They sell primer bulb and fuel line kits at Home Depot for like $6.99 or so...not sure if parts will suit your model, but they might. You would have to order the replacement fuel tank though or search for one on Ebay. You can also try:

Both my Echo line trimmer and Stihl hand held blower. No fuel in the bulb on both, I suspect bad fuel. If so, how do I fix?


Check INSIDE the fuel tank. It is possible the fuel line inside the tank has deteriorated and the filter broke off. That would cause fuel line to FLOAT in the tank instead of lie on the bottom. This could easily be the cause of no fuel in primer/purge bulb. You probably need to:

Install new fuel filter..........Install new fuel Lines.......Install new primer bulb........Clean carburetor.

So in some respects, you are probably correct....no fuel filter equals bad fuel entering carb (but if none in bulb, doubtful much fuel (dried up maybe ) in carb.

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

I have a 2250 Poulan. The fuel lines have been removed. Is this the correct routing for the fuel line? Starting at the filter in the tank,will the line go to the bottom of the carb.? Then the line goes out...


Is there a fix for bar oil running out of the saw all the time until the tank is empty?


there is bad oil line repalce it.

Is this the correct routing for the fuel line? Starting at the filter in the tank,will the line go to the bottom of the carb.? Then the line goes out at the top of the carb. to the primer\'s suction side? Then out of the primer to the fuel tank? This route the primer pulls gas through the carb. Does it make any difference which hole in the tank the lines go to?

YES that correct

Gas lines crumbled and don't know how to route new lines correctly


The small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects directly 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. Again, on the primer bulb, the longer nipple has a line going directly from it to the tank. This is the return line. The shorter nipple on the bub has a line from it going to the metering chamber side of the carb. 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 sometimes the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. Otherwise, the line should enter the tank for about 1/2" or so.

No gas getting from the gas tank to the carb. replaced hoses and filter already. can not even draw gas with primer button.


You either need a new primer bulb (leaking air) or you have the fuel lines routed wrong. Here is the correct fuel line routing just in case:
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.

Troy bilt gas trimmer gas lines broke and now I'm not sure which lines go where.


The gas lines probably broke because of the ethanol-laced gasoline we have to use nowadays. It deteriorates them. If the unit has the external purge/primer bulb, the way mine did, it is not that hard. Just remember...the primer bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to and thru the carb, thus pushing out any air/old fuel in the metering chamber of the carb back to the fuel tank in the return line...that said..
Fuel tank...2 lines...smaller diameter line goes directly to the carb body. There are probably 2 brass nipples on the carb. This line goes to the one on the body opposite the end of the carb with the vent-hole in the cover. This is the fuel pump end...where fresh gas enters the carb.
The larger line out of the fuel tank connects to the longer nipple on the purge/primer bulb. This is the fuel return line.
The remaining fuel line (larger diameter) goes from the vented-cover (has writing on it) end of the carb to the shorter nipple on the purge/primer bulb. This line carrys air and old fuel OUT of the carb to the bulb where it is then PUSHED back to the fuel tank via the return line...so you have a small diameter supply line to carb...an intermediate larger diameter line from the carb to the bulb and finally the larger diameter return line from the bulb BACK to the fuel tank.
Go to a small engine shop and purchase about a foot each of the 2 different diameter fuel lines needed and install those new "Tygon" fuel lines as your fuel line replacement.

Which fuel line "port/inlet" on the Walbro wt-380 goes to the fuel tank? It's on a Craftsman 25cc Gas "Weed Wacker" Line Trimmer purchased in 2002. It has Walbro WT-380 carburetor with external primer...


Usually the line with the filter on it that comes from the tank goes to carb. inlet first which is most likely close to the bottom side of the carb.nearest to the engine,then the outlet or return line on the carb.goes to the inlet side of the primer and the outlet side of the primer goes back to the tank. The primer draws fuel through the carb to the primer to the tank if its not? then correct the line connections until it does

Replaced gas tank and primer bulb on my Poulan Leafblower FL1500 and it appears I'm not getting gas into the carb. Any ideas as to what my be the cause?


I assume the new tank came with new fuel lines and filter in it.
First be sure you have all the lines hooked up correctly. There should be a main line from the tank ( has the fuel line on the end of it in the tank) to the fuel pump side of the carb. Then there should be a line leaving the metering side of the carb to the primer bulb then from the primer bulb returning to the tank. When you press the primer bulb you should see it **** the fuel into the carb then from the carb into the primer bulb then back into the tank.
If the fuel lines are all hooked up correctly then you should rebuild the carb.

Poulan 2050 chainsaw. Fuel line routing. Replaced all fuel lines. Primer bulb is marked Tank and Carb side. Tank side is for larger line and runs into tank and fuel filter. Carb side is smaller diameter...


Replaced my fuel lines on poulan 2050 today. The large diameter line is a return line from the primer to the tank. The smaller diameter line is the supply line from the tank to the carb. You need to cut this line and run a second piece of small diameter line from the card to the primer. I'm not sure if it makes a difference which of the two stems on the carb is the inlet or outlet line. I used the top stem as the inlet, and connected the bottom stem to the primer. My chainsaw started right up. So I either got lucky or maybe it doesn't matter.
