Take your Model number of your machine and the model, type, and code of your motor to your local small engine repair shop and have them get you your replacement filter and also pick up new gas line. When you replace your fuel lines do one at a time. All you have to do is pull a fuel line off, cut new line to length and re install. As to the filter in the tank, I usually take a coat hanger and fish it up to the top and then use needle nose pliers to grip it. Then just pull off the old filter and install new one.

good luck

Is the filter loose or is one that goes through the tank? If it is loose, just empty the tank and reach in and get it. Take the filter and both the lines to Lowes, Home Depot or a hardware store and get exact replacements. Reinstall in the reverse order that you took them out. Good luck...Lee

On a homelite model 26 bv blower Does the gas tank filter connect to anything


The filter fits on the end of the fuel pickup line inside the gas tank. If you see the filter just rolling around in the tank it probably has hardened or damaged fuel lines. Size them up and get replacement lines online or at your local outdoor equipment retailer.

Homelite leaf blower fuel tank pickup fell off


There should be something going into the tank, a plastic elbow or connector, that will connect the fuel line from the carb to the pick up in the tank. Generally what I do is remove what ever goes into the tank and get a piece of fuel line slightly bigger than the hole and insert the fuel line directly from the carb into the tank. You have to be sure the hose is really tight so to create an air tight seal. Pull the new hose out of the tank through the fuel fill and insert the new fuel filter, push the hose back in making sure it is on the bottom of the tank but has room to move around

My homelite 26b is not getting gas into the primer bulb. It's only been used a few times...help


There are a few things to look for with this problem. First, open the fuel cap and look inside the gas tank. If the tank is more than half full, dump some out to assist you in seeing inside the tank. Look at the fuel line and filter. Make sure that hose is long enough to reach the bottom of the tank when tilted on its side. Make sure that there is a filter on the end of the hose also. Then follow the hose to the carburetor and the other hose from the carburetor to the primer. If they are all intact and no cracks, then the primer may be bad or there is a leak in the carburetor. It will have to be rebuilt.

I have a Homelite "Vac Attack" leaf blower model


The fuel line is replaceable by itself, you don't need a new tank. Just make sure you get the same size line or it will leak where it goes into the tank. Any local small engine repair shop should have the line. There are two lines that go into the tank, the pickup line has the filter on it. It not only filters the gas but keeps the end of the line down in the fuel.

I have a Homelite leaf blower that will start and run for a half tank og gas. However when the tank is half empty it stalls out and will not start. If I stop it fill the tank let it sit it will start


Sounds to me as though the fuel line that supplies the carburetor has been pulled out so that it is above the fuel when tank is 1/2 empty, or there is a crack/break in the fuel line inside the tank. Not a hard job to replace the fuel line, but takes patience. If your machine has 2 lines, only take 1 off at a time to avoid confusion as to which one goes where on the carburetor.

Sounds like its starving for fuel.
Try fishing the filter out of the fuel tank with a piece of bent wire,
remove of hose and back flush with carby cleaner a few times reinstill and see if it works.

How to position the two little plastic hoses going from carburetor to fuel tank.for my homelite leaf blower and Vac, i need a caburator view


This is much easier than you think; the carburetor has two ports, one supply one return, the return port is the top port which allows excess fuel to be returned to the fuel tank when pressing the primer bulb. The bottom port is the intake that supplies fuel to the carburetor to be mixed with air and pushed into the cylinder for the combustion cycle. Both lines connect to the tank, the line with a cylindrical looking object is the supply line, that object is the fuel filter, so it would be connected to the bottom port of the carburetor. I hope that helps.

My homelite yardbroom 2 won't start. Maybe wrong gas/oil mix


Hi
If you remove the fuel you believe to be the mixture out of the fuel tank and refuel with the correct mixture then remove the air filter. Put a few drops of the correct mixture in to the intake it should start. it may take a few times of repetting putting the fuel in to the intake, but eventually it will clean out the bad fuel and run good.Remember to replace the air filter!
