Craftsman 18' chain saw fuel line

Posted by jefflucado (My Page) on

I had a carburator problem that I fixed and in the process decided to replace the fuel line. My problem is getting the fuel line back into the fuel tank as the opening is very tight. I've tried pushing it through with a wire but didn't get it in very far and poked holes in the line. Do I have to take something else apart to access the fuel tank and pull them through some way?

Thanks for the help!!!

search at for a similar model. Sometimes they include a PDF of the manual in the specifications section. That might have a blow-up that shows how the tank attaches.

just a thought.
