Toro 51992 weedwacker -Won't start - Fuel Filter line

Toro 51992 weedwacker won't start. The gas line with the fuel filter on it was just laying inside the gas tank. Took the gas tank off, so I could check the lines. The lines seem ok. Now I'm trying to figure out were the line with the fuel filter hooks back too. There's a rubber seal with two holes in it...one for the primer bulb and a second for the ??main line. Does the fuel filter line hook up to the primer bulb, or the main line?

Best Poulan Engine Match (probably real manufacturer):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/BC2400-Gas-Trimmer-Type-6/75.BC2400-Gas-Trimmer-Type-6.1.59.1.html

My decisions are being driven by my experience with Poulan chainsaws. Small hose in tank (long enough to reach all corners), filter on bottom, connects to lowest connection on carburetor. Small hose on upper carburetor connection to small fitting on primer. Large hose from large connection on primer through largest tank hole, roughly mid tank long. nothing on bottom. I suggest you leave the 2 connections on the carburetor long enough they can be swapped (just in case) then try it. if no go swap them.

Typical fuel system and a suggestion or two:

This is how I would configure it if a chainsaw, doubtful they would do something completely different. In defense of Jerry, he knows how it should be done, clarity of instruction could use some help. Good Luck. HTH

SOURCE: My Craftsman 17cc gas weed trimmer wouldn't start.

Hi There, Check the primer bulb for tare or pin holes. Replace it. Check and clean carb jet it maybe plugged with debree. Also check for spark which you didn't say. Replace with correct plug.
Note; Do not use strong cleaners on rubber seals (O rings and gaskets) They dry up and crack.
If needed use a dabble of grease on seals

that line should be longer, it contains the filter which is the pick up, and should rest inside the tank fully,, see if its possible to pull that line farther into the tank, its not going to start until the primer bulb fills

You probably have a bad hose or a bad hose connection that is sucking mostly air instead of delivering full fuel to the carburetor!

How far in the gas tank does a toro trimmer fuel line need to go -- I assume not very far and not as far down as the filtered gas line, correct?


The gas line with the weighted fuel filter on it should lay across the bottom of it (somewhere near the opposite side) and the purge/return line only needs to enter the fuel tank 1/2" to3/4" to work.

Weedwacker won't stay running


replace the fuel lines and check that the filter in the fuel tank( its on the end of the intake fuel hose) is clean. If there is an air leak somewhere in the old lines it will cause the trimmer not to get enough gas.Then clean the carburetor with carb cleaner- take the carb off by removing the air filter first then undo the two nuts holding on the carb and take off accelerator cable remembering which hole it came from. spray the hole carb with the cleaner on the inside and outside then soak it in the cleaner trying to get any dirt out. put it back together and it should start...if not you might need a new diaphragm in the carb.

Weedwacker won't start


Is there an air lock in the line. Remove the lines and insert only one at a time and see if one will take fuel and the other none? Also, check carb float to make sure its not stuck open intaking fuel constantly flooding bowl
