Read all the following before proceeding.
The GENERIC ANSWER (not using model #s) to your question is to uncover the fuel line to gain access to each end. It seems your model likely has a top, Looks like a fuel tank that may have to be removed. It also has a “STEM”,( ITEM 41). It’s plastic and delicate.
The line (ITEM 37) will most likely have a “full circle” spring clamp on each end (ITEM 33). Standard pliers can be used to bring the ends together and loosen it. While holding the ends of the clamp together, wiggle the clamp away from its position by sliding it up on the line at least one-half inch. This will somewhat free the line to be twisted, pulled and removed.
Avoid using the pliers if there is fuel leaking. If that is the case, carefully cut the line. Pliers can slip and cause sparks and thus ignite the fuel. AVOID THIS!
In a well-ventilated space, Detach the carburetor end of the line and carefully drain any fuel into a sealable container. In the same manner, detach the fuel line from the tank end.
You may now wrap it in a cloth and take it to match up with a new fuel line. Automotive stores usually sell fuel lines in various sizes by the foot. It has to be fuel line quality not vacuum line. Allow some extra length to “cut-to-fit”. Position the clamps away from the ends on the new line. Attach to the tank end first. Flush the new line with some clean fuel. Attach the carb end, position the clamps and reassemble cover. Add clean fuel to the tank and if there is no leaks, start your engine!

Fuel line. 15 Inches of of 1/4 inch inside diameter hose.
A typical fuel system

A single fuel pipe runs from the tank, under the floor of the car to a mechanical pump on the engine. The pump delivers fuel to the carburettor. Whenever you check fuel pipes, disconnect the battery to prevent stray sparks igniting petrol or petrol vapour.

Replacing the fuel hose on your vehicle is going to take time and patience, and it could require getting underneath the car. It`s also going to take the right tools for the job.
Most vehicles have rubber fuel hoses connecting the fuel pipes on the chassis to the fuel pump or carburetor on the engine.
The fuel rail is the last distribution point in the fuel system before fuel is sent to the injector. In return-type systems, each fuel rail is connected directly to the injectors that it feeds and relies on a fuel pressure regulator to relieve excess fuel pressure.
The return line should direct fuel close to the bottom of the tank and away from the pickup.

Need to replace fuel lines on my Troy Bilt gas hedge trimmer. Where can I get replacement fuel lines… or better yet… what size are the lines and where can I buy a few feet of the lines. Note: I have reviewed the parts assembly and it would seem to indicate I have to replace the entire handle assembly (Part #1) instead of just buying replacement hose(s). Any help to resolve my issue would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance
ANSWER : Replacement fuel lines should be readily available at your local lawnmower repair shop. Your TroyBilt hedger uses fuel line that is 3/32″ (2.4mm) interior dimension, 3/16″ (4.8mm) outside dimension, with a 3/64″ (1.2mm) wall dimension.
Most manufacturers don’t offer replacement line, only fuel tank assemblies. Find your local shop, and try to get the TYGON brand…it is yellow. Tygon lasts the longest. You should be able to buy it by the foot for less than $2 per foot. You will need 2 feet of hose to replace both lines.

Make sure to clean the in-tank filter when replacing hoses.

Good luck.

Need to replace fuel lines….does the prime bulb connected to return fuel line or the supply fuel line
ANSWER : Hi stglass900…

Normally the big line will be the line the fuel filter is connected to inside of the tank, and is connected to the primer bulb.
The smaller of the two lines is the return line to the fuel tank from the carburetor after it is pumped thru the carburetor by the primer bulb.

ANSWER : Hi owjbhend…
Use a piece of wire and insert it into the fuel line, then bend a hook in the end and hook it over the end of the fuel line…lubricate the fuel line with some vaseoline very lightly…about the first one inch of the fuel line and then use your fingers to start the fuel line into the tank, once you have the fuel line in the tank give enough to hook the fuel filter to and so it can be dropped back into the tank.
