    I am working on a craftsman chainsaw model 358.356331 for a friend of mine. When he brought it to me the gas lines were missing. They had crumbled and he had removed what was left of them so I have no idea how they were routed. My question is, does this particular model have what they call an impulse line coming from the motor going to the carb?

    you can check there for parts diagram, just type in model #.
    Some saws have an impulse port, don't use separate line.
    If saw has prime bulb it probably has supply & return fuel line & line from
    bulb to carburetor.

    Rebadged Poulan 3350

    The part #'s on diagram are Poulan. I googled the cylinder #,
    it also showed as Poulan (3350). You should be able to get fuel line &
    filter @ a local saw shop. One of my local NAPA stores has a good
    selection of line in rolls. I can buy it locally <$2/ft.

    I'm going to try that: Check the part# to see who made Craftsman Chainsaw #917.351270

    Thanks for the mention.


    Well I found the part # but haven't found the maker.

    Roper (AYP)

    917 appears to be Roper (AYP).

    Roper Industries went out of business in the 1980s.

    I used to own a similar looking Sears Craftsman/Roper 3.7 (Made in the early 1970s). I also owned a newer Sears Craftsman/Poulan 3700 (Made 20 years later in the early 1990s).

    I ran 40:1 gas/oil mix in both saws and experienced no problems.

    Today's 2 cycle, air-cooled oil is far, far superior to the oils available in the early 1970s.

    Yep, Roper is in business but they don't know anything about chainsaws, If you want kitchen equipment you are in.

    Nope! Roper appliances is a completely different company. The Roper company that made Craftsman chainsaws for Sears went out-of-business and vanished.

    Well Sir, I didn't know that. I did get some information from about the mix a fellow is using on old machines, On the thread "Craftsman Ranger". I appreciate you guys helping me hunt things down. Richard
