346xp leaking fuel
« on: April 13, 2018, 10:03:18 PM »
previous owner says the saw always leaked gas. fuel lines looked tired so I started by replacing them. found the tank vent had backed out of where its seated in the tank. rattling around in there it had oversized the hole. so I put that in with some sealant and figured it was good. wrong! still leaking gas like a sieve.
the main feed line from the filter to the carb isn't making a seal where it passes into the tank.
is there supposed to be a seal there or is it just the outside of the fuel line pressing against the orifice? does OEM husqy line have a different outside diameter than the generic stuff I got at tsc? any thoughts on how to seal this up?
thanks in advance.

Hi I have fixed several huskys that leaked where the fuel line comes out of the tank and yes there are several sizes of generic fuel hose. The way I fixed them was putting a stihl weedeater gromet in the hole then run the fuel line through that,it seals them tight. I had a 350 that I fixed that way.I drilled the hole just big enough to get the gromit in run the hose through it no more leak.

that sounds much easier than trying to sleeve it with a larger piece of fuel line.

many thanks!
