Thank you for your question.   

I am sorry you are having a problem with the blower. I looked up the model number you submitted. According to the parts image the only thing in the tank is the fuel filter connected to the end of the fuel line. If it looks like there is a bunch of other parts in the tank, I suspect the parts you are seeing are parts of the fuel line. Over time, the fuel line can get hard and brittle. If the line left in the tank is hard and brittle, you will need to replace the fuel line. I found a video that shows how to install the line into the tank. Click here to watch the video.

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.   Thank you for using Manage my life.  Mark T.

Q:

How is the gas line connected from the tank, carb and primer bulb on a Craftsman gas blower, model 358.798940?

A:

You have one large fuel line and one smaller. This eliminates some chance for error. If you have 2 small fuel lines to the carburetor connect them and start the engine. Reversing the fuel lines will not prevent the engine from starting. If you have them connected backwards, the engine will start and die. Reverse them and you will be correct.

The routing of the fuel lines vary from model to model. Keep in mind that the primer bulb circulates fuel from the tank, through the carburetor, and back into the fuel tank. One line goes from the fuel tank to the carburetor. One line goes from the fuel tank to the primer bulb, from the primer bulb to the carburetor, and back to the fuel tank.

I am sending you an image of the fuel line routing for most trimmers and blowers.
