Spark plug gap is .025
As for the air gap in-between the flywheel, and magneto, I generally start with a piece of notebook paper in-between them.
After the bolts are snugged down, turn the flywheel by hand to spin the paper out.

A Poulan 2025 IPL follows:
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.
Small hose (filter on bottom) long enough to reach all corners inside tank, to lower carburetor connection. Please leave the 2 carburetor connections long enough to reverse until the saw is running.
Upper carburetor connection, small hose to suction side of primer.
Pressure side of primer (large hose) to middle of tank. nothing on bottom, length not critical.
The IPL is deceptive it appears the filtered hose connects to the primer; it does not.
Typical fuel system link and a couple of suggestions here:

Remove the flywheel side cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Check the flywheel magnets to ignition module gap with a thin business card for a gauge. If ok, remove the grounding wire that goes to the ignition switch and try for spark again. If still nothing, it's new module time. If removing the grounding wire got it to spark, replace the ignition switch or perhaps the grounding wire has shorted out on it's way to the ignition switch. Hope this helps!
