SOURCE: spark plug gap
hi kathy. this is an easy one. first of all you will need a spark plug gapping tool, about a dollar at any auto parts store. Your chain saw most likely calls for PLUG TYPE: Champion CJ6 SPARK PLUG GAP: 0.025 in. (0.63 mm).
Here is the website of a short video to show you exactly how to gap the spark plug. write back if you need any more info.

Spitting gas is not good. It's probably leaking there instead of going into the carburetor where it can fire the engine. Need to find that leak and change the hose it's running out of. You get gas to the carburetor by gravity and vacumn from the engine. With a broken hose you loose all gravity effects and vacumn that would pull the gas to the carburetor.
Homelites from the beginning of time have spilled mixed gas down over the cylinder head by the spark plug from the gas cap. Then you go out and cut massive amounts of wood and all the sawdust swirls around the head, sticks to the oily gas residue and sooner or later it builds up in the cooling fins surrounding the cylinder head. This causes the chainsaw to run hotter because it can't cool efficiently and the gas tank is right there close to the head and cylinder so it absorbs a lot of extra heat, so much so that i've seen the gas inside the tank literally boiling hot which forces it out of the gas cap vent and spills more oily gas mixture over the head to accummulate more sawdust and cause more overheating. Care should be taken not to overfill the gas tank. Keep the saw and cylinder head clean of buildup so it can run cooler and change gas tank caps often so that you have a clean vent incase you do build up pressure.

Will it start if you pull the plug and spray starting fluid in the chamber? if so then I'll bet you have a blown diaphragm in the carb or a plugged fuel filter or a bad gas line. hope this helps. Jeepfxr

The line at the back of the tank gets the filter (check it for plugging) and the one nearest the cap doesn't use a filter (it is the return line from the primer bulb). The filtered line goes directly to the carburetor inlet port and the outlet port allows fuel to be pulled through the carburetor and out to the primer port. Check and replace any fuel lines that are in poor condition. If the engine has been running with the intake filter missing, the interior of the carburetor may be full of debris. Remove, dismantle, and clean the carburetor interior. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for an excellent 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Will not start
That seems to imply that the check valves in the primer pump and in the fuel pump section of the carburetor are bad or the air pressure just forced by the valves. The line without the filter is the tank return line from the primer pump. The primer pump is supposed to pull fuel from the fuel filter into the carburetor flooding all spaces within it it, then passing out to the primer pump and from there, back into the tank. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel after several pumps? The first try may take longer because you forced all of the fuel out of the carburetor with the air pressure. Make sure all of the carburetor fasteners are tight. It's possible that you have injured the diaphragm in the carburetor lower chamber when you blew air into the line. Go to: www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting. Make sure the spark plug gap is set at 0.020". Hope some of this helps!
