Q:

is there any diagram on how to reconnect fuel line on a 32cc weedwacker? 358.797161.32cc

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your trimmer and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 358797161 and you can empty the fuel tank and use a coat hanger or piece of heavy wire to fish the fuel filter out of the tank. Pull the fuel filter off. Pull the fuel line out of the gas tank. Pull the other end of the gas line off of the carburetor. Cut the new gas line to the proper length. Trim the end of the side that goes into the gas tank to a point so that you can push it through the opening in the tank. Push the new fuel line into the tank and fish the end out with the coat hanger or wire mentioned above. Trim the end so that it is straight and install the fuel filter. Attach the other end of the fuel line to the carburetor. NOTE: Replacing the fuel line is normally a task that is performed by a technician. Improperly replacing a fuel line can result in a fire and serious injury. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

There is a front half and rear half making up the shroud. In order to remove the housing, the drive shaft must be taken out first where it connects to the front of the clutch housing. Then remove the screws on the clutch housing and remove the clutch housing. Remove the spark plug and feed some rope into the spark plug hole leaving 4-5 inches of rope hanging out. The rope is use to prevent the engine from spinning over when removing the nut securing the clutch to the shaft. Turn the nut counter clockwise (CCW) to remove the nut. Once the nut is off, remove the screws securing the front housing to the rear housing and then you can separate the two housing. 

I added a link to Searspartsdirect where you can view the parts of the Craftsman weedwacker model 358.797161.

The image will be helpul in see how it fits together. I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

It sounds like you have a carburetor problem. Be sure the fuel in the tank is less than 5 weeks old or has fuel stabilizer in it. If the fuel is good, you can remove the carburetor from the engine, take it apart, and clean and inspect the insides of it. There is no repair kit for your carburetor. If you order a new carburetor from Parts Direct be sure you order the correct one. The brand name (Zama or Walbro) is stamped on the body of the carburetor.
