Question about Poulan Garden
I have a Poulan 245a chain saw, its a 72 or 74 cc and is very strong motor. However, the engine is hard to start and cuts off after some work about 15 min of work. I cannot find a user guide for it. What could be the problem. I have replaced the carb and put a carb kit on it. I was told to check the exhaust port for blockage. My concern is the points and condenser. It does not have a primer bulb for the carb.

SOURCE: Just replaced fuel lines and
Line from fuel filter goes directly into the inlet of the carburetor and the line from the snap in bulb that is marked "in" attaches to the other outlet connector on the carb. Last is the long side of the bulb goes to the return on the gas tank. The snap in bulb sucks the gas but not directly from the filter hose, it does this through the carb as if it were trying to not only **** in the fuel but also removing the air trapped in the carb. You'll notice that the bulb has a **** side and a discharge side, and the **** side goes directly to the carb outlet connector. I tried to make this a clear as possible, and I hope it helps.
