The lines are usually a tight fit in the fuel tank. This prevents leaks. They must be pulled out of the tank (one at a time) then cut the new lines end in a "v" pattern, this will allow you to push the new line through the tank. Long needle nose pliers are needed too.

The 3 things needed for an engine to run:
1. Compression (Cylinder, Piston, rings, gaskets)
2. Ignition (Spark plug, ignition module/coil)
3. Fuel (Fuel lines, Carburetor, gaskets, bad fuel)

More than Likely I would start by checking fuel related since that is usually the biggest offender (fuel lines broken/dry rotted, bad carb.)

First off Husqvarna does not make Craftsman chainsaws. Chainsaws are very high compression usually 125 to 150 lbs. pulling the rope slowly will make it very hard to pull. Short fast pulls are best, this allow the flywheel to build momentum to get it past the compression portion of the piston trvavel.

Never heard of a "muffler safety shut off". The chain brake handle sits above the muffler, could this be the safety part you are looking for?

Fuel, Chain saws are the most pickiest when it comes to fuel, I normally buy the Premixed Fuel already made for me at lowes they have a 40:1 and a 50:1 ratio mixes. I would try that.

adjust with .020 to .025 that should work for you

1. The kickback brake, if equipped, was triggered to stop the chain.
2. The chain is jammed with saw dust/debris (it doesn't take much)
3. the bar sprocket is damaged.
4. The chain guide teeth are damaged and not sliding through the bar guide groove smoothly
5. The chain is adjusted too tightly.
6. You are out of bar oil and friction has stopped it/damaged the bar and/or chain
7. The motor sprocket clutch is damaged.

That should cover all of the basics to look over.

Your best solution is to tip the engine up-side-down and shake the object out of the plug hole. You really don't want to pull the crank and piston which has rings, that will need to be properly reinstalled with a ring compression tool, as well as the crank and connecting rod bearings. Big job.

Did you set the carb up after you installed the carb kit?

tighten the two air screws to just tight then slacken them to one and a half turns start the engine and adjust the low screw until tick over then open the throttle to full and adjust the high screw if it cuts out take the high screw to one turn and try that then adjust from there

There is no fixed carburetor setting on these engines, just two screws to adjust low-end and high-end operation. Special tool may be required, there are about a half-dozen screw head standards. Check eBay for tool. Get the engine to run and idle fast (idle adjust) so it doesn't stall, adjust low-end screw so that engine doesn't hesitate or sputter when accelerated. Adjust high-end screw to run fast and smooth on full throtle. Readjust idle to normal.
