  1. Empty the fuel tank on the chainsaw of any remaining fuel. Pull the cap from the tank and turn the unit upside down. Drain the fuel into an approved fuel container. If the fuel is old (more than about a year) dispose of it according to local regulations for hazardous materials. (It can be kept longer by adding a fuel stabilizer.)
  2. Pull the fuel line where it attaches to the carburetor using the end of the needle-nose pliers. The old fuel line may take some force to pull free from the metal tube.
  3. Push on the fuel line to feed it into the fuel tank. Hold the chain saw upside down. Shake the unit to get the fuel filter into the opening of the tank. Pull the filter free of the tank. Feed the remaining fuel line through the access hole at the bottom of the tank. Dispose of the filter and old fuel line in accordance with disposal regulations.
  4. Feed one end of the new fuel line into and through the bottom access hole of the fuel tank. Push approximately 6 to 8 inches into the tank. You can pull back any excess line later. Grab the end of the plastic line with the needle-nose pliers. Bring the line through the gas tank fill opening.
  5. Attach the new filter to the end of the new fuel line. Feed the filter back into the fuel tank. Pull any excess line from the tank. You will want approximately 3 to 4 inches of fuel line inside the tank.
  6. Route the new fuel line to the carburetor. Cut the line to length with the cutters on the needle-nose pliers. Attach the line to the metal tube.
  7. Fill the fuel tank with fresh gas-oil fuel for 2-stroke engines and start the chainsaw. It may take a few pulls to prime the new line with fuel.
  8. Some models come with a priming bulb. Make sure you press the priming bulb three to four times before trying to start. This will prime the gas lines and remove any excess air trapped in the lines.

25cc Gas Line Trimmer- both gas lines have disolved and the fuel filter is just rolling around inside the tank. I have replacement fuel line. Do I need to replace the fuel filter?


It is never a bad idea to do so. If the unit has some years on it, I would say yes. Inspect it, and if it is still nice and white, keep it. If it isn't, I would replace it.

Need to know where the termostat goes in the waterheter?


The thermostat probe on most residential water heaters is part of the gas valve. The thermostat is a non replaceable part of the gas vale and if your t-stat is bad you will need to replace the gas valve also.
This is generally not a very hard job just start off by shutting gas supply valve to off position.Disconnect main gas line to burner,line to pilot light, and thermocouple from gas valve. Remove pipe fitting from gas valve and use large pipe wrench to loosen gas valve.
Before you loosen gas valve you will need to shut water supply off and drain water from tank.MOST WATER HEATER GAS VALVES ARE PRETTY STANDARD ITEMS AVAILABLE AT MOST HARDWARE STORES. Just make sure you purchase valve for the type of fuel you have,such as l.p. or natural gas.Remove gas valve by turning counterclockwise. Use teflon tape or pipe joint compound on all threaded connections for reassembly. Hook up gas line,burner supply line,pilot and thermocouple lines. Refill tank and check and check for leaks. Light pilot and turn gas control to on. Set to desired heat setting . Also check all gas fitting for leaks. Good luck. Thanks

I have a 25cc gas trimmer. It leaks a little gas from the clear, flexible gas supply line(s). Is it possible (practical ?) to repair a leak in the gas line(s) ? Can the lines be replaced...


They get replaced all the time. The "new" gas with ethanol tends to deteriorate them more quickly nowadays. Small engine repair shop has the fuel lines you need. Repairing them is not done.
If you have the Craftsman trimmer, just ask for about a foot or two of each of the 2 different size lines. They are called "Tygon" fuel lines. Runs about a dollar/foot for the stuff.

Some one played a bad joke on me they put antifrezee in my gas tank and what to do to get out


Take to a garage and you will soon find out that "bad joke" is the wrong name for this. All gas must be removed and gas tank dropped and cleaned. you can only hope that that will fix it. Fuel pump, line and injectors may also need attention.

How to replace a fuel line


No biggy, you need to buy the same size fuel line tubing, preferably from the dealer, and replace it by undoing the tubing fasteners, little clips you undo with a pair of pliers. Before doing this, make sure you cut off the fuel line valve which should be right under the gas tank, if none, empty the gas tank in a seperate container. Good luck.
