  1. THANK YOU very much…. Im off to get some fuel line and im giving this a nudge 😀 I just went to trim the edges and found the filter playing at the bottom of the fuel tank LoL…..

  2. my fuel line was broke so i changed it in now it want start up.When i push the primer bulb it blows instead of sucking????? not sure what to do

  3. Does anyone know if the feed and prime lines need to be the same diameter?  I used a thinner diameter line for the prime line, because one of the holes in the tank was smaller than the other.

  4. Replacing the plastic fuel line is something all owners of gas-powered tools should learn as they don't last long at all,especially if stored in unheated sheds/garages during the winter. (They used to be made of black rubber & lasted forever, which is probably why they switched to cheap plastic.) Replacement 2-cycle plastic fuel line's a 1-size -fits-all & is available at Home Depot, Lowe's & most hardware stores for about $5. For a complete kit incl. new fuel filter it's around $8. I save a lot of the fuss shown on the vid by measuring the length on the outside of the tank with either a flexible tape measure or piece of string, rather than fuss with pulling out & putting back the new fuel line.

    I don't replace the air filter – it's washable & any decent brand of detergent & warm water cleans it up just fine. After washing, rinse in clear water. Squeeze out excess water then blot it on old T-shirts (best) or paper towels. DON'T use it until it's dry- or mostly so.  I've also found cutting a piece of [paper] coffee filter & putting it over the mesh air filter keeps fine particles out of the engine but still lets plenty of air through. The air filter on my Weed Eater's the original…and it's 7 yrs old.

    I do like his use of WD-40 – it's a bit more slippery than a touch of 2-cycle oil.& won't harm the engine. I also cut the end on an angle to make getting it started MUCH easier. I trim it even when I'm ready to attach the fuel filter. Fair warning to those thinking of enlarging the entry port instead of wiggling, pinching & squeezing and/or using assorted 4-letter words to force the line through: DON'T. You need that tight fit & it's really easy to enlarge the hose feed port too much – leading to bigger problems.
