Please help:PP 260 Fuel tank troubles.
« on: April 23, 2014, 06:46:45 pm »
I just bought a good used pp 260. The person I got it from drilled out the holes  for bigger fuel where the fuel lines goes in the tank now it leaks when tilted on it side or when fueling.So I was wondering what can I use to close up the holes with that the fuel will not eat up over time.I want to redrill the holes in the tank so it seals. I want to use a epoxy if I can. I have gorilla epoxy but I don't know if it is fuel proof or not plus is say's on the back no polyethylene or polyethethylene plastics. So what should I do. I found a used tank on ebay but I am not going to pay 45 used tank :o. That is more then what I have in the saw it self and I do not want too take it down over someone drilling out the holes for bigger OD fuel line. Please help..


Thanks
Jason

Tygon tubing comes in all kinds of different sizes.   I would just get some larger tygon and then if you need to reduce it get some small brass tubing from a hobby shop.   In fact you can buy brass tubing where one piece will slide into the other and just solder the joint and you have a reducer to any size you want.   Not a lot of expense and the tygon tubing will seal the hole like it is suppose to.

Have you ever replaced fuel line on a saw before?     I only ask because there are a few tricks that make it easy if you have not.   
PP 505, 475, 445.

I have replaced fuel line before on other saws I have had. The fuel Line that is in it now is tygon 3/32 x 3/16. I would like another case, but don't want to really take it down over a simple fix.But if I have no other way I will go that way .The saw runs so nice just the darn holes are to big in the tank. I need to use it very soon. I got it for my son for his frist saw. I have 8 tree that have fallin over the winter becouse of all the 50+ mph winds this last winter.

 I would just redneck fix it one way or another myself and get cutting. 

If you cant redneck fix it for some reason. Dont buy one for crazy $$.  I looked yesterday and I have a 260 crankcase and rear handle that is very very dirty on the shelf. 

I mean dirty too and I aint cleaning it so beware of all the grime.

If it has 3/16 x 3/32 you can try 1/4 inch by 1/8 and maybe that would seal it.  Otherwise, here is a part number for an echo grommet that should fix you up.  Echo 13211501461.

I hope you can redneck fix it.

But just come across a old pic from 2011 of the 260 case I have on shelf. Look for the dirtiest grimy one.  ;D
