Question about Garden

I have a Weedeater Featherlite Model FL26 and I had some issues with the primer bulb and fuel lines. After talking with krbjmpr on here I was able to get that taken care of but now the thing won't start. I have not yet checked for spark but it has new fuel and I cleaned the carburetor while I was in the area. Any ideas?

    Where is the fuel pump? I replaced the primer bulb and fuel lines and I know that the fuel is at least getting to the carb.

First check the voltage at spark plugs to coil and also check the coil to spark plug connections.Also check if the fuel is reaching to the fuel lines.Unplug the fuel pump and check if the fuel gets out of fuel pump.If yes then quickly reconnect the pump. Keep updated.Thanks.

    I replaced both fuel lines and the primer bulb. I have to check the spark yet.

    Ok.If the fuel lines are replaced then fuel blockage issue is not there.Get the spark checked.
    check the voltage at spark plugs to coil and also check the coil to spark plug connections.

Why my weedeater idle to high and why air bubble in the primer bulb?


Its not un common to have air in the primer bulb, Check for a possible air leak in the system. This will make the saw idle higher than normal if its sucking air from elsewhere.

Easy way to install fuel line and primer bulb return line into gas tank


Chainsaw fuel lines enter the gas tank from holes in top of tank. They are sized for a tight fit to prevent leakage. Make it easy on yourself when pushing the line through the tank by cutting a long lengthwise taper cut with razor knife 3 inches or longer to easily feed through that tight hole. Once started you will then have to grab it through the gas cap hole with needle nose pliers, then cut the tapered end flush and add fuel filter. Readjust inside length by pulling from above, then cut to length to upper carb fitting. If connecting to primer bulb a filter is not required and make sure the line goes to fitting on primer bulb marked tank.

What would be wrong with my weedeater when i press the primer bulb gas will start to come out of the gas cap ?


You could have a clogged tube from the primer into the carb, but it also sounds like the fuel tank is overfilled.

Well I have used this search engine called google. Though it seems to be unknown on this board I would go there www.google.com and do the following search" Weedeater Featherlite Plus Fl26 manual" This will create a number of hits or links. You click on one that has the company name in the url and find customer service or downloads. Click around and eventually you will find what you seek.
Spread the word about google, it saves a bunch of time instead of asking strangers to do google searches for you.

My featherlite FL26 weedeater stalls immediately after starting.


I would start by emptying out all the old fuel,then pull the recoil several times to clear the carburetor. Then add fresh oil/gas mix,should be 40:1 which is 3.2oz of two cycle oil to one gallon of gas. Also check the fuel line and primer line for good connection to the carb. and make sure the spark plug is good.

I need a fuel line schematic for a WeedEater brand Featherlite Plus weedeater


Presuming the primer bulb is on top of the carb....Fuel filter line out of gas tank goes to the lower part if carburetor body. The other line (normally larger in size) coming out of the fuel tank goes to the primer bulb outlet on the top of carb.
If the primer/purge bulb is not on the carb, things are a little different. The fuel filter line out of the tank still goes directly to the carb, as the bulb will pull old fuel/air out of the carb allowing fresh fuel to flow in and pushes old fuel/air back to the fuel tank.
Fresh fuel in, old fuel out of the carb...you can hook up a piece of fuel line to the bulb and tell which one is pulling and which one is pushing..or depress it with your fingers on it...either way you can tell.

The filter in the gas tank came off.


The filter should only fit in the end of one of the lines (probably the larger diameter one) The smaller line usually goes from the tank to the primer bulb and the larger one goes to the carburator. The filter just sticks in the end of the fuel line.
