Even though this kit is not meant for the Echo GT200R, it can easily be adapted for use. Home Depot is nearby, and I did not want to wait and order the specific part I needed online. I dismantled the new assembly and used only what I needed, which is the grommet and saved the other parts. I noted the positioning of the tubing before starting work – photographing it in case I forget or become confused. As long as you do not have gigantic hands, grommet replacement can be performed without having to remove the tank and without having to disconnect the fuel lines from the engine. A Popsicle stick is a must for grommet removal and installation. A work bench will make doing this work easier and cleaner.
On my GT-200R trimmer, I pulled out the yellow (return) tubing from the cracked and leaky grommet to facilitate its removal. The yellow tubing will retain the indentation from sitting compressed by the old grommet. The indentation will allow the yellow tubing to snap into place in the new grommet.
Use the Popsicle stick to help nudge and pop the old grommet out of the tank. After removing the old grommet, I noted the lengths of how the two remaining tubing project into the tank. The black (vent) tubing, with the white one-way valve at one end, pulls off the old grommet easily. The black (feed) tubing needs removal of the fuel filter first before the tubing can be completely pulled off the old grommet. (Tip: Use the long edge of the Popsicle stick to slip the retainer ring off the tip of the tubing.)
Coat the new grommet with your 2-cycle oil and slip the three tubing into place, but slip and insert the yellow tubing last. To attach the fuel filter to the black (feed) tubing, first slip the retainer ring onto the tubing near the tip, then slip the tubing together with the retainer ring simultaneously over the barb of the fuel filter outlet. Adjust the lengths of the three tubing to their position before inserting the new grommet assembly into the tank.
To install the new grommet, push down and slip one side of the grommet into the tank hole. While continuing to push down on the grommet, use the Popsicle stick to nudge and coax the side of the grommet that is sticking out into the hole on the tank. After the successfully seating the new grommet, use the Popsicle stick to nudge and help rotate the grommet into its final position, if necessary.

Came with everything I needed very easy install. Also included the primer bulb which I didn't know was included so that was a plus.

My string trimmer had become difficult to start. I purchased this re-power kit to replace the fuel line it went right in and fit well into the gas tank. Trimmer starts right up again!

I spend half a day trying to push the grommet and it was annoying, so I took out the gas tank and I put in fast. I push one side of the grommet in and having my father pushing with his thumb, while I with a screwdriver was pushing the sides to finally put it in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wallace Works For SRM210 Trimmer
Worked for my SRM210. I read where it took a bit of time to install the grommet. I took the time to remove the gas tank (with out removing the pull starter), then I was able to get some leverage on the grommet to press it into the tank. I also greased the grommet with general grease and used a small wrench bridged across the grommet for leverage. Worked out well.
