1 Answer

Poulan 2450 Woodmaster 2.3 ci eng.

I have a Poulan 2.3 ci eng. #2450 Woodmaster. It starts fine, and when I start to cut something it bogs down. Tried new air filter with no help.

    I have poulan 2450 I can get it to start and run only at high rpm's when I let off the throttle it bogs out and then is very difficult to restart seems like its running way to rich on the low end and ends up flooding itself out. The spark plug is soaked with gas and when I dry it off and put it back in it will fire on the first and second pull but then no more after that and then the plug is soaked again. I need some advice on adjusting the carburator. The air filter is clean and that screen in the exhaust is clean. I think the problem is with the carberator. Any suggestions or help?

Hi Guest,
My name is Dennis and I also have the model you are having difficulty with and I can only repeat the instructions from the owners manual (with personal comments) because they have always served me adequately I hope that will serve your needs.
IDLE ADJUSTMENTS:
There are three adjustment screws on the carburetor labeled
H (for High speed MIXTURE)
L (for low speed MIXTURE)
T (for idle SPEED SETTING)
They are located just above the primer bulb. If your saw floods so soon in the starting process the idle mixture setting can be set too rich and the speed may be set too slow. Remember the chain will not move when the idle speed is set correctly with a WARM ENGINE!
Adjust the idle speed to just below chain movement WITH A WARM ENGINE this is just below the activation RPM of the centrifugal clutch. Let the engine run at a higher speed than idle until it is warm -- 3 min -- you may have to keep goosing it until then.
Please don't exceed the limits of the plastic limiters when making adjustments.
If you haven't adjusted the mixture screws you may just have to adjust the idle speed and that can start my turning that screw all the way in to the stop and then back out 4-1/2 turns for a good place to start. FAST IDLE -- Adjust the speed until the engine runs with out the chain moveing. Adjust clockwise to increase speed. Cclockwise to decrease engine speed.
Accelerate the engine and if it stumbles and makes too much smoke it's too rich turn the LOW SPEED MIXTURE (in) clockwist in 1/16 a turn incriments NO MORE at a time because a twocycle needs to run at a setting foe a short time to realy prove the setting. dont run it wide open to warm it up but it should be at a fast idle. Nothing you do will be proven correct untill the engine is warm.
Good Luck
Glad to be of assistance - please rate the solution because I will learn from your rating. Thank you
Your IDLE MIXTURE may be too rich causing the engine to flood.

Poulan 16" saw, start fine, runs fine until it


A couple of ideas, it could be a fuel tank breather issue, when it starts to die just try loosening the fuel cap, if the saw picks up again you will need to change the breather, the only other thing i can think of is a bad ignition that is breaking down when hot, the only aswer to this is to replace the ignition unit

Two things that can cause this problem. 1. Your carburetor is not set properly and is not letting the engine get enough fuel under a load. 2. Your chain is binding when you put the chain bar down on the log. Make sure your front chain sproket is turning free and is not too sloppy.

It does happen they quit when hot. More often they just quit.

Either the spark arresting screen is clogged with carbon, or the carb is out of adjustment on the high speed jet.
