craftsman chainsaw service/shop manual

Have a craftsman chainsaw model 358.350481. Bought new 8 yrs ago. Has been a good, reliable saw, but now needs a little TLC.

I am looking for a shop/service/repair manual for it, if there is such an animal.

Please note that I have the original users/owners manual. That is not what I am looking for.

Being 8 yo, probably just time to clean/rekit the carb and install new fuel lines, i.e., if you've been faithful to always run fresh mix in it.
I've not found a service manual for this family of Poulan chainsaws, although I'm sure there's one out there somewhere.
They're pretty simple.
Check to see which carb manufacturer it is
If Walbro, the following two sites will get you about all there is to know

The following site if ZAMA:

Thanks GlenM. You were the only one who took the time to reply. I went to the Walbro website you listed, and the info was helpful.

I did need some different type of info, such as the gap between the ignition module and the flywheel(not in owners manual, and a blowup of the oiler mechanism.

Someone in another forum suggested www3.sears.com. I tried to go there, and got a "no such website". Anybody know about that?

The gap should be .010, I use a good business card to set gap, making sure card is between magneto and flywheel magnets.
