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.

Wont run unless you run it on half choke,also very hard to start.


Thats is definately a lean condition. Can be caused by one or more of the following problems: clogged fuel filter, rotten fuel lines, stiff diaghrams, and clogged carb screen.
Todays fuel is a large cause of the problem so I advise that you go ahead and service the entire fuel system... replace the fuel lines and filter and rebuild the carb. Also if the primer bulb is discolored ( brown, they are clear when new) it should be replaced too.
This is not a difficult task as long as you are patient and take your time. Carb kits run from 7-12 bucks, a filter is about 3 bucks and fuel line is about 2 bucks a foot and a primer buld is just a few bucks.
I reccomend getting extra fuel line. It needs to be very snug in the tank to prevent leaking so cut an angle on the end of the fuel line to get it started then reach in and grab it with hemostats and pull it though the fill opening; then cut it off even and insert the fuel filter; then pull the line back into the tank to desired position making sure that filter lays loosely on the bottom of the tank, then cut to length to attatch to carb

Murray mower starts with choke but dies


most likely your main jet in the carb is clogged, water in fuel, or a plugged fuel line, filter, or plugged in the tank where the fuel line connects. it is common to have a plug where the fuel line exits the fuel tank if there is a 90 degree turn in the fitting, debris may build up in the 90 degree area. check by replacing old fuel with new, then pull fuel line from carb and fuel should flow freely, look for a blocked fuel line if it does not flow. it it does flow, pinch off fuel line then remove the float bowl to drain remaining gas and give acess to the main jet. the main jet is located in the side or bottom of the lowest protruding area into the float bowl. run a thin wire like a guitar string thru the small jet hole to unplug, then squirt a little wd-40 thru jet hole to visually check flow. next, unpinch fuel line and fuel should flow from carb into float bowl area. then check to make sure the fuel stops flowing when the float is gently lifted to the top of its travel. if problem in this area, remove float pin, float, and needle valve and check for blockage in the needle valve seat. clean out with wd-40 and reassemble, add fresh gas and give it a try!

My 2001 Chevy Tahoe starts but dies after a few seconds. It sounds like it's choking and suddenly it just dies down. Changed the Fuel filter, don't know where else to start.


it is fuel injected you might need to replace the map sensor or check it to make sure that the vacuum line doesnt have a leak in it

My troybuilt yard pony riding lawnmower will start with the choke fully open and then dies immediatly when you take the choke off. It will only start and run with the choke fully open, but dies after 20-30...


Do you mean that you can start it normally using the choke (that would be choke CLOSED), but then it dies immediately when you move it to run (that would be choke OPEN)? And if you leave the choke in the starting position that it dies after 20-30 seconds?----- If I have that all right, then you definitely have a restriction in the gas supply. Drain all of the gas from the mower and don't use any old gas. If you have any more old gas (from last season) don't use it. If this mower has a gas filter, replace it. Put just a little fresh gas in the tank plus a little of the cleaner. Start it up, do that a few times if needed. Use a fuel additive such as Sea Foam to keep the gas from gumming up so fast.

How to run the fuel hoses for the MAC 3516. Most of the hoses have fallen apart so retracing the hoses is problematic


A McCulloch Mac 3516 model 21-600032-83 IPL example follows (may not be your saw):
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best; components are listed but may be on different illustrations.

If the above is not your saw, yours can be located here:

A typical fuel system and a couple of tips follow:

If properly plumbed your saw will run with carb to primer hose capped off.

McCulloch 3200 won't run


sorry but really does sound as its only ran for 15 secs on the choke cleaner , we usually change the fuel filter ( thats inside the tank , use a hooked piece of stiff wire to pull it up ) , you will likely need to do a full strip and clean of the carb and fit a new diaphragm the small needle valve may well be stuck into its seat , also watch for the fuel line being perished , and very important , make sure its full of of chain lube oil and pumping correctly ( do this before you even fit the chain and bar )and the chain is tensioned correctly and the clutch and chainbrake operates properly

I have a McCulloch 1-Inch 1 HP 26cc 2-Cycle Gas


There are two things to check for. One, vaccum might be created in the tank only allowing the unit to run a few minutes. If it starts to die after running a few minutes, removing the gas cap. If it keeps running, you need a new gas cap. Otherwise your problem is in the carb. It could be bad gas that was in there before or you have debris in the carb itself which only allows the unit to run on choke. Make sure if you have a fuel shutoff valve that it is on.

Put in new carb kit, starts but dies after a few seconds


If you removed the fuel lines from the primer bulb you may have reversed the lines. On two stroke engines the primer pulls gas through the carb it does not push gas into the carb. On the back of the primer bulb there are two hose barbs, one says in (in very small letters) this side goes to the carburetor and the other goes to your gas tank (it is a return line) This line is about a third to a half way up the side of your gas tank, not at the bottom where the fuel line is.

Trying to get McCulloch MS354 35cc chainsaw started


Stiff usually means good compression. So, pump the fuel bulb, put your foot on the flat in the handle, lock the throttle open using the button on top, set choke all the way out and pull. It should kick after a few pulls. Then close choke half way, and pull until it starts, then push choke all in. If it doesn't start, disconnect spark plug and take it out. Have someone watch while the sparkplug is held against metal engine to see if there is a good spark at the plug. If not maybe needs new coil. look at plug to see if it is wet, ie, gas is getting to it to isolate problem to carburetor.
