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.

If you need further assistance, please feel free to reply below with more details.

I have a Sears Craftsman chainsaw model 358.360130 which I took apart to replace the fuel lines. I put everything together and it works but I am sure it is not hooked up like it was originally. The gas tank has 2 openings: 1 in the far right corner (as seen from handle end of the saw) and 1 on the left closer to the handle. I have the fuel line with the filter coming out of the far right hole of the gas tank and going to the connector on the carb on the upper right. There is also another connector on the carb on the lower left. Would it run like it does if the gas line is to the wrong connector on the carb?"

I think the lines are connected correctly. I base this on the fact that the saw runs. Usually if the lines are not correct, the engine will not run. To be sure, I recommend watching a video showing how the lines should be connected. I have posted a link below for the video. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thanks Mark for the reassurance. I have watched the video you recommended many times and that is what I based my reconstruction on. The set up on the Poulan is very similar to mine except that in the video both carb lines were on the right side and on my saw they are 1 on each side. I thought that the line from the gas tank to the carb was from the nearest opening in the tank to the connector on the lower left of the carb. But when I tried this, the hole to the tank was too small to get a line through, so I used the far opening. And since in the video the gas goes to the top of the carb, that is what I did. I will let you know if any other combination works.

I have attached a drawing of how the fuel lines are to be run. Let's start by making sure we have the fuel lines connected correctly.

If the fuel lines are connected correctly I suspect an issue with the carburetor as being the problem. In most instances it's most reasonable to replace the carburetor if there is a problem with it.

Let me know the situation with the fuel lines and we can go from there.
