Cool Fuel Line Problem

I Have An Idc 540 Supreme Weed Trimmer. I Discovered That All The Fuel Lines Had Dry Rotted And Broken Off. I Have Cleaned All The Connections Up And Replaced The Primer Bulb And Purchased New Fuel Lines As Well, But I Need Help In Knowing What Lines Hook Up Where. Since They Were All Broken Apart, I Was Not Able To Follow The Paths. I Have Two Connections From The Carb, Two From The Primer Bulb And Two To The Engine Or Fuel Tank. Any Help Will Be Most Appreciated. Thank-you.

The primer will be marked "in" and "out", the "out" goes to the tank with just a short line in the tank. The "in" comes from the carburetor fitting closest to the fuel pump end of the carb. The other carb fitting goes into the tank and has a pick-up filter on the end of such and being long enough to set at the bottom of the tank with a little slack to move around should you operate the machine upside-down. Three fuel lines, total.

I have this same trimmer, with the same problem. Where did you buy the parts?

You should be able to buy the fuel line at any small engine repair shop. Take a sample of each size you need with you to match with a new one.
