Hi,

I'm new to the board (obviously with only one post). I was searching online for some information and figured this was the best place to find it.

Two days ago I moved my Foreman 500 and left it idling. Came back a minute or so later, only to find the gas dumping onto the garage floor. Appears that the fuel line dry rotted and broke in half. I have not had a chance to crawl under it yet and was wondering if replacing the fuel line with a new one is fairly straight forward? I was unable to locate any photos/diagrams online, but assume its just swap old one out for the new and away I go.

Thanks for any information you can provide!

Great, thank you! I guess a mouse could have chewed on it as I had it outside for a few days while I was working on the foundation of my garage. Once I get a closer look at it, I will probably know for sure.

Once you get the hose off take a piece down to your hard ware store or lowses and get the right size but make sure get the clear kind not the sling shot kind and get more then u need because u don't want to be going back for more ;)

One thing that I would check is to see is if the gas is coming out of the carb. The floats could be stuck. How long has it been sitting?

if gas is leaking out, then air is entering in...and i doubt it was running with that much air entering the fuel delivery. probably a stuck float in the carb, and is venting the excess fuel out of the overflow.

Now that I really checked it over, I believe that the float is stuck. What do I need to do to take care of that? Thanks!
