This pic is very helpful. As to which is IN and which is OUT on the carb (you don't think I noticed that before I got the lines mixed up, did you? ha), I found another u-tube video that shows how to just figure that out by trial and error. I added it as a link below. Thanks for your expert help, Dave.

What is the fuel line routing for a Craftsman chainsaw model 358.351142?

My 358 382180 craftsman has the same fuel line routing. One of the things that came out of the fuel tank when I took all the parts off is a small "duck bill" check valve. I cannot see how this is connected into the system. Do you know? It looks like the one from the oil tank, so was it just in the wrong spot?

Fuel line for Craftsman chainsaw

Thank you for your question.

I have checked the model number you have submitted. This saw has a fuel return line back to the fuel tank. I recommend putting a small amount of fuel in the tank then plug the one hole with your finger. Then tip the saw in every direction to see if any fuel leaks out. Please make sure to use extreme caution when doing this. This should help pin point the return whole in the tank. I found a video on YouTube video that shows the locations of the fuel line. Please click on this link to view the

video

. The connector is used to connect the fuel line from the tank to out side of the tank. I have provided you with an image below showing this.

Please reply below with more details if you need further assistance.

Craftsman Model #358.795590 Weedwacker Fuel Line Routing.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry we do not have fuel line diagrams for this but I will try to help.

If you have one large fuel line and one smaller, it eliminates some chance for error. If you have 2, small fuel lines to the carburetor connect them and start the engine. Reversing the fuel lines will not prevent the engine from starting. If you have them connected backwards, the engine will start and die. Reverse them and you will be correct.

The routing of the fuel lines vary from model to model. Keep in mind that the primer bulb circulates fuel from the tank, through the carburetor, and back into the fuel tank. One line goes from the fuel tank to the carburetor. One line goes from the fuel tank to the primer bulb, from the primer bulb to the carburetor, and back to the fuel tank.

Be careful to not put a fuel line too near a hot place on the engine. If the gas is overheated it will vapor lock and stop fuel flow. Be aware of anything that could rub or vibrate against a fuel line and cause a leak.

I have added a sketch of how the fuel lines should be connected.

I have also found a video that I think might be helpful. Please click

fuel line routing 358356280 Craftsman Chain saw

Dawn,

I am sorry you are having a problem with the chainsaw. I looked up the model number you submitted. This mode saw has a fuel tank vent and one fuel line going to the carburetor. I found a video that shows how to replace the fuel line on this model. Just click on the link below to watch the video. The other hole in the tank is the fuel tank vent. The vent is made up of a few different parts. The image below shows the order and how they fit together. Just click on the image to enlarge it. The line for the vent does not have to be very long. It just needs to be long enough that you can pull the line in to the tank and connect the vent fitting and the check valve. Once they are connected, you can pull the line back into the tank so that the vent fitting is against the top side of the tank. Then cut the excess line off and connect the vent plug to the end of the vent line.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Fuel routing for chainsaw

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the chainsaw. We do not have any written instructions for replacing the fuel line on chainsaws but I will try to help you. First, remove the air filter cover and the air filter. Then draw a diagram of how the fuel line is routed. I have also provided you with an image below showing the fuel line circuit. Then remove the all of the old fuel lines from the saw. When you are ready to reinstall the line cut one end so that it is tapered about an inch up. This will give you something to stick into the hole of the tank. Once in the hole reach into the tank with long forceps and grab the line and pull it through. Once you have it pulled in cut the pointed end off and install the filter. The line should be long enough so the fuel filter is on the bottom of the fuel tank. Then do the same for the return line. The only difference is the return line only has to be sticking in the tank about a half an inch.

I have found a few videos that I think might help you. Please click here to watch the first
