Craftsman Weedwacker 358.795543 - Fuel filter to line re-assembly.

Fuel line broke in tank. There's three pieces in the tank (see attached pic). Was wondering how to put it back together. Thanks for you time.

Thank you for your question.

I have looked at the picture you have submitted. The white piece is the filter. It attaches to the end of the fuel line inside of the tank. Use a coat hanger wire with a hook on the end to fish out the fuel line. Once it is out of the tank, reattach the fuel filter to the end of the fuel line. The other two parts are for the fuel cap. The green part is the vent for the fuel tank. It fits inside of the cap and is held in place bay the other part. I have posted an image of how the fuel cap should look. I have found a video that has the instructions for replacing the fuel lines if you find the lines in the tank break easily. Please click here to watch the

.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair of the trimmer.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:

Celene, thanks for the link. The line in the tank is in great shape, the filter broke off from the end of the line. Sounds like the other two pieces aren't needed?

That's great to hear that you are wanting to fix the weedwacker, its always a good thing to ask before you do a job that you are not familiar in doing. Luckily i was able to find a link where an expert provided great information on replacing the fuel line. I wish this is enough for you to change the lines.
