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!
HC Deer Hunter: First mistake is that you bought a Poulan...
name is none sorry: i cannot get the fuel filter line back into that small hole help!
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!
David Fruhling: @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
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
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.
