Weedeater Featherlite SST Universal Gas Line Repair Kit

Weedeater Featherlite SST

From: Lou R.

The (2)gas lines running from the tank to the engine have rotted off. I purchased a universal gas line repair kit with 2 lines: a 1/16″ I.D. x 1/8″ O.D., and a 3/32″ I.D. x 3/16″ O.D. The holes on the gas tank are of different sizes. I can’t seem to get the smaller of the two into the smaller hole on the tank. If these lines are the correct size do you have any tips for getting them into the tank holes. Also, I want to change the cutting head. How do I lock the bottom (to keep it from rotating) so I can install the new one? Can I talk to you by phone? Many thanks, Lou.

Hi Lou,
similar question was answered above: It must be slightly smaller or otherwise the fuel would leak out of the tank. Here’s one method from an expert to prevent it: I use a label tag wire (about 10″ long), stick it through the hole and out the fuel cap hole. Snip the fuel line at an angle on the end, punch a hole in it then stick the wire through the line and twist it. Now you can pull the line through the hole. Sorry, we don’t have phone support.
