Old Primer Bulb was cracked and would not pump fuel into the carb
- Removed top cover (to access carb area and allow side panel removal)

- Removed side cover where primer bulb is located

- Remove old snap in primer bulb (without disconnecting fuel lines)

- Cut and replace the 2 fuel lines one at a time (mine were hard and brittle from old fuel)

- The new bulb has 2 fuel ports, one is longer than the other which matched the old bulb.

- Installation instructions said to double check the direction of the fuel flow (the bulb sucks fuel through the carb, so the inlet side is connected to the carb and the outlet side goes back to the fuel tank).

- Snap the new bulb into place on the side panel

- Attach the side panel

- Attach the top panel

old cap would not screw on/off easily and finally started leaking after failed attempts to tighten
Remove from package and insert the plastic lanyard into the tank. Screw in place. New cap was a lot easier to tighten and sealed perfectly.

Saw would run and then stop. Would not allow air into the tank, but loosening the cap and it would run again for a short time
There is a vent in the fuel cap assembly that was plugged after being exposed to the fuel mixture. The new cap assembly allowed are to flow into the tank as gas mixture was drawn out. Replacement of the cap is easy and self explanatory.

The fuel line had deteriorated and had to be replaced
Remove the cover on the chainsaw to access the fuel line area.
Remove the air filter to access the area.
Cleaned out the tank since there were pieces of fuel line floating around in the tank.
Had to fish the fuel line through the opening at the top of the tank and use long nose, bent tip needle nose pliers to pull it through. Had to cut the fuel line at an angle to make it go through the small opening in the tank.
After pulling the fuel line through the tank and inserting the fuel filter I had to pull the fuel line back in and then cut it to length and insert the other end into the fuel line tube outside the tank.
Install the covers back and the chain saw was operational after pulling the fuel line through the tank and inserting the fuel filter I had to pull the fuel line back in and then cut it to length and insert the other end into the fuel line tube outside the tank.
Installed all the covers back and the chain saw was operational.

    Check For The Fuel Cap Hole!!!
    I had purchased a "maintenance kit" which included the fuel cap for my chainsaw from an online auction site. After performing the maintenance I could not keep the chainsaw running for long as it kept stalling out. I looked to a video site for help and found info regarding the fuel cap. The fuel cap from the maintenance kit didn't have the vent hole in the top of the cap, luckily I still had the old fuel cap and put that back on the chainsaw. The saw started and ran without stalling at all I purchased a new replacement fuel cap from ereplacement parts and the new fuel cap came with the proper vent hole. I install it on my chainsaw and it runs without stalling

    Great Part
    Arrived quick and fit great.
    Guest - April 22, 2020 Verified Purchase
    Right part, great price
    Really just needed the gasket but for the price it was worth just getting the whole fuel cap. Arrived timely so back in business!
    Guest - April 15, 2020 Verified Purchase
    Just what I needed. Delivered right to the door.
    Fits correctly and doesn't leak.
