Weedeater Featherlite 18cc EM

Weedeater Featherlite 18cc EM

From: Bernie

I have searched all over the machine but nothing lists a model #. However, it is a 18cc EM, 2002 US EPA

PH2, Ser.# 02137N501816-4 (13.52).

My featherlite starts but doesn’t run but for a few seconds. I change the choke level but the same thing happens. I noticed gas on the outside of the tank and that the small gas line next to the large one has been displaced from the hole where it slides into the plastic gas tank. It seems this may be the issue as to some type of vacuum lock due to this issue. Can you please help as this trimmer always worked

wonderfully until now?

Thank You So Much for your time and consideration!

Hello Bernie,

Information on the 18cc-EM featherlite is difficult to find as you have no doubt found out yourself. All weedeaters have two fuel lines (small and large. I have attached a link for the replacement small line for a similar model (FL26) which may fit your model. I would try this before giving up or throwing your featherlight away!

Please also find an exploded parts list for the FL26 and diagram on our website at:
