You will not need to remove the gas tank or take the gas tank apart. Follow these instructions:
1. Disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor. You may need to cut the line pull it off.
2. Push the fuel line back through the gas tank. At the end of the fuel line is the fuel filter/weight that should be moving around within the gas tank.
3. You should be able to pull the filter/weight out of the fuel tank through the neck using a needle nose pliers. Insure the fuel filter is cleaned out before you re-assemble.

Note: The fuel line that you use as a replacement must be the same diameter of the fuel line you are removing. If you cannot find the fuel line at your local mower shop, try Lowes Hardware as they do stock it in the lawnmower section.

To reassemble: Take about 7 inches of correct fuel line and cut a 45 degree angle cut at one end. That end is threaded back through the tank through the small hole. Push as far as you can and then reach in and pull it to the neck. Cut the straight, attach the filter/weight and pull the line back through.

How do the fuel lines in a weedeater trimmer pe550 hook up inside the gas tank


I have an older model that has a weighted filter in the tank. The filter flops around and can 'fall' into the fuel no matter which way you tilt the trimmer/tank. You should have one in your tank. Feed in the new line and make the end come out the gas cap. Push the filter/weight into the end of the fuel line. Pull the extra fuel line out of the tank to match the original position. You should have cut the new line to approximately the proper or same length as the old fuel line with an angle cut so you could push it into the tank.

I have a weedeater xt 200 trimmer. The parts in


The tube in the tank is the fuel pickup line and goes directly to the carburetor. You will need to get NEW fuel lines. Fish or shake the old parts out of the fuel tank after draining. Inside the tank will be a small length of smaller diameter fuel line that connects to the small fuel filter and there will be a small nylon line connector that is plugged into the end of the larger diameter fuel line which is the fuel return line from the primer bulb back to the fuel tank. That line ends just inside the fuel tank and is held there by the small nylon line connector. The other line (smaller diameter) needs some length inside the tank so it can flop around as you move the machine enabling it to always pick up fuel. 6" or so is about right from the hole in the bottom (or top) of the tank to the fuel filter. Buy long enough lengths of fuel line that they can be inserted into the tank and pulled thru the fill cap area and then have the parts put back on them and then cut to the correct length from the fuel tank to the carburetor and/or primer bulb. Buy about 1 foot of each size line needed. Small engine repair shops have it and sell it..not expensive.

Dry rotted tubing on my weedeater blower.


Have it replaced at a lawnmower repair shop.
1.) Have them check the grommet (black round rubber like a thick coin with 2 or 3 holes), replace it if it is crumbly. It holds the fuel line and the fuel vent line - if your trimmer has it. Grommets on the average cost about $6.00. Not all trimmers have fuel grommets, some of them only have holes right on the fuel tank. 2.) Replace the fuel line with Tygon fuel line hose. Tygon can withstand UV light, petroleum, high and low temperatures while retaining its shape. Just make sure the replacement tube is of the the same inside diameter. For a small piece of Tygon hose, ave. cost no greater than $8.00. 3.) Replace the fuel filter. The one inside the tank, connects to the end of the fuel line. Fuel filter, good ones are about $4.00.

I re-tubed my trimmer and now the bulb won't prime


I had exactly the same problem. On my weedeater, there is a screen in the carb under the primer bulb that was dirty from the fuel line falling apart. After replacing the fuel line AND cleaning the screen, the primer bulb will move fuel and it runs great.

Weedeater fuel line oopsy


I fed the fuel line up through the bottom, attached the filter and pulled it backk towards the hole in the bottom of the tank. I then used a brake adjustment tool to first push the filter back in place (with the line attached) then hold by pressing down on the top of the filter while I hooked up the little plastic clamp.
All that seems to work fine but the weed eater won't idle AT ALL.
