SOURCE: homelite ut o8107 blower 25cc will only idle

Hello:

Have you Removed the Muffler and Checked the Exhaust Port and Muffler for Carbin Restriction?
Remove the Muffler and Start the Unit. If the Operates Correctly, then the Spark Arrestor Screen is Clogged and the Muffler/Screen Requires Replacing.
Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Not Restricted Also.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck

Respectfully

John

SOURCE: Just bought a used leaf blower, homelite, gas leaks out of the gas tank, where the gas tube fits into it.

"top of the gas tank where the gas tube fits into the tank"

I assume you're describing the gas tank cap. if so, the o-ring is missing from the gas tank cap. You can find those at hardware stores.

SOURCE: How do I replace the fuel filter and the two fuel

Take your Model number of your machine and the model, type, and code of your motor to your local small engine repair shop and have them get you your replacement filter and also pick up new gas line. When you replace your fuel lines do one at a time. All you have to do is pull a fuel line off, cut new line to length and re install. As to the filter in the tank, I usually take a coat hanger and fish it up to the top and then use needle nose pliers to grip it. Then just pull off the old filter and install new one.

good luck

SOURCE: How do I adjust needle valves on a 25cc Homelite

Set the lowend & highend needles to about 1 3/4 to 2 turns each. Choke the carb or prime it, until the carb is wet. Fire up the engine and let it warm up. Let's set the topend first since it's the easier of the two. Go to full throttle. Adjust the topend needle for peak RPM. Leave it wide open for about a minute to see if it changes any. Should the engine go lean, open the lowend needle slightly, if this dosen't work... you will have to adjust the needle valve inside the carb.( I will explain this later) If the topend runs OK, then slowly pull the throttle down until the engine begins to "four cycle" hold the throttle there. Adjust the lowend needle until the "four cycling" barely stops. Now lower the throttle more until it "four cycles" again, and adjust the lowend again. Keep doing this until you reach full idle. Now, from full idle begin to throttle up until the engine starts to bog or hesitate. Open up the lowend needle just enough to eliminate the bog or hesitation.

The fuel line is replaceable by itself, you don't need a new tank. Just make sure you get the same size line or it will leak where it goes into the tank. Any local small engine repair shop should have the line. There are two lines that go into the tank, the pickup line has the filter on it. It not only filters the gas but keeps the end of the line down in the fuel.

Homelite model 26bv how do I attach the filter gas line to the interior gas line


These filters usually get replaced by pushing a new line through the hole in the gas tank from the outside. Once you have the line in an inch or two you can use long tweeters or skinny-long pliers to pull the line out through the filler neck. Try cutting the fuel line tip into a "V" to make it easier to start. A little spit or light oil helps too.

The fuel line provides it own seal on most gas tanks so it should be hard to start otherwise it may be too skinny and allow fuel leaks! If you have a good fuel line already installed you can see if it is long enough to extract from the tank and put the filter on. You can disconnect the fuel line at the carb to give yourself some extra line to work with. Just be careful not to pull it all the way through the tank. Be careful and good luck!

On a homelite model 26 bv blower Does the gas tank filter connect to anything


The filter fits on the end of the fuel pickup line inside the gas tank. If you see the filter just rolling around in the tank it probably has hardened or damaged fuel lines. Size them up and get replacement lines online or at your local outdoor equipment retailer.

I have a Homelite leaf blower that will start and run for a half tank og gas. However when the tank is half empty it stalls out and will not start. If I stop it fill the tank let it sit it will start


Sounds to me as though the fuel line that supplies the carburetor has been pulled out so that it is above the fuel when tank is 1/2 empty, or there is a crack/break in the fuel line inside the tank. Not a hard job to replace the fuel line, but takes patience. If your machine has 2 lines, only take 1 off at a time to avoid confusion as to which one goes where on the carburetor.

The filter is usually most likey, a little long cylinder, that slides inside the entrance of the gas tank. Just keep twisting gently, it should fall and snap it place, and along came filter...LoL :).

Fuel line connections in the tank ?


The one without the filter is ok just being a little inside the tank. Make sure that line is hooked to outlet on the primer that pushes pressure into tank.
