Question about Poulan 18" Wild Thing Chainsaw
Engine will not start. Was received at this repair facility with the top throttle shutter missing, and tne fuel line broken. A new carb was installed, with a new fuel line and new fuel filter. The engine cranked after about (3) pulls and ran at top speed and good idle after carb adjustments. It stopped and have not been able to start since. Ignition with in line testor +, compression app.118# after 3-4 pulls,piston and cylinder walls appear generally clean, piston rings appear free, the muffler has been flushed and cleaned. Your comments would be appreciated. John Friendswood, TX

If you have ignition, and you have 118 lbs of compression (this is on the low side) should be around 125-145 for this size engine. However, it did start and took carb adjustments, I would check the routing of the fuel lines and check the fuel filter. If you have spark, compression and the timing (make sure the key has not been sheared on the flywheel) the only other need is fuel supply.

It is running lean. There is an air leak somewhere allowing to much air into the cylinder or crankcase. Continuing to operate lean may cause failure. If fuel delivery lines have no pin holes or cracks probably time for some professional help (pressure tests). Remove clean and reinstall the muffler (carbon fouling can also cause this). If the saw cannot exhale, it cannot inhale. HTH

SOURCE: Hi, I just cleaned my
The fuel pick up or filter should be changed every year but if your saw will start and run good but just not idle then adjust the screw marked T counterclockwise slowly until chain starts to rotate without you depressing the throttle.At that point back it off about 1/16 of a turn until saw will idle but chain doesn't move.Thank you. P.S. If you want to you can go back to factory setting by turning H & L fully closed then open 1 to 1 1/4 turn and very slowly adjust for smoothest operation. Do not adjust H anymore then minimum off factory to avoid engine damage.
If you need further help I would suggest you have a trained tech.service it. Good luck.
