The filter is part of the clunk valve which is supposed to keep your fuel supply line submerged in the deepest part of your gas supply. Haul out the filter and the end of your gas line and reunite them.

Gas is leaking after I put gas in. It looks like the fuels lines are in. Does the filter attach to the gas lines? I don't see an air filter on my 536-77240000 craftman edger.


If you just replaced the lines, alot of times the lines outerm diameter is not correct, causing leaks...other times its the gas cap itself, However, there shouldn't be any hole under a gas tank... at least not where any air filter would be close by..

Where is the gas filter


Hi,

The gas filter is inside the gas tank. If you're wanting to change the filter, first remove all gas from the tank.
Next, remove cover and probably the air filter so you can see the fuel lines.
Use a needle nose pliers to grab the filter through the tank opening.
Some chain saws have 2 lines coming from the tank. Give a little tug on the gas filter to see which line it is attached to inside.
You will have to remove the line at the other end where it attaches to the pump or crankcase.
Pull the filter and line up and out of the tank. Put on a new filter and pull the line back to the nipple it was attached to.
Push down on the filter to seat it in the opening.

Depending on the make and model of your chainsaw, some have washers under the filter that seat against the inside of the fuel tank. Be sure to press this kind to seat it.

Hope this helps. If it does. I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Need to replace all gas lines


  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.

Fuel Filter, is it in the tank? 1998 Dodge 2500


If you can get under the truck - Follow the gas line from the tank forward. The filter looks like a tin can with the line coming in one end and out the other. It is generally attached to the frame about the middle of the vehicle. There is a filter in the tank that is attached to the inlet of the pump - that filter does NOT need to be changed.

I need to replace to fuel lines on a Craftman 32cc trimmer. The old ones cracked apart. 2 of the lines look like 1/8" OD one line looks like 3/32" OD. Larger line looks like it hooks to filter, Smaller...


Depending on the brand of line you use, Tygon line is self sealing but seems to shrink faster then factory supplied because of the ethanol in the gas. The stone gas filter is designed to fall to the lowest part of the tank, not stop the line from falling out.

1990 Jeep grand Wagoneer i ran out of gas,when i put gas in in the jeep the truck try to start but start draging then just did nothing,i try to jump it and steel nothing but just a clicking sound


by running out any debris in your tank will get sucked into your fuel pump. REplacing the fuel pump usually means removing the tank. You can try replacing the fuel filter first its much easier and cheaper. The filter is attached to your fuel line between the tank and the engine, usually in the frame. TAkes about 15 minutes to replace.

32 cc Craftsman (Poulan) gas line replacement


Yes, you are right. The larger line goes to the primer bulb and only goes into the tank about an inch. The coupling just keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. The smaller line goes to the carb. This line must rest comfortably on the bottom of the tank with the filter attached to the end.

Looking for the diagram for the gas tank for poulan pro trimmer PP325 SKU:952711457. All the parts fell apert inside the gas tank


You have two lines going into the tank, a small and a large one. The large one goes just inside the tank and connects to the top outlet just under the primer bulb. The smaller line has the fuel filter attached and lays on the bottom of the tank. The other end attaches to the lower outlet on the carb. Hope that explains it for you. Dwain
