Ryobi 780 Trimmer Fuel Tank

Posted by wild-bill none (My Page) on

A relative gave me a ryobi 780 series trimmer, which has not been used for 5yrs. I was able to start it, but the lines and primer bulb were dried out. I replaced the fuel lines and primer bulb, but in the process, the second line going to the gas tank attaches to a small plastic piece, which also was dried out and broke in two. Unfortunately, I don't see where I can buy that particular piece without buying a whole new gas tank. Basically, what use is it, and can I rig something up to replace it without buying a new gas tank

I have no problems with or modifying If It's SAFE! You could have a better method. Please add a link or Picture to the needed part. I feel it will be a grommet that I have seen used in other tanks. I have gotten around some model's grommets by using others or modifying fuel lines. Do you have a good local parts supplier? I finally mentioned a grommet I needed and had worked around. They showed me other brands/models tanks used the grommet.
