There are several trick to doing this. I'm not sure I can explain exactly how...so you can understand it...I just do it.
First of all, it is done at the factory with special tools.
They actually put half of it together at a time.
When we replace the fuel lines, we make sure that we have about 2 feet of line to work with. You don't try to put it in the same way it was at the factory.
The first thing that you do is make sure that you have the "CORECT" size line...this line must fit VERY snug through the hole in the tank as it has to seal against the tank so it doesn't leak.
Now, first take the 2 foot piece of line and split the line right down the middle and then slice off that half of the line leaving 1 1/2 foot of complete line with a 6" tail that is split wide open.
Take the end that is split and poke it into the small hole in the tank. Get a pair of forceps or needle nose pliers and reach through the gas cap hole and grab a hold of that line. Pull the line out of the cap hole until the entire split part is outside. Cut the split part off and install the fuel filter. Now grab other end of the line and pull on it until the filter is laying in the bottom of the tank. Measure how much of the remaining line is needed to reach the carburetor and cut off the extra. Then install the end of the line on the carb.
Now , that's not too hard is it? lol
The biggest mistake people make is that they don't buy a long enough piece of fuel line...or the don't get the right size of line.
