Question and Answers

Q:

starts but doesn't continue running 358797200 Craftsman Blower

A:

This may just be a tuning issue with the carburetor. Turn the adjustment screws all the way in and then back them out 1.5 turns each. From there, fine tune the carburetor until it runs correctly at both high and low speeds. Adjust for high speed first and then adjust for low speed.

Thank you for the model number on your blower. The first thing you should do is make sure the fuel tank is empty so you do not spill fuel. The remove the cap off the bottom of the blower. Most to them will twist to remove. Then remove the spark plug and put something like some old starter rope or a heavy shoe string in the spark plug hole and leave enough out to get a hold of it after you are done. The remove the nut on the blower wheel. Then remove the screws on the lower half of the blower tube housing. Once you have the housing and blower wheel removed you will need to remove the screws that hold the motor to the upper housing. Remove the engine from the upper blower housing. This will expose the starter assembly and the starter spring is under the starter pulley. Then remove the pulley and rope and replace the spring. If you need more detail then please let me know.

Q:

Need blower fuel line connection instructions or very good diagram.

A:

Diagrams are very helpful for fuel lines. I found a previous post that has a general diagram for a 2-cycle blower. Maybe this will get you started while you wait for the expert. Good luck!

Thank you for the question.

We do not have a fuel line diagram for your blower. The filter will attach to the end of the small fuel line. This line is the fuel pick up line. The other line is the vent line. To install the new fuel line you have to cut the end of the line at a severe angle. Push the angled end into the hole of the tank. Then reach into the fuel tank opening with a long pair of needle nose pliers and pull the fuel line into the tank. Once you have the correct amount in the tank cut the end of the fuel line square and install the fuel filter. The vent line only has to hang in the tank about a 1/2 inch.

The fuel filter is connected to the end of the pick up line and sits in the bottom the fuel tank.

Please use the images below to help in the routing of the fuel line. The second image shows how to cut the line. Your model does not use the fuel line fittings shown in the image.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

There is no mention of the 2-ended plastic barbed fitting that I have and did not notice where it was installed when I removed the crumbling fuel line. This fitting appears to be the right size to fit into the smaller hole on my fuel tank. However, if I install it, I have no clue how to connect a fuel or air line on the inside side of this fitting. I also have a little rubber fitting that opens up but typically is closed kind of like the nozzle where you blow up a whoopie cushion.

I have checked the parts break down and I do not see the check valve or connector listed for this blower. Usually the lines will go through the tank without a connector. The holes in the tank should be a little smaller than the fuel line so that they seal to the tank without any sealer. On the models that use the barbed connector, the line goes through the tank and the connector is about a 1/2 inch above the tank. The check valve (whoopee cushion part) should attach to the return line inside of the tank. The return line comes from the primer. I have seen some older models that have the connectors inside of the tank. To attach these connectors, pull the line into the tank and out the fill hole. Install the connector and a four inch piece of tubing on the pick up line and install the filter. Next pull the pick up line back through the hole in the tank until the connector is almost touching the hole in the tank.

Do the same for the return line, just do not add any extra line inside of the tank. The check valve is the only piece that connects to the return line. I hope this is helpful. Mark T.

I have the craftsman/sears blower vac (Model 358.798980). I too, needed to replace the brittle fuel lines. You diagram indicates that the "check" valve on the vent line has both a connector and an insert. I found the connector in the bottom of the tank but no insert. The Parts person could not tell me the number. Do you know what it is? The website is: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Craftsman-Parts/Leaf-blower-Parts/Model-358798980/0247/1503120/10039282/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= Also, does it make any difference which of the connector ports to the primer bulb the vent line attaches?

I am sorry you are having a problem with the blower. The connector and the check valve are not needed any longer. Just run the return fuel line into the tank about a 1/2 inch and connect the other end of the return to the long nipple of the primmer. The short nipple should connect to the hose from the carburetor. The other line is the supply line and has the fuel filter connected to it. That line will run from the tank directly to the carburetor. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
