FL20 Fuel Line Problem

FL20 Fuel Line Problem

From: Scott

I recieved a used FL 20 from a neighbor. why is there a large and a fuel small fuel line? Do I need a fuel filter on both lines? And do I need to have both lines extended to the bottom of the fuel tank? Thankyou

Hello Scott,

The small fuel line is the suction line and it needs to have a filter on it. Put the small line throught the hole and into the tank such that the filter lies flat on the bottom of the tank. The other end of the small fuel line connects to the fuel pump side of the carburetor.

The large line is the return line and this does not need a filter. Push this line about an inch into the fuel tank. The other end of this line connects to the fitting on the primer side of the carburetor.
