1. The first step is to disconnect the
fuel line from the tank and engine.
Drain any gas that might be inside into
a glass jar or other suitable container.
Anytime you work around gasoline,
take sensible precautions, such as
working outdoors and away from
sources of ignition, such as power
tools. In order to get the gas to drain,
it’s best to disconnect the primer bulb.
There’s a check valve inside that prevents gas from flowing backward. Once
that’s out of the way, the gas should
drain easily. Check the condition of
the gas visually, making sure there are
no dark flecks or sludge that would
indicate that the fuel line is failing. If
the gas is clean, you can dump it right
back into the tank.
2. Next, mark the fuel line between the
tank and primer bulb at least 8 inches
away from the tank. Cut the hose at
this mark. Check the hose to make
sure it hasn’t delaminated like this one.
3. Slip a hose clamp on the end you
just cut. Check the orientation of the
valve. An arrow printed on the side
should point toward the engine side
of the fuel line. Insert the hose barb
carefully, slide the hose clamp up over
it, and tighten. Repeat for the other
side of the valve, then reinstall the
primer bulb, taking care to make sure
it’s correctly oriented; if you install
it the wrong way around, your engine
won’t start. If you bought a no-spray
connector for the tank, you’ll want
to screw that into the fitting on the
tank, then install the compatible end
on the fuel line.
4. Connect the fuel line to the tank,
then to the engine. Give the primer
bulb a few squeezes to get the gas
flowing, then test start the engine.
Watch your new connections carefully for leaks, and tighten them if
