I'm trying to stock up on fuel filters for my Shin T-230 trimmers. The catalog wants to know if the fuel line is either 1/8" or 3/16". The owners manuel dosn't say, does anybody know?
thanks, Joe

If I remember correctly (and not saying I am) I think the last fuel line I bought from a (Deere) dealer for a Shind. was 1/8th.
Trying to do a search here now to confirm. ( buying from that dealer was a joke...... Atleast 12 years ago..... was 5.00 a foot)
10 foot roll @ J Thomas only around 6.00.

thanks for the reply Metro, but I'm intrested in the fuel filter that fits the Shin T-230. I imagine the 1/8" line would take a smaller filter than the 3/16" line.
Do you know what size fuel filter it uses?
Thanks, Joe

Why don't you just go out and look at the trimmer. That'll take all the guesswork out ot it.
