fuel filter
WArNINg
Gasoline and its vapors are extremely flammable and explosive. Fire
or explosion can cause severe burns or death.
Keep gasoline away from sparks, open flames, pilot lights, heat,
and other ignition sources.
Check fuel lines, tank, cap, and fittings frequently for cracks or
leaks. Replace if necessary.
Before replacing the fuel filter, drain the fuel tank as per the
instructions below.
Do not drain fuel when the engine is hot. Allow the engine
adequate time to cool. Drain fuel into an approved container
outdoors, away from open flame.
Drain any large volume of fuel from the tank by disconnecting the
fuel line from the in-line fuel filter near the engine.
Remove the fuel line from the ln-line side (side towards the fuel
tank) of the fuel filter.
Replacement parts must be the same and installed in the same
position as the original parts.
If fuel spills, wait until it evaporates before starting engine.
Before replacing the fuel filter, drain the fuel tank. Otherwise, fuel
can leak out and cause a fire or explosion.
To Drain the fuel:
1.
Locate the fuel filter, which is routed on the left side of the engine
between the fuel tank and the carburetor, and may be attached to
the engine with a tie strap. Cut the tie strap, if present, then pinch
the in-line clamp on the fuel filter with a pair of pliers, slide the
clamp up the fuel line. Pull the fuel line free from the filter and place
the open end of the line into an approved container to drain the fuel.
To change the fuel filter:
1.
Use pliers to squeeze the tabs on the other clamp (the out-line
side of the fuel filter), then slide the clamp away from the fuel filter.
Twist and pull the fuel line off of the fuel filter. See Figure 11.
2.
Check the fuel lines for cracks or leaks. Replace if necessary.
3.
Replace the fuel filter with an original equipment replacement
filter. Call 1-800-4-MY-HOME® to purchase the original equip-
ment replacement filter.
4.
Secure the fuel lines with the clamps.
