Q:

Loose Head Bolts on 358.794771 Blower 358794771 Craftsman Gas blower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the blower.

If the head bolts keep coming loose, I recommend using red Loctite on the bolts. This should keep the bolts from coming loose. Before putting the Loctite on the bolts, thread the bolts in to the holes. Then see if the bolts seem loose in the holes. If they seem loose, you can try new bolts but the problem is likely the holes are worn.

If the bolts seem like they are tight enough in the holes go ahead and put a few drops on Loctite on the bolt threads. Then tighten the bolts to 90 inch pounds. Before checking the operation, let the engine sit for a few hours to give the Loctite time to dry. Once it is cured you and check the operation. 

That should do the trick for you. Let us know if we can be of any further assistance and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
