Question and Answers

Q:

fuel routing 358351900 Craftsman Chain saw

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
If it starts, then the fuel lines are on correct. It's either it starts or it won't with the fuel lines. If they were on incorrectly, it wouldn't start at all.
Check the fuel lines to make sure they are not kinked or pinched. If they look good then there may be something going on with the kill switch wire or possibly the spark plug lead. Then I would double check the carburetor. When checking the carburetor, make sure the gasket between the air filter mount and the carburetor is still there and in good shape.  If it is missing, it could cause carburetor related issues. 
It's got to be something small or simple if the carb is new. You can also take the plug out and attach it to the boot and check for spark to see if it's weak.
Hope these suggestions help and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

not starting 358351900 Craftsman Chain saw

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
This sounds like a fuel issue with it bogging down when you pull the trigger. Besides the carburetor, this could be caused by the carb/adapter gasket being weak or slightly worn. If you replaced that with the carburetor, it should be good. 
In regards to spark, before replacing the spark module, I would check the air gap, and see if any adjustment is needed. The air gap should be between .010" to .012". It's about the thickness of a standard business card. When you checked spark, was it right after it died or after cool down? Next time it dies out, pull the plug and check spark right away and see if it's weak or no spark. If the gap checks out and the spark is minimal after running, I would replace the module. If there is spark, it sounds fuel related.
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

chainsaw wont start Craftsman Chain saw

A:

Hello, glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com.
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when having trouble with the chain saw.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Craftsman Chainsaw model number 358.351900.

I see you have trouble starting the chain saw.   You have a strong blue spark.   Make sure the gap on this spark plug is set at 0.025 inches.  Champion RCJ-7Y.

Make sure you read the manual of fuel page 9.  I have it on the link below.  Lots of times if the carburetor went bad because of the "ethanol" gas, it also destroys the fuel filter and the fuel lines.   Always make sure you are using fresh gas.   This isn't the same gas we used 20 years ago.   It just isn't good for small engines without using fresh gas and using fuel stabilizer.

Page 10 shows the difficult startng procedures.

Large fuel line part #530069216
Small fuel line part #530069247
Fuel filter part #530095649
Fuel stabilizer #100002
