Re: Need help reconnecting fuel lines
One fuel line (the on with the filter in the end of it) comes out of the fuel tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The other hose comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb. A third section of fuel line goes from the top fitting on the primer bulb to the top fitting on the carburator. Hope this helped and best wishes.

There are several you tube videos here on replacing fuel lines: (do not delete)
Something to note... inside the tank there is a fuel filter/strainer. Make sure to replace that fuel line also. The connection from the strainer will connect straight to the carb fuel mainfold connection. The center connection of the primer bulb will go straight to the carb fuel manifold.

You will need to go to the lawnmower/weedeater parts house with a sample of both lines to be able to replace the lines with the right size fuel lines.
Also check/clean/replace the fuel filter inside of the tank.
Also take your Mfg. and model number with you.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing to how the lines are connected to the carburetor. Normally the big line will be the line the fuel filter is connected to inside of the tank.
The smaller of the two lines is the return to the fuel tank from the carburetor after it is pumped thru and primed the carburetor by the primer bulb.
You will insert the big line into the fuel tank far enough to be able to install the fuel filter.

Ok.. We need your help here. I understand your going to replace a fuel line. Depending on what make and model your doing the fuel line replacement on the procedures are different. Some connect to the tank outlet. Some connect to the fuel tank screen pick up others connect to a fuel shut off valve. They all end at the carburetor.
If you do a like part replacement the only thing you have to be concerned with is that it does not leak after you install the new line. What is most important is that you make sure to clamp both connecting ends of the new line. Fuel lines rapidly get hard and will leak causing the possibility of a fire during use / personal injury. I have repaired numerous BURNED units that early in the mowing season the owner had replaced the fuel line and by July or August it caught fire because they did not install the clamps or the right clamp when they replaced the fuel line. It isn't a difficult task.
Thanks for using FixYa.
(If you need more details I need a make and Model number to be of any further assistance to you.)
Is it getting fire to the plug, and is it a good blue flame. is the flame arcing between the electrode only. if not your plug could be fuel fouled. if it is fuel fouled toss it and get a new one. the wood ref key on the fly wheel may be bent . if it is bent it will throw it out of time. hope this helps
I am not really sure how many lines you replaced. But the fuel line layout on most types of trimmers, weed wackers and lawn mowers are pretty straight forward. There is usually a line inside the gas tank for connecting the fuel strainer\filter. Then a line from the bottom of the tank to the carburetor. This line may also have a fuel filter located on it. On more complicated equipment you may find a breather line that loops back to the carburetor. Below are a couple of links that might be helpful. The first three are diagrams of a similar 31cc Snapper trimmer and links to other Snapper trimmers. The fourth is to the users manual for your trimmer. Hope this helps.
no you can buy replacement fuel line but you must reconnect the filter in the tank that line goes to the bottom of the carby then out the top of the carby to the inlet on the primer then out of the primer and back to the tank.
A short fuel line leading from the primer bulb should be placed just inside the tank. This line may be larger than the other fuel line depending on your trimmer, so make sure that you have the correct sizes. The small plastic piece goes at the end of the fuel line to prevent it from pulling out of the tank. It also serves as a overflow. Cut this line a little longer than you need it until you get it in the correct position. (Hint: You may want to taper the end of the lines before putting them in the holes, it makes it much easier to feed them into the hole, then square them up after they are in.) The other line goes to the bottom of your tank with a small filter at the end.
1st thing is to take the remaining gas out of the edger and wash out the tank with fresh new gasoline. it is most likely the problem is in the old fuel. it will in as little as 3 weeks start to varnish or seperate into less combustible properties and will smell a little sour or vinegar.since it was running at the end of last season i would replace the spark plug and refill with fresh gasoline. i would also add a additive seafoam acording to the bottles recommendation which is 1 0z per gallom\n of gasoline. it won't hurt to add this to what ever gasoling can you are using because this is recommended for all gasolineengines. give it a try and it should get you up and running. happy edging!
