Ok...follow these instructions closely and you will know.
The small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects directly 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. Again, on the primer bulb, the longer nipple has a line going directly from it to the tank. This is the return line. The shorter nipple on the bub has a line from it going to the metering chamber side of the carb. 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 sometimes the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. Otherwise, the line should enter the tank for about 1/2" or so.

Fuel lines rotted...need to know how they connect to gas tank/primer/and carb


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. Please vote on this solution.

Hi, I tried to start my ryobi scrub hornet and found that all the fuel lines have disintegrated and likewise the primer bulb. So I bought those parts and tried installing the fuel lines. Not knowing how...


The primer bulb is attached to the carburetor by a flange with 2 screws...the "center" port goes inside the carb. The upper port on the carburetor is a return line to the gas tank. The lower port is where the supply line is connected - this line goes into the tank and has a filter attached to the end.

I hope this helps you. Please let me know if it does or doesn't.

I had to replace the primer bulb on my saw , when I started I found the hoses were all dry rotted and crumbled , I know one hose goes from the bulb to the carborator, the other hose goes from the gas tank...


One line from the tank (that has a filter on the end in the tank) is the main supply to the carburetor. The other line in the tank has no filter and is the outlet side of the primer pump. There is also a line between the carburetor and the primer inlet side. The primer is supposed to **** fuel from the tank, through the carburetor and back to the tank. The main supply line is usually a little bigger than the primer pump lines. The tank should be vented through a separate screened hole or a vented tank cap.

Fuel line connection


Fuel filter to bottom of carb. The suction port of primer to the top of carb outlet line to other port to tank.
To tell which port is outlet put your finger on one port and push bulb if the bulb collapses and doesn't return then that is the inlet (suction) side.
Good luck

I had to replace the primer bulb and fuel tubing. The primer bulb just disappeared, presumably blew off. I have installed the new bulb and replaced the fuel tubing, but I need to know where the tubes...


The line with the fuel filter in the end comes out of the tank and it goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The other line comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb, and the third section goes from the top fitting on primer bulb to top fitting on carburator. Got it? lol Hope this helped and best wishes.

Fuel lines


The main fuel line goes to the bottom of the tank. The other, sometimes larger line goes to the primer bulb. This line goes just inside the tank, not more than 1"(inch).
