If anyone has wanted to try LP1100 and give knowledgable input to the rest, I would send a length out to the first couple of posters/PMrs. ( 3/32 ID, 3/16 OD 3/64 Wall thickness) Length of line?  Mailing info.?
 

I got a wild thing 2375 and a 2150 needing new fuel lines.
Was going to use my 4040 but wondering if this LP1100 might be close enough to try out?

Measurements read the same on paper.  It may pull through the fuel tank hole a little harder for me.  Slight size difference or materiel has diff. friction on hole, not sure. 

I went ahead and pulled hard on it, stretching the fuel line quite a bit during installation.  Possibly caused a problem for myself by ‘delaminating’ the tubing.  I will watch this and keep you posted.  Next installation I will grease the outside and have it slide into hole more agreeably.

Tell me your two lengths and where to send it.

LP 1100 (if I remember correctly) is a slightly different color than 4040 A.  It is a little on the green side. 

Fuel line is winging its way to you as of today Kevin.  Thanks for your kind offer to pay for line and postage, both here and in PM.  I appreciate your contribution to saw info and inviting me to this forum, couldn’t possibly accept anything.

Sent line out to another participant today too so everyone should have some informed thoughts coming at some point.

Thanks Merle!  I'll be putting that line on two different saw models (Poulan S25-CVA and a Poulan 3400), and will then put 4040A lines into a Poulan S25DA and a PoulanPro 375. I run non-ethanol fuel, but will leave fuel in the tanks of these saws to see how the lines fare when submerged for extended periods.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

You’re welcome Aaron.  Where do you get non-ethanol fuel and can anyone get it?
The closest that I know of to me is in Redding, about 7 hours there and back.

Typically boating marinas have it.

I will PM you the info (or just tell you on the phone).  Gonna hit the rack now.  Long work night.

My source is about 45 minutes from me...........and probably a bit over an hour from you.  If you'd like I'll bring back some for you.  Good clean safe non-eth gas, and not too expensive.  Not breaking any regulations as we're not using it on the road in pollution controlled motor vehicles.........but I'm still hesitant to post details in an open forum.  Don't want the source to dry up...

There are closer sources, but they're very expensive (VP SEF94 and TrueFuel).  Was looking into the marina option, but from what I'd gathered that may be a dead end in our area.  I used to get 100LL from airfields.................but that's been severely hampered over the last few years.  California......
