Keep whistling past the graveyard. It’s got a ZAMA C1 carb, they all get leaky check valves after a while. But don’t worry, you can buy a new Chinese carb off eBay for a couple of $. I put one on my dad’s Stihl and now it works fine again.Well yeah i'm a fanboy of a product that doesn't give me grief, wouldn't anyone be one? Nothing more frustrating than trying to start a chainsaw that wont start or the gas cap is so tight that you need a tool to open it or chains popping off. I don't have those issues. Not a single one.
Somehow I don’t think we are talking about the same saws... have to grab a pic of mine, maybe tomorrow.I have that same craftsman 55cc chainsaw and it sucks.... Doesn't run worth a crap even with new carb and fuel lines. I gave up on that POS. The "incredi-pull" will fawk your arm up if you aren't ready for the weird spring they use....
Mine is Model 358.356332 and there’s nothing about saving the planet anywhere on it. The bar did say Oregon, but that is long gone, lolIt depends on the Craftsman model with that engine. Some were good and some were crap. I think the problems started coming about when they started putting “save the planet” stuff on them.
