Question and Answers

Q:

How do I remove the nut at the end of the shaft of a Craftsman gas trimmer model 358.795150? 358.795150

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
The large nut is referred to as the dust cup. It has standard threads and should unthread by turning it counter clockwise. Since the unit was manufactured in 2001, and has been on there for about 13 years, it may be a little stubborn. I would shoot some penetrating oil around it and let it soak in, and from there you should be able to break it loose. 
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Hi Josh, Thank you for the help. I tried spraying it with Liqiud Wrench and then turning it counter clockwise, but it just spun and spun. I could hear a "clicking" noise up near the engine which I assume was the clutch. I'm not sure what to do at this point. If I were to get the dust cap removed, what would be left? A threaded arbor? I'm not entirely positive that I need to remove the dust cap but the instructions for the new kit say to remove the old head completely and attach the new kit to a threaded arbor.

Weed Wacker help

A:

Model No. 358.795150 and 358.795510 are both 17 inch 25 cc trimmers and the manuals for both state -" This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline." with no reference made to an octane requirement. There should be an expert along with an answer within 48 hours.

Typically you can use 87octane gas, but I notice that many of the pre-mixed, pre-canned fuels on the market are 92octane gasoline so I have to believe that 92-93octane fuel is fine. At the shop, we use 92octane/ethanol free fuel in our machines and to put in machines when we need to add fuel.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

craftsman weedtrimer 358.795150 choke fell apart cant figure out how to get back together and cant find easemanual choke assembly not shown please help.

A:

Changing out the fuel lines is a job without much in the way of instructions. I did locate three links with information that may help while you wait for the expert response. The first link contains the parts breakdown diagrams. The second link contains two videos. The third link has a diagram from a previous post. I hope some of this information helps to get the weedwacker back together again and cutting weeds.

Thank you for your question on the choke lever and choke plate position behind the air box.

The choke plate should contact the face of the carburetor with the detents showing towards the outside.

Then the choke lever with go in front of the choke plate and recess into the center hole with the tabs on the choke lever engaging into the detents on the choke plate.

Slide the long carburetor bolts in from the outside of the air box and through the choke plate and capturing the choke lever between the air box and the choke plate.

I wish I had a picture of this but I do not.

Please let me know how it went with the assembling.

Sam A.
