SOURCE: The chain is not moving on Poulan 4018 Wild Thing

I think you are saying the centrifugal clutch does not engage. It should not at idle. Did you rev it up a little and it still not engage? There is a clutch face on sprung weights that should expand and turn the clutch drum above idle. Please see the “Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly” detail for clutch illustrations.

A 2375 has an outboard clutch (the chain is between the engine and clutch drum).

Use this as a guide to remove the clutch and inspect the parts:

  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,
  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 starter cord or nylon rope be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure 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. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).

A 4018 has an inboard clutch (only the drive sprocket extends into the clutch cover). Do this first then use the outboard procedure to remove the remaining clutch pieces.

The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.

The dash number of your serial number is the type.

SOURCE: Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin: need gap for magneto adj....

Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.


If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

SOURCE: Describe your 18" Wild Thing

Check your chain tensioner. It is a little metal tab on a screw inside of the cover. If it is missing the tab that sticks out, you need a new one.
You can't really just put any chain on it with more teeth. You have to make sure you have a matching bar to go with it. The good news is, most of the big box hardware stores have "easy match" bars and chains. This will be sure you don't screw up and get the wrong chain for the wrong bar. Be warned though, running anything longer than the factory chain will likely decrease performance. The saws aren't really meant for heavy logging.

Need spark plug gap


I've never heard of the saw but it is probably a McCullock derivative. Try either 0.5mm or 30 thou (of an inch). It won't be far out and should get you out of trouble.

I have a wild thing. the rope pull starter is very hard to pull. when i take the spark plug out it is easy to pull. the saw was not used for about 4 years until yesterday. it ran for about 45 minutes fine....


one piston ring has expanded now having no or a very fine gap increasing the compression ratio causing this to happen. When the spark plug is removed it is very easy to pull on the cord in any means. A inspection is due of this engine or a new chain saw is needed
