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:

How do I replace the fuel lines on my chainsaw?

A:

Yes that is where the primer line goes into the tank. We aren't given specific schematics for the fuel lines for some reason. But I have included a basic schematic provided by the manufacturer that is pretty easy to understand.

If you require further assistance please resubmit question with more details. I will be looking forward to helping you again in the near future.

I have a 358 360131. I think I have replaced the fuel lines properly, however I would like a schematic to be sure I have them in the right place. I got it to start one time after replacing the lines, it ran about 5 seconds and won't start again. Hard to find anyone to work on it out here and the Sears store can only ship it off somwhere. Seems like a fuel starvation, but can't figure it out. Any help appreciated.

Q:

Bar is stuck.

A:

With the chain still on to protect the bar, loosen the holding nuts, put a block of wood against the tip of the bar and strike the board INWARD with a hammer. This will break loose the sap and gunk that builds up under the bar.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.
 
I added a link to the Operator's Manual and on page 14 it shows how to replace and adjust the bar and chain.
 
Since you have the nuts and the bar clamp/cover removed, you will likely need to turn the adjustment screw to release the tension on the chain. Remove the chain and then the bar should simply pull off the two studs. If the chain is off, you may need to tap on the bar to free it up. If the adjustment screw will not loosen in order to release the tension, you may be turning it the wrong way.
 
If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician fix this problem, you can carry the chain saw into your nearest Sears Repair Center or Sears Store. Here is a link for the Sears Service website that has information on the nearest repair facilities in your area: Sears Home Services.

I don't understand the first answer. What is the "board"? What does "inward" mean? I assume the block of wood is placed under the tip of bar while it is lying on the ground? As to the second answer, the adjustment screw is completely stuck. Thanks so much for responding.

Steve; The adjustment screw which is use to tighten and loose the chain will need to be turned to remove the tension on the chain. If the bar does not become loose, use a block of wood and tap on the tip of the bar where the chain comes over the top of the bar. You are tapping the bar towards the engine. If the adjustment screw is stuck, it will have to be loosened so the bar can be slide back towards the engine or you will not likely get the bar loose. If you can't get the chain adjustment screw loosened, I recommend taking the saw in for repair.
