No gas coming thru


Take the saw and open the gas tank. There should be two lines going into the tank, one for the primer bulb and the other (with a line-end filter) feeds the engine while running. Make sure that the line-end filter is submerged in the gas in the tank. If the saw still won't start or run, you probably have a diaphragm in the carburetor that is torn (from letting the saw sit for a long period of time). You may need to rebuild the carburetor. A carburetor rebuild kit can be bought for very little $$ at a lawnmower repair shop.

While using Craftsman blower it was running low on gas. I turned it off and when i opened the gas cap, it appeared to be highly pressurized. I filled the tank and when I pushed the primer bulb to restart...

Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old. Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage. May need to clean or replace carburetor, fuel lines, and fuel filter.

How do I reconnect the plastic gas line inside the gas reservoir that has split and come off the connector nipple?

best to just run a complete new line from the carberator into the tank. can get new line from most lawn mower shops. now, the trick here is to take the end of the line going into the tank, and cut it on a steep angle, otherwise, you'll never get it into the tank. by cutting angle on the end, it will go thru the tank where you can get ahold of it with needle nose pliers and pull it on thru. its really not a bad job, just takes a little time to do. good luck

I need to know how the fuel lines are hooked up in my ryobi gas trimmer. All of the fuel lines rotted out. I took them out and I need to know the correct connection sequences (what goes where).

line runs from little filter in tank to carb.
line from carb. to primer bulb
line from primre bulb back to gas tank.
lines are 2 sizes
need to cut at angle end of lines in tank so you can get them thru holes
and grab with needle nose plyers and pull them thru.
make sure you put the little filter on end before you pull line thru and leave
enough so filter can move around the whole tank.
second line in tank is smaller and need to cut and pull it thru hole in tank to primer bulb

Disconnected intake hose from gas tank to primer bulb

is gas line broke or disconnected? Either way it has to be reinstalled.First, get new gas line, and be sure to get it longer then you need, because, you will need to cut a sharp angle on one end then install this end into gas tank, then reach thru gas cap opening with needle nose pliers, get ahold of fuel line and pull thru. if you do not cut angle on new fuel line, you will never get the line into gas tank.

What is the fuel line size for Troy Bilt TB525CS Trimmer?

Yes, something special to know. If the new fuel line is going into the gas tank, be sure to cut a steep angle on the end of the line going into the gas tank. This will allow enough of the line to get into the tank where you will be able to grab it thru the gas fill opening with needle nose pliers and pull it thru.

How to get gas lines in tank

You can go to Home Depot and for about $7 U.S. dollars, they sell a replacement filter, primer bulb and install wire. It is really cool. You put the install wire thru the hole in the tank where the lines come out of the tank. There is a small hook on the end. This hook fits thru a small hole in the new fuel line end which is cut on an angle. Basically this allows you to fish the new line into the tank thru the gas fill port up thru the small holes in the tank. Then just plug the tubes on the carb. Easy Pizzi !!!

Fuel input line with filter in the gas tank on four stroke trimmer is broken. If you feed the new line in how to you attach the filter inside the small tank. Cannot see any way to fish the line out thru...

It can be frustrating at times but not as hard as it looks. Cut the line on an angle and feed it into the hole in the tank ( should be a VERY snug fit or it will leak). Using a set of long hemostats reach in and pull the end of the line through the filler cap. Cut the line sraight and attatch the fuel filter and insert it into the tank. Then pull the fuel line back out of the tank till you have the proper amount in tank and filter lays nicely on the bottom. Then cut fuel line to length for proper fit to carb.

Gas line needs to go thru buttom of gas tank on sears weed wacker

Take your old line to a lawn mower parts store, ask for a new gas line of the same size. I would buy about a foot long. Push the line in the tank down into the tank(doing this with the tank empty), remove gas cap, turn upside down, a filter and your old line will fall out. Press the new gas line through the hole, push enough through that it comes out of the filler hole, place filter onto the new line, drop into tank, cut off excess and reattach to the carburator.
