Question about Poulan Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin
The ignition unit is a small assemby fixed to the side of the cylinder with two screws, there is more than one unit type fitted to this model so i cannot give you the part no, most of the units will have the part no. on them, remove the top cover held with three screws, now remove the starter held with four screws, you will now see the ignition unit, pull the cap off from the spark plug, remove the eart cut out wire from the terminal on the unit, now remove the two screws holding the unit to the cylinder, once the unit is of check the top for the part no. check the web for a new unit, refit the new unit too the cylinder, use a feelr gauge to set the 0.3mm gap between the flywheel magnets and the ignition unit core, re connect the cut out wire. Before doing all of this i should have said you need to give the engine a good crank over to check for a spark with the old unit with the cut out wire removed.

SOURCE: Poulan saw will not start
This is not really a solution.... I can't post a comment. I think you know where I was going with the flywheel thing - whether or not the timing is right. I thought you'd pulled the flywheel yourself, and sorry, I'm not sure how to pull it. I'm assuming this is a 2 stroke motor... you might want to just check that the piston is near top dead center when the magnet on the flywheel hits the coil..... you can stick a pencil or anything long through the spark plug hole to give you an indication if the piston is at the top of the cylinder or not. Let me know how it goes!
