SOURCE: I have a powercraft chainsaw, do you know the

Hi, Most chainsaws use three mixes, which are 32:1, 40:1 or 50:1. Most are labeled somewhere on the saw. If you are unsure, use the 40:1 and watch the smoke, too much smoke use less mix, but don't run with too little, it is supposed to smoke some. If you see any oil coming from the exhaust it is too much and can't burn it all. Good Luck, hope this Fixsya!

Remove the spark plug and test for blue, snappy spark. If nothing, try a new plug set for 0.020" gap. If still nothing, remove the cover from the flywheel side to expose the ignition module. Remove the ignition switch wire from the module and try for spark again--if ok, check for a grounded ignition switch or the wire itself. If still nothing, replace the ignition module. Use a thin business card for a pole gap between the module and the flywheel magnets. Allow the module poles to contact the magnets, then tighten the screws. Rotate the flywheel to remove the card. If you got spark in the first test, then place some fuel mix in the plug hole and try to start. You should get several pops. If ok, then work on the fuel system. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. If the machine is fairly old, you should check the condition of the lower chamber diaphragm in the carburetor--it may have become hard or cracked. Hope some of this helps!

SOURCE: powercraft pc40-38cc chain oil not getting to

Take the bar and chain off. Clean the engine area where the bar fits to and start the engine--oil should ooze out of the small port where you cleaned. If ok, clean the small drive-end oil passages that lead from the larger holes out to the chain groove on each side of the bar. They commonly fill with sawdust and dirt which plugs them. Clean the entire chain groove and check/oil the end sprocket if it has one. Reinstall the bar and chain, then start the engine and run the tip near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

What kind of saw. How old? New Spark Plug? How old is the gas inside it? Is the air filter dirty? When you try to start it does it turn easy or is it a little stubborn or won't turn at all?

If you dont know use 25/1.
Or buy a 2stroke one shot bottle of oil, that does the mix for a gallon, most mower shops do it.

The saw does not cut well at all. I've sharpened the blade and even purchase a new one. Still, I can barely cut through a 6" limb. Ideas?


It could be the clutch. If the chain slows down and the engine does not the clutch is slipping and needs to be replaced.

Can anyone help with fuel mix and starting instructions for McCulloch 2214av chainsaw please


Ok, always use good quaility teo stroke oil, from a manufacturer who actually produces a chainsaw, ie Husqvarna/Stihl/Jonsered etc, all of these oils should be run at 50-1, avoid oil makes you have never heard of.
Starting instructions are as follows, switch the red ignition switch too on ( up ) depress the primmer bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb ( you cannot flood the engine if you over prime, it is better to over prime ) pull the blue choke fully out, crank the engine until it fires once ( it will only fire once, do not continue to crank the engine after it first fires with the choke still out ) now push the choke fully back in, crank the engine until it fires up and runs on fast idle,now blip the throttle trigger to diss engage the fast idle position, the saw should now drop down to idle.

POWERCRAFT PC40-38cc.THE CHAIN OILER DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE WORKING! NO OIL IS COMING OUT THE SMALL HOLE IN THE HOUSING THAT THE BAR IS CLAMPED AGAINST, WHEN I RUN THE ENGINE WITH NO BAR AND CHAIN...


It would appear that you must 'go under the cover'. Look for a damaged oil line or split oil tank. The oil pump may have come loose from it's mounting. Be sure to check the oil filter for plugging. Hope this helps!

Poulan 18" Chainsaw - Motor runs fine but blade stopped spinning


Chain may be locked in the bar. Caused by low oil flow to chain. You will probably have to remove the bar and blade. Then try to rotate the sprocket, if it will not rotate you may have to replace or repair the clutch. with the blade off try starting the saw and see if it is oiling. There is a small hole in housing that oil should be visible coming out at a fairly good rate. If not you will either have to open orifice in the housing or repairing the oil pump.
