Craftsman bushwhacked hedge trimmer model 358795720. Can't get the cover of to replace the muffler

To get to the muffler, the carburetor will have to come off of the machine. Take the air filter cover off and remove the air filter. You will see 2 screws in the base of the filter cover. Take those screws out and this will allow the carburetor to drop off of the engine. You can just let the carburetor hang from the hoses and cable for the time being.

On top of the engine you will see 4 screws; remove them. On the front of the engine (below the spark plug) there is a screw that must be removed. Also, the spark plug will need to come out. The engine shroud should not lift off the engine. Around where the 4 screws come through the shroud, there is an "o" ring, make sure to not lose it.

You should now be able to access the muffler to remove the old one and put the new one in place. Once it's in place, put the "O" ring back and seat the engine shroud. Then put all the screws back in place. Then attach the carburetor back to the side of the engine.

How do you get the battery out of a craftsman rear engine mower? what all do you have to take off? it's a model 247.25000 thirty inch cut.

Accessing the battery in this model is different from most mowers. To access the batter you have to remove the seat first, then remove the knobs on the levers that go through the fender, next, remove the two screws in the rear cover.. After you have theses removed, take the screws out that secure the fender to the mower. it should have 4 to 6 screws located under where the seat would be. then lift the fender off the mower. the battery is on the left side. just remove the cables and the battery hold down. then lift the battery out of the mower. to install the new battery just reverse these steps.

My craftsman lawn mower flywheel broke how do i fix it?

With the flywheel key broken you need to remove the engine cover first. This may involve removing the fuel tank as well. There should be a nut on top of the flywheel that needs to be removed. After this is off the keyway is exposed. Replace it and replace the parts in reverse order.

How to remove gas tank from toro 20016

Your Toro model 20016 came equipped with a Tecumseh engine. To remove the fuel tank, follow these steps:

1. Remove the fuel hose from the tank and drain any remaining gasoline into a container. If the gasoline is still good (fresh, clear) then save and reuse it. If the gas is not good (contaminated with water, old) then dispose of the fuel properly.

2.. Remove the upper red plastic engine cover. There are 4 screws with 1/4" hex heads holding the cover on. You will have to temporarily remove the oil cap to allow clearance.

3. The tank is held on with 2 screws and 2 clips. The screws will be obvious and on top. (some models the screws are the same as the cover screws). If necessary, remove the 2 screws. Tilt the tank away from the engine and pull upward. This will release the clips and allow the tank to be removed.

4. Reinstall in the reverse order.

Good luck!

Craftman push mower wont pull rope out

You would have to remove the engine cover, then unbolt the few screws that hold the starter/recoil unit above the flywheel. Then remove it and see exactly what the problem is. This is a fairly easy process and things are much clearer with the plastic covers out of the way.

My pull cord on my craftsman mower broke and I bought a new cord but cant get the pulley cover off to replace it, how do you do it?

With all the side screws removed it should come right off. There will be a little resistance, but that's normal.

Need to remove the starter on a Yard Machine 32hoe253869069

What kind of engine is on the mower? If its a briggs and stratton engine generally the starter is on the right side. The gear is covered with a plastic cover held on with a very small screw on one side and the other slides into the engine cover. The starter should be held on with two bolts behind the gear on top. They can be a pain to remove ( kind of a tight area) . the only bolts holding it on should be the two at the top of the starter/
