Question about Poulan Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin
Remove the air filter, squirt a little fuel into the carb. Start and let run if it will for a few minutes. Could be you had some water in old fuel. and it is still in the intake of saw. If it still will not run after squirting some fuel into carb. You have a firing problem.

I suspect the carburetor is full of remnants of the same fluids you found in the tank. If it was my saw I'd take it to the local Stihl dealer for an estimate to repair. I'd expect to pay $40 - 80 for a tune up and repair depending on how many fuel hoses must be replaced. HTH

Look at the link "Engine Assembly" print. If your saw has multiple pieces like shown there is an additional internal screw. If not the only thing that comes to mind is remove the engine cover.
There are other "PP295" saws listed here:
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

pull the black dust cap on top there are three screws going down, the idle screw is on the left side (if you were holding the saw) near the top of the carb it has a spring around it. the 2 weird screws under that are the mixture screws hi and low rpm you really shouldn't mess with those unless your sure of what your doing. if that doesn't work there is a really small hole ( and I mean small) in the bottom of the carb for a diaphragm if that gets clogged it runs bad, also vibration can loosen the cylinder bolt turn the saw upside down and there are (or should be 4 bolts) make sure they are tight if one already rattled out take the one kitty corner to Lowe's or a hardware store and get a replacement.

Does the spark plug get wet with fuel when pulled through? If dry, try spraying a little starting fluid in the plug hole and reinstall the plug. If it pops at least once, you have fuel delivery problems--look for hardened/ cracked fuel lines. Clean the muffler arrestor screen. When the muffler is off, check the condition of the piston skirt and cylinder wall for deep scoring or obvious wear. Make sure the primer button (if equipped) is filling with fuel when pumped a few times. If it doesn't, make sure the bulb is not hard or cracked and check the lines going to and from it. Check the carburetor bolts and nuts for tightness. The fuel filter in the tank could be plugged, fish it out and check. If you have checked all these items, it may be time to clean and rekit the carburetor. Hope this helps!

Start first with a fresh spark plug set at 0.020" gap. Make sure ignition switch is on. If still nothing, remove the cover from the flywheel. Set the ignition module gap by using a thin business card between the module poles and the flywheel magnets. Loosen the mounting screws, let the module contact the magnets, and re-tighten the screws. Turn the flywheel to remove the card, then rotate the flywheel on full turn checking that the gap doesn't close-up any further. Check for spark again--if still nothing, remove the ignition switch wire from the ignition module. Check for spark--if spark now occurs, check the condition of the ignition switch or the connecting wire may be grounding out somewhere in between. If still nothing, replace the ignition module. Hope this helps!
