Normally one fuel line has a small filter on the end of it. that one needs to be exactly the same size. that one sucks up the gas and sends it to the engine. the other fuel line is for the excess gas / air to return to the gas tank and keeps it from spilling all over you / or wasting fuel. it can be shorter but is required to be inside the gas tank to recycle the unused fuel

How to change fuel line on craftsman blower


Before you start take a picture of where the old lines are connected to the carb and the primer bulb for future reference.
To replace the line pull the spark plug wire from the plug. Remove the old line from the tank and remove the fuel filter from the line. Take new larger line and cut it on a 45 degree angle/or trim as necessary so you can grip it from inside the tank and pull it into the tank. Perform the same operation on the smaller line as well. Be sure to leave enough line for the fuel filter to reach the bottom of the tank. Install the fuel filter. The other small line is a vent line and only needs to come inside the tank not go to the bottom in the fuel.
Good luck.

Fuel line in tank dry rotted how do you replace


Hi classic11369...

Remove the old fuel line and filter from the tank...
You will insert a wire a little smaller than the diameter of the inside of the fuel line, and you will bend a small hook on the end of the line to fit over the fuel line (be sure to use a small wire) .
Lubricate the first 1 inch of fuel line with vasoline lightly...using your fingers or neednose pliers collapse the fuel line and insert it into the fuel tank, entend the fuel line long enought to go out of the fuel tank so you can reconnect the fuel filter...then pull some of the fuel line back into the fuel tank...
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

I need to know how the fuel lines are hooked up in my ryobi gas trimmer. All of the fuel lines rotted out. I took them out and I need to know the correct connection sequences (what goes where).


line runs from little filter in tank to carb.
line from carb. to primer bulb
line from primre bulb back to gas tank.
lines are 2 sizes
need to cut at angle end of lines in tank so you can get them thru holes
and grab with needle nose plyers and pull them thru.
make sure you put the little filter on end before you pull line thru and leave
enough so filter can move around the whole tank.
second line in tank is smaller and need to cut and pull it thru hole in tank to primer bulb

I have a 1994 Gran Marquis. Fuel lines are rotting and leaking


Just get a piece of the rotting fuel line so that you will be assured of getting the right size. Take it to a shop that sells car accessories, and ask them for enough to do your car. Also get new clamps. Start at the fuel tank, undo the clamp, pull off the old hose , put on the new one, do up the new clamp, and then just follow the old hose along, replacing it with the new one as you go. At the far end. do the same... undo the old clamp, put the new hose and clamp on. But I forgot to tell you about the fuel filter. Replace this while you are doing this job.

No full speed then dies


Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside
