You will need the correct size fuel line first. Follow this:

1. Remove the old filter/weight from the fuel tank.
2. Take a new fuel line piece about 8 inches long and cut about a 45 degree angle cut on one end.
3. Lightly moisten the cut end of the fuel line and insert it into the tank from the outside, pushing it in while turning as far as possible.
4. Use a needle nose plyers to reach in and pull the line to the fuel line cap. Cut the line and replace the filter.
5. Pull the line back the way you put it in leaving about 4 inches within the tank and re-attach to the carburetor or primer bulb (depending on the actual model/age)

It will work, but it is extreemly important to have the correct size fuel line to work with.

    Thank you. I have been searching this question for days. My tank filter fell out and I did know if I needed a new tank or if I could just get a new hose, Is a garrmot necessary? Who thought of this design, anyways!

How to get new plastic fuel lines in fuel tank in my weed-eater hedge trimmer. the line is larger than the hole in the tank.


Oftentimes it helps to use scissors to trim back a portion of the new line. Start at the bottom and cut upwards at an angle. Put some lubricant (WD40, perhaps) on the line and slide the sharp point into the fuel tank. Using needle nose pliers, grab the line and pull it through. This will only work if you have the correct size line. If the new line you are using is too large, you probably can't pull it through.

Repairing fuel line on craftsman 32cc weed trimmer.


Cut the end of the line at a sharp angle. Spray WD-40 on the line and fuel tank hole. Slowly screw the line in the tank far enough so you can connect the fuel filter if you are replacing that line. If not just push the line into the tank if you have a two line system. Remember on the fuel primer, the long tip has the line going to the tank, and the short tip has the fuel line going to the carb.

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


The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter, fuel line goes from the carb. to the bottom of the tank. It should rest comfortably on the bottom of the tank. The other line should go from the primer bulb to just inside the gas tank, (about an inch).
HINT: Cut the fuel lines at an angle before inserting them into the gas tank. This will allow you to get them in much easier.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

I have a 32cc crasftzman weed wacker need how to


This can be a little tricky, the filter is in the tank connected to the line. The line is pulled through a hole in the tank which seals only because the line is the correct outter diameter to seal the hole and not collapse the interior. Fuel line and filters are available at most places that carry outdoor power equipment parts but you must make sure the line is the exact size inner and outter as the original.
If the trimmer has a primer bulb the line goes from the tank to the bulb and then to the carburetor, a second line goes from the carburetor back to the tank, don't get them mixed up.
