Question and Answers

Q:

Starter Rope 316794970 Craftsman Blower/vacuum

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the rewind starter not engaging the flywheel. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

You will want to disassemble the starter housing and visually inpsect the rewind starter. I suspect that the pawls within the starter assembly are damaged, which is why it's not engaging the flywheel. I don't see the pawls being offered singly, but the rewind starter assembly is part number 753-05010. I have linked the parts list below that shows the various starter components on the schematic.

Q:

Replacing fuel line 316794970 Craftsman Blower/vacuum

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your blower/vacuum. Upon researching 316794970; it would be best to replace the fuel line assembly as well as the return fuel line. It would be good to clean out the tank and the carburetor at the same time. The fuel lines are just fitted onto a fitting.

We appreciate your business. Have a great day.

Q:

Will not remain in full speed 316794970 Craftsman Blower/vacuum

A:

Hello, glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. We, at Sears, we value your business.
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the blower/vacuum.
 
Glad to help out.  I’m looking at your Craftsman Blower model number 316794970.
 
Based on your symptom the engine is not likely getting enough fuel at full throttle. This could be contributed to a carburetor issue, crack in the fuel line or even possibly the lack of compression due to piston rings or scoring of the cylinder walls. If you set the choke about midway and then set it to full throttle and it seems to want to increase in RPM then the failure is likely in the carburetor or a cracked fuel line. The carburetor may have an adjustable HIGH SPEED and LOW SPEED needle valves screws located on the carburetor which you could adjust to en-richen the fuel to air ratio. If your carburetor has a HIGH and LOW speed needle valve, turn the HIGH SPEED needle valve counter clockwise (CCW)to richen up the high speed fuel mixture.

Make sure you change or clean the air filter often.  Make sure that you always use clean fuel.   Ethanol fuel has destroyed many carburetors and cleaning them will not help.   Change the carburetor then you should change the fuel filter and fuel lines.
 
Please "RESUBMIT ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS IF THERE IS ANY OTHER PROBLEMS".
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our SearsPartsDirect.com.
