Remove the spark plug and squirt a little bit of the fuel from the gas tank into the spark plug hole, replace the spark plug and crank it over several times.

If it runs, or tries to run... that tells you that your engine, ignition system and gasoline are good (or atleast good enough to get it started)

Next check your fuel line and the primer ball. Make sure that when you pump the primer ball that you can see it pumping fuel through the fuel lines in ONE direction only. (It's kind of hard to see, you might have to start the test with empty fuel lines).

If that fails, you need a carb kit because that's where the check valves are. (unless your primer ball is cracked, broken, or clogged)

Next check the metering diafram and needle in the carb. If the diafram is hard (not easily flexible) or if the needle valve is stuck shut the engine will not be able to get the fuel that it needs to run.

If the Needle valve is stuck, just clean it and it'll most likely be fine.

If the diaphram is hardened, you need a carb kit.

If all the above is ok and it still doesn't work... check the gasket at the base of the carb to make sure that the posative pressure pulses from the crankcase are able to make it through the little holes into the carb (that's how it pumps fuel into the carb).

That's pretty much all the easy stuff. Keep in mind that a new carb only costs about $28 at most places.

Watch the film, before you break fins off your flywheel! The clutch is a left handed thread.

R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch

  1. Check at the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed.
  2. A length of starter cord or nylon rope may be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. It is probably a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
    Let us know how it worked for you. GL

Wild thing motor runs but sproket doesn't turn

Hi, The clutch is shot! This is right at the drive sprocket. leave the bar an chain off and they will fix it in seconds. Warranty right?? If not, you will see an arrow on the way to turn to remove. With a screwdriver straight in on inside body of the clutch, give it a very sharp tap with a hammer. It may take a few trys! Sure wish you had told the make! My crystal ball is not working to well because of the rain! LOL Frankster016

Insufficient chain oiling

Sorry to tell you this but you need a new OIL PUMP but it's not a difficult thing to replace.
On the main shaft of the crank shaft under the centrifugal clutch is a spiral wound wire that matches a plastic part that is the oil pump. You can get the part from Poulan parts and it will take about 15 minutes to fix the first time eight minutes the second time.
Glad to be of assistance.
