Question and Answers

Q:

change from blower to vac and connect bag

A:

Thank you for your question.

  • I can understand wanting to change from blowing to vacuuming in the fall with all the leaves falling.

  • Take the large vacuum tube and connect it to the intake or bottom side of the blower/vac.

  • Release the tab and hinge open the door on the intake. There will be two locations for the hooks on the vacuum tube that hooks to the hinge pin from the spring loader door. Once you have the hooks in place pivot forward and lock into place.

  • On the blower port attach the bag spout and holder.

  • The shoulder strap should be used so the bag will fill up completely.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

can't get carburetor back in place 358797251 Craftsman Gas blower

A:

Carburetor mounting screws part number 530015849 are the correct screws. If you have the caburetor gasket installed between the carb and the block, and the air filter plate on other side of the carb, chock lever, spacer and washer installed as shown in the parts image, then I would suspect the old screws may have vibrated and broken off inside threaded holes prevent the screws from going in enough to tighten the carb up to the block. If the screws did not break, the threads inside the holes are likely stripped out.

Q:

1.9 cu in /32cc 2 cycle-175 mph /370 cfm GASOLINE BLOWER/VAC-MODEL NO.358-797251 - LOSS OF POWER-DOESN'T SEEM TO BLOW THE LEAVES "LIKE IT USE TO"-WHATS WRONG ?

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the blower. I refer to use champion spark plugs in all my outdoor power equipment. If the fuel mixture in the blower is older than 5 weeks old, it should be drained. Then refill with fresh fuel mix. If this does not help I suspect there is a problem with the fuel system. I recommend checking in the fuel tank first. When you look in the tank, you should see a fuel line with a white filter attached to the end. Then inspect the fuel line. If it is hard and brittle, it has to be replaced. Here is a video that shows how to replace the fuel line. The video shows replacing the lines on a trimmer but the steps are going to be the same once you access the fuel tank. If the fuel line is fine, I suspect the carburetor is to blame. The carburetor will have to be cleaned or replaced. Here is a video that show how to clean the carburetor. Before you remove the carburetor, make sure to note the fuel line and cable connections. This will save a lot of frustration later. The parts for the blower can be ordered from the following link. Parts for Craftsman blower

 

 

If this does not cure the problem, I recommend removing the muffler. Then check the operation. If the engine runs fine, you need to clean the screen in the muffler.

 

 

I hope this helpful. If you need further assistance, please reply below with more details.
