Question about Poulan/Weed Eater No. Te475 952711797 17" Le Gas Trimmer/Edger
Lines were missing i have new fuel lines but dont know which port on carb is intake and which is return
I have that same gas trimmer and i had to replace the fuel lines for it becuase it was leaking very badly.
ok so first use the new fuel line put that on through the fuel tank connect that with the gas and oil filter inside the tank if their is non in the tank then you will need to buy a new oil and gas filter. then take the fuel line you put in the tank connect that with the primmer connect it only to the top connection of the primmer now that another fuel line connect the bottom of the primmer and connect it with the fuel line to the back of the carburetor. now take another fuel line connect the to the fuel tank and put it direcly to the front of the carburetor. oh one more thing make shore the fuel lines arnt to long and not to short. becuase it can get hard to put the trimmer back together.

The Walbro has two connections on it for the fuel line. My Walbro has one connection on the side of the idle screw and main fuel adjusting screw. This connection hooks up to the suction side of the primer bulb. Usually the shorter stem. (You actually **** fuel through the carb instead of pushing it through.) On the other side of the carb is the other hook up. It draws fuel from the tank. This line will connect to the side of the tank that has the filter. The other side of the tank is your return and it hooks to the other connection on the primer bulb. Usually the longer stem.

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 fuel tank.

Yep...I too just bought the p1500 from Amazon (got a full refund and was told to dispose of trimmer) and have the exact same problem, it starts, I even let it warm up for a while, then press the throttle lever and it bogs and wants to die. Well we know that is why it was so cheap. I liked it because it was small and ligh weight. I was told to take it to the nearest dealer (with receipt) to have it fixed for free...but the dealer laughed and asked, who said that they would do it free! So Now I will screw with it and see what I can do. If I get it working properly, I will let you know what I did....If you don't hear from me again, that means I tossed it in the garbage and bought a real one.
