Thanks for checking. I'm guessing the smaller line will come from the filter in the tank to the carb with the bigger line from the carb to the primer bulb and the smaller line from the primer bulb back to the tank. The other thing is how to route the lines so when the covers go back on the fuel lines don't get pinched. Thanks again for checking.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance not working.

I am sorry; we do not have written instructions for the routing of the fuel lines on your product. Our technicians are thought the basic routing because the routing cannot change much from year to year.

If you have one large fuel line and one smaller this eliminates some chance for error. If you have 2 small fuel lines to the carburetor connect them and start the engine. Reversing the fuel lines will not prevent the engine from starting. If you have them connected backwards, the engine will start and die. Reverse them and you will be correct.

 

The routing of the fuel lines vary from model to model. Keep in mind that the primer bulb circulates fuel from the tank, through the carburetor, and back into the fuel tank. One line goes from the fuel tank to the carburetor. One line goes from the fuel tank to the primer bulb, from the primer bulb to the carburetor, and back to the fuel tank. The small line in the fuel tank should have the filter attached to it. I have added a sketch below of how the fuel should flow in the circuit.

Here is a video link that may be helpful to you.

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

You can click the link below it will direct you to a video that will help give you a reference for this procedure. You will most likely need to remove the shrouds to access the tank and fuel lines on your blower.

In the video the guy is doing the fuel lines on a trimmer, but once you get the shrouds off of the engine on your blower it's going to be basically be the same scenario. The fuel lines run the same way on a blower or trimmer (and usually a chainsaw too).

I have attached a drawing of how the fuel lines are to be connected on your blower (pretty much any blower for that matter).

From what I can tell, the lines actually pass through the tank wall on this model. You can insert the line through the little hole from outside the tank and then use needle nose pliers to grab it and pull it on through via where the fuel goes in. If you have trouble pushing the hose through the little hole (and really, you should) slice the end of the new hose for about 3 inches so it will pass through the hole, then cut that sliced piece off once you have it pulled through so you can connect the filter.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

I know it can be difficult to determine which line goes to which port. I found a great video that shows how to determine the correct configuration of the fuel lines. Click on the link below to watch the video.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Mark
