I looked at a breakdown for the 42CC not sure if the same one or not but it appears that the chain sprocket is held on by an Eclip and behind that a flat washer. If this doesn't look like yours give me the model number and I will research another breakdown

Not pumping oil to chain, bought a new pump and oil pickup but I`m not sure where the oil pump is located and what I have to disassemble to get to it.


Most oil pumps are situated behind the clutch and sprocket, these will need to be removed before you can acsess the old pump, if it has an inboard sprocket you will need to remove the clutch first, these are a left hand thread and just spun onto the crankshaft, they need to be jarred off against the compression of the saw, you may need a special tool if there is no nut on the outside of the clutch, this tool fits most Poulon clutches 530035560, once removed it is a fairly straight forward job to change the pump.

Brand new saw, started it and it seized, piston is now seized


Did you mix the proper amount of oil with the gasoline? Are you sure the piston is seized and it isn't just that the chain is too tight for the sprocket to turn?

I HAVE A POULAN PRO 260 42cc 18 inch THAT IS 5 yrs old REPLACED BAR AN CHAIN . WENT TO CUT SOME TREE LIMBS CAN NOT EVEN MAKE ONE FULL CUT AN CHAIN COMES OFF AFTER 4 TIMES WENT AN RENTED ONE.


Remove the new chain and compare it against the old one. Do the new drive teeth match the 'pitch' of the old chain? If incorrect, the chain cannot be adjusted properly and will 'climb' over the sprocket due to the chain teeth not matching the teeth on the drive sprocket. Getting the proper chain is the answer in this case. Hope this helps!

Chain and sprocket won't move. Poulan P4018WT


Poulan P4018WT Gas Saw Type 2 link below (may not be your saw - 5 to choose from):

It has an inboard clutch. If this is your saw remove the clutch cover, bar,
chain and inspect the chain brake linkage within. Is the brake band tight against the clutch drum? If yes grasp the forward most upper handle and pull it aft (may require some force at rear extreme) until it clicks (a keeper nests in a detent). Is there a little clearance between the brake band and clutch drum? Can you spin the clutch drum now? If yes reassemble your saw.
