Fuel Line Replacement On A Small Engine

by Jeremy HIPA 12 Dec 2022 0 Comments


This blog is a step-by-step instruction for replacing the fuel line on a Briggs and Stratton engine. The most common reasons for replacing the fuel line is if the engine is leaking fuel.

Replacement

Before you begin the replacement, you need to make sure the engine has cooled and the fuel tank is empty.
Step 1: Use a 5/16 inch nut driver to unthread the two screws securing the throttle cover plate. Shift the throttle lever to the right so you can detach the plate.
Step 2: Use a 10 millimeter socket to unthread the two front screws securing the fuel tank to the bracket. Use a 10 millimeter wrench to unthread the two rear screws securing the tank. Use pliers to release the spring clamps securing the fuel line and pull the line off of the tank port.
Step 3: Now release the clamp to detach the old fuel line from the carburetor to prepare the new fuel line for installation.
Step 4: Slide the provided spring clamps over each end. Attach one end of the new fuel line to the carburetor port and secure it with the clamp. Attach the other end to the fuel tank port and secure the clamp.
Step 5: Position the tank on the bracket then reattach the rear and front screws. Reposition the throttle cover plate and rethread the screws.
Refill the fuel tank and the engine should be ready for use.
