Hi,

No the fuel tank is part of the case. The fuel line needs to be pushed through the holes. The supply line goes through the big hole on the left. And the return line goes through the small hole on the right hand side.

It is tricky getting the lines through these holes, It helps to use a small pick or punch to push with, then I use a hemostat to reach inside and pull the lines in. Use bulk line and dont cut it until you are happy with the length. The supply line ( the one with the filter) should extend outside the fuel opening. The return line just need to enter the tank about an inch or two.

Hope this helps

Clogged fuel line


John, you can just replace the line or try replacing the fuel filter, while the line is apart at the filter blow on the hose going to the fuel tank to see if the clog is on that side. Use compressed air to blow the clog back into the fuel tank then clean the tank out by siphoning the fuel out or remove the tank and flush it out. If the clog is after the filter remove the hose and blow it out (I would replace it) and remove the bowl from the carburetor and see if there is trash in it. You may need to clean the carb.

Replaced primer bulb and all fuel lines still getting air in lines. ran pretty good for about 10 minutes now will start with choke but dies in a few seconds. Cannot rev. up. cleaned under both plates but...


The primer bulb pulls fuel from bottom of fuel tank,when bulb is full it will return fuel back into tank,the hose entering bulb runs in the tank to bottom with filter on the end,the return hose stops just as it enters the tank maybe 3/4",make sure the hoses entering tank are tight fit or they will pull air in and leak.the carb may also need rebuild/clean,there is a screen inside of carb that may be stopped up which will need to be replaced.(carb kit).

Trying to take apart to replace fuel hose.taken screws out and lid offvaccum.but will not come apart why.jerry


Sometimes, its easy to miss a "hidden" screw. The plastic case probably has plastic guides for it they may even interlock together. Search again for a "hidden" screw before giving up. You will find more than just one fuel line. Here is how you would replace them if you choose to do so (recommended).
This is an ongoing issue for users, and rightfully so. Small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then pushes any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Years ago on 2-stroke trimmers, primers were not even used,...you choked the carb with a slide lever and gravity let fuel enter the carb from above...a few pulls, a "pop"...slide it off of choke and away you went.
If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

I am replacing the fuel tank assy and purge bulb (i.e. primer) on my Sears Craftsman model 358.798940. The original plastic tubing was old and brittle and broke apart while disassembling, so I could not...


The order of fuel travel should be:
Fuel filter to fuel hose to Carb's Fuel Supply nipple. (On the main body of the carb)
Primer Plate Nipple on carb to fuel hose to Suction Nipple on Primer Bulb. (It must pull fuel thru the carb, not push)
Pressure Nipple on Primer Bulb to fuel hose to Fuel Tank Return hose.

When correctly installed, the fuel will be PRESSED into the fuel tank via the return hose when primer is pressed in . . . and SUCTIONED out of the tank and into the Carburetor when primer in released.

Hope this helps,
Dolf-

On weedeater blower and vac gas line is broke from carb into tank does it just connect to fuel filter in tank model 1925


Yes if your asking about the fuel line yes it hooks to the filter out thru the wall of the gas tank straight into the carb. if it broke out side the tank you can try a smaller plastic hose to stick inside to reconnect the two parts. if it broke inside the tank try to replace as one hose.

Fuel Line Leak, Need Advice


the metal line is part of the fuel pump. if the line is that fragile it should just be replaced. what if it broke and left you stranded somewhere. the fuel tank might look rusty but it's probably just surface rust.

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.

Leaking Fuel tap (petcock)


This sounds like a vacuum lock pet ****. 3 position? run, prime,and reserve? If you have it on pri, You will fuel running or not. If set on run, then you will only pass fuel when engine is running, and of course res. when tank is used up. Is this leak at the valve? or from the tank or internally flowing? Tis should also be a gravity feed fuel system, please correct me if I'm wrong. good luck. Long fuel lines are not prefered on gravity feed systems.

Broken line after fuel pump replacement


All the fuel lines in the modern fuel pump in tank vehicles need the 2-3 lines hooked up, so it would be a good idea to do so. Rick
