Question and Answers

Q:

I have a blower model 358794963. How do you get the fuel line from carb through the housing wall into the gas tank?

A:

The fuel line has a grommet around it that inserts into the fuel tank.

You need to drain the fuel tank by pouring the fuel into an approved container or running the blower until the fuel is all burned.

Remove the fuel cap and bend a piece of coat hanger wire into a small hook on one end. Catch the fuel line with the filter on it and pull the filter out of the fuel tank.

Remove the filter from the fuel line and pull the fuel line out of the fuel tank through the grommet. If you remove the grommet it will tear and have to be replaced.

Put the new fuel line through the grommet and push it into the fuel tank. Put the same amount of line into the fuel tank that you removed.

Catch the fuel line with the coat hanger wire and pull it out of the fuel tank. Install the fuel filter on the fuel line and put the fuel line and filter into the fuel tank.

Q:

Changing Spark Plug

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

You should be able to remove the spark plug boot and use a 3/4 inch socket wrench to remove the spark plug without any dis-assembly. I added an image below with the instructions taken from the Owner's manual.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

The pull cord has come out on my leaf blower #358794963. I am having trouble getting the housing apart to replace it. Please provide some instructions.

A:

Thank you for your question on replacing the starter cord on the leaf blower.

I am sorry that you are having a problem with taking the blower apart to repair the starter assembly.

I understand that these can be a little difficult to dismantle to get to the starting system.

As you know, you will have to split the outer case to do the repair.

On some models you will need to remove the handle and the clip at the bottom of the blower housing behind the leaf door that holds the two half’s together at that point.

I usually lay the blower on its side and begin to remove all the screws that are recessed that hold the two half’s together. On some models you will have to remove the muffler cover and muffler to be able to remove the outer shell. As you find all the screws observe if they are different lengths and keep track of where they go in the housing.

Also on some models you may have to remove the vacuum blower wheel to get to the secondary screws that supports the engine.

Watch for the rubber motor mounts as you take it apart so you will know where they go when you put it back together.

I am sorry that I do not have a video on this style of blower to help you.

Please let me know how you are doing.

Sam A.
