How To ... Poulan Chainsaw - Replace Fuel Lines




What do you think about this video?

Gary Ronan: Consider yourself lucky. Minnesota is going to A 15% alcohol blend in there gas which will destroy all small engines in A very short time. I live close to the Wisconsin border so I will go and get my gas there. I may decide to move there!

Roly Fisher: LOL, same problem on my 3300. The line to the fuel tank is the easy one. The one from the carb to the crank is...a little harder! I actually did it with very long needle nose pliers and surgical forceps, like arthroscopic surgery. Re-used the old spring type hose clamps. I hate buying at my local parts dealer, they treat me like crap every time I go in, even when I go in with part numbers. It's like I'm taking milk out of their baby's mouth.

Jamie C: I'm about to have to do this on my newly acquired "used" Poulan Pro blower. Thanks for the walk through.

Bob Breisch: Appreciate your video. My fuel line looked just like yours, - bits and pieces of crunchy plastic! Thanks for giving me confidence to do this myself. Repair quotes were higher than new chainsaw prices!

railbuggy: The lousy engineers at Poulan located the fuel line holes in my 2150 where you can't get at them through the fuel cap hole. I'd like to punch the dummy in the nose that designed it!

Daniel Miller: if line line will not go into the fuel tank hole drill it a little larger , then seal it with seal all or locktite

Cowbell Hero: Using that damn Ethanol gasoline DESTROYS fuel lines!We can thank the liberal tree huggers for that!

BaronvonBrawn Wright: The Key is always in the right tools... Long Hemostats allow for you to find the line and access the through hole.

Rusty Johnston: I have the first Poulan I ever bought. It still runs like a BEAST! A little TLC is required for all equipment. I even got an old 2075 that my mom gave me when my stepdad passed. I use it more than my brand new 4218. Fuel lines issues are a by product of Ethanol being used as a substitute for REAL gasoline. I have a $20k outboard engine that I have had to change all the fuel lines more than once. Does that make my outboard junk? Not hardly. F'n EPA is what you should be b!tching about.

name is none sorry: i cannot get the fuel filter line back into that small hole help!

HC Deer Hunter: First mistake is that you bought a Poulan...

Troy Brownrigg: Poulan chain saws seem to be junk! Fuel lines rot off within a year. I started a new one up today it died withing three hours of constant use! I need a real chain saw that lasts!

tatertot360: Been trying to find the dam fuel line that goes to the head for months, thanks for the video I finally found it I had replaced the tank line & filter no I can do the other line. BTW mines a 3100 Thanks this information was great and hard to find!

minthillbilly: They make several different size hoses. Check by your local hardware store or lawncare service center

minthillbilly: Thanks for your input friend! Have a great day!

MrBubblegumballs: engineering marvel, ain't it? I mean is there NOT some better way to squirt fuel around than a hose that shall crack way quicker than the life of the tool. Lumber folks ain't no Einsteins though I guess. I have a poulan and a McCulloch that both need this done, probly the throttle boots too. thanks for the look inside!

Yamaha SR650: @tatertot360 Most, if not all small engine shops stock bulk fuel line in various sizes. If the line requires a built-in tank grommet and your saw is old, it may not be possible to locate one. Out west we have a catalog called "Oregon" that has a few pages of hard to locate grommeted fuel lines. Oregon serves the Pacific Northwest.

garrethbert: Why do they make such poor fuel lines in chain saws? Had the same problem this morning.

minthillbilly: Thank you for the nice comment! I'm glad the video helped some. Take care and have a great day!

Whitney Dodson: I cracked my unit open because I needed to replace the primer bulb - same problem happened with the broken fuel line. I replaced the fuel lines but for some reason (and I can't see why), the saw is leaking fuel. I'm not sure why. Any suggestions about where to go next?

Randy Eubank: my hose woint go in the tank

Larry McCraw: Mint Hill NC near Charlotte?

minthillbilly: Your welcome! Thanks for the comment and I hope the video was helpful.

minthillbilly: I asked a guy that worked on small engines for a living that same question. His reply was that todays fuels have so much alcohol in them that they slowly destroy the fuel lines. Some fuels today can have as much as 10% alcohol. Have a great day!

minthillbilly: I agree my friend but I've been told by a guy that works at a small engine shop that its todays fuels that cause our rubber hoses to rot away. The alcohol in our fuel causes the problems. Take care and thanks for the comment!
