SOURCE: How do I install fuel lines on a poulan chain saw

The smaller line comes from the fuel filter in the tank to the nipple on the side of the carb with the cover w/ 1large screw in the center, the other small line goes from the other nipple on the carb to the primer bulb, the larger line goes from the other nipple on the primer bulb back to the tank, and only gets pushed in about 1/2-3/4" into the tank. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: weed eater featherlite primer bulb won't fill with

Hello

From your Description and Depending on the OEM (Zama or Walbro) of the Carburetor it Sounds like a Bad Fuel Filter or the Primer Check Valve has Stuck and the Carburetor Requires Soaking and Cleaning.
>>You can View a Breakdown/IPL of the Mower at this Site Addy, http://www.poulanpro.com/poulanpro/indexAction.do?id=default and Select Order Parts and Accessories. On this Page Select Illustrated Parts List from the Menu on the Left. Now Select the Manufacturer (Poulan/Weed Eater) and Enter the Model Numbers in the Boxes at the Lower Left of the Page.
I Require the OEM (Walbro, Zama, ect) and the Model Numbers Off the Carburetor. With these I can Locate a Breakdown of the Carburetor and Better Assist you.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Mccullugh MCC1840 18" chainsaw. Gas pouring out bottom of saw. How do I get to the gas tank?


The fuel tank is part of the rear handle support body.
The fuel line to the carburetor goes into the top of the tank.
You will also find a return line from the air purge primer bulb. More than likely, one of these lines has broken or cracked. Gain access to some of the lines be removing the recoil assembly.
1) Remove the Air Filter and Filter Cover
(which you have already done)
2) Remove the recoil assembly to gain access to the primer lines.

Have 2 gas lines dangling in gas tank, mcculloch 42c, 36cc, older, one line has filer other for primer????? or did it come disconnected


Hi perfecthelme...
Those are broken fuel lines your are seeing and a fuel filter inside of the tank
*******************************************************************************************
I will include a fuel routing drawing.
Before you remove any fuel lines, make a drawing or take a picture of how the lines are connected to the tank for later reference.
You will need to remove all the old fuel lines and fuel filter out of the gas tank.
Clean and remove all trash,broken pieces of fuel line,etc. from the fuel tank.
After you have all the fuel lines and filter removed.
You need a piece of wire...smaller diameter than the inside of the fuel line, insert the wire into the fuel line until it exits the fuel line then bend a hook on the end of the wire to hook over the fuel line.
You will lubricate about 1 inch of fuel line with a small amount of vasoline or light machine oil...
Now using your fingers or small needle nose pliers collapse the fuel line around the wire hook and insert it into the hole in the fuel tank.
After you have the fuel line in the tank, extend enough fuel line into the tank to exit the fill spout of the tank and remove the wire from the fuel line.
You will insert the new or cleaned fuel filter into the line and pull the fuel line to pull the filter just back into the tank.
Please take time to rate me

Both my Echo line trimmer and Stihl hand held blower. No fuel in the bulb on both, I suspect bad fuel. If so, how do I fix?


Check INSIDE the fuel tank. It is possible the fuel line inside the tank has deteriorated and the filter broke off. That would cause fuel line to FLOAT in the tank instead of lie on the bottom. This could easily be the cause of no fuel in primer/purge bulb. You probably need to:

Install new fuel filter..........Install new fuel Lines.......Install new primer bulb........Clean carburetor.

So in some respects, you are probably correct....no fuel filter equals bad fuel entering carb (but if none in bulb, doubtful much fuel (dried up maybe ) in carb.

I just want the primer tubes or plastic because they are falling apart and leaking gas


I suggest cleaning out the fuel tank I also recommend installing a NEW fuel filter, New fuel lines and a new primer bulb. This will take care of the fuel system for awhile. All of these parts are available on Ebay, by many online vendors or at small engine repair shops everywhere. Take the old lines with you so you get the correct size and get at least 1 foot of each size you need. You will need the extra length to be able to pull the main fuel line thru the tank to install the NEW fuel filter you get. Even if you use your old filter (not recommended) you will need extra length to reinstall it.

All of the fuel lines have broken due to age and now I do not have a good idea how to replace with new lines


In general, a fuel line runs from the fuel filter in the tank (check the filter for plugging) up to the carburetor inlet port (usually upper-most). The lower carburetor port goes to the inlet of the primer pump. Leave the other primer port open for the moment. With fresh fuel mix in the tank, try to pump fuel into the primer bulb--if nothing happens, move the line to the open port and see if it will pump. If neither one works, the filter is plugged, the carburetor is internally plugged, or the primer bulb is cracked or has a hole in it. Be sure to use original type fuel lines--not plastic. Once you have the primer bulb filling with fuel, install a fuel return line from the open primer port back into the tank through another hole. The engine should be ready to start at this point. Hope this helps!

Poulan P3400 Chainsaw Fuel Line Routing


If the saw has a primer bulb, then you require one line from it's output out to the tank return. Another line runs from the carburetor outlet to the primer inlet. Make sure that you use original rubber lines, not plastic replacements. The primer ports are found by trial and error--hook the filtered line directly to one primer port and leave the other port open. If the bulb is in good condition, and correctly connected to fuel, the bulb should fill with fuel after several pumps. If nothing, reverse the port connection at the primer--and pump test again. One of these two connections should allow pumping to occur. When you get pumping, install the tank return line to the empty primer port. Remove the filtered line from the primer and install on the carburetor. A new piece of line runs from the now empty primer port and connects to the output port on the carburetor. If the carburetor lines are correct, you should be able to pump fuel through the carburetor body and out to the primer bulb. If nothing happens, you may need to swap the carburetor lines, and you will likely need to service the carburetor. Hope this helps!

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, the output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill the bulb as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs will help with reassembly. HTH

I have a roybi 31cc weed eater and the fule line has become brittle and has broken apart. I need to know the layout of the new plastic fule line. I purchased a new fule line at Lowe's. I do not know wich...


STEP (1) The fuel supply line has the filter attached inside the fuel tank. The other end of that line goes on the carburetor's SUPPLY NIPPLE.

STEP (2) Determine the primer bulb's flow direction by pumping it under water. The unused nipple on the carb (IF STEP 1 WAS DONE CORRECTLY THERE IS ONE UNUSED NIPPLE STILL AVAILABLE ON THE CARB) will have a section of fuel line attached to it and running to the SUCTION NIPPLE (or pull-side, as some techs call it) of the primer bulb.

STEP(3) The final piece of fuel line goes from the OUTPUT NIPPLE (or push-side, as some techs call it) of the primer bulb and is routed back into the fuel tank as a return.

If plumbed properly, the primer should PULL fuel thru the carb and NOT pump any fuel into the engine. Excess fuel should be pumped back into the tank on each and every press of the primer.

Hope this helps!

Poulan Trimmer PPB100 fuel lines


The larger of the fuel lines is the main fuel line. It is the one that has the filter stuck in the end of it and runs out the larger hole in the tank to a fitting on the carb. The smaller line should be about one inch into the tank and comes out the smaller hole and runs to one of the nipples on the primer bulb. Press the primer bulb and put your finger in front of the fittings. The one that you feel air coming out of when you do this is the fitting that runs from the primer bulb to the carb. Hope this helps and good luck.

no you can buy replacement fuel line but you must reconnect the filter in the tank that line goes to the bottom of the carby then out the top of the carby to the inlet on the primer then out of the primer and back to the tank.
