Q:

engine oil change 987799790 Craftsman Chipper vac

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly assist you in locating the instuctions to replace the oil on your chipper vac. I did look into th emodle number you have provided and I have found information to assist you.

A. Checking and Changing Oil
To avoid engine damage, it is important to:
• Check oil level before each use and every 5
operating hours when engine is warm.
• Change oil after first 2 operating hours and every 3
months or every 25 operating hours thereafter;
more often if operated in extremely dusty or dirty
conditions. Engine should still be warm but NOT hot
from recent use.
1. Be sure you find the correct drain plug location,
if provided. See Figure 37.
2. Carefully disconnect spark plug wire and keep it away
from spark plug. See "G. Avoid Accidental Starts"
instructions on page 3. Afterward, continue reading
instructions below.
• Keep the disconnected spark plug wire securely
away from metal parts where arcing could occur.
• Attach the spark plug wire to the grounding post, if
provided.
3. Be sure the fuel fill cap is on and is tightened securely.
4. Clean area around oil drain plug.
5. Place approved recyclable oil container under oil drain
plug, tipping engine to position the oil drain plug at the
lowest point on the engine.
6. Remove oil drain plug and drain oil.

I am sorry to hear you are having a problem with the lawn vac.  I did some research and found that we no longer offer the bag. I did find one site that claims they have the replacement bag.
