It sound like the primer bulb does not retract by itself due to aging problem.

Sounds like you have dirt in carburetor.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

This part fits your Leaf Blower. Husqvarna fuel filter. If the fuel filter is clogged, it willrestrict the flow of fuel to the carburetor. As a result, the engine may not start.

Leaf blower not pulling fuel into carbeurator


Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.May need to replace carburetor.

I received an answer for a 25cc gas trimmer, however, my problem was with a Craftsman 32cc Gas Blower. I need to know where all the three gas lines go??


The routing of the fuel lines is the same. If you have 3 lines, that means the primer bulb is not directly mounted to the carb, rather it is connected to the carb with hoses.

Line 1. Comes from the fuel filter in the tank (smaller diameter hose) directly to the inlet port on the carb. This is the port that is opposite the diaphragm on the carb. Diaphragm is held on with 2 or 4 screws through a chrome plate. Make sure to leave enough hose so the fuel filter will fall to the lowest point of the tank when it is being used.

Line 2. Goes from the other port on the carb to the short side of the primer assembly.

Line 3. Goes from the longer port of the primer assembly and returns to the tank. Sometimes this line will have a simple coupler on the inside of the tank, but it is optional and its only function is to keep the line from slipping out. If yours does not have this coupler, just leave an inch or two of line in the tank.

*If both ports on the primer are the same length, you can test to see which is pushing air out...that's where line 3 goes.

Good luck!

No gas when you prime it


1) Check fuel lines from tank for cracks, fuel filter in tank, primer bulb for cracks

2)Remove Carburetor
replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

I am replacing the fuel tank assy and purge bulb (i.e. primer) on my Sears Craftsman model 358.798940. The original plastic tubing was old and brittle and broke apart while disassembling, so I could not...


The order of fuel travel should be:
Fuel filter to fuel hose to Carb's Fuel Supply nipple. (On the main body of the carb)
Primer Plate Nipple on carb to fuel hose to Suction Nipple on Primer Bulb. (It must pull fuel thru the carb, not push)
Pressure Nipple on Primer Bulb to fuel hose to Fuel Tank Return hose.

When correctly installed, the fuel will be PRESSED into the fuel tank via the return hose when primer is pressed in . . . and SUCTIONED out of the tank and into the Carburetor when primer in released.

Hope this helps,
Dolf-
