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. The plastic coupling goes on the end of this line, inside the tank. This keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

(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.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

    Thanks for the rating

    This was great information! My three year old somehow broke the lines before the second use. I am wondering where you can get the replacement tubing / parts from. Thanks!

    You should be able to get the fuel lines at your local auto parts store. Just remember to take a small piece of the old line, if you still have them, so they can mach them up.

It was running after a carb re-build. now my bulb isn't pulling gas when i pump it


The bulb and/or fuel lines could have a small hole in them, losing vacuum, introducing air into the fuel system and causing problem. First off, check inside the fuel tank and make sure the fuel filter is attatched to fuel line. This is a common place for the line to break and if it does, it floats, introducing LOTS of air and a malfunctioning purge/primer bulb. When you depress the bulb, the vacuum created actually allows gas to Flow to the carburetor as it is pushing any air/old gas back to the fuel tank. So, in summary. Carefully check the condition of ALL of the fuel lines ,fuel filter and the bulb itself. If they are dry, non-flexible, or cracked, they need to be replaced.

Put a new carburator on and don't know how to hook


Hi janemueller...

Normally the big line will be the line the fuel filter is connected to inside of the tank.The smaller of the two lines is the return to the fuel tank from the carburetor after it is pumped thru the carburetor by the primer bulb.

I need a routing of the fuel lines from filter to, primer-in, primer-out, to carburator, out of carburator, back to tank. this is on a poulan chainsaw, 2550. Mod 952-05138. please respond.MARRY CHRISTMAS.


There are two holes in the fuel tank, it does not matter which line goes to which hole. The lines should run as follows: One line from the tank should have a filter on it, connect this line to the primer bulb and put a mark on it with a sharpie. Another line should run from the bulb to the carb, and the last should run from the carb back into the tank. After they are all in place, pump the bulb and watch the gas in the marked line. If gas is flowing from the tank through the marked line into the bulb and on to the carb you are done. If gas is flowing towards the tank in the marked line or not at all reverse the two lines on the bulb and you're done.

Typical fuel line routing2.gif is:

One line (the one with the fuel filter in the end of it) comes out of the fuel tank2.gif and goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The second line comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb. The third section of line goes from the top fitting on primer bulb to top fitting on the carburator. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Nedd to put back the gas line


This is the typical fuel line routing on many models: One line ( the one with the fuel filter in the end of it) comes out of the fuel tank and goes to the lower port on the carburator. The second line goes from the fuel tank to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb. The third section goes from the top port on the primer bulb to the top port on the carburator. Hope this helps and best wishes.

One fuel line (the one with the fuel filter in the end of it), comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The second line comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb. The third section of fuel line goes from the top fitting on primer bulb to the top fitting on carburator. That should be the correct fuel line routing. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Hi this is the way it should go: 1 from the filter in the tank to the bottom of the carby,2 from the top of the carby to the inlet on the primer,3 from the outlet on the primer back to the tank as this is the return line nothing goes onto it.

Primer pump rotten need replacement show parts page


The hoses run through a hole into the gas tank, they are fitted with a filter inside the tank. Drain the tank, and manipulate the hose end to where you can grab it throught he filler hole, Remove the filter, run new gas lines into the tank and through the filler hole to replace the filter, reattach to the carburator. The primer bulb should have 4 small screws attaching it to the carburator. Remove the screws, place in new primer bulb, and you should be back to trimming asap.

Have old Eager ****** 280 Gas Trimmer, Replaced Gas line, cleaned filter, tubing and Primmer Pump return line, still won't Prime, and start engine. Pust some gas in spark plug, engine run for a few...


If the bulb is good and it still won't prime, then you have either one more tube (there are usually 3) to replace, OR, the gas pickup in the tank has a plugged filter or a plugged line. I'd check it first.

Need manuel to show how gas lines are run to carb. & pump bulb


HOW TO CHANGE FUEL LINE ON McCULL0UGH 2014 CHAIN SAWS.

I have successfully changed the input fuel line by purchasing Tygon tubing from a local lawn equipment dealer. I did not see the box he cut this from, but the tubing I bought measures 0.190" outside diameter. I gave him a piece of the old tubing and he matched it up. A 18 inch piece cost me $1.19.

The routing of the fuel line involves three pieces, one piece from the fuel priming bulb to the carburator is 3 inches long, a piece from the fuel priming bulb to the gas tank is about 4 inches long and the piece from the fuel tank is about 7 inches long. The priming bulb sucks air and fuel from the carburator and dumps it back into the gas tank. Therefore, when you press this repeatedly, gasoline will eventually appear in the bulb when the gas line to the carburator is full of fuel. The bulb may not completely fill, there will always be a little air in the bulb.

The fuel line in has a filter on the end within the fuel tank. If you find this has broken off, as I did, you have to turn the tank upside down and shake the filter and any pieces of broken fuel line out of the tank.

Replacing the fuel lines within the carburator compartment is easy if you remove the carburator first. To work on this you must remove the two screws holding the carburator to the engine. You may need to use a small screw Torx driver, although on my chainsaw, there was also a long straight slot on the head. The line from the priming pump to the carburator goes to the left hand line on the carburetor (as viewing from the top with the blade extending away from you. The input line will go onto the right line on the carburator.

The two lines into the fuel tank are located in the middle of the tank left to right and one about 1/2" above the other. The upper hole is for the fuel intake line. The fuel line passes through this hole and a second hole visible within the tank fill hole.
This was the trickiest hose to replace. How I did it was to use a piece of #12 copper electrical wire stripped out of its insulation. This was fed through the 7-inch Tygon tubing piece until it emerged from the far end. I also found it necessary to put a bull nose end on the Tygon tubing in order to get it to feed into the tank hole visible from the tank fill hole. Why? I don't know, but after 20 minutes of trying to feed the hose (both naked and with the electrical wire inside) into that second hole, I gave it a bull nose on the tubing by careful cutting with sharp scissors and using a sanding block. Perhaps McCullough has a special tool to do this, but a call to their 800 number could not get a knowlegible answer from the parts person.

After the Tygon tubing shows up in the tank fill hole, I pulled it further with needle nose pliers and was able to pull the copper wire back out of the tubing. I then cut the bull nose lead I put on the Tygon tube and installed the filter onto it. I found that a little oil on the nozzle and the carburator lines makes the tubing easier to slip on. The stuff the filter and Tygon tubing back into the tank fill hole and towards the front end of the tank so that it drops into the bottom portion of the tank. After attaching the intake line to the carburator, use the needle nose pliers to pull excess line into the tank.


Reassemble the carburator to the engine and you'll be good for another 10 years of happy chainsawing!
