I have a 1999 Sears Craftsman chainsaw ( model # 358 0080 )

Customer Question

I have a 1999 Sears Craftsman chainsaw ( model #(###) ###-####) and it starts but won't stay running. I put on a new carburator and put in all new fuel lines and it still won't stay running. The saw is in good shape and doesn't look like it has been used much.
I checked the compression which is 120. The saw was given to me and someone took all the fuel lines out , so I am not sure of the fuel line routing. Do you have a print out sheet of the carburator and fuel lines the way it is suppose to be or any other ibeas
of why this saw is doing this. The exhaust screen is clean .

Does it have a fuel primer?

With primer the fuel is pulled through the carburetor and exits through primer, back to the tank.
