SOURCE: 2375 ''wild thing'' poulan saw hard starting after carb rebuild

Through trial and error on fairly new Poulin Pro, found that the usual 3-half turns for both high and low was too much (flooded) (Used to be good starting point on weed eaters years ago. So, turned both all the way in, and only backed out 1-full turn. (2-halves) Saw fired up perfectly, and ran wide open just fine. Try that.

SOURCE: how to adjust Zama carb on poulan pro

You will find a Low and High adjustment screw. At idle turn the screw in or clockwise until the rps starts to decrease. Then start turning it out till you hit max idle rpms. Turn screw back in a quarter to half turn and it should be idling smoothly. Be careful here and get someone to hold saw if necessary but hold in throttle to full speed and do the same with high adjustment screw. turn it in till rpm starts to drop then back it out until you get to max rpm and it won't go any higher then turn it back in a half a turn.

SOURCE: My poulan wild thing 2375 bogs out when throttle

Make sure that the air cleaner and muffler are not plugged. Check the carburetor screws and nuts for tightness. After turning both needles CW to stops (lightly), back them out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Open the throttle and adjust the H needle CW somewhat until the engine speeds up, but is 4-stroking. Correct adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L CW till the engine runs fairly smoothly, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set the idle speed screw so that the chain doesn't turn, but the engine keeps running. Hope this helps!

This sounds more like basic carb settings, you will probably need the special tool to adjust thge jet screws if that do not have a slot in them Part no. 530035560, the carb is set up in the factory for the best emmissions, not the best running, you need to richen the mixture up on the L screw by unscrewing it a little bit at a time until it picks up clean, you may then have to increase the idle on the T screw.

They are called "tamper proof" or "tamper resistant adjusters. Amazon has a pretty good set for a reasonable price. Search on Tamper Proof Tool. It's nice the have a set around as you never know what you will run into.

For the Poulan, go to eBay and search on "Poulan Craftsman Walbro carb adjusting tool". You will find what you need there. I hope this helps.

Poulan Pro 295 won't keep running.


pull the black dust cap on top there are three screws going down, the idle screw is on the left side (if you were holding the saw) near the top of the carb it has a spring around it. the 2 weird screws under that are the mixture screws hi and low rpm you really shouldn't mess with those unless your sure of what your doing. if that doesn't work there is a really small hole ( and I mean small) in the bottom of the carb for a diaphragm if that gets clogged it runs bad, also vibration can loosen the cylinder bolt turn the saw upside down and there are (or should be 4 bolts) make sure they are tight if one already rattled out take the one kitty corner to Lowe's or a hardware store and get a replacement.

Base adjust. on carb high and low needles on carb polen 42 18" thanks


The standard setting on needles is to screw them in all the way and then back them out 1 and a half turns.

You need to set the mixtures for the carburetor. You will find a Low and High adjustment screw. turn the low adjustment screw out. You will notice that the rpms should start increasing. keep turning it out until the rpms start to drop then turn it back in a quarter of a turn. You may need to readjust the idle speed so the chain doesn't turn during idle. Do the same for the high adjustment screw.
