Remove all gas lines. remove screw mounting carb to block. Remove mechanical connections. Sears parts website shows you a blown up view of this product. This is also sold as a Troy Built. Normally a 3.5 hp B&S engine.

Want to know who makes the engine for Craftsman brush cutter #358795580. Sears does not have the gasket I need where can I get it #19115 I am in NY


Poulan probably made your engine, and it was probably made in Mexico. It says here that the part is non-returnable. If you want and have the old one intact, you can get a roll of normal gasket paper and trace and cut out your own. I make them all the time, and.....they don't leak. Auto parts stores sell the gasket paper and it is not expensive. Sears didn't say whether or not the gasket was in stock, just that it was not returnable. See number 25 on this diagram and parts list. Ebay is always selling Craftsman parts also.

I have a craftsman 32cc weedeater model 316791810. I am not sure how to replace the trim line. Is the line supposed to automatically length itself when the line breaks?


An auto feed line system will do just that and if too much line is released there is usually a cutter inside the edge of the plastic guard covering the string head. I use a Troy Built head on a 32 craftsman and I unscrew the bump knob ...twist and pull out the spring loaded spool....cut a lenth of line 6-8 feet or so....thread the two raw ends thru the two holes in the inner spool....pull them out until they are even with each other....then grasp each one and hold them side by side and wind them onto the spool in a clockwise manner. This is how I do the string head with a split boom that fits the 32cc Sears Power head (an older Troy Bilt).

I have Craftsman 17" Weedwacker and need fuel lines


Hey jncsurf, 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.
