SOURCE: 2375 ''wild thing'' poulan saw hard starting after carb rebuild

Through trial and error on fairly new Poulin Pro, found that the usual 3-half turns for both high and low was too much (flooded) (Used to be good starting point on weed eaters years ago. So, turned both all the way in, and only backed out 1-full turn. (2-halves) Saw fired up perfectly, and ran wide open just fine. Try that.

SOURCE: Poulan Wild Thing and Wood Shark Saws try to run, but stall down.

They could be sucking gas from the base gasket, head gasket or the bearings. Also, Check your flywheel very wheel and your armuter, if either are rusty then they need some sand paper to help create spark. There are rebuild kits and they are cheap. I always tell my customers to fix there older machines cause the new ones are **** and they leak everywhere and if anything brakes they are REALLY expensive to repair. You can get a rebuild kit whole machine for about 65 dollars

SOURCE: chain keeps turning while in the idle position

There will be an idle (Low) speed adjustment screw somewhere on the saw (look in your manual). Adjusting this setting lower will prevent the chainsaw chain from turning in the idle throttle position. Basically you want to set it so the chain has just stopped moving... but you need to set this after the chainsaw has warmed up a little.

They are called "tamper proof" or "tamper resistant adjusters. Amazon has a pretty good set for a reasonable price. Search on Tamper Proof Tool. It's nice the have a set around as you never know what you will run into.

For the Poulan, go to eBay and search on "Poulan Craftsman Walbro carb adjusting tool". You will find what you need there. I hope this helps.

Poulan Pro 295 won't keep running.

pull the black dust cap on top there are three screws going down, the idle screw is on the left side (if you were holding the saw) near the top of the carb it has a spring around it. the 2 weird screws under that are the mixture screws hi and low rpm you really shouldn't mess with those unless your sure of what your doing. if that doesn't work there is a really small hole ( and I mean small) in the bottom of the carb for a diaphragm if that gets clogged it runs bad, also vibration can loosen the cylinder bolt turn the saw upside down and there are (or should be 4 bolts) make sure they are tight if one already rattled out take the one kitty corner to Lowe's or a hardware store and get a replacement.

Base adjust. on carb high and low needles on carb polen 42 18" thanks

The standard setting on needles is to screw them in all the way and then back them out 1 and a half turns.

You need to set the mixtures for the carburetor. You will find a Low and High adjustment screw. turn the low adjustment screw out. You will notice that the rpms should start increasing. keep turning it out until the rpms start to drop then turn it back in a quarter of a turn. You may need to readjust the idle speed so the chain doesn't turn during idle. Do the same for the high adjustment screw.
