Yes it makes a difference, you ALWAYS draw fuel through the fuel filter as it typically has a check valve but I strongly recommend that you do not buy parts for this carb, they are super sensative and inexpensive, buy a new one and save yourself hours of frustration.

I have an older homelite leaf blower that has not been in use for several years. I put new fuel lines, fuel filter and spark plug on it and clealed resister in muffler. When I try to start it, it will...


The gaskets and the pliable diaphragms in the carb have dried out. Therefore, the carb cannot deliver fuel to the engine. Disassembly and cleaning of the carb will be required (esp. if very old fuel left to dry inside it). After that, a rebuild kit or at the least; a gasket and diaphragm kit will need to be installed. This will then enable fuel to get to the engine. If you repost the exact model number of this machine, I can reply with the part number for a rebuild or gasket and diaphragm kit. Your unit has probably a Zama (will be wrote on the cover with vent-hole) or Walbro carburetor. Kits are available for both.

What is the carb model # for zr05870, Its a Walbro carb?


From the pictures in the parts breakdown, this appears to be one of the newer model rotary-type carburetors. It is listed as part number 308028001. There is no mention of this machine in the Walbro carburetor application guide however. After viewing the picture and with the prefix of the carburetor known, you should be able to locate it on the Walbro website. I have the link to your machine's parts breakdown and to the Different Walbro models. Please view:

Where does the fuel line from tank with filter fit on walbro carb.also where does the primer line go?


The fuel line from the tank fits to the main fuel inlet on the carb ( the inlet nearest to the alloy pump cover secured by a single screw), the other conection on the carb has a pipe that conects to the shortest conection on the back of the primer ( suction side ) a pipe then goes from the longer conection on the primer ( pressure side ) back to the tank, it just pushes into the top of the tank.
So to recap the primer pulls fuel from the carb, and dumps it back into the tank.

Where do I connect the fuel lines on my ryobi weedeater?


I have Ryobi775r string trimmer with walbro WT526 carb. The fuel lines connect 3 parts eg. gas tank, bulb (mine is a separate bulb not part of carb.) and the carb. The bulb has 2 fittings- a short and a long one. The carb also has 2 fittings- one on top (vertcle) and one on the bottom (L shape). The gas tank has two holes in the bottom one for over flow line and the other for fuel inlet to the carb. This has a filter in the gas tank. Now the connections- connect the long fitting on bulb to the tank. this is the overflow. Connect the short fittin on bulb to the carb top (verticle) fitting. Connect the fuel line (with filter - it is in the tank) streight to the L fitting on the bottom of the carb. Make sure the fuel lines are of right diameter. Too big-and you will have leaks. You are done connecting the fuel lines. just for info. the bulb is there just to pull a vavcume in carb so that the fuel is sucked into the carb and is present there when you start the engine. Hope it helps. Good luck.

Parts number


You need to know if it is a walbro or a zama carb. to start with.
then look closely at the carb. and find #`s
very small

walbro will be wt or wa then some #`s
zama will be c1q or c1u and some #`s on the opposite side of carb.
Walbro will be on the same side

you need to know the carb. #`s so a kit can be found for that particular carb. IE: complete kit or diaphram kit

Can't figure out type of carburetor on my leaf blower.


I have seen 2 different carburetors used on this unit. A Walbro and a Zama. You will need to get the information off the carb. (Walbro WYC-10 or Zama K39A) are the two I have seen, but you need to be sure what yours is. Then purchase the correct O/H kit and rebuild it.

You need to rebuild the carburetor. Go to m-and-d.com then parts diagram then illustrated parts online then parts look up then under select OEM select Homelite then do as instructed. You should find the parts you need and hopefully the parts breakdown for the carb. this will help you in the rebuild. If it does not have the parts breakdown for the carb. find what mfg and model carb. it is then go to that site for breakdown.
