    For model number PP4218AVX
    Hello Robert, Thank you for the question. The Larger line only goes into the tank 1 1/2 or so inches. Hope this helps!

    Where should the filter sit in tank? Or how long should the filter line in tank be?
    For model number PP4218AVX
    Hello James, Thank you for the question. The filter should be just touching the bottom of the tank. We hope this helps!

      Both the Fuel line and the Engine fuel line, where dry rotted.
      1) While still attached to the fuel tank, I first sized up the old fuel lines with the newer fuel lines.
      2) With a pair of needle nose players, I then removed the old dry rotted fuel ?? lines, from the fuel tank.
      3) I cleaned the fuel tank and around the carburetor area, to insure that there was no debris, that could possibly fall into the path of the new fuel lines installation.
      4) I then installed the smaller one of the fuel lines, so that it would be out of the way, of the larger fuel line. I Pulled the fuel line through the smaller hole in the fuel tank, with needle nose players. I pulled the smaller fuel line out through the fuel tank filler hole, attached the fuel filter to the smaller fuel line. I Made sure that the fuel filter was extended to the furthest end of the fuel tank bottom. Six inches in all. I then attached the smaller fuel line to the carburetor.
      5) I Installed the larger fuel line, followed the same procedures as the smaller fuel line.
      6) Both fuel lines where cut on an angle for easy installation. No lubricant was necessary.
      7) I filled up the fuel tank with fresh fuel and oil, new air filter and spark plug. It started on the first pull. Amazing.

      Replace the fuel lines
      Replaced all fuel lines. Followed instructions found on Partselect.com, which said to insert cut fuel line in tank and use forceps to reach back in the tank and pull the fuel line through. The problem was that I did not have forceps, or needle nosed pliers that could reach the end of the hose.

      Instead of running the line into the tank, I found another suggestion online to run the line from inside the tank outward, allowing me to grab the line with any pliers and thread it. The way I did this was used about a foot length of 14 gauge copper wire. Put an inch or two into the hose (that has been cut on an angle), and use a little black tape to secure the hose on the wire. Now you should be able to route the stiff wire from inside the tank to the fuel hole in the tank. Fish the wire through, and it should be enough to get the tapered end through the tank. Pull the copper wire, mine came out, but there was enough of the hose exposed on the outside of the tank for me to grab with pliers and pull it through.
