Go to m-and-d.com then parts diagram then illustrated parts online then parts look up then select oem poulan then poulan then saw then look at list of models you will find 3400. Have worked on one or two of the 3400 and they seem to be a fairly good saw for home use.

1) Check the oil holes in the bar to make sure they are not plugged. The bar can be mounted either upside down, or right side up, so make sure to check both sides.
2) With the bar removed, start the saw and watch for oil to come out of the side of the case/body.
3) If no oil is coming out the side of the saw, inspect the oil pump worm gear and drive spring. The spring is driven by the chain sprocket/drum. The clutch will need to be removed to inspect.
clutch removal as follows
Outboard drums (drums on the outside of the clutch) are held on by a nut or e-clip.
Inboard drums are held on by the clutch which is threaded onto the crankshaft. And there is the challange.
***NOTE all chain saw clutches have LEFT hand threads, so, rightey loosey, lefty tightey. (just backwards from everything else)
*** NOTE #2: DO NOT USE AN IMPACT GUN
this will most certainly shear the flywheel key or damage the flywheel !!!!! (after 35 years, you can ask me how I know that, LOL)
1) Use a piston stop to hold piston from moving: THIS IS A MUST !!!
Ok, so you do not have one, let's make one.
a) remove the spark plug
b) insert a piece of recoil rope into the cylinder hole, leaving a tail to remove it by. (rope, large shoe string, anything that is soft, that is aprox 1/4 to 5/16 in diameter to place into the spark plug hole to help the piston to stop it's travel by filling up the empty space. Just make sure you can remove it later)
c) secure the saw (extra set of hands may be needed) and with a suitable wrench on the clutch center, rotate the clutch to the right until piston comes to a stop. With a hammer, tap the wrench to aid in rotation. This can be very difficult, and may take several taps.
d) after removed, inspect and grease the drum bearing before re-assemlby.
e) upon re-assembly of clutch, tighten by hand only, NO hammer required. The force of the chain will tighten the clutch.
f) remove the rope, and re-install the spark plug.

The lines should be connected to push fuel into the carburetor. The output (overflow) of the carb is routed back into the tank. So, two lines in the tank, one is an overflow (return) and the other is the suction. On the primer one line from the tank and the other to the carb. Connect so as to "push" fuel into the carb when the primer bulb is pushed.
