I suspect that this is a replacement fuel line. Husky uses rubber lines. Does the leak occur at the tank interface or does the line just hang free? If free, the end probably should go to the output side of the primer bulb. Replace this line with the correct sized rubber line. Most service shops carry various sized lines for nearly every saw. Hope this helps!

Chainsaw primers/ re fitting hoses


It is quite obvious, by the amount of reqests we see that there is confusion regarding the correct orientation of fuel hoses on externall primers.
Lets start by saying this component is not a primer, if you were to push fuel into the carb, you would just flood it, and make starting near impossible, they are purges, they actually pull fuel from the carb, and dump it back into the tank, this way you cannot over purge the machine, and when the saw runs out of fuel, it very quickly re fills the carb ready for easy re starting.
So the fuel hose from the fuel tank,the one with the fuel filter on the end, goes to the fuel inlet elbow on the carb, this is the elbow closest to the pump cover on the carb, normally held with one philips head screw and made of alluminium. The other hose from the carb, closest to the metering side of the carb, normally held with four screws and made of chrome plated steele, goes to the shorter of the two connections on the back of the purge, this is the suction side,by pulling fuel from the carb emptys the fuel chamber, atmospheric pressure from the vent hole in the metering cover pushes the metering diaphram down opening the fuel inlet needle, allowing fuel from the tank to enter, and re fill the chamber, you can test this by putting a finger over the connection, depress the purge bulb and let go, you should feel your finger sucked down, the longer of the two connections on the back of the purge is the pressure side, this hose will go back to the tank, it will just push into the tank with nothing on the end, you can test this side by putting a finger over the connection, depress the purge bulb, you will feel a pressure on your finger, if you have clear fuel hoses, you will be able to see the fuel movement. Any signs of cracks, splits, or fuel loss from any of the hoses will greatly effect the running and well being of the machine.
I hope this has been helpfull and informative.

How do I replace fuel line on my Husqvarna 136/141 Chainsaw


This is not as easy as it sounds, this machine uses a micro bore hose which is an interference fit in the tank, to replace it you will need to remove the fuel tank from the saw, to do this start by removing the guide bar and chain, remove the three screws securing the top cover and remove, remove the two screws holding the air filer and remove, remove the two 10mm nuts hloding the filer back plate and remove, remove the two 7mm head boltssecuring the carb, remove the two cross head screws securing the metal bracket against the carb, lift the carb away with the throttle wire and choke pull attached, diss conect the fuel hose, now remove the four screws holding the starter cover on, two screws are self tapping and go into the plastic cranlcase the other two are machine screws and go into the anti vib mounts, when replacing make sure they go back in the same holes in the starter cover, on the other side of the saw remove the 4mm allen screw securing the chain catcher in the bottom r/h side of the saw, this also screws into an anti vibe mount, remove the cross head screw at the top l/h side of the saw and remove the orange plastic square cover, the fuel tank will now drop out of the bottom of the saw with the top handle still connected,pull the old fuel hose out through the the fuel filler hole with the filter still connected, ncut a point on one end of the new fuel hose and push down through the top of the tank, grab with a pair of long nose pliers through the filler hole and pull the hose in, trim the end and re fit the filter, allow enough hose to allow the filter to move around in the tank, re fit the tank and securing screws, re build in reverse of diss assembly.

Changing my fuel line on my husqvarna141 chain saw and after pulling line out cant figure out where it threads back in to tank


The 141 uses a a very small bore fuel hose, it feeds through the top of the crankcase under the carb, and into the top of the fuel tank, it is not easy to do without removing the fuel tank from the crankcase. To remove the tank, start by removing the air filter held with two screws, remove the two 8mm nuts securing the filter back plate and remove, remove the two 7mm studs securing the carb, and the two cross head screws securing the carb support plate, remove the carb and throttle wire, now remove the four screws securing the starter cover ( these screw into two of the anti vib mounts ) turn the saw over and remove the 4mm allen screw securing the chain catcher at the front corner of the saw, remove the single cross head screw at the rear top corner of the saw and remove the plastic orange cap, the tank will now come away with the top handle as a unit, you can now see and fit the fuel hose.

How do i take the oil tank off a 41 cc husky chain saw


I guess we are talking about the Husqvarna 41/141, start by removing the guide bar and chain, remove top cover, disconnect and remove the throttle wire, remove the fuel hose from the carb, use a 4mm allen key and remove the front anti vibration rubber screw ( drive side, bottom front r/h, holding the alloy chain catcher ) now remove the top anti vibration rubber screw with a cross head screw driver ( top l/h holding an orange plate ) now remove the four screws securing the starter cover, two screws are into the plastic crankcase, and two are into the anti vibration rubbers, the fuel tank should now pull out from the bottom of the saw withe top handle still connected, make sure the fuel hose feeds out of the crankcase as you pull the tank away.

I need info on a Poulan Pro 445 fuel line routing


I'm so confused. This is reported as a Poulan and McCulloch pole saw, which one? Is it a pole saw? That is the only 445 Poulan I can find. It is reported as an electric but has a fuel routing problem.

If it is a Poulan Pro gas pole saw it is here: PP445 Gas Pole Pruner
The fuel system routing is terrible, but it is all there is.
Fuel Routing follows:
Tank to carburetor (hose in tank with filter on free end)
Carburetor to primer (primer draws fuel from the tank through the carb)
Primer to fuel tank (returns any excess fuel to tank when pushed) HTH

Husqvarna ranger 55 chainsaw starts but quits


I too have a rancher 55 and had what sounds like the same problem this week. It would start fine but run for only a few seconds at a time. I took it all apart today and found the problem - a cracked fuel line. In the places where I could see the hose it looked fine, but it wasn't until I removed the fuel tank that I found the crack...right where it exits the tank and then goes thru the housing above it. You don't need to remove the tank to replace the hose but it is easier that way. You do have to push it thru a grommet at the top of the tank. I read some other posts about checking the tank vent to see that it's not plugged up. Mine was ok so I knew it had to be something else. The vent is in a hole about the size of a pencil and is recessed about an inch into the tank on the upper right side. Its partially covered by a plastic cap that's part of the vibration damper, which can be removed to gain access to the vent. The vent tube can then be pushed out from inside the tank with the use of long needle nose pliers, but be gentle. I just loosened it then pushed it out with a finger. I put it all back together with a new hose and its running like new again!
