SOURCE: poulan saw wont start has spark and fuel

Look for a pinched/bare stop-switch wire (I assume that you don't have spark now). Also, check the ignition coil core gap to the flywheel magnets (I use card stock to set the gap). Make sure the plug wire was not damaged again.

SOURCE: Poulan PP446T Pole Saw. Will run only if choke is

It is running lean. There is an air leak somewhere allowing to much air into the cylinder or crankcase. Continuing to operate lean may cause failure. If fuel delivery lines have no pin holes or cracks probably time for some professional help (pressure tests). Remove clean and reinstall the muffler (carbon fouling can also cause this). If the saw cannot exhale, it cannot inhale. HTH

SOURCE: poulan saw wont run

Clean the muffler spark arrestor screen and check the cylinder port for carbon build-up at the upper edge. Try presetting both carburetor H and L adjustments (from lightly CW stops) 1-1/2 turns CCW each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle wide open and adjust H CW until the engine speed increases, but still 4-stroking. Correct setting is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L for smoother running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed to keep the engine running, but doesn't try to move the chain. You may have to look closer at your carburetor if the above doesn't help. Go to:
http://www.drystacked.com
for an excellent article (but poor pix) on Walbro carburetors, but related to most all 2-stroke carburetors. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I have a Poulan 14"

Inside the fuel tank, there is a small flexible fuel line with a float (or sinker) attached. The float (or sinker) is supposed to keep the end of the fuel line submerged in the fuel. The float (or sinker) may be detached, or stuck, or it may be saturated and won't float (if it's the floating kind).
Good luck, Al K

SOURCE: poulan 2150 saw will not start.

Many saws today have a alluminium key moulded into the flywheel, if the key has sheared the timing will be out and it will never start, remove the flywheel and check the key.

Carburetor change


Primer bulbs pull fuel from the carb, into the bulb and dumps it back to the tank, if you have re connected the hoses to the primer the wrong way around it will try to force fuel into the carb and make it flood.

Poulan 446t Will start, won't continue to


The diaphragm in the carb is likely ruined from the gas gelling onto it. This will put pinholes in it and then it won't work properly. Pick up a carb kit and rebuild it (if parts available) and then you should be good to go. If you can't rebuild the carb, a replacement will run you 30 bucks or more.

I have this saw and really like it. Does the the primer seem to work? Most problems on these saws can be traced back to cracked fuel lines. Either tank to primer, primer to carb, or carb return back to tank. I would recommend it the saw it more than 3 years old to replace all the fuel lines. Total cost about $5. Buy your fuel line at Ace Hardware.

I had to replace all my gas line on my Poulan 446t i need someone that knows how they hookup


Typical fuel system and a couple of tips. Leave the carburetor connections a little long so they can be swapped if need be. I think the upper most connection goes to the bleeder.

I think this is an IPL for your pole saw: (there are others, this may not be your saw):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP446T-Gas-Pole-Pruner/75.PP446T-Gas-Pole-Pruner.1.59.1.html
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.

All Models:

The dash number of your serial number is the type (true for chainsaw, my first pole saw. If uncertain try to contact them please.). HTH

Please reply back (below) with the final configuration. Help me provide better guidance to the next guy please.

Wont run without choke being pulled out 1/4 .


INFO:
-Remove Carb and clean, you have a high speed fuel port clogged.

NOTE:
This would also be a good time to replace your fuel lines, Take photos before you start.

RECOMENDATIONS:
-Drain all fuel from the Saws fuel tank.
-Remove and REPLACE with a NEW spark plug.
-Remove and RELPACE with a NEW Air filter.
-With spark plug and air filter removed and fuel drained pull the starting cord many times 12 or so to ensure there is no fuel in the chamber and also check for a spark at the plug.
-RE-MIX WITH NEW FUEL your 2 cycle oil to the correct ratio in a clean fuel can. it is OK to dump some in the Saws fuel tank slosh around and dump out in an approved container for disposal.
-Hold off on putting back on the air filter until you have had it running.

Hope this Tip Helps.

My Poulan Pro 260 chainsaw will start and run when the choke is pulled out, but as soon as I disengage the choke, the saw dies. Do I need to have the carbuerator checked?


It is running in a lean condition. Continued operation like that can cause piston and cylinder failure.
I'd take it in for repair estimate ($10) at the local chainsaw seller/mechanic. Explain the problem you are having, Probably a leaking fuel line. I'd expect a repair and tune up about $40-60. Your saw will perform better and your arm will thank you. If tuned ask what fuel/oil ratio they used (should be 50:1) and affix a label to your fuel tank. HTH

I need info on a Poulan Pro 445 fuel line routing


I'm so confused. This is reported as a Poulan and McCulloch pole saw, which one? Is it a pole saw? That is the only 445 Poulan I can find. It is reported as an electric but has a fuel routing problem.

If it is a Poulan Pro gas pole saw it is here: PP445 Gas Pole Pruner
The fuel system routing is terrible, but it is all there is.
Fuel Routing follows:
Tank to carburetor (hose in tank with filter on free end)
Carburetor to primer (primer draws fuel from the tank through the carb)
Primer to fuel tank (returns any excess fuel to tank when pushed) HTH

On a Poulan Pro pruner(446T), it wouldn't start so I put new fuel lines on and cleaned the carb. Then it wouldn't fire, so I replaced the coil pack but still nothing. It doesn't try to fire even after I...


I have an earlier model of Poulan Pro Pruner with a similar problem. It is a PP258 and looks identical to the 446T. My unit had about 3 hours of use max.This was the second year. It had some compression but I was not sure it was enough. It would not start and had good spark. I pulled the plug and put about an ounce of oil in the cyl and put the plug back in. Pumped the primer bulb and put carb to Start. On the first pull I could tell the compression was better. It started on the second pull and would only run wide open and smoking from the oil. Something was wrong in the cylinder. I dissasembled the engine and discovered a tiny piece of metal had gotten caught between the cyl wall and the piston. The cyl was scored and the ring land pinched the ring. Time to get some new parts. I also had to use my air cut off saw to get the clutch drum off because the screw wouldn't budge. About $60 will fix it. Overall it isn't a job fopr the average homeowner. What a pain.
