SOURCE: leafblower

check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

SOURCE: stihl bg 55 blower runs good for 5 min. then loses power

1) carburetor gaskets/diaphragms may need to be replaced

2) ignition coil may be breaking down when hot

3) check compression when cold, then after it stops, when hot

4) could have a vacuum/pressure leak

*I would investigate carb first

My stihl grass trimmer filter came off gas line in gas tank and I can not retrieve gas line.

Usa a bent coat hanger or wire to hook the fuel line out the top of the filler cap. It will stretch enough for you to push the filter back on.

Your local Stihl dealer would be the best place to get a carb, but you can save money by shopping round online. I have used L&S engineering in the past. But it depends where you are in the world. :)

Take apart stihl blower for repair

If you have the correct Stihl hose , then pull air box off and will probably have to remove the 8mm nuts that hold carb on and disconnect the fuel line and fuel return line and throttle linkage. then empty the fuel tank and pull the filter off the end of the hose and remove from the top. You will have to probably make yourself a hook out of rigid wire, hanger works good, just something to hook fuel line to pull through the cap opening so you can pull filter off old hose. then insert new Stihl hose from the top and grab it from the fuel cap hose with needle nose pliers or hemostats and pull gently not cutting the hose but enough to pull hose into tank to where groment on fuel line is in place in tank, then install NEW fuel filter and make sure your return line is good, I would replace both while I'm there, then reassemble it. if it doesn;t run right you may have to pull carb back off and dissemble it and clean it cause it may have sucked dirt through the crack

Where is the inline filter located

According to my Chilton manual RWD Oldsmobiles still had carburators in 1986. I didn't remember that. Anyway, the in-line filter will be in the carb. Disconnect the fuel line going into the front of the carb and then remove the large nut. The filter will come out with it. Pay attention to how the filter is placed in there so you get it back in right.

If, by chance you have the diesel engine then the filter is a square box thing mounted above the intake at the back of the engine. Simply remove the fuel lines and replace the filter. Hook the lines back up and check for leaks. Hope this helps.

Replaced gas tank and primer bulb on my Poulan Leafblower FL1500 and it appears I'm not getting gas into the carb. Any ideas as to what my be the cause?

I assume the new tank came with new fuel lines and filter in it.
First be sure you have all the lines hooked up correctly. There should be a main line from the tank ( has the fuel line on the end of it in the tank) to the fuel pump side of the carb. Then there should be a line leaving the metering side of the carb to the primer bulb then from the primer bulb returning to the tank. When you press the primer bulb you should see it **** the fuel into the carb then from the carb into the primer bulb then back into the tank.
If the fuel lines are all hooked up correctly then you should rebuild the carb.

Craftsman leaf blower


Check the fuel lines,fuel filter and clean the fuel tank.Disassembly the carb and clean it carefully.Diafragm type carb has a fuelpump,pay attention to it ,has to be tighten not folded.When the engine gets warm ,the fuelpump cannot keep the right proportion of fuel and the air/fuel mixture is changing.It has to be changed.
