Steve Carmichael: Thanks for the helpful video!!! Just what I needed. Replaced the fuel
lines and put it back together, then it fired right up. Awesome!
Jordan Lott: Can this apply to a craftsman chainsaw?
George W: Just a note. The reason why the primer bulb would be slow to return is
because there was a blockage of the 3/16 screen under the bulb on the
inside of the carb. Cleaned it out and reassembled. Now works fine.
Jasmine Stewart: What is the part at the end of the return line inside the fuel tank
actually used for. Some say it is for joining tubes but there has to be
another use for it. Is it to stop the tube from being pulled out of the
George W: Thanks for the helpful information. I got the fuel lines correct, but the
primer bulb is so slow to return. Also noticed some fuel coming out of the
fuel cap. Any ideas?
Trog Lodyte: I saw a couple comments on getting the fuel lines through the tank bulkhead
so I'll share what I learned the hard way. I took a utility/razor knife and
cut the one end length wise on on angle so the very end is much smaller
than the hose I.D.. Once it's sufficiently through that they can be reached
with a thin designed pliers (I used a hemostat and it worked perfectly).
Pull extra through and cut the hose square and install filter or other
fittings as needed. Another thing I didn't do until it was too late that
may be a good idea is to note the length of the original hoses and
duplicate. Thanks for the video.
Txsecededave: Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to know. My fuel lines had rotted to
nothing, especially inside the tank, they were mush, so I had to replace
all the lines I had the fuel filter on the wrong line, inside the tank.
In the config I had it in, the chainsaw would run until about half tank,
then die. Now, thanks to your video, it runs and runs. Greatly
Michael Alwin: man, I was pulling my hair out trying to figure the lines out thanks for
Junior D: Do the fuel lines have to be the same size??...Thanks
jj339c: Thanks for posting. It was a life saver as all my fuel lines were rotten
and I had no idea where they went. penciled a diagram while watching your
video, replaced fuel lines and filter (bought them from Home Depot about
$6.97 for the kit with fuel lines and filter) and chainsaw is running like
a top. Thanks again.
aj glebc: Thanks for the help.
Wayne Chandler: Great Video. It saved me when my fuel line fell apart and were not
connected so that I could see the original configuration
Scott Hansen: I can't even begin to tell you how helpful your videos are. Much
Dave A: Thank you. Thank you. Thank You. I have looked at several videos for
this info and yours was the best by far. My saw is back in commission.
kirk comiskey: Great help, thanks a million.
Eric Neal: Is the configuration the same for a weedeater?
TheRoyEven: Hello donyboy you are a great man with chainsaws, but i have a quistion to
I am repairing a oleo mac 983 tta concrete saw but one thing is missing and
that is the fuel tank air breather.
Is it possible to use any sort off air breather that wil fitt on the
Greetingz from Norway
railbuggy: That's a great presentation on the fuel line routing. Too bad he doesn't
show how to fiish the stupid fuel lines through the fuel tank holes. The
engineer that chose the locations of those holes needs his butt kicked!
The suction line is impossible to get at through the fuel cap hole.
dixie griffin: very informative
railbuggy: .Well after whittling down the tubing to over a 1 inch length the size of a
toothpick I was finally able to get the small diameter fuel suction line
through the hole far enough to grab it with a pair of forceps. Now the
dang line won't stretch over the fuel filter nipple. I tried heating it
with a lighter and it still won't go on. I bought the fuel line from a
Poulan dealer so you'd think they'd know what they're doing. No wonder
people get so pissed off working on chain saws!
Roberto Silos: What about the small connector I found inside the tank, donyboy73 mon? I
assume that goes to the bigger fuel line and is the suction part of the
primer bulb. Question is how long should the line be inside da tank, mon?
Tony Blackwell: Thanks, I had two lines swapped. Now it's alive again. $3.24 and it's
Hunter Dockery: Walls
Ed Caraccioli: Very fuzzy video resolution - however I believe the information is sound -
the small hose comes through the left side hole (small) connects via a
small plastic fitting to a filter inside the fuel tank - the hose above
connects to the carb directly right - then the larger hose goes from inside
the fuel tank to the primer bulb (tank) and the smaller hose fitting on the
primer bulb - goes to the other carb fitting intake ? I have had much
difficulty getting these hoses through the holes - even with the wire pull
tool - GOOD LUCK - POULAN 2150 model - (talk about hose jobs)
David Thorne: is the fat line 3/32?
Robert Munroe: awesome! I took mine apart to clean it and replace some rotted lines.
Couldn't see where the lines were they were so bad. This is great as I did
have it plumbed incorrectly!
William Silva: I only have a 1/2 of a turn total on my fuel/air screws because of some
plastic limiters mounted on the screws. Can I remove those? My saw appears
to be starving for fuel. Only idles and immediately dies if any amount of
throttle is applied.
