Hey Agrav8, I went to my local garden shop and asked for a fuel pickup for chainsaws like you said you had. You said it really sucks up the fuel. I asked the guy about the part number and he gave me one and said it was the same thing.

Is this ok?

It looks more like this

Not to say that yours will not. The foam on mine touches the tank, and yours is "caged". I would be cautious about low fuel until it proves itself.

Jared,

I used one like you have on my last gasser with good results. Just remember when using a filter clunk, do not fuel the tank thru the pick-up line as it will polute the carb side of the filter if there is ANY foreign matter in you fuel.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

What Steve said!
I use one in my fuel tank, and the heli tank. I fill by the return line, so fuel only goes one way through the filter in the heli.

Mark Smith showed me this so I can not take credit in this part of the country

What's the mfg. or part number for that filter, and where can we order them? I need to get one of those.

Maybe I live life a little dangerously, but I've always felt filters on the heli/plane add one more point of possible failure.

I've just used 1-2 filters on my delivery system for over 20 years and have never had a problem...

Anyone else as crazy as me?

Warren, because Tygon is Tygon, a gasser's pick-up/klunk is not as reactive as a glow set-up. The fliter klunks, like the Stens I mentioned, and James has pictured, hold a lot of fuel, being very heavy, make the Tygon cooperate. The filtering benefit is secondary at best. James, the "foam" is actually mylar, I believe. Very easy membrane for the fuel to go through, yet very fine filtering ability. BillMe's favorite.

Agreed on the weight issue.

I've been using a Dubro heavy clunk with the Aerotrend blue line.

I thinks Sears parts also stocks this Poulan part number:

530-014362

http://www3.sears.com/

Enter the part number above and it is listed under lawn and garden for $2.29
I haven't ordered this particular fuel filter yet, but I've ordered other stuff from Sears parts for trimmers and such.

Heino,
Good find! I called a bazillion small engine shops in my city and none of them could help me with the Stens or Poulan part number. I just ordered three from Sears.

Thanks,
John

John,
No problem, glad to help. I just ordered a couple myself. Too bad it cost $4.50 or so to ship the $2 part....

I did a comparison of two clunks and have a pic in my gallery of the two clunks


The Rotary was heavier, etc. seemed to work better as far as being a clunk weight.

I've been flying the rotary since and have not had an issue with it at all.

I think both of those clunks could use a little Viagra.

I found the rotary clunk at the Home Depot in my area for $3.50. It was on clearance and came with a air filter.

Just got this from Sears:

I'm assuming this is the right clunk?
