How can I put my chain brake back on?

I just bought a 3416 Poulan chainsaw. Well after cutting fire wood all day, I wanted to clean it out. Well in the process of that I took out the chain brake. Any suggestions on how to put it back would be greatly appreciated...

Sadly, the 3816 is not designed for larger timber. 38cc is only for smaller limbs, As a general rule also the largest timber to cut should only be 2/3 of the length of the bar

What are the high and low carburetor settings on a poulan 3416 chainsaw?


are they two separate screws? one for fast, one for slow.for the slow setting, first start the saw then screw until motor runs smooth without chain moving....if to slow the motor will stop....for fast screw....rev motor flat out then adjust so it screams its head off so to speak....it will need all its power for cutting wood so don't think you are opening it up to much as its designed for it.

Idles fast, won't cut wood, stalls under load


Clean the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler if clogged. Check all fuel lines for condition--replace any with original rubber lines--not plastic. The carburetor sounds like it could use a thorough cleaning and re-kit. It's somewhat common for saws to leak some bar oil over a long period. Good luck!

I'm using a Poulan 3416 and it's simply not cutting my neighbor and I used it last weekend to cut up fallen trees but it doesn't cut at all now?


It may sound oversimplified but....is your chain sharp? Is the chain on backwards?

When cutting you should be getting nice big chips from the cut. If you are getting more "dust" than chips the chain is dull and needs to be resharpened.

There is no set "time" to sharpen a chain,but you will only get a few hours of cutting before the chain dulls. In soft wood like pine you can go longer. In hardwood like oak or locust you may get an hours worth of cutting. If the bar digs into the ground or hits a rock it's time to sharpen right then because the chain will be dull.

I always carry an extra chain or two just for emergencies like hitting a rock or some wire in a tree.

It starts and runs right for about five minutes, then it won't rev. to the highest rpm's. Will start after that but won't run fast enough to cut.It's a Poulan 3416----16" 34cc


Remove the muffler and clean out deposits from the spark arrestor screen. Make sure the intake air filter is clean. If these two items are good, then the 'H' carburetor adjustment may be too rich--turn clockwise somewhat until the engine runs at full speed, but 4-stroking slightly. The engine should smooth out and 2-stroke with even a light cutting load. Make sure the chain is being properly oiled while running. Hope this helps!

Poulan Pro 42cc Just Won't Cut It


The chain is directional, only cuts one way. If a new chain won't cut, it must be on backwards.

Poulan Wood Shark Chainsaw - wood smoking. Is chain on backwards?


I cannot tell you about a picture, but for one: chain direction, the bottom of the bar is where the cutting takes place, and therefore, looking at the chain, you will see, on the bottom, the antikick back link is sort of curved, and then the next part is the straight tooth. The highest part of this straight tooth is the sharp edge, and this high part should face towards the motor. The chain, on the bottom side of the bar, is pulled in towards the motor by the clutch/gear. That is your direction of travel.

As to cleaning the air filter, Hopefully you have access to compressed air, as in simply blowing off the dirt. You do not want to use liquid cleaner. Simply blow off any dirt, after pulling the filter away from the carburetor, of course. Then place it back in place.

It may be that your chain is real dull. The top edge of the high part of the flat tooth needs to be sharp. And the outside corner needs to come to a nice point. Remember, there is two cutting surfaces on each tooth, the top is cutting down into the wood, and also that outside sharp corner is openning the cut for the bar to pass through. Proper sharpening, if new to it, can be hard to grasp. Any chainsaw manual should show how to do a good job.
