Check balls are not used in these fuel pipes. The screen
housing or pipe must be replaced if the screen can not
be satisfactorily cleaned. The long pipe supplies fuel
from the tank to the pump. The short pipe supplies fuel
from the tank cup to the carburetor. Fig. 47. Fuel pipes
are nylon or brass. Nylon pipes are removed and
replaced by using a 6 point socket, or open end wrench.

off the brass housing with a screw driver. The new
housing is installed by tapping it on the pipe with a soft
hammer, Fig. 49.
