Take a piece of the old fuel line to the hardware store with you. You can either get it by buying a kit or some stores will have bulk tubing they will sell from. Good luck...Lee

I haven't been able to get my trimmer to start since the first day I got it. I think it is not drawing fuel when I prime it. Things to check, or what other causes it might be.


Start by spraying some starter fluid into the carburator. If it starts and dies after few seconds then you most likely have a fuel problem.

Press the primer bulb about 6 times. There should be gasoline flowing through both gas lines the intake and overflow. If not check that the filter ( attached to the end of the intake line ) inside the gas tank is not plugged. It can be removed for testing purposes. Rplacement gas lines and filters are available in places like Sears, Home Depot, Lowes etc.

If the unit does not start with the starting fluid you may have an ignition problem.
Remove and clean the spark plug. Attach the spark plug wire to the plug and hold the threaded part of the plug againt the metal head of the engine. While closely wathing the gap have someone pull the rope and turn the engine over. You should see a small spark jump the gap of the plug.
If not start by replacing the plug ( cheapest, easiest first).
If the unit has gas andspark nd still does not start remove the carburator and disassemble it.
Soak the body in fresh gas for about 10 minutes and blow out the port with small engine carb cleaner ( also avail at the prementioned stores).
Those small carbs don't take much to become clogged.

Replacing broken gaslines... were do they go?


the primer bulb draws gas through the carb 'C' and back to the tank'T' leaving a small amount of fresh gas in the carb.to replace the lines from filter to carb & bulb to tank,you may have to remove handle & split the housing halves to find where lines enter tank.look in tank W/ a flashlight.to replace lines cut new line on an angle,feed a piece of # 14 copper wire through hole from inside tank.slide new line over wire,the wire will help align fuel line with hole.use needle-nose pliers to push line into tank,& to pull it through once you can see it.cut off end of hose you beat up with pliers.push filter on hose to carb.drop it back in tank."T' line is the return.dosn't matter which line is through top or bottom hole.

Echo tiller doesn''t want to run


you may need a diaphram in the carb or the tiny screen (if it has one) is plugged. Also check hoses to and from tank make sure they are good and not soft and gooey. You could draine tank and put pure gas in and use primer bulb to circulate it then remove gas and add mixed gas. long shot but may work, has for me.

Primer bulb on weedeater won't prime


when you prime the bulb it sucks gas from the tank with the small tube, any excess gassed pumped will be fed back to the carb via the big tube leading to the tank. If you prime it and the bulb stays pushed down, then you have a clog or kink. To fix , pull the small tube out of the tank through the fill hole. Pull off the filter on the end and put the tube back in the tank. If it primes, your fuel filter was clogged. If it still wont prime check the hose going to the carb and make sure isnt clogged or kinked.(take of carb and blow in it). If that doesnt fix it take off the bulb from the carb with two screws. The bulb assembly will come off too(rectange metal thing) Take off the two black gaskets, be carefull with them. Take off hoses from carb and bulb asembly. Blow carb cleaner in all holes and over surface. Put back together.
If the carb wont prime and the bulb isnt staying depressed. then you might have a bad bulb or carb gaskets. Make sure hoses are not cracked, cloged, or pinched.

Need manuel to show how gas lines are run to carb. & pump bulb


HOW TO CHANGE FUEL LINE ON McCULL0UGH 2014 CHAIN SAWS.

I have successfully changed the input fuel line by purchasing Tygon tubing from a local lawn equipment dealer. I did not see the box he cut this from, but the tubing I bought measures 0.190" outside diameter. I gave him a piece of the old tubing and he matched it up. A 18 inch piece cost me $1.19.

The routing of the fuel line involves three pieces, one piece from the fuel priming bulb to the carburator is 3 inches long, a piece from the fuel priming bulb to the gas tank is about 4 inches long and the piece from the fuel tank is about 7 inches long. The priming bulb sucks air and fuel from the carburator and dumps it back into the gas tank. Therefore, when you press this repeatedly, gasoline will eventually appear in the bulb when the gas line to the carburator is full of fuel. The bulb may not completely fill, there will always be a little air in the bulb.

The fuel line in has a filter on the end within the fuel tank. If you find this has broken off, as I did, you have to turn the tank upside down and shake the filter and any pieces of broken fuel line out of the tank.

Replacing the fuel lines within the carburator compartment is easy if you remove the carburator first. To work on this you must remove the two screws holding the carburator to the engine. You may need to use a small screw Torx driver, although on my chainsaw, there was also a long straight slot on the head. The line from the priming pump to the carburator goes to the left hand line on the carburetor (as viewing from the top with the blade extending away from you. The input line will go onto the right line on the carburator.

The two lines into the fuel tank are located in the middle of the tank left to right and one about 1/2" above the other. The upper hole is for the fuel intake line. The fuel line passes through this hole and a second hole visible within the tank fill hole.
This was the trickiest hose to replace. How I did it was to use a piece of #12 copper electrical wire stripped out of its insulation. This was fed through the 7-inch Tygon tubing piece until it emerged from the far end. I also found it necessary to put a bull nose end on the Tygon tubing in order to get it to feed into the tank hole visible from the tank fill hole. Why? I don't know, but after 20 minutes of trying to feed the hose (both naked and with the electrical wire inside) into that second hole, I gave it a bull nose on the tubing by careful cutting with sharp scissors and using a sanding block. Perhaps McCullough has a special tool to do this, but a call to their 800 number could not get a knowlegible answer from the parts person.

After the Tygon tubing shows up in the tank fill hole, I pulled it further with needle nose pliers and was able to pull the copper wire back out of the tubing. I then cut the bull nose lead I put on the Tygon tube and installed the filter onto it. I found that a little oil on the nozzle and the carburator lines makes the tubing easier to slip on. The stuff the filter and Tygon tubing back into the tank fill hole and towards the front end of the tank so that it drops into the bottom portion of the tank. After attaching the intake line to the carburator, use the needle nose pliers to pull excess line into the tank.


Reassemble the carburator to the engine and you'll be good for another 10 years of happy chainsawing!

Replacing a fuel line for a Poulan 2175 type 2 chainsaw


Take top cover off(3 screws). Take off the 2 nuts holding the carb on. Pull carb part way out to access the hoses. Remove the 3 old hoses after making a diagram of where they connect. Buy new hoses. Cut one end of the small hose on a bevel, pierce both sides 1/8 th inch from the end with a needle. Thread a thin wire through both holes. Thread both wire ends into the gas tank. Use a hemostat or long needle nose plyers to pull the wires and then hose down into the tank. Attach the weighted fuel filter. The other end of this smaller diameter fuel line goes on the upper nipple on the carb. Take the side cover off (4 screws) to access the primer bulb. Take 2 screws out to remove the bulb which has 2 nipples. The longer nipple connects to the larger diameter hose which goes to the fuel tank. The larger diameter tube has a coupler on the end which is inside the gas tank. It took me an hour to change all 3 hoses.
