Leaf Blower

I have a Craftsman leaf blower that doesn't want to start.
There is a nice blue spark at the plug and the plug is wet
with fuel. Next step is to check compression.
can someone provde the correct compression number?

90 psi or better is what you'll want to see. Check the cylinder bolts, they come loose often and cause problems.

Gas Line Layout or Diagram for Craftsman Leaf Blower 358-797770

Can anyone lead me to a diagram that would show the gas line are connected on my leaf blower Craftsman 358-797770. The original line have dried up and broken. I do not know were the lines connect to. There were two fittings in the fuel tank along with the fuel filter. One is a small gray fitting that has a small star washer or retainer on it. The other is like a connector that you would connect two hoses together.
The only hose that is currently connected is two line coming from the carburetor.
Any help would be helpful.

If there are remnants of the lines, you can see that they are 2 different sizes. The small line goes from the suction side of the carb to the tank, and hangs down in the tank far enough to reach the bottom in any position with the fuel filter on it. The larger line goes from the return side of the carb to the tank, just far enough into the tank to keep it in place.
