Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Craftsman 358.360690 chainsaw.  The unit ran for several seconds before shutting down.  The spark plug is working and you indicate fuel is reaching the spark plug.  Fresh fuel comes to mind first.  If the unit is being started with old fuel that may cause a similar problem.  Sinde the unit was being used for the first time this year I would suggest a fresh fuel/oil mix.  The fuel filter may be partial clogged.  You indicate some fuel is reaching the spark plug but I wonder if enough fuel is reaching the spart plug.  A carbureator problem would also be a possibility.  Check the fuel and fuel filter and fuel line first to resolve the problem.

A:

Yes, the carburetor assembly number you have is for the complete carburetor. In many cases, the carburetor is very reasonably priced and it's not much more than a carburetor rebuild kit.

A:

On that particular saw it cannot be done. This is due to the way the 2 bolt system is arranged on the main part of the saw body. The 2 studs that stick out on those models are part of the main saw body. Your saw does not have a place for those studs to even be there.

I'm much more in favor of the 2 bolt set up myself and tend to grab one of my saws with that design before I will the other.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

What is the model number on the saw. If your has 2 studs sticking out, I have another saw in mind. I still don't think you will be able to to change over to a different type of cover but I do want to make sure.

Okay, I see now what you have. There is not an "authorized way around it". I've not ever looked into it too much. Right off I can see that the chain guard assembly from a late 1990's or early 2000 model saw won't work for this one because the chain brake is not the same. You may be able to find a local shop that could do the conversion on it but I just don't know because of the way the chain brake is designed. On the older ones, the chain brake is made into the chain guard (cover) assembly. On your saw the brake is into the body of the saw.

Local shop you are talking Sears or a lawn mower shop. No lawn mower shop will even look at it because it is a sears I tried. The problem I have with this saw after a few cuts the chain gets real lose or falls off. How can I repair this. That is why I wanted to change over. I think it is a poor set up. Let me know what I can do. Thanks

I meant local independent shop. Sears cannot change something like that over unless it's factory authorized. I'm shocked a local shop won't take a look at it. Down here in Texas, local shops love to get our saws in. Poulan manufactures our saws and stuff for them is readily available with very little wait time in most cases. But I guess shops do vary from place to place. For your specific situation: Remove the cover and the wheel you use to tighten the guard back down and see if there is anything worn under that. There should be some teeth under the wheel (on the wheel) and on the chain guard itself. If those get worn down you can have problems getting the chain to stay tight. When you have a new chain there will be some initial stretching. Because of this, I've seen people really go overboard tightening the chain down and wear out those teeth on the chain guard and wheel.
