Question and Answers

Q:

weedwacker 358.791042

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I would start by making sure the upper and lower shafts are firmly connected within the coupler. If they are, then one of the shafts may be stripped and not engaging the other. You will need to disassemble the unit and check the internal flexible shaft cores to see if there are any noticeable issues. Depending on what's worn/damaged, you may need either the upper shaft kit (575260201), or the lower shaft kit (530071788). 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

Craftsman Trimmer Model #358.791042 throttle cable 358791042 Craftsman Trimmer

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

The end of the throttle cable should be shaped like an S or a Z. The end goes through the throttle plate on the carburetor and hooks. Once the end is in the hole, you just press down on it and it will clip into place. I have attached a list of YouTube videos below that will help you if needed.

Q:

I need to know how to lubricate the shaft on trimmer 358.791042.

A:

I can understand how important it is to have the right information for your trimmer. From what you are asking, I am assuming that you are wanting to lubericate the shaft at the trimmer head. This you can do with WD-40. I would suggest that you make sure the head is completely clean before doing this. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance.
