Did Remington make your Craftsman? Does it have the FM rewind with the spring loaded shoes and fiber washers? Check with a Stihl dealer, the early 08S and the 090's used the same system.

HA HA, I was just joking - it all depend on who made the Crapsman in question.

I've had that problem.  I oil them up.  Maybe some of that Rust Reaper stuff would work!!  It works well on them.  THen pull the rope a few times until they start springing out again.
