HI,

You need a long narrow 20T tork wrench to remove the clutch bell.Most stores that sell tools should have them. You stick the wrench down the opening of the clutch bell (where the shaft normally goes), hold the flywheel so it doesn't turn (a screwdriver will work) and then unscrew the screw that holds the clutch bell on.

  • Hole in the end of the clutch housing where the cable slides in has a # 20 torx screw in there.
  • Pull the spark plug, stuff some rewind starter rope in the plug hole, use a water pump pliers and turn off the clutch plate(s). NOTE: curved shaft trimmer will be a standard right-hand thread, straight shaft will be a left-hand thread.

My craftsman pull cord broke on my weedwacker


Remove the tube that holds the flex drive from the end of the crankshaft. Lossen and remove the front cover. Remove the throttle cable from the carb. Remove the kill switch wire from the coil module. Remove clutch housing. Remove clutch, Remove flywheel. The recoil unit mates with the bottom of the flywheel and all the aforementioned parts are on the front side of the engine's crankshaft. Once you get the recoil unit off, you remove the old cord and turn the unit several times to "preload" tension on it. Insert the new cord into the guide holes and tie knots to lock it in place. The pull handle must be attatched too or when you let the recoil draw in the new rope, it will keep going and all tension will be lost. Reassemble all the above and good luck

How do you remove the clutch drum assembly for model #316.791890


Your clutch drum is held on with a Torx head screw which is screwed into the end of the crankshaft. To lock the engine up so crank won't turn, remove the spark plug, rotate the engine so the piston is down and put some clean pull rope or otherwise soft material in cylinder. ...make sure it is something that won't hang up in the ports on the sides. Then when you rotate the crank, it will compress the rope or soft material, locking up the engine to facilitate removal of the Torx screw, The screw will come loose but will probably not come all the way out...that's just the way they made it.

My Brushwacker has a broken pull start rope (model 358.795800). I figure that it shouldn't be too hard to repair it, but I would like to find a manual for repair.


Good luck on finding a manual. You can get the exploded parts drawing off of the sears parts website! I have a 32cc model 358.791580 and the pull rope broke. The pull rope assembly is located inside of the motor housing. I am having trouble removing the clutch assembly since there is no key way or screw holding it to the shaft. Does anyone know if it is threaded on?
