Your Craftsman trimmer is made my Poulan/Weedeater and uses 2 different sized lines. The smaller diameter line is the fule supply line and runs from the pickup filter in the tank to the supply side of the carb. The supply side is usually the lower of the fuel nipples on the carb. Make sure to put enough line in the tank so the filter can drop to the lowest point of the tank while you are trimming. The larger diameter line is the return line, and will connect to the nipple on the carb that is closest to the primer bulb. From the factory, the return line went into the tank and had a small clear plasted connector on the end to prevent it from slipping back out of the tank. This fitting does not connect to anything in the tank, it is merely a return line. If the return line fitting is missing, just make sure to leave a couple of inches of line in the tank. If the filter is missing, you MUST replace it...it will save you from having to clean the carb out every 10 minutes of run time.
Good luck!

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.

I have a Polan Model 2375 Wild Thing Chain Saw. The fuel lines have deterioated and I need to know correct routing of fuel lines. The primer bulb has to line connectors, one small diameter and one large...


A Poulan IPL for your saw “2375LE Gas Saw Type?” (LE is code for WildThing; if your saw is beyond serial -2 look at a saw without the LE; it makes little difference to the fuel system) can be found here:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

  • Small hose (filter on bottom) long enough to reach all corners inside tank, to lower carburetor connection. Please leave the 2 carburetor connections long enough to reverse until the saw is running.
  • Upper carburetor connection, small hose to suction side of primer.
  • Pressure side of primer (large hose) to tank fitting.
The IPL is deceptive it appears the filtered hose connects to the primer; it does not.

A typical fuel system and suggestion or 2 follow:

Replace fuel lines WeedEater FL 1500 Blower


On the FL1500:
  • The Smaller line goes on the Lower inlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to the gas filter inside the gas tank.
  • The Larger line goes on the upper outlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to a fitting that holds this tube from coming out on the gas tank .This tube is only for Air, it helps fill the primer bulb when pushed.
I hope this helps.
Mechs correct me if I have made a mistake.

Reattaching fuel line to gas tank.


Get a new line the same size and length of the old one. Get the filter out of the tank. If it is as I think, it has a barbed end that goes into the outlet hole. Take your new line, fit it onto the filter end and make sure it is all the way on. Take the other end of the line and cut a taper on the end. Thread the end through the tank, into the outlet hole and aissist it so your filter sticks through the tank hole. There was a ring on the outside of the tank, on the line. Take that ring and run the ring over the end of the tube up to the filter bottom. Make sure it goes all the way up to the bottom, and tight.Square off the end and slip it onto the carb...Good luck...Lee

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.

Lose gas line poulan weed eater


The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter of the two fuel lines, goes from the carburetor to the bottom of the tank. Leave enough slack in this line so that the filter that attaches to the end will rest comfortably at the bottom of the tank.
The other fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank, (about an inch). make sure that you get the right size fuel lines.
(HINT): when feeding the lines through the tank holes, cut the lines at an angle. They will feed much easier into the holes. You can than cut them off square, once you know that you have enough to work with.

My homelite weed eater sx-135 the fuel filter broke of the tube


The longer, and sometimes smaller in diameter fuel line, goes from the carburetor to the bottom of the tank. This line, which has the filter attached to the end, should rest comfortably on the bottom of the tank.
The other fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank, (about an inch, with that very small piece of plastic attached to it. This piece of plastic keeps this line from pulling out of the gas tank. this line serves as an overflow from carb.
