poulan 3300 fuel lines rotted off help?
« on: December 27, 2014, 07:41:09 pm »
I just  got a Poulan 3300. All the lines are gone( fuel and impulse), and I have no idea where they should go. I need a repair manual or a bunch of help from you. If you have any idea of where they go please help. My father-in-law gave me this saw because he just didn't need it. I would like to fix it just to use occasionally. I know this old saw was a beast back in the day but it needs a lot of love to bring it back.

Easy one. Most of us here have those and can take pics of where and how on fuel line.

Also check and replace the IMPULSE line.

Looking at my dads I just redone.

Looks like tank vent (pinkish)is front line and the fuel line (yellow)is the rear line.

left side fuel line attaches

right side top impulse line attaches. Also runs through tank area in front of carb area to nippile on back of cylinder crankcase area.

The only thing I might add is when you do the impulse line try and find rubber instead of the tygon.
The rubber seems to hold up better with the heat where it attaches down on the cylinder.

Yes, Tygon will not take much heat at all and it turns to butter.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

I get a lot of my fuel line from hobby shops. Seems to be cheaper than dealerships.
I saw one of these 3300s for $70. Is this one of the good old Poulans to look for?
