craftsman 32cc weedeater won't start
I was given an old craftsman weedeater model #358795580. It would start up but the gas poured out the back. I replaced the fuel lines and pressure bulb, and it would start and trim about 15 feet of grass along the wall then die out. I then bought the proper replacement spark plug from sears and put it in. The first time I tried it started immediately then died. Then, would not start again. I have read about a gap in the spark plug? Could this be the problem or do they come with the proper gap. If its not the gap, what else could be wrong. Taking it to Sears would cost $60 just for labor, so everyone says a new one would be about the same.

i would like to assist you with your weedwacker not running properly. i have included a diagram that shows the common way for the fuel lines to be connected. i suggest verifying that the fuel line on yours is correctly routed. after that, check that the bolts that hold the head down and also the ones that attach the carburetor are secure and not loose. i am suspicious of the short duration running of the engine after the line replacement. another thing is to ensure that the fuel is fresh, fuel will go stale after only about five weeks or so, let's make sure we have a fresh start. i will be happy to walk you through all of the things that should be checked on this, start here and reply with anything that you find and we'll go from there.
