Question and Answers

Q:

fuel lines 358-794942

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the blower. I will be happy to assist you with connecting the fuel lines. The small fuel line is the supply line. If you remove the fuel cap, it is the long line with the filter attached. This line should be connected to the port furthest from the base of the primer bulb. The larger line is the return line. It just goes into the tank a little bit. This line connects to the port closest to the base of the primer bulb. When the fuel lines are connected correctly, you will see fuel come through the small line to the carburetor. Then from the carburetor back to the tank in the large line when you push the primer.  

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

fuel lines/gas tank 358-794942

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the blower. I have looked up the model number you have submitted. If I remember correctly, you have to remove the carburetor and maybe the muffler to separate the halves. I believe there are also screws in the handle mounts that have to be removed. Once those are removed, take out all the screws holding the two halves together. I this there is one by the inlet door. You have to open the door to see. I wish I could have been better help it has been a few years sense I have seen this blower.

Please feel free to reply below with more details and I will try to assist you.

Q:

My blower/vac runs only with the choke almost closed. If I open the choke, it stalls.

A:

Did you always run the engine on the blower until it burned all the fuel from the carburetor before storing it?

It sounds like the carburetor has some stopped up fuel or air passages inside it. When you have to keep the choke on to keep the engine running, it is because the carburetor is not drawing the fuel properly from the fuel tank.

I recommend rebuilding or replacing the carburetor.
