Resolved Question:

Good evening, I have a Craftsman 4 stroke Gas Trimmer, Model 977, Type 05991, code(NNN) NNN-NNNN with a Briggs & Stratton engine, I just purchased from Sears a fuel tank assembly Briggns & Statton P/N 696919. Please advise me the procedures for getting the fuel line hoses into the tank, they came separate and are to large to go into the holes on top of the plastic tank. Do you have directions as to the way to proceed.

Cut them at an angle, and press them in. If you have access to a pair of bent needle nose pliers use those through the gas tank. These can and will be stubborn, but you need to be able to grab them from inside the tank and pull them through, they are press fit so that they will not leak
