Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

The gearbox is only being offered as a complete assembly and the manufacturer did not break it down into individual replacement parts or offer a rebuild for it.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

clutch problem maybe ???????? 358798280 Craftsman Sears brushwacker

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

The issue could be with the clutch assembly, but it could also be drive shaft related, or an issue with the gearbox. The most likely would be the clutch though, and you will want to disassemble it to inspect it for wear. You may not need the clutch hub, but if it has wear, it would be a good idea.

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

Thank you for your question.I am sorry you are having a problem with the trimmer. If the engine is bogging down when you pull the trigger, I suspect the engine is not getting the fuel needed to speed up. Dirt in the carburetor passages usually causes this type of problem. You can try to clean the carburetor and see if it cures the problem. I found a video that shows how to clean the carburetor. Click here to watch the video.   If this does not cure the problem and you are using fresh fuel, I recommend replacing the carburetor. The parts for the trimmer can be ordered from the following link. Replacement part for trimmer model 358.798280. 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 . I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.   Thank you for using Manage My Life. Mark T.
