I can't find a manual for this saw.
Does anyone know the sparkplug and its gap setting - or where I can look it up?

Quick Answer- Spark Plug = Champion RCJ-8Y, Spark Plug Gap = 0.025 inch

Tough One! I couldn't find a manual for the Craftsman chainsaw model #358.352690, but I did find several parts diagrams online at this Sears website:

Sears Parts Direct .

Your spark plug part number is listed in the engine parts diagram. Sometimes you can also find manuals at this website, but your saw is so old they didn't have a manual. I was able to identify the correct spark plug for your saw, and it is a Champion RCJ-8Y. Most packaging for spark plugs have cross reference material printed on the packaging, so you might find a compatible spark plug in another brand. I know you can find a compatible spark plug at Sears.

You know from the 3 digit prefix of the model number, 358, that the manufacturer of your Craftsman chainsaw is Poulan. If you go to the Poulan website and look at the FAQ webpage, it will tell you the correct spark plug gap is 0.025 inch or 0.6 mm. Poulan applies this spark plug gap specification to all their chainsaws. They don't apply it to any specific model. I have also looked at several Poulan and Craftsman owners manuals (All the craftsman chainsaw manuals with the 358 prefix are really Poulan manuals), and they all give the 0.025 inch spark plug gap specification. Here is the Poulan FAQ webpage:
