Your saw is a Poulan. Try converting the cc to a model number. A 2.2cc Craftsman is often a Poulan model 2200. go to this link and find something that appears the same under (POULAN-WEED-EATER).

The IPL will help. Pay attention to the year there is a different area for older saws.
For a current saw Craftsman should have something available.

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, the output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill the bulb as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs to help with reassembly. HTH

SOURCE: I have Craftsman 36cc 16in Model-358-350461no oil to the bar.

We are prohibited from contacting you directly.
Oil System Plugged:
1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution.
• Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out.
• Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability).
• Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw).
• If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go.
• Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections.
• If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread).
• Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
3. If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL for the location).

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system, it is sketchy at best. Oiler components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly:

It appears to have an outboard clutch, this will be helpful;

R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by Drivelink.blogspot.com

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make certain the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

The above link will take you to www.ereplacementparts.com
They sell all of the parts for your saw. There is also an exploded diagram. I am not sure if it will help you, but it may.

The other place I would try is YouTube. There are many videos on chainsaws.
I hope this helps and god luck with your saw.

Digram of fuel lines for craftsman chainsaw model 358.350180


There are two lines inside the tank. The short line with no fuel filter on the end of it goes to the inlet, (suction) side of the primer bulb. The long line inside the tank, with the filter on the end goes directly to the fitting on the side of the carburetor. The line, inside the air box from the outlet side of the primer goes to the remaining fuel line fitting on the carburetor. (This is not my post)

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 diagram for fuel lines on craftsman chainsaw


There is two sizes of line. I see the large one goes to the large port on the primer button and then to the fuel tank. The small one goes from the primer button to the carb. The problem is there are two hose connections on the carb. I believe one is a vent, but I am not sure what one it is. I have a 36cc 2-cycle model 358.352161
