32cc craftsman brushwacker I found 3 fuel lines off carb, two were connected to bulb, what's the third? I assume it goes to the other hole on the bottom of my fuel tank but I don't see any connectors, just holes. Which lines connects to fuel filter line and how is it connected. Finally, anyone have a diagram of the whole set up (lines btwn the fuel tank and carb) ?

The inlet line has the filter on the end in the tank
that goes to the bottom nlet of the carby
the return line goes from under the primer bulb back to the tank
some units run a 3rd line with a filter on the end ( outside of the tank0as that is used to vent the fuel tank as the cap is sealed
the fuel flow is this
through the carby through the pump back to the tank and is only used to prime the float bowl ( needle and seat and diaphragm with fresh fuel and to remove any air in that chamber

SOURCE: carb not working

Dont need new carb!!!! Just need to clean that one with solvent. the floats are sticking up allowing fuel to flow. Pull it off then pull it apart and clean it with solvent for an hour. Or spray and wipe it several times with carb cleaner.

SOURCE: craftsman 28cc gas weedeater gas line connections

The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter of the two fuel lines, goes from the carburetor to the bottom of the tank. Leave enough slack in this line so that the filter that attaches to the end will rest comfortably at the bottom of the tank.

The other fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank, (about an inch). make sure that you get the right size fuel lines. The plastic coupling goes on the end of this line, inside the tank. This keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

(HINT): When feeding the lines through the tank holes, cut the lines at an angle. They will feed much easier into the holes. You can than cut them off square, once you know that you have enough to work with.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

I have a 32cc trimmer and I pulled the carbi and fuel tank off to replace all hoses. This model has a primer with three hoses. I do not know which hoses go to carbi and primer. Please help. Thank you,...


The small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects directly to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then "pushes" any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Again, on the primer bulb, the longer nipple has a line going directly from it to the tank. This is the return line. The shorter nipple on the bub has a line from it going to the metering chamber side of the carb. If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where sometimes the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. Otherwise, the line should enter the tank for about 1/2" or so

Gas edger Model 358.773100 the fuel lines were cut. looking for diagram to repair


They don't really have fuel line routing diagrams available. This is even true on the Sears website. What they do have is the machine breakdown diagrams with all the parts listed and pricing for all available parts. I can give you fuel line instructions for a 32cc trimmer. I see that your model is a 24cc 2-stroke engine. This may point you in the right direction.

Replace fuel lines,craftsman weedwacker, 358.798520 . Fuel lines disintegrated in gas tank. Three parts left in tank, fuel filter and two small plastic hose connecting items.How are these parts related to...


Fuel filter in tank with line going directly to the fuel pump side of the carburetor This is the end of the carb with a solid cover. . This line should have length in it inside the tank where it can flop around and stay on the bottom to collect fuel. The other line in the tank should have one of the little connectors on it and can be right up to where the hole in the tank is to hold it there.. This line should connect to purge/primer bulb on the longer outlet nipple. Another fuel line should run from the metering chamber side of the carb (the end with the hole in the cover) to the purge/primer bulb with the shorter outlet nipple.
The purge bulb "pulls" fresh fuel out of the tank via a vacuum created after depressing the bulb and the fresh fuel flows completely thru the carb and any air or old fuel ahead of it are drawn to the purge bulb which then "pushes" this mixture back to the fuel tank.

Need to know the fuel line routing including the primer bulb.


The smaller diameter line (fuel supply) goes from the fuel tank (w/filter) to the carb body. Look carefully at the 2 nipples on the carb. You can tell one is slightly larger than the other. Another larger line (purge line) goes from carb body to the right nipple on the primer bulb. Another large line (return line) goes from the left nipple of the primer bulb into the fuel tank. completing the purge circuit. This info pertains to the Craftsman 32cc with Zama carb and may work on the 25cc model as well.
