How long do all of the fuel line hoses need to be on a Craftsman Weed Eater model 358.791520?

Please clarify the length of the smaller diameter hose, the one without the fuel pickup at the end. How far does it need to protrude into the tank through the hole? What is the function of this line? Please advise.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the new trimmer. If the engine is hot, you should not need to choke or push the primmer when restarting. Just pull the rope up to three times to restart. If the engine does not start after three pulls squeeze the trigger while pulling the rope. If the trimmer does not start after squeezing the trigger, go ahead and follow the starting instructions for a cold engine. If you have already done this, I recommend checking the fuel. If it is older than five weeks old, it should be drained and filled with Fresh fuel mix. If the engine still does not start I recommend having it looked at. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:

Your machine will have 2 different sizes of fuel line used. One is: .140 OD X .080 ID and the other is 3/16 OD X 3/32. The smaller fuel line will connect the fuel filter to the carburetor. The larger fuel line will connect the carburetor to the primer bulb and then from the primer bulb back to the tank. The fuel filter is part number 530095646. Almost any similar type fuel filter will work on your model though. The carburetor for your machine is part number 545006017. If you need a rebuild kit for your existing carburetor, you'll need to take it off of the machine and locate the brand name (zama or walbro) and the carburetor model number.

This is most likely a problem with the carburetor itself. I do not show a repair kit for this carburetor so it will have to be replaced. The replacement number is 530071637 and is available

HERE

. I show it to be about $25, so that's pretty reasonable as these things can go at times.

Something to try is loosen the fuel cap and see if the problem still exists. It's possible for the fuel cap to not vent which would cause pressure to build in the tank (from any heat) and it could push past the needle and cause fuel to leak. If you loosen the cap and the problem goes away you may just need to replace the cap with number 530049386.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the trimmer. If the fuel mixture in the trimmer is older than 5 weeks old, it should be drained. Then refill with fresh fuel mix. If this does not help I suspect there is a problem with the fuel system. I recommend checking in the fuel tank first. When you look in the tank, you should see a fuel line with a white filter attached to the end. Then inspect the fuel line. If it is hard and brittle, it has to be replaced.

Here

is a video that shows how to replace the fuel line. If the fuel line is fine, I suspect the carburetor is to blame. The carburetor will have to be cleaned or replaced.

Here

is a video that show how to clean the carburetor. Before you remove the carburetor, make sure to note the fuel line and cable connections. This will save a lot of frustration later. The parts for the trimmer can be ordered from the following link.

Hello,

I would like to assist you with your line trimmer. It is important to have the model number so I may assist you better. If the unit is a two cycle, be sure to have the proper oil to fuel mixture ratio. And be sure to have new, clean fuel for either two or four cycle engines.

If it seems as though there is no compression, try taking the spark arrestor screen off of the muffler and see if it's plugged up with carbon. If it is, clean it out and then check the muffler to see if it is stopped up as well. If the muffler/screen is not stopped up then I recommend you check the compression to see if it's around 100psi. If the compression is a bit lower than 100psi then there may be a problem with the piston/rings.
