There are two internal fuel lines that are constructed of a heat formed plastic material (this does not
include the fuel hose which is covered in WP 0021 00). One line extends from the outlet end of the
fuel pump to the inlet of the burner assembly and the second extends from the T connector at the
base of the float assembly to the inlet of the fuel pump. A third plastic fuel drain line extends from the
top of the float assembly through the lower housing assembly. All internal fuel lines utilize brass
compression fittings and all are removed and replaced in the same fashion.
1. To remove an internal fuel line (1), loosen the fitting (2) at each end of the fuel line, taking care
not to spill the fuel that may be contained in the line. Drain the fuel into an approved container.
