Question about Craftsman Blower Attachment

1 Answer

Craftsman 2 cycle blower stalls.

CRAFTSMAN 2 cycle gasoline powered blower / vac Model # 358.794740. This blower starts up reliably and will idle - however when swithched to the "run" position the engine will not accelerate and stalls. It will restart - but stalls when the throttle trigger is pulled. I have cleaned the air filter, installed a new spark plug and a new fuel line filter. What can I do to fix this?

Hello,

Most Probably the problem lies in the adjustment of the carburettor. There are two needles in the carb one for lowend adjustment and one for high end adjustment. Your lowend adjustment seems fine. The highend needle needs to be adjusted. Following are some very detailed procedures for adjusting these types of carbs

If your machine has a carb other than a "Walbro" dont worry the procedures are same. I am sure if your engine has not completed its life span this will solve your problem.

I have a Craftsman model 358.797920 32cc blower want to know the mixture of gas per twocycle oil?


Most of these mix at 50 to 1. 500ml of oil to 5 gallons of gasoline should do it. If you don't feel comfortable with this mixture try 40 to 1.

Someone just gave me a Craftsman 32cc blower without the manual. What fuel does this use?


IF it says 4 CYCLE then it uses regular gas.(87-89 octane unleaded) Another sign to prove it's 4 cycle it should have a crankcase you keep filled with oil.

You need to play with the timing adjustment, either on the spark plug, or the gap between the contact and the magneto.
That'll do it ;)

After you do the above, try to clean out the fuel line. It may only be letting in a small amount no matter the throttle control.
