SOURCE: change all fuel lines in a McCollough Chain Saw,

It should be as illustrated on the link.
Typical Fuel System (Primer Bulb and fuel lines may not apply)
The line with the filter needs to be long enough to reach all parts of the tank as the saw is moved. The return line is not a critical length probably mid tank. Do you have the filtered hose feeding the primer and not the carburetor? That will cause what you describe. HTH

Hard starting

Starting any chain saw can be a bit finicky. How many hours has the saw done since new ruffle? Over about 10 and the saw would have run in and will need to have the fuel adjusted. What fuel to oil ratio are you running?

Just as a point, you might know this but I only pull the saw over 3-4 times with the choke in. Then try to start with it off.

Seeing a lot of fuel line problems due to ethanol. Make sure your fuel lines and primer lines are in tact. If the fuel line has broken, you may also need to clean out the inlet screen in the carburetor which can also become clogged.

142 chain saw. Starts but will not pick up when

Check the fuel lines for hardness, cracking, splitting, or end rot. Check the muffler for plugging. Check the carburetor fasteners for tightness. Are you using fresh fuel mix? If the carburetor jets have been adjusted, try turning both CW to stops (lightly) then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns. Engine should start and run--allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on, and adjust H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-strokes. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Let idle and adjust L CW for fairly smooth running, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Hope this helps!

Saw starts then dies. Changed fuel ine soaked carb

Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Was the carburetor disassembled when soaked and did you use compressed air to blow out all passages? If the carburetor jet screws have been moved, preset them as follows: Turn both H and L screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW each screw 1-1/2 turns. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H CW until the engine speeds up somewhat but 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L CW until the engine runs fairly well, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

Chain smoking while cutting,hard cutting,and pull string hard to pull new saw.

too much oil in the fuel, or set screws are not mixing air fuel properly. have the set screws looked at, and listen for a bearing to be gone, there are two un related issues here.

Poulan model 1800 gas chain saw will not stay running at an idle. It dies after 3 to 4 seconds of idling. Why

Likely needs carburetor rebuilt. The fuel is pumped by a diaphram that runs off the vacuum pulses.

Another thing to check is a plugged fuel filter or an air leak in the fuel finder hose in the tank.

A have a MAC3200 chain saw. A mechanic started it and left it running on the ground at full throttle for about 10 to 15 seconds. Now, it starts, runs for 10 seconds and dies and is extremely difficult to...

Is the fuel/oil ratio correct with a good 2-stroke oil used? If bad fuel mix, it could have scuffed the piston and rings. Hard to say if the mechanic caused any problems. Why was the mechanic working with it?

Stihl 021 is hard to start, runs very briefly after ignition.

My guess is since you have ignition, it is a fuel issue: 1- the carb or the fuel lines or pump are plugges with dirt, 2- fuel pump is not working,3- carb needs cleaned 4- air filter is plugged which is very common also. When the saws sit for 6 months or so, the cylinder tends to get gummed up cause our gas is SO good & when this happens with one of my saws, I put spray lube in the spark plug hole & turn it over. When I am thinking, I store my saws with the gas tank down, so that gas isnt running into the carb/engine.
