    My little 345 needs a new main fuel line. Is there an echo replacement that will work? The grommet in the tank. ??

    I doubt it.

    It was hard enough getting parts for them in the 90's.

    Go to eBay and you will find them.

    Amazon may also have couple.

    It will also help a lot if you have the part number.

    See here - pickup tube & fuel line available in stock:

    Sounds like you did not try finding very hard?


    It's so easy to be negative that anyone can do it!

    Yeah, I was a Shindaiwa dealer back then. It was easy to be negative.......

    I don't have to try to finding it very hard, do I? The guy asking the question does.
    So I assumed that sitting at a computer, both of us, that he had already done some online searching.

    Looks like an echo part might fit.

    Parts are available at several on line dealers. Yes, they can be spendy. It has been my experience the fuel lines are a Shindaiwa weak link. I’ve seen them turn to a blob at the bottom of the tank.

    Yeah, they were always a weak point.
    It is great that Echo is continuing the parts support!! Because it sucked in the 1990s.
