Push the line into the tank and then reach in through the fuel cap opening with some needle nose pliers and grab the line then pull a good amount through and into the tank. The line that has the filter should be long tough to where it can reach every point in the tank. The other line (the return/vent) can just come to inside the tank and stop.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Thanks for sending the model number of the hedge trimmer.

Be sure the gas/oil mixture is correct and is no more than 5 weeks old.

Set the choke on full and the throttle is locked on and pull the starter rope 8-10 times. Remove the spark plug and see if the tip of the plug is damp with gas.

You are getting spark from the spark plug if the engine tries to run on carb cleaner.

Remove the muffler and inspect the screen. Try to start the engine without the muffler. If the muffler is stopped up the engine won't pull gas through the carburetor.

If none of these things help, look for possible air leaks in the fuel system. Be sure the gasket on the carburetor is in place and the mounting screws are tight. Check the new fuel line connections. If air leaks into the fuel line or around the carburetor, the engine won't pull the fuel in.

You can also try a new spark plug. The spark might be weak.

If you have more questions, reply on this thread and we will be glad to help.

I have installed a new gas line that you can see the gas in it and it is full to the carb. All the carb gaskets seem good and tight. Took the muffler off and checked the screen that was clear.

Q:

How do I convert part number 530069682 to fit for model 358.795620? They sent this part in place of 530-035306. Do you have any instructions?

A:

According to the manufacturer of the hedge trimmer, the original carburetor for the model number you sent has 2 fuel lines attached to it.

We don't have instructions for installing the carburetor. Part number 530069682 should be an exact replacement for part number 530-03506.

Please verify the model number of the hedge trimmer and if you have more questions, send another email and we will try to help.
