How to Replace the Gas Lines on Craftsman 200 MPH Special Edition Blower

Craftsman’s gas-powered leaf blowers, like most power yard tools, utilize two-cycle engines. The 200 MPH Unique Model blower uses the same method of fuel lines and engine parts that most other Craftsman versions use. Replacing the gas lines is much simpler than you can believe and only requires a few basic household tools.

Drain all the gasoline mixture from the gas tank into a gas can. Unplug the spark plug boot and wires. Unscrew the air filter cover and then remove it along with the air filter. Unscrew the choke cover under the air filter.

Pull the gas lines in the carburetor and lift them from in the gas cylinder. The old fuel filter will likely come out on the end of the smaller line. Discard the old lines. Unscrew the gas tank mounting screws and pull the cylinder from inside the machine.

Cut the ends of the new fuel lines on an angle to make them simple to feed the holes in the gas tank. Push the slimmer line via its hole, then use needle-nose pliers to pull it halfway through. Cut the end straight and attach the new fuel filter. Push the bigger line via its hole in the cylinder and pull halfway, again with the pliers. Cut the end inside the cylinder straight and attach the gas line cap.

Insert the gas tank back in the blower and rebound it. Feed the gas lines around the carburetor and cut them to the ideal length. Connect the thicker line to the upper connector on the carburetor close to the primer bulb and the narrower line to the router.

Reattach the choke cover, air filter and air filter cover. Plug in the spark plug and wire. Refill the gas cylinder.
