Question about Toro Garden

1 Answer

I have a old toro weed eater and had a new carburator put on it 2 years ago. It has always been hard to start since then. There are 2 fuel lines. One comes from the primer bubble to the fuel tank and the other goes down the side of the fuel tank and I cannot find where that second fuel line goes. Please help

The second fuel line should go from the fuel tank to your carburetor...

Starting procedure


Terry: According to eHow.com:

"
  • Put on a pair of safety glasses. Remove the fuel cap from the Weed Eater and set it aside. Fill the fuel tank with unleaded gasoline that has been mixed with quality 2-stroke oil in a 40:1 ratio. Replace the fuel cap.
  • Move the Weed Eater to a safe place and lay it flat on the ground. Depress the fuel bulb located beneath the carburetor approximately six times to prime the engine. Press it slowly so that fuel has adequate time to traverse the fuel line.
  • Slide the handlebar-mounted engine "On/Stop" switch to the "On" position. Slide the choke lever beneath the fuel tank to the "Full" position.
  • Depress the "Throttle Lock" lever located beside the engine "On/Stop" switch. Keeping the lever depressed, squeeze the throttle trigger. Release the throttle lock. This sequence holds the trigger in the depressed position, which aids in starting the Weed Eater.
  • Roll the Weed Eater so that it is resting on the engine and the trimmer head shield only. This will allow the spinning trimmer head to avoid contact with the ground. Brace the Weed Eater by holding it to the ground with one hand. Using your other hand, pull the starter rope quickly until the engine begins to run. Do not pull the rope more than a dozen times. If it fails to start by then, squeeze the throttle trigger and continue to pull until the engine starts.
  • Allow the Weed Eater to warm up for about 15 seconds, then slide the choke lever to the "Off" position. Let the trimmer run for another minute without touching the throttle lever. After the Weed Eater has warmed up, squeeze the throttle trigger once to disengage the throttle lock. The trimmer is now operational.

    How to change the fule line of weed eater?


    There should be clamps on either end of the fuel line..1.. empty the fuel out of the weed wacker ..2..loosen the clamps..3..remove the hose ..make sure you are careful when replacing any fuel lines..so you dont puncture a brand new one..tighten the clamps good but not too hard or you can pucturethe hose that way too and make sure its the right one for that model. make sure the line is also fuel resistant..gasoline can eat through the wrong type of line. You should be able to buy the fuel line and clamps at any hardware store:)remember to ask for help from someone in the right department

    Put new spark plug in new gas clean filter followed starting directions want start


    The fuel system may need tending to. It may need new fuel lines, a cleaned fuel filter and the carburetor cleaned and adjusted. If this is an older unit, (even a couple years old) it may require some new internal carburetor parts as well. I don't like being the bearer of bad news, but this isn't always an easy fix. Your specific problem has to be diagnosed and by process of elimination, the problem resolved.

    Replacing fuel lines on ryobi weed eater,need


    This is an ongoing issue for users, and rightfully so. Small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects 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. Years ago on 2-stroke trimmers, primers were not even used,...you choked the carb with a slide lever and gravity let fuel enter the carb from above...a few pulls, a "pop"...slide it off of choke and away you went.
    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 the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

    My 2 cycle poulan pro weed eater won't start. it's about a year old and worked fine 2 weeks ago


    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 day light 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.

    Took tank off weed eater and not sure how the lines go back on


    The line with the fuel filter in the end comes out of the tank and it goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The other line comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb, and the third section goes from the top fitting on primer bulb to top fitting on carburator. Got it? lol Hope this helped and best wishes.

    Can't find fuel filter on Poulan Pro weed eater. Acts as if it's fuel starved


    Where is the fuel filter?
    All gasoline engines have a fuel filter on the end of the fuel line in the fuel tank. Weed Eater recommends changing the fuel filter yearly. To remove the filter,
    1. drain the fuel from the unit,
    2. Pull the filter from the tank through the gas tank opening and remove it from the line,
    3. Install the new filter on the fuel line and drop back in tank.
