Question: Fuel Lines

Winey1

Where can I get replacement fuel lines. They are small rubber hoses that squeeze thru holes in the gas tank and connect to the carb.

Hello Winey1,

If you take your Blower to a small engine repair shop in your area. They should be able to match up some fuel lines that will fit in the Fuel Tank.

Take the whole thing, tank and carb. Some require thick wall and some thin wall. You want the OD (outside dimension) a tight fit through the tank hole so it doesn't leak out but the ID (inside dimensions) small enough to fit tight on the nipple. The feed line (one with the filter) you want the yellow soft tube so the filter can move around in the tank.

There is a package of universal fuel lines for small engines and a fuel line kit for Ryobis, available in the small engine section at Home Depot. The Ryobi fuel line kit will probably fit the Homelite. I think it includes a fuel filter and installation aid. IF you go by or in HD, take a look!

Hello cking,

Because of the low cost of the Ruixing 308028007 Carburetor. I have not seen a rebuild or gasket kit for this model. Perhaps one of our forum members may have an answer for you, and will chime in.

Question: Leaky Fuel Tank

I have a fuel tank that has a crank in it around one of the bottom mounting tangs. I looked to see if I could get a replacement but it says no longer available. Do they offer a newer version of this that will fit?

Question: Gas Leak Around Cap

pjp

I have gas leaking from what appears to be around the gas cap. I do not see a gasket in the gas cap and do not see one on the parts diagram. Is there one and I somehow lost it? How to fix?

Forgot to mention, its a homelite mighty lite 26bv
WJA
Reply: Gas Leak Around Cap

WJA

Hello pjp,

The fuel cap should have a cork seal at the top of the cap. If it has deteriorated that may be cause of you problem. Also this is a vented fuel cap and it may be clogged. The part number for the new cap is 308680001.

Hello dlbuche,

If you remove the spark plug and insert a small rope into the cylinder. This will stop the fan from moving once the piston hits the rope. Then you should be able to remove the fan.

Hope this helps,

When I press the plastic choke bubble, it does not draw gasoline into the bubble. The unit will not start. What parts are needed to repair it?

Question: Primer Bulb

Ken W

I live in NM, USA, I store my blower on the garage wall and the garage gets 100 plus during the afternoon hours. My fuel line and primer bulb are disintegrating only 9 months after purchase of my Homelite 26cc UT08550a Vac/Blower.
I have replaced the fuel lines with Automotive grade fuel line, but cannot find the Primer Bulb.
Any ideas on where to purchase?
Larry
Question: Muffler

Larry

My MightyLite Backpack blower (model UT08580) starts, but has very little power and often stalls. I changed the plug, but that didn't help. The manual says to clean carbon deposits from the exhaust port and muffler. I removed the muffler, but it seems like a sealed unit. How do I clean it?

Thanks

Question: Carburator Adjustment

John

My blower appears to need an adjustment to the carburetor.
I must constantly choke the engine to keep it running even when hot. There are 2 round adjustment knobs that have one cut in it along with many indentations.
Is there a tool to adjust these knobs?
Mark
Reply: Carburator Adjustment

Mark

Hi John,

Your blower has an "EPA" carburetor. Starting in the mid 90's the EPA started mandating the emission levels on small engines. As part of this mandate the engines are tuned for emissions at the factory. The screws on the carburetor require a special screwdriver that the manufacture offers only to their repair shop network. They do this because, according to the EPA mandate, the manufacture is required to ensure that the carburetor stays within the emission specs. Therefore the manufacture only offers the adjustment tools to trained repair shops.

This said, I doubt that the problem with your blower will be cured with a carburetor adjustment. If the machine was running OK but now is not, something has changed. The carburetor will not go out of adjustment by itself. It sounds like the engine is not getting enough fuel. That would indicate that the carburetor is clogged with old fuel or dirt. I would start by cleaning the carburetor, cleaning out the fuel system (tank and hoses), and replacing the fuel filter. I think this will have you up and running again.

I hope this helps with your repair!

Question: Gas Mixture

tom surian

What the correct gas to oil mixture for 26cc engine. I replace the spark plug. The engine starts run for about 30 sec, and then quits. Very frustrating.
Mark
Reply: Gas Mixture

Hi Tom,

The correct fuel mixture is 50:1 or 2.6 oz. of 2-cycle oil to one gallon of gasoline.

It sounds to me like your trimmer may be suffering from a clogged carburetor. The carburetor can become clogged by dirt or other debris. The dirt may get by a damaged or missing air filter. It can enter through a crack in the fuel lines. Some tools use a foam air filter. Over time the filter itself will breakdown and create debris that will enter the carb and clog it. It is a good idea to replace the air filter at least once a year. If fuel is left sitting in an unused trimmer for more than a couple of months the fuel will begin to breakdown and go bad. As the fuel breaks down it will start to become gel like as well as begin to coat the internal parts of the carburetor with a varnish. The gel and varnish will plug the carburetor so that fuel can no longer flow through it. To get your trimmer running again you will need to either rebuild or replace the carburetor. When you replace the carburetor it is always a good idea to also replace the air and fuel filters. This helps ensure that more debris won't clog the new carburetor.

There is not a carburetor rebuild kit available for your trimmer. The carburetor will need to be replaced. The carburetor is part #308028007 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com.

I hope this helps with your repair!
