Q:

How do I replace fuel lines on Craftsman 2-cycle Mini-Tiller Model #316-29256?

A:

Hi, I am Mark and I will be helping you today. Wade has left the company to move back home to Louisiana. I have found a video that will aid in determining where the fuel line connects. I have posted the link below.You have a 50/50 chance for getting it right. Once you have the fuel lines connected watch the bubbles in the return line when you push the primmer. The bubbles should be flowing back to the tank in the larger line. If the bubbles going though the small line back to the tank, the lines are reversed. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Q:

replacing the rotor/clutch on a 536.292522 cultivator 31629256 Craftsman Cultivator

A:

Thank you for your question.I will be happy to assist you. There are not any special instructions for removing the engine from the gear case. Just remove the four bolts to separate them. You may need to take the cable and wires loose to maneuver the engine to access the clutch. Once the engine is off, remove the spark plug and pull the start rope until the piston is down. Then insert about 10 inches of a 12 inch piece of 1/4 inch soft rope. The rope will keep the engine from turning when you loosen the clutch. Now you can do the repair. Be sure to turn the gear case shaft once it is apart to ensure the problem is not in the gear case. A broken gear in the gear case will cause the same problem you are having.   I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.  Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.

Q:

I have a model 316-29256 tiller. After running for 15-20 min it will not shut off. I checked the switch and wire, They are ok.

A:

The on-off switch has 2 wires on it. One goes to a ground screw, the other goes to the ignition module on the engine. When you turn the switch to the off position, it closes a circuit to ground that stops the ignition module from firing the spark plug.

If the connections are all good and the switch is closing, the ignition module on the engine might be bad.

Be sure the connection to ground is clean and tight. Check the wire carefully for a kink or a pinched place that could be opening up when the engine heats up.

If you have an ohm meter, check the circuit from the wire that connects to the ignition module to a clean ground.
