Fuel lines. Fuel lines are made of flexible tubing that carries fuel from the tank to the carburetor and from the primer bulb to the fuel system.
Cutting line. The cutting line that is initially installed in the cutting head of the trimmer will eventually be used up. Replacement cutting line is available in various sizes. Replace the cutting line with the proper size for your grass line trimmer.
How to replace fuel lines in your Husqvarna gas line trimmer
Wear work gloves to protect your hands and disconnect the spark plug wire.
In a well-ventilated area, remove the fuel cap and empty the fuel tank into an approved storage container.
Fish the fuel filter out of the tank using a pair of needle-nosed pliers or a straightened wire clothing hanger with a hook formed on the end. Pull the fuel filter off the end of the fuel line.
Make a diagram or take a picture of how the fuel lines are configured between the tank and the carburetor. Remove the fuel lines from the carburetor using a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Pull the old fuel lines out of the tank. If necessary, use needle-nose pliers to grip the lines. If you can't pull the lines out, cut the lines flush with the tank. The use a small screwdriver to push the rest of the lines into the tank. Tip the trimmer and shake any fuel line pieces out of the tank.
Cut the ends of the new fuel lines at an angle so that they're easier to thread into the tank. Force the cut ends of the fuel lines into the proper holes of the tank, using needle-nose pliers if necessary. Push the smaller fuel supply line into the tank far enough so that the fuel filter will lay on the bottom of the tank. Fish the smaller line out of the tank and cut the end of it square. Install the fuel filter onto the end of that fuel line and drop it into the tank.
Using your diagram or digital photograph for reference, reconnect the fuel lines to the carburetor.
