SOURCE: BX 90 homelite leaf blower two idle screws

The initial setting is 1 1/2 turns out. Screw them all the way in and them turn them 1 1/2 turns out. This is the starting position and should start, it may need some final adjustments to run like you need it to run.
Remember more the screw is out the more fuel it will get.
Good Day.

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.

Gas tank

Homelites are great, especially the old aluminum gas tank kind like the C-55. If it leaks through the gasket you can take it apart and trace out a new paper gasket on a piece of cerial box. Make sure to wash the gas filter bob in gas and blow it out to get the film of fine sawdust off it or it will lock up with vacuume from the engine while cranking. If it cracks you can use 2 part epoxy putty stick which is made just for gas tank repairs.

Homelite won't start

You may consider installing a new spark plug. 2-cycle engines foul plugs pretty regular. I'm guessing you are using old gasoline??

The trimmer I have is a sx-135 bandit. which fuel line pulls fuel from the tank

The longest of the two lines is the one that pulls the fuel from the tank. It should also have a fuel filter attached to the end of it which lays at the bottom of the tank.
The other line goes form the primer bulb on the carb. to just inside the tank ( about 1/2 in to 1 inch).

How do you replace the fuel filter on a homelite st 145? the hose snapped and the filter fell into the fuel tank. Thanks

Take the old piece of fuel line and have the vendor match the size. Buy 1 ft. so that you have a little extra to work with. Cut fuel line at an angle. This will allow for easier insertion into the hole in the gas tank. Feed the line through until you can pull it out of the opening where the gas cap is. Cut the line off square. Attach the fuel filter. Pull the line back through until it rests comfortably on the bottom of the tank. Assemble the trimmer. You will then get a more accurate measurement to the carburetor.
