That fuel/oil mix ratio should be 32to1 or 32 ounces gasoline to 1 ounce oil. You will have to make up a new mix and probably clean the fuel system and the spark plug before it will start.

My craftsman weedwacker 27cc curved shaft wont start and cant figure it out


I need to ask. Did you leave fuel mix in it for a long time? If so then the carburetor will need to be cleaned with a special cleaner. and not the spray can stuff.

Primer bulb on my craftsman leaf blower #358797342 wont prime


Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.May need to clean or replace carburetor.

Your adjustments to the carburetor may make it worse.
Plus if the fuel mixture is over 30 old, I would replace it.
Manufacturers have told us this year any gas over 30 days old is considered bad gas and needs to be replaced. I would try some fresh gas(from the station) and some new 2 cycle oil at 40:1 Ratio(3.2 ozs 2 cycle oil to 1 gal of gas).
Good day.

NOT GETTING GAS ON SEARS BLOWER


I have a craftsman 25cc blower. It is not getting fuel in the cylinder. I replaced gaskets and even the carb, no luck. When i took off the intake to replace the gasket, i pulled the start line and noticed the piston does not drop far enough to allow fuel in the cylinder.
