A link to a PDF OM for your saw follows.
A link to an IPL (exploded parts list) follows:
I think the Poulan equivalent saw is a "PP200". The likely problem is the clutch faces are abraded away (engine print-item 19).
CM Small Engines have a matching part number (530069193) in stock but it it identified as a clutch washer (530069197), I think it indeed the clutch mechanism pictured and suggest you call them.
You might try cleaning the clutch faces as well.

1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make certain the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
3. Most (99.9%) clutches have left hand threads (tighten it to loosen it). If a finger nail held in the thread and rotated clockwise comes off the shaft it is a left hand thread. If it pinches against the clutch it is a right hand thread.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

First thing is make sure chain brake is not engaged is so equipped. Next make sure that chain tensensioner is not to tight to allow chain to rotate. I wouuld remove bar and chain from saw and spray both several times with WD-40 and work chain link by link until they all move freely.Clean and lube guide channel on bar and make sure that bar is not dented or badly rusted.If all else fails replace bar and chain. Good luck and thank you.
