SOURCE: Chainsaw pull cord won't pull to start

Simply check to see if motor is locked is to remove spark plug and try to pull start. If motor turns, then he may have gotten gas in cylinder and created hydraulic lock. If moto does not turn, it is just a few screws more to take side cover off and see if rope caught in pully. In fact, you may want to take side cover off first, and make sure rope pulls out of housing, and self winds, like it should. At hat point, he can simple turn flywheel by hand to see if motor is locked up.

If the motor is locked up, you can put small amount of motor oil, (half a tea spoon) into spark plug hole, let it sit half an hour or so, and then try to work the flywheel back and forth to break it free. This condition may have been caused by running straight gas, not mixed. And, even if motor frees up, it may still need to go in for repair.

We have a couple of Poulin Pros at this saw mill where I work, and have had the piston lock up more than once, from guys dumping in straight gas. Sometimes we'ra able to free up piston, and make saw run again. And sometimes we end up tearing it down and repairing piston ring. Good Luck

Determine if the warranty is active first. Most warranties are effective for 1 to 5 years. If yes return it to where it was purchased or find an authorized repair facility. A written diagnosis by a good independent saw shop ($10-20) might be a good idea at this point. It is difficult to argue repair charges with an authorized repair facility without some documentation in your favor.
1. Remove the starter housing. Does the starter operate smoothly? If yes, reinstall the cover and continue with 2, if no repair starter.
2. Is the saw equipped with a decompression valve? Yes continue, no proceed with 3.
· Leave the ignition off, set the valve and pull the starter.
· Pull gently to release the valve. Is there a difference in the effort required? If yes continue with 3, if no repair or replace the decompression valve.
3. Was this saw perhaps operated without oil mixed with the fuel?
· Remove the spark plug wire and plug.
· Remove the muffler, hold a light at the plug hole and inspect the cylinder through the exhaust port. Is it smooth and shiny or does it appear speckled with dull gray spots or smears?
· Pull the starter slowly, inspect the piston as it rises and falls. Is it a dull gray without scratches and gouges?
· Hold the light at the exhaust port and inspect the cylinder, above the exhaust port, through the spark plug hole. Is it shiny and smooth or speckled with gray spots or smears?
Any spots or smears on the cylinder or deep scratches and gouges in the piston indicate the saw was operated in a lean condition. Repair of this on a home owner quality saw often exceeds replacement cost. A repair estimate by the independent saw shop should be considered.
4. The final likely possibility is the saw has jumped timing. This problem or any not discussed is usually beyond the ability of the operator to repair. Please take it to a good local saw seller/mechanic for a written diagnosis before authorizing any repair. HTH

SOURCE: i need to install a new spring for the pull start

Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool. HTH

I have a Poulan PRO LINK PP 335 and the pull rope is only coming out about 8 inches. It's stuck...what should I do?


Remove the starter and pull the cord, if the cord still only comes out so far it is either the cord is too short ( replace the cord ) or the rewind spring is coil bound ( release some of the tention )

Jammed pull cord on Poulan P4018 chainsaw!


There maybe a split pin holding the cover down over the spindle! Not too sure, but possible. Could be pushed down the centre, just a case of having a good look. Only really worked with Hurqvarna's and Makita's. Hope it helps. Good Luck

What type of chain does a 18" poulan wildthing use?


It depends on the what the operator wants to use.
Oregon Bar & Chain Selector
http://www.oregonchain.com/commonpgm/Selguide_Selctmfg.asp?BusId=OCS&SellReg=USA&LangId=ENG&ShowRem=Y&ShowAnsi=Y&ShowQuality=Y&ShowCombo=Y&usertype=OCC
A low kickback chain is the only one offered by Oregon. A local chainsaw shop can give you some more aggressive chain. Take your old chain with you to use as a template. HTH
