Question and Answers

Q:

gas line replacement sears gas leaf blower

A:

First, drain all the fuel into a fuel safe container and not into glass container. In order to access the fuel lines the carburetor cover, carburetor, and the left hand and right hand housing will need to taken off. Remove the two (2) carburetor cover screws and the (2) carburetor mounting screws. Remove the fuel lines from the carburetor and primer bulb. Remove the 10 screws fastening the two housings together. One you have the left and right side housings removed you should have no problem replacing the fuel lines. Two (2) fuel lines will connect between the carburetor and gas tank. One likely will press fit through for the fuel pickup line with filter inside the gas tank. NOTE: Take note of which is the fuel supply line and which is the primer fuel line.

The compression should be no less than about 95PSI. I have seen them run with less compression, but it's rare.

The parts listing is a little bit confusing on this. The carburetor assembly is part number 530071775. The other listing for "carburetor" is actually a carburetor rebuild kit. In many cases, I recommend that rebuild kit but in this case, I have to recommend a replacement carburetor because it's only a few dollars more for a whole carburetor.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

I have this blower and installed your replacement carb.I don't know the exact date,maybe 2 years ago.I have the same problem were the priming bulb has a hard time sucking gas from tank.By removing the bulb and the rubber check valve I apply vacuum to the small hole,then I can draw gas thru carb. I think either the rubber check valve or the priming bulb have a attitude.I don't use the blower often and having replaced the carb not long ago, I think the parts in carb don't hold up.It look like parts are not available when another cab is only another $25.00 + shipping!!!!!!!!
