Question about Poulan Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin

1 Answer

Mcculloch 3216 starts few seconds and dies, choke must be closed.

I have put in new fuel lines but not sure if both lines need to go into the bottom of fuel tank and which way to hook up the pump bulb as **** or push to the carb.
1 line feeds directly into the carb and 1 line goes to the fuel bulb then to the carb.

    I put new lines in the 3216 Mac and it starts and stills right away. I thought the lines must be wrong but I don't see how it would work any other way. I have tried many choke positions and get the same result. I have one line going to the bulb then to the carb, and the other from the carb back into the tank. I must be missing something because when I first found the lines in pices I found one that had but cut lengthwise, and must have served a purpose, but no idea what.

What is the air gap between ignition coil and fly wheel on a poulan pro pp4218 avx?


For practical application you can just use a new business card or 3x5 recipe card. You don't want to use same card too many times though because thickens of card will change with use, and exposure to liquids. I don't remember right off hand the exact specs but I do know we have used this method for years.

I have a Yellow Stone APW-150a pressure washer bought in 2005. The hose is cracked at the fitting that attaches to the washer. Can it be replaced or repaired?


Though I have never heard of Yellowstone appliances, I am pretty sure there is a way to get replacement parts from the company spare parts department or from other sources who sell these pressure washers. If not, try the Internet, or try the Speed shops where they sell these to people who pressure wash their cars/trucks. I am also sure there are other hoses not necessarily for the Yellowstone brand but fit perfectly well on them. Find out where they sell other brands and take your washer to them, ask them if they can sell you a hose with the right connectors to fit your washer. No salesperson can refuse to sell you a good bargain.

call the manufacturer. check out you large local hardware shop for their range of castor wheels . try a shop that specialises in wheels and castors or check out a furniture hard ware shop. some office furniture supply shops have castors that may do the job. Remember in trying to get 1 it may be easier to get 4 new ones of a different style that will fit the hole.

My weed eater will not run with the choke setting wide open.


You may have a pinhole or crack in the small hose that runs from the fuel tank to the carburetor. If equipped with a primer it may also have a small crack or pinhole. Either case may cause the carb to suck air instead of gasoline. Other possible reasons are a plugged muffler causing too much back pressure or a partially clogged fuel filter. (The fuel filter on many weed whackers are located inside the fuel tank at the end of the fuel line.)
