Sounds like you are starving for fuel. This can be a clogged fuel filter (old gas around the outside of it), a cracked fuel line, or the diaphragms in the carburetor need replaced. Make sure you the fuel filter is clean. Clean it off with some gumout spray. If your fuel lines are not cracked, then I would suggest a new diaphragm kit in the carburetor. Not sure of your mechanical abilities, so I don't know how hard or easy that would be for you to do.

Can i get a .325 sprocked for this saw

According to this list of sprockets, the Wild Thing has a 0.3937 drive shaft and they do list 0.325 sprockets with that diameter shaft, but not for the Wild Thing. Doesn't mean they won't fit but you can call them and ask if there is any other reason it won't work. May be an easy cross. Good luck!

The spark plug is firing and is getting gas but won't start

It sounds like you have low compression in the engine. I would check the compression it should be 100 psi.

Won't start and when it does it will start hot but cold it takes forever to get it started if at all.

try and make sure your fuel oil mix is to the manufacturers spec. take out your spark plug give it a good clean, before running again drain all old fuel and replace with the correct consistancy mix. this should fixya prob mate

Jammed pull cord on Poulan P4018 chainsaw!

There maybe a split pin holding the cover down over the spindle! Not too sure, but possible. Could be pushed down the centre, just a case of having a good look. Only really worked with Hurqvarna's and Makita's. Hope it helps. Good Luck
