Chain saw fuel filter and fuel lines

I have a Craftsman model 380.350380 chain saw. It wouldn't start. When I read the manual, it suggested replacing the fuel filter. I have not done this in 10 years. I emptied the fuel tank and the fuel filter fell out. I can't find any fuel lines inside the tank, so I have no idea how to replace it. I talked to the Sears parts people and they recommended ordering the small filter line, the large filter line and a new filter. I'm not going to order the parts if I have no clue how to install them. The manual and the on-line advice just say remove the fuel filter and replace it-- no diagram. Do I need to find a small child who can reach into the fuel tank?
Recommended parts were 530069216, 530069247, 530095646 Are these the right parts? Do they come with instructions and diagrams?

I can understand how important it is to have all of your equipment working properly, especially when you need to use it. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found two links that will provide some information on the issue. One is a set of instructions for the chainsaw, and the other contains an image of the diagram. I hope these links will help.
