Fuel line cut Compact 22 with Subaru

Got a new carb and gaskets...Now the thrower runs great.............For a few minutes...Then it's gas everywhere, as the fuel line form the tank is getting cut..Ostensibly by the flywheel, which looks very close to the fuel line path...What am I getting wrong here? Maybe I should pull the recoil and the tins off and check the relationship?...Anyone know the trick to routing the line? Thanks

That's a fire hazard. If I was doing that job, I'd remove the flywheel blower housing and do a visual inspection.

Many fuel lines run behind the pull cover from tank to carb. I would pull that cover and inspect.

In the picture, that cut looks very close to the tank.... sure it was the flywheel that did that?

Or is this a single stage thrower, or a 2 stage blower?

Regular two stage, compact 24... I agree at a glance it looks close...But that line is tough stuff, hard to cut and that cut mark is thick...I think pulling the tins and inspecting is the only way..

I'm thinking that's the only way...Can't believe nobody has had this happen, nothing on the web...Second time for me...And the routing looks straightforward...
