Question: FUEL TANK

JWW

CAN I BUY THE FUEL TANK ALREADY SET UP WITH FILTER AND FUEL LINES INSIDE TANK ?

Reply: FUEL TANK

Probably not but someone at small motor repair shop can do it for you, or do it yourself as it is an easy task, just cut the fuel line at an angle so it can be forced into tank far enough to get hold of it with needle nose pliers.

Hello JWW,

There is a fuel tank that you can use. It includes the fuel tank, fuel filter, fuel lines & fuel cap. It is part number 578942801.

Question: Smoking Shaft Tip

Within 5 minutes of start-up, the tip end of the drive shaft heats up so hot that it melts the cutting head assembly? What must I do to remedy that?
WJA
Reply: Smoking Shaft Tip

WJA

Hello Ndugu,

I am thinking that there must be a problem with the drive shaft or the drive shaft housing being worn. I would think if you replaced the 530071769 drive shaft assembly, that would take care of your problem.

-WJA
When I got the weed eater out this spring it would not start more like stay running. so checking thing out finding both fuel line are cracked at tanks.I have replaced the lines but think I may have done something wrong.
It will not run off choke. What line dose the filter go on top(closes to primer) or bottom?
The primer stays collapsed when pushed also. Also the return line how long is it to be?
Bottom tank like filter or just in tank?

Sailor
Question: Fuel Lines

Sailor

I replaced both fuel lines, but forgot which was which and how far into the fuel tank they must be. There is one line that is smaller than the other, which one is connected to the fuel filter, the smaller or bigger one? And, how far down does each go into the fuel tank? My primer bulb also has a hole in it, can I replace just the bulb or do I have to replace the whole carb?
Thanks for any feedback~

Reply: Fuel Lines

robox

The fuel filter should reach the far end of the tank and the return line should be 1/2 to 3/4 thru the tank. the bigger line is connected from the primer bulb to the fuel filter. and yes you can replace just the primer bulb part # 530057991 from ereplacements for $ 7.33. Hope this helps.

Question: Line Doesn't Spin Fast Enough To...

jessman1128

Weed eater FX26SC. Was using it the other day when something apparently broke because it no longer spins the line fast enough to cut anything. The engine starts fine, and it accelerates if I press the lever, but the line barely picks up any speed. It just goes around in a much slower circle than normal. Any ideas what the problem might be? Thanks!

I know that the screw on top of the pulley holds the rope down but how does it wind around the pulley. Does the rope feed through the hole on top or through the slot on the side of the pulley

Question: Walbro Carb Adjustment

ken52m

Where to get a vtool to adjust screws
UtahAV
Reply: Walbro Carb Adjustment

UtahAV

Hi ken52m,

The best option is to take it to a repair shop and have them adjust it.
There are a couple of reasons I say this.

First, any carb from about the last 10 years will need special tools to make any adjustments due to EPA laws. These tools are not meant for sale to the general public and the EPA has stiff fines for "tampering" with a carburetor.

Second, modern 2-cycle engines are built to very tight tolerances and use very little oil in the fuel in order to burn clean enough for the EPA requirements. This makes the engines very sensitive to being adjusted lean. Running the engine for even a few seconds set too lean can cause serious engine damage. You really need a tachometer to properly adjust modern 2-cycle engines.

I hope this helps,

is there anyway of adjusting the carburator besides the idle speed adjustment?
ShotOut
Reply: Carb Adjustment

ShotOut

There is. Either by buying the tool for it on Ebay or by making your own (use automotive type 22 gauge wire connectors). Tap the wire connectors down over the heads of the L or H screw. The plastic will expand and then you can grip them and adjust them.

Had the same problem not able to adjust the L and H screws. I took it out and cut a slots with a hack saw, so I can use a screw driver to make the adjustment.
Baldeagle
Reply: Carb Adjustment

okiejoe, try removing the L and H adjusting screws, us a hack saw to cut the grove on the head so you can use a slotted screw driver to adjust L and H screws. Try to count the counter clockwise turn when removing the screws on H and L. So it would be easier when putting the screws back. If you got a tremlin tool, you can cut the slots on the screws without taking it out. Good luck

There is a way to adjust the Air Screws. You must purchase the tool. I purchased mine from a Lawn Mower Repair Shop. The Setting For each screw is 1 1/4 turn counter clockwise.

Question: Tap N Go Spool?

I have an FX26, the line spool quality appears very thin and poor and does not advance when I tap the head to the ground.

Do I need to upgrade my spool? or am I doing something wrong?

I have a featherlite extreme. The model number is FX26S, and by the serial number, it looks like a type 2. My choke lever has snapped and I cannot tell which I need - Walbro or Zama. It is yellow, but I don't see color in either description. Which one is the correct one ?

Why does my trimmer run for 2-seconds and shut off? I cleaned the air filter, cleaned the carburetor, and inspected the fuel lines.
Mike
Question: Weedeater

Mike

My weedeater stops running and has no acceleration when I flip it to RUN. I start my weedeater in full choke and it runs but in slow idle. Then I wait about 10 seconds, I flip it to half choke, my problem begins. It starts accelerating then cuts off immediately. Same thing when I flip it to RUN.

Hi Mike,

It sounds like you engine is not getting enough fuel. The carburetor is likely plugged.

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 engine 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 engine 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 a carburetor rebuild kit available. It is part #545081808 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com .

I hope this helps with your repair!

Question: Weedeater Type

Jose

I don't know how to tell what type of FX26S I have. I checked the data plate and the model number and don't see a type. Also the parts diagram doesn't show a difference between type 1 and type 2. So I guess my question is how do I determine which type I have?

Reply: Weedeater Type

You need to find the serial number which is located on transparent material. If there is a -1 at the end of serial number you have type 1. If you find a -2 you have a type 2.
There was a label with a white background and an SKU number with barcode. That won't give you what you are looking for.
LEE BILLECK
Question: FUEL LINE

LEE BILLECK

IS THERE AN EASY WAY TO REPLACE THE FUEL LINES AT THE FUEL
TANK?
Mark
Reply: FUEL LINE

Mark

Hi Lee,

I would start by first removing the fuel tank from the engine. It will make working on it much easier. Take note of the length and mounting locations of the old fuel lines. Remove the old fuel lines. Be careful to not damage or enlarge any of the openings in the tank. Clean the tank out with some carburetor cleaner to ensure there is no debris in it. Now insert the feed line into the tank. Bend a short length of thin wire into a hook shape. Insert the hook into the fill spout and fish the line out through the opening. You can now press the fuel filter onto the feed line. Drop the filter and line back into the tank. Insert the vent line into the other hole on the tank. Now reinstall the lines to the carburetor and remount the fuel tank. You should now be ready to trim again!

The feed line is part #530069247, the vent line is part #530069216 and the fuel filter is part #530095646. All of these parts are available from http://ereplacementparts.com

I hope this helps with your repair!

cut the end of the line you are going to put in the tank at an angle and then dip them in 2 cycle oil first this makes getting them in the hole much eazier
