Chain saw trigger

Does anyone know the exact way that a trigger/lock out assembly with spring attaches?

    My trigger locked up and I took the trigger/lookout from the chassis of the chain saw to check the spring to see if the spring had become misaligned or broken, looks like the spring is good but is not on the trigger or lock out. how does this attach?

Need to replace trigger lock. It appears that I will need to tear down the saw down.

Hi Bob:
Looks like you've got a nice little "rainy day" project.
Chain saws are notoriously friendly to work on.
I'd start by taking the bar, chain, and associated plates off, then giving it a really good clean. Solvent and compressed air do a great job.
- next step is to remove air filter cover so you can see the carb.
- follow the linkage back to where it disappears into the trigger assembly in the handle.
- a couple of screws will split the handle and reveal the trigger and lock.
Excellent project!

Poulan Pro PP5020AV pull cord won't retract

You need to wind the spring back in a coil at a time, it is not easy if you have never done one, order a new spring, this will come pre wound in a cassette and is an easy fit.

The choke on a Poulan Chain Saw that I just bought will not stay out to start it.

There are two types of choke systems, the basic choke has a ball and spring in the carb body which locks the choke either in or out, the other type is connected to the half throttle position, once pulled out it stays out, however if you lift the throttle trigger it will go back in on its own, queation, are you holding the throttle trigger whilst trying to start it, if so this is why it will not stay out, if this is not the case, pull the choke out with a little more force, it may be just not coming out enought to lock.

Replace starter rope spring part no 545008013 on the poulan p3416 chain saw. How to get the spring coil seated in the housing, and then get the starter rope part on top of it.

Hook the spring at the inner mount, then wind the spring CCW until the spool assembly can be attached to the outer spring, then continue to wind the spool until the spring is about half-tight or so. It must be able to wind about three or four turns more without becoming 'bound' which would lock the spool and not permit return of the cord. When the spring is wound, wedge it so that the cord can be attached, the work the cord around the spool so that the outer end will only project beyond the cord port a little way. Pull the cord out to make sure that the spring doesn't bind at full extension, the apply locking pliers to the cord to be able to attach the handle. Melt the cord ends to prevent the knots from pulling out. Hope this helps!
