Question and Answers

Q:

358.795521 Unit starts and cuts out 358795521 Craftsman Trimmer/weedwacker

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the trimmer. I know how frustrating that is.

I am curious on how you've rebuilt the carburetor, because they are not rebuildable. They are also very tough to clean and get into the passageways thoroughly. You could have an issue with the carburetor, which is causing the fuel leakage and smoking. A damaged internal check valve and poor mixture could cause those symptoms. 

The compression should be around 100 PSI, but it would need a minimum of about 90 PSI to start. The engine does not have a model number, and would be manufactured or contracted for manufacture by the trimmer manufacturer, which is Poulan. 

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

It could be either end of the drive shaft or the clutch failing. Remove the hub end from the shaft and see if it's worn down, it will look rounded if it is. If that looks good then remove the shaft from the motor head and check the drive shaft end there for rounding. If that looks good as well then I would say the clutch has failed.

Once you determine if it's the clutch, drive shaft, or hub you can go HERE with the model number to order the replacement part(s).

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

choke shutter 358795521 Craftsman Trimmer/weedwacker

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be happy to help with your line trimmer. Upon researching model number 358795521; I show the choke spacer goes on the screw first. Then the washer goes on the screw. Then the screw would be tightened on to the choke shutter. This would put the washer in between the spacer and shutter.

Thank you for choosing Sears. We appreciate your business. Have a great day.
