Does both gas lines in the Ryobi bp42 have to be immersed in the gas tank? or does the one without the filter remain above of the gas?

This is just the return to tank pipe, it does not need to be in the fuel, just in the tank far enough not to leak out the top.

SOURCE: GAS LINE PROBLEM

Hi this is the way it should go: 1 from the filter in the tank to the bottom of the carby,2 from the top of the carby to the inlet on the primer,3 from the outlet on the primer back to the tank as this is the return line nothing goes onto it.

Did you replace the gasket (item 15 on the linked document) when replacing tank and lines, if you didn't and the old one has been torn it could be sucking in air, also the 4 carb mount screws need to be of equal tightness

SOURCE: where do I connect the fuel lines on my ryobi weedeater?

I have Ryobi775r string trimmer with walbro WT526 carb. The fuel lines connect 3 parts eg. gas tank, bulb (mine is a separate bulb not part of carb.) and the carb. The bulb has 2 fittings- a short and a long one. The carb also has 2 fittings- one on top (vertcle) and one on the bottom (L shape). The gas tank has two holes in the bottom one for over flow line and the other for fuel inlet to the carb. This has a filter in the gas tank. Now the connections- connect the long fitting on bulb to the tank. this is the overflow. Connect the short fittin on bulb to the carb top (verticle) fitting. Connect the fuel line (with filter - it is in the tank) streight to the L fitting on the bottom of the carb. Make sure the fuel lines are of right diameter. Too big-and you will have leaks. You are done connecting the fuel lines. just for info. the bulb is there just to pull a vavcume in carb so that the fuel is sucked into the carb and is present there when you start the engine. Hope it helps. Good luck.

SOURCE: How do you get the fuel line connected to the fuel

You must run the fuel line through the back of the tank and out the filler hole,make your connections,i used a small amount of vaseline to make the connections.Then pull the filter into place,make sure some of the nipple of the filter pokes through,then slide the retainer ring on the hose and force it onto the filter nipple.

My Ryobi BP42 wouldn't start, I noticed that the fuel hose detached from the carb, I re-seated it and it worked great. The next time I used it, it starts no problem, but idles 1 sec then stalls.


hi
the fuel filler cap it has a small hole ( about 1 diameter )
if this hole gets blocked it creates vacuum within the fuel tank stopping fuel flowing into the system

Ryobi BP42 leaf blower will start but will not rev up when I push the trigger - how can I fix this?


Its a lean condition, not getting enough fuel. Check fuel filter and fuel lines. be sure you have fresh fuel. and the carb needs to be adjusted or rebuilt.

My Homelite d3300 DX series runs great for a while then quits some say its a stopped up but it looks clean some say air filter it is clean do you have any solutions I mixed gas ratio 40:1


Hal:

Check the fuel filter at the end of the fuel line in the tank... sometimes it will get hung up in the tank and won't be immersed in the gas. also check to see if there is enough fuel line in the tank to ensure that the fuel filter stays immersed in the fuel in the tank.

I have a ryobi #790r the gas lines were bad , in replacing them I find an extra hole in the gas tank I can't figure out what came out of it, I found nothing that would indicate something was missing ...


The best way to state my solution is to give you the instructions I made for just replacing the bad fuel lines on a 2-stroke trimmer. Your Ryobi should fit this bill.
The small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects directly to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then "pushes" any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Again, on the primer bulb, the longer nipple has a line going directly from it to the tank. This is the return line. The shorter nipple on the bub has a line from it going to the metering chamber side of the carb. If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where sometimes the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. Otherwise, the line should enter the tank for about 1/2" or so.

I need the fuel/oil mixture for Ryobi 31cc 775r gas weedeater. Also the diaphram for the fuel line replacement.


The fuel/oil mixture is 40:1. That is 3.2 oz. oil/US gallon. Now for the fuel lines:

I have a Ryobi 700r trimmer - I needs a diagram of all the fuel line hookups

I need to know how the fuel lines are hooked up in my ryobi gas trimmer. All of the fuel lines rotted out. I took them out and I need to know the correct connection sequences (what goes where).


line runs from little filter in tank to carb.
line from carb. to primer bulb
line from primre bulb back to gas tank.
lines are 2 sizes
need to cut at angle end of lines in tank so you can get them thru holes
and grab with needle nose plyers and pull them thru.
make sure you put the little filter on end before you pull line thru and leave
enough so filter can move around the whole tank.
second line in tank is smaller and need to cut and pull it thru hole in tank to primer bulb
