Sounds like you need to pull out the spark plug and put some fuel directly into the cylinder to get it fired up.

I have a walbro carb on a craftsman chainsaw..Can you tell me which fittting on the carb (TOP RIGHT) OR (BOTTOM LEFT) gets the fuel line with the filter on it??


All chainsaw primers pull fuel from the carb, so the fuel inlet ( pipe with filter on the end ) goes to the connection nearest to the pump cover of the carb ( the alloy cover with a single central screw )

Craftsman chainsaw fuel line and fuel filter


go to sears and purchase the fuel filter and fuel line kit for the chainsaw. in that kit will have a hook that you fish through the outside of the tank to the inside, you attach the new fuel line after attaching the fuel line to the fuel filter, to the hook, then pull it through the hole. disconnect the hook from the fuel line, cut the small piece off where the hook made the hole and attach to the carburetor. finish by pushing in the fuel filter inside the fuel tank. the kit will also have more detailed instructions and possibly with illustrations. if sears doesnt have the kit, check with a lawnmower repair shop.

Seeing a lot of fuel line problems due to ethanol. Make sure your fuel lines and primer lines are in tact. If the fuel line has broken, you may also need to clean out the inlet screen in the carburetor which can also become clogged.

Need to replace all gas lines


  1. Empty the fuel tank on the chainsaw of any remaining fuel. Pull the cap from the tank and turn the unit upside down. Drain the fuel into an approved fuel container. If the fuel is old (more than about a year) dispose of it according to local regulations for hazardous materials. (It can be kept longer by adding a fuel stabilizer.)
  2. Pull the fuel line where it attaches to the carburetor using the end of the needle-nose pliers. The old fuel line may take some force to pull free from the metal tube.
  3. Push on the fuel line to feed it into the fuel tank. Hold the chain saw upside down. Shake the unit to get the fuel filter into the opening of the tank. Pull the filter free of the tank. Feed the remaining fuel line through the access hole at the bottom of the tank. Dispose of the filter and old fuel line in accordance with disposal regulations.
  4. Feed one end of the new fuel line into and through the bottom access hole of the fuel tank. Push approximately 6 to 8 inches into the tank. You can pull back any excess line later. Grab the end of the plastic line with the needle-nose pliers. Bring the line through the gas tank fill opening.
  5. Attach the new filter to the end of the new fuel line. Feed the filter back into the fuel tank. Pull any excess line from the tank. You will want approximately 3 to 4 inches of fuel line inside the tank.
  6. Route the new fuel line to the carburetor. Cut the line to length with the cutters on the needle-nose pliers. Attach the line to the metal tube.
  7. Fill the fuel tank with fresh gas-oil fuel for 2-stroke engines and start the chainsaw. It may take a few pulls to prime the new line with fuel.
  8. Some models come with a priming bulb. Make sure you press the priming bulb three to four times before trying to start. This will prime the gas lines and remove any excess air trapped in the lines.

Have a craftsman # 358.350880 saw will not accelerate and lacks power


Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Check for proper chain oiling by running the saw at speed for several moments with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

Routing runs from fuel tank to carburetor, (if equipped) through carburetor to primer bulb, bulb returns excess to fuel tank.
