Turn the carb adjustment screws all the way in and then turn them 1 full turn out and try that. If it starts it will probably require some fine tuning or some tweaking to get it to start. I also suggest you clean and kit the carb just to you know it has a good diaphragm and no clogs

SOURCE: disassembly of poulan woodshark model p3314wsa to

This is an IPL for a Poulan P3314 (may not be your saw), It seems there are 2 different size hoses, I suggest you disturb only what is necessary, take a digital photo, then a small sample of both sizes to a local saw outlet. 12" of both sizes should be ample, ask for his guidance before you order.

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best; components are listed but may be on different illustrations.

Many also find this helpful:

If not your saw try here (there are 3 "P3314WSA"s available):
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

The IPL can be used as a disassembly guide too, although you should not need disassembly beyond removing a cover or 2. Good luck with your project If I can be of more help you can reply below. HTH

My poulan woodshark model # p3314wsa bogs when I start to cut how do I fix it runs fine when not cutting

Remove the muffler, and check the spark arrestor to see if its clogged with Carbon. Clean it by either wire brushing the carbon, or heat the spark arrestor with a propane bottle torch, and the carbon will burn off.

Poulan chainsaw 35cc wont start. finish over hauling. new piston and compression ring. and already clean carb. it wont just start.

are you sure you have spark? check that first then check that the mixture screws are set right. you say the carb is cleaned. did you put a kit in it or just take it apart and clean it reusing the old diaphragm?

My Poulan Woodshark 14" type 2 (-2 on serial

Fuelleaking from the cap will not stop it running, 40-1 with good quaility two stroke oil shoule be fine, if there is a good spark and fuel at the plug, you need to check that the piston has not picked up, the hottest part of the engine is the exhaust side, so remove the muffler, and take a look at the piston skirt throught the open exhaust port, any signs of scuffing and it will need to come apart to check the damage.

I have a 14" Woodshark Poulan chainsaw. I put in

Poulan Chainsaws are pretty well all powered by two stroke engines. My best guess is that you have the fuel mixture incorrect (it should be a 1:40 ratio of oil to gas). if the fuel mixture is not the problem then your choke is messed up. If you haven't tried already try and find the sweet spot in the choke where it will run.

My 1980 ski doo citation has good spart and great compression and is getting fuel but still will not run it wont even fire even with starting fluid i think its timing is messed up so how would i fix this

The problem may or may not be timing. You say it's getting good spark but is it great? if the compression is as good as you say and your spark isn't strong it can be put out by strong comp. if it is timing i would get shop manuel for it. i can't find a micro phish on it so i'm not really sure where to tell you to start.
