Hello,Look inside tank at the fuel filter,it is flush against bottom of tank.To remove it you have to seperate or cut line about 2 inches and then remove the little washer/ring that is on fuel filter nipple sticking out of tank and save.Push filter inside and remove thru gas cap opening.To install new fuel line on filter,cut a piece of trimmer cutting line about 14 inches long and insert from outside of tank and pull thru gas cap.Attach fuel line with filter onto string and pull out bottom of tank,nipple must pull thru and if needed push filter down with a screwdriver to get flush with inside of tank.Reinstall ring on nipple outside of tank.For the return line coming from primer cut a piece of fuel line on a 45 degree angle and push into tank.The fuel line I use can be purchased online from and is the same as original fuel line.Part number is <530069216> and costs approx $4.25

the primer has two nipples,a long one and a short one.The long nipple is the return line to the gas tank,the short nipple line goes to the carbnipple near the two adjustment screws.The main fuel line with fuel filter goes to the bottom carb nipple.
