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.

If motor is not turning it is possible that it is seized.up.
BTW there is a significant difference between not turning over and not starting.

I have a Ariens snowblower deluxe 30 which is a year old. Starts fine and will run. Unfortunatley it is running way to low. I have replace the gas with fresh gas ran it through completely


It is very possible the carbureator needs a cleaning. Moisture can corrode the inner parts of them if left all summer. I find that the fuel usually does not go bad over the summer. I always start my snowblower once a month over the summer and then have no problems when the snow flies again. There was a time when mine was losing power and quitting also. There is a screw on the bottom of my carbureator that needed adjusting. If you are lucky that may be all you need. By turning mine in and out a bit I found the spot where the gas was correct and it worked fine again.

What is the air gap between ignition coil and fly wheel on a poulan pro pp4218 avx?


For practical application you can just use a new business card or 3x5 recipe card. You don't want to use same card too many times though because thickens of card will change with use, and exposure to liquids. I don't remember right off hand the exact specs but I do know we have used this method for years.

Talon electric chainsaw has no power, changed the fuse etc...any ideas??


talon chain saws have two control switches before they will start. One is the trigger that you pull and the other is a button or lever that has to be held in at the same time. These two controls mean that you have to have both hands clear of the chain before it works.

Hi we have a Massey Ferguson Dyna 4 5465 and it was working this morning and then it died we started it up and it ran for about 1/2 a minute when we try starting it now we can hear the fuel pump runs for...


am i to assume its a diesel ,if so sounds like its out of fuel but i could be wrong as its been many years since i have worked on tractors and all the fancy electronic gizmo on modern vehicles can confuse me.Now firstly check the key as no doubt as its a modern one it has a immobilisor and if the head of key loses its chip inside the key head it will never start unlike the old ones that would run on paraffin diesel or petrol ,the later ones were diesel only but again providing they had fuel and oil with the rad topped up they ran 24/7 ,thats a point check the oil level if its low it may stop the engine from starting

L E D christmas lights stay on when shut off.


No it's not. Your LED Christmas lights are okay. Your surge protector is fine too although the switch on your protector is an SPST type - it is connected to one line of your AC outlet. When turned off, the line with the switch is physically cut, but the other line is still alive. Some LED circuits and TFL lights blink even when the switch is turned off, probably because one line of the AC power is still (a)live. If this worries you, just unplug the LED lights from the protector.
