I changed my fuel line on my bolens push lawn mower and now theres no gas in the line. I tried priming it.

I would remove the fuel tank and clogged line . Then drain the gas out of the tank. You probably need to clean out the fuel tank. Use clean gas that you KNOW is clean to flush it. When you pour the old gas out of the tank, install a coffee filter inside a funnel on the can you pour it in. It will show ALL the debris inside the tank. If you are sure gas line is good , you may have an airlock (I have seen it) in the line prohibiting fuel from flowing all the way to the carb, but this usually only happens with the installation of an online fuel filterl There is a small screen INSIDE the mower's fuel tank above the outlet that may be clogged. That is why I recommend flushing it. Any gas filtered by the coffee maker should be clean enough to reuse.

Sorry to hear of your predicament. It's upsetting but not that hard to fix.

You'll have to drain the gas out of the tank first and toss it if it isn't fresh. Remove the filler cap. Take the cover off the saw and possibly the air filter if it's in the way.
Turn the saw upside down and shake the fuel filter to the opening of the gas tank (it's inside the tank) and grab it with a needle nose pliers and pull it out. If the line was that bad, you'll want to replace the fuel filter also.
You'll need to get new fuel line, which is clear tubing. You'll need about 6-8 inches of tubing.
Attach the new line to the fuel filter and feed the line into the gas tank and through the hole in the bottom. Pull it all the through to the interior of the saw. Feed the line around to the small metal tube on the carburetor. Before you connect to the carb, cut the excess line off.
If your saw has a priming bulb, connect the line to the fuel entrance on the bulb.

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

Try to replace fuel line craftman weedwacker 32cc/1.9c.u -trimmer-hose all rotten cant figure how to replace

You will need to get some TYGON fuel line. Match it up to the size of each fuel line, some of these trimmer use two different size lines, and remember which size went on which connection. You will want about a foot of each. Cut one end of each line at a 60 degree angle. With a pair of needle nose pliers, feed the angled end of the fuel line into the hole going into the tank and feed it into the tank untill you can see at the tank fill. You cut the angled end off and put your filter on the line. Pull it back until the filter lays at the bottom of the tank. Hook this line up to the supply side of carburetor. Take the other line and put it in the tank about 1" or 2"
then cut it off to fit on the carburetor. HTH
Good Day.

The fuel lines on the filter are rotten..the filter just fell out of the you have to buy a new tank to get the right filter set up??

Just take the old filter with you to about any place that sells lawn equipment (WalMart, Tractor Supply, Ace Hardware, etc) and get a replacement filter. Most of these retailers carry replacement filters for trimmers/blowers. The filter should just stick in the end of the fuel line inside the tank.. Take the old one for comparison purposes. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Primer pump rotten need replacement show parts page

The hoses run through a hole into the gas tank, they are fitted with a filter inside the tank. Drain the tank, and manipulate the hose end to where you can grab it throught he filler hole, Remove the filter, run new gas lines into the tank and through the filler hole to replace the filter, reattach to the carburator. The primer bulb should have 4 small screws attaching it to the carburator. Remove the screws, place in new primer bulb, and you should be back to trimming asap.

Cant figure out where fuel lines go on mccullogh chain saw

Fuel lines: one comes from the tank...has a filter in side the tank...runs up to the intake of the carb... you can tell by hooking up the lines to the carb, and put one into a gas supply... press the prime bulb... if it pulls gas, thats the one to hook into the tank...if not it 's the other... there should only be two lines a fuel supply and a return pressure line. Clean the air filter while you've got it apart....
