SOURCE: Hole at top of fuel tank

yes two tube always go into the gas tanks. you should be able to find the connection were that tube is suppose to go. if you have a tube in the tank with the filter on end you know it(the missing fuel line) just needs a atraight tube into the tank from a barbed port(were the other end hooks to). let me know if you do not understand.

no you can buy replacement fuel line but you must reconnect the filter in the tank that line goes to the bottom of the carby then out the top of the carby to the inlet on the primer then out of the primer and back to the tank.

SOURCE: Homelite ST-185 (15039A). Route new fuel line.

If you look closely there should be 2 holes in the fuel tank, also if you look inside the fuel tank there should be some remaining pieces of the fuel line and a fuel filter. If this has been sitting for any length of time you will also want to replace the fuel filter.

Now comes the fun... or a challenge

To start with you will need 2 sizes of fuel line ( go to a small engine repair shop) while you are replacing things you may want to buy a new primer bulb also.

to insert the fuel lines into the tank you will have to cut a tapered tail about 2 " long so that you can grab the fuel line with a needle nose and pull them through and out of the tank so that you can trim off the tapered tails. On one install the fuel filter and stick back into the tank, on the other trim the tapered tail off and pull the line back into the tank but leave about 1" sticking through the tank.

Now hook up you fuel lines to the carb and/ or primer bulb

Fill tank half full with fuel ... now test the installation if it doesn't pump fuel but instead you can hear it blow bubbles in the tank it is simple just reverse your lines on the carb / primer bulb

Retest if it works like it should you are ready to attempt to start it... good luck

The fuel lines can be purchased separately usually by the foot from any outdoor power equipment dealer. They can be easily installed by cutting one end at an angle and "feeding" it through holes. Homelite fuel lines are of a different OD than most so make sure you get the proper size. The most popular size for Homelite is OD .203 ID .04.

My chain saw 14" homelite


primers pull fuel from the carb and dumps it back into the tank, so if the bulb will not prime the chances are the fuel filter in the tank is blocked, pull the fuel hose through the filer hole and replace the filter on the end.

Homelite chain saw fuel system


The line at the back of the tank gets the filter (check it for plugging) and the one nearest the cap doesn't use a filter (it is the return line from the primer bulb). The filtered line goes directly to the carburetor inlet port and the outlet port allows fuel to be pulled through the carburetor and out to the primer port. Check and replace any fuel lines that are in poor condition. If the engine has been running with the intake filter missing, the interior of the carburetor may be full of debris. Remove, dismantle, and clean the carburetor interior. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for an excellent 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting. Hope this helps!

Yes it makes a difference, you ALWAYS draw fuel through the fuel filter as it typically has a check valve but I strongly recommend that you do not buy parts for this carb, they are super sensative and inexpensive, buy a new one and save yourself hours of frustration.

I have a homelite xl, UT# 10655- the chain oil seems to be leaking and coming out of the exhaust and continues to leak after shutting off the chainsaw. Any ideas on the possible cause?


Your saw is listed as an "XL Chain Saw UT-10655" here:
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.
See the "Engine Internals" print. The oiler appears to above the clutch and driven by a pressurized tank. Venting the tank (opening the oil cap) may help help with weeping but only emptying the tank will stop it.

If no oil from engine oiler hole I suspect a failed hose or connection. Use the IPL to inspect and repair as needed.

Oil System Plugged.
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. Please take extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.

Fuel Line Deteriorated


the piese on the end of the fuel line is a pickup filter. if you can blow thru it, then it is still good and you dont have to replace it, but if you want to, you can get them and the fuel line from your local small engine shop. if you have a menards or home depot in your area they ussually carry the line & filters aswell. you will need to take a piese of the old line with you, so you can match the size. the line going into the tank usually seal due to the hole being smaller than the plastic hose, which makes feeding it interresting. i just heat a 1/4 inch or so of the end just enough to stretch it out. this causes the diameter to shrink,then melt the tip& roll it into a point. as you feed it thru, use a couple drops of oil so it pulls easy and does'nt stretch(which will effect the seal). pull enough hose thru so that the filter will lay flat in the bottom right hand corner (as looking from rear of saw toward the tip of the chain) of the tank. this ensures that you pickup fuel when you tip the saw on its side.
