graphicHello,if fuel line is broken it is rotted and needs to be replaced,it will just keep falling apart.Part number for fuel line is <530069247> and can be purchased online at or a Poulan/Weedeater dealer.Cut new fuel line at a 45 degree angle for about 2 inches and push thru top of tank and grab with hemo's or needlenose pliers thru gas cap opening.Reinstall fuel filter and connect hose to nipple on right side of carburetor,cut as needed.You may have to loosen or remove carburetor so take a good look at how fuel line and everything connects.There may be dirt in carb also and if removed take cover with screw in center of and check screen to see if clogged.graphic
