So I'm sitting getting ready to change my fuel filter, it's past time. I get on Ebay and it's telling me my filter (691035), which is for a Briggs Intek 24hp, is for a 5/16 line. I didn't know any Briggs lawn stuff motors ran 5/16 fuel lines....I thought they only used 1/4"?

I'd also like to put shut off on the line, just because I too lazy to clamp it when I want to change filters again. Would the shut off go before or after the filter on this motor to prevent a lot of clean up? Aarpy

most machines use 1/4 inch & u want the shut-off close to the tank.. then the filter..

I wanted to add something here that may give you confidence in the 1/4" line being accurate advice from Whirly.

The fuel pump, (if equipped), will be the easiest to confirm 1/4" line being used, but the filter, shut-off valve, and carb inlet nipple too. The line itself might say 1/4" on it.

Allowing for something strange, the parts manuals have been off from time to time.

I think the Ebay seller might have the spec off.:tango_face_smile:

For oil changes. I found that the easier I could make it, the more often they would occur.

This little device makes changing the filter clean, and simple. It fits perfectly so the oil dripping after oil filter removal goes into it. Cleaning this plastic is simple too.



This next item is a bit spendy. I originally bought it for my boat oil changes. I had a hose kit for my older Briggs Intek motor.
I started using this for all my power equipment, because it's stable, and again, easy.



Just ideas,

Thanks guys for the help and tips. I pulled the contrived yellow oil drain contraption off my Husqvarna and replaced with 3/8 metal piping and a cap. No problem changing oil now, cleaner too.

Wish I'd thought to check the fuel line....it's 1/4". Thanks again, you guys on here are great! Aarpy
