Question about Craftsman Garden
I need a diagram for re installing a gas line on a craftsman weedwacker,
model. # 358.798441
This is an ongoing issue for users, and rightfully so. Small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then pushes any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Years ago on 2-stroke trimmers, primers were not even used,...you choked the carb with a slide lever and gravity let fuel enter the carb from above...a few pulls, a "pop"...slide it off of choke and away you went.
If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

The longer, (and sometimes smaller of the two), fuel line goes from the carburetor to the tank with the fuel filter attached to the end, inside the gas tank.The other line, ( sometimes larger), goes from the primer bulb to just inside the gas tank, about a 1/2 -1 inch inside with coupling attached to the end. Coupling keeps line from pulling out of tank.

I had to buy fuel lines last week.
I called the local sears parts store, and gave them the model number.
They had a rather generic bag with the correct diameter lines.
Just cut to the approximate length.
But now I have a problem: I didn't note which lines went where when I pulled the lines off. Could you tell me where does the line from the primer bulb go: top or bottom barb on the carb? Thanx.
