    I'm attempting a repair of a 25cc 2-cycle craftsman weedwacker without the benefit of a repair manual and am intersted in any info or sources of info to verify the correct alignment of parts.

    Well, Don't have a manual on this one but you can see the parts break-down at the link below. Just enter your model number.

    If you go to Sears and enter your #, you may get "some" help?

    A 358 is a Poulan/Weedeater

    Also, if you go to-
    http://www.m-and-d.com/parts.html
    Follow the parts diagrams links and then you can sort through all the Weedeaters and try to figure out which model you have.

    maybe, just maybe its a homeowner trying to repair something on his own rather then getting fleeced at the dealer or maybe one of us trying to learn how to repair tools that way they don't have go to the dealer and get fleeced.

    most homeowners don't need a $300 Stihl or echo to get their job done the $90 units from HD or sears work just fine...

    I am not saying take it to a dealer...I am saying they are throw aways, go buy another one. Or get something for 200 that will last.

    And another thing.. if you think a dealer is going to "fleece" you when you take it to them, then why should we give away help for free on here?

    Junk it and go buy another another Craftsman. I worked in a shop for nearly 10 years and we would not accept any "big box store" equipment. Most of it is just not cost effective to repair. At $50/hr the customer will not likely repair an item after an estimate that will run close to $100. More often than not you get exactly what you pay for. Buy a trimmer that has a carb and a recoil start that can be removed and repaired in a short amount of time
