Q:

Oil and fuel leak(s) 316350840 Craftsman Chainsaw

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If it leaks gas/oil as soon as the gas/oil tank is filled, check the fuel tank seam for leaks in the bottom corner below the fuel cap. If the gas/oil tank is leaking at the seam, replace the gas/oil tank. If it's not leaking at the seam, check where the fuel and oil line is connected to the tank for leaks. There is no other seals or gaskets involve, just the tank and hoses.

Q:

Excessive Chain/Bar oil use, leakage 316350840 Craftsman Chainsaw

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. 

First check the gas tank/oil tank assembly for a crack in the seams. The gas/oil tank is one assembly and it's not easily removed or replaced if you find a cracked seam.

I strongly suggest taking the chainsaw in for repair.

Q:

I think I've gotten to what is possibly the model # of a craftsman/Poulan chainsaw that i'm working on. I need more details on connections between parts

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the chainsaw. We do not have any written instructions for replacing the fuel line on chainsaws but I will try to help you. First, remove the air filter cover and the air filter. Then draw a diagram of how the fuel line is routed. I have also provided you with an image below showing the fuel line circuit. Then remove the all of the old fuel lines from the saw. When you are ready to reinstall the line cut one end so that it is tapered about an inch up. This will give you something to stick into the hole of the tank. Once in the hole reach into the tank with long forceps and grab the line and pull it through. Once you have it pulled in cut the pointed end off and install the filter. The line should be long enough so the fuel filter is on the bottom of the fuel tank. Then do the same for the return line. The only difference is the return line only has to be sticking in the tank about a half an inch.
