If the spark is not strong and blue on the spark plug when testing, then I recommend you replace it. If that does not change anything then you may want to check the muffler and spark screen (on the muffler) to make sure they are not plugged up with carbon deposits. But from your description, it sounds like the problem will be the spark plug.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the chainsaw. We do not have any written instructions for replacing the fuel line on chainsaws but I will try to help you. First, remove the air filter cover and the air filter. Then draw a diagram of how the fuel line is routed. I have also provided you with an image below showing the fuel line circuit. Then remove the all of the old fuel lines from the saw. When you are ready to reinstall the line cut one end so that it is tapered about an inch up. This will give you something to stick into the hole of the tank. Once in the hole reach into the tank with long forceps and grab the line and pull it through. Once you have it pulled in cut the pointed end off and install the filter. The line should be long enough so the fuel filter is on the bottom of the fuel tank. Then do the same for the return line. The only difference is the return line only has to be sticking in the tank about a half an inch.

I have found a few videos that I think might help you. Please click here to watch the first video . Then click here to watch the second video.

Q:

I have a Craftsman chainsaw, model 358351082. Can you help with fuel line installation?

A:

Your information of the routing of the fuel lines on the chainsaw seems correct. The orifices you describe are probably rubber grommets. The fuel lines go through the rubber grommets and into the tank. The rubber grommets seal the fuel lines so there is no leak. The fuel line that goes from the primer to the tank goes into the tank and attaches to the fuel pick up filter. This line needs to be long enough that the fuel pick up can always go to the lowest part of the fuel tank. When you rotate the saw into different positions, the fuel pick up will move to the lowest part of the tank so it can pick up fuel if the tank is not full.

Remove the fuel cap and, with a clean piece of wire, fish the fuel lines out of the tank. Confirm what I have told you and measure the line inside the tank to know how long to leave your new fuel line.

The other fuel line that goes into the tank is a return line and the length inside the tank is not critical.

When you press the primer bulb, you draw fuel from the tank and force it through the carburetor to insure fresh fuel is inside the carburetor.

You do not attach the new fuel lines to the existing fuel lines. The new fuel lines should replace the existing fuel lines inside the tank.

MMH Expert_Jimmy K- you stated in this post that the primer tube goes to the tank and filter, yet in a post to Phil1957 the diagram attached shows the line with the filter goes to the carb. My primer has a small and large barb, the tank has a large and small orifice, and carb has a top and bottom barb. Note: primer bulb is also 1 way with large barb being discharge and small tube barb is intake. Confused !
