You will find that saws of recent production allow very little if any adjustment for the consumer. The carb will either have limiters which allow you less than one turn of adjustment or they require a special tool to make the adjustment. You will need to take it to a dealer to have these adjustments made. This is your government in action protecting you from that evil pollution your chainsaw spews out.

If you are able to adjust, then gently seat each screw and open 1 full turn. This should allow the unitto start and you can adjust from there. If it will not start you probablu need carb repair or replacement or you have other problems.

Poulan 2050 fuel line routing & replacement

If you were like me, you can't find anything specific on the Poulan 2050 fuel line routing. However, I have just completed this task successfully and this applies to an engine that has a Walbro carburetor, with an inlet at the top right and bottom left. The smaller diameter tubing which runs from the tank and is connected to the fuel filter in the tank goes to the nipple which is on the top of the carburetor, period. There are two lines running to the primer bulb and one goes to the bottom left side of the carburetor and one goes to the line running into the tank. If you have an original primer, the lines on the primer itself may not be marked, so you may have to switch them around to get them right. When they are right, fuel should travel from the tank, up the small diameter fuel line, through the carburetor and the excess goes back into the tank through the primer. Simply switching these lines around on the primer will solve the problem. An easy test is to remove the supply line (the one that comes from the filter) from the carb nipple and pump the primer. If gas comes out, then you have it right. To replace the actual fuel line and filter is easy enough as well if you cut the end of the small line on a diagonal of about 2" or more so that it easily slips through the hole in the upper part of the tank. Then simply grab it with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull it down slowly until you can feed it using your left hand to pull, right hand to thread. I am not a mechanic but this is exactly how I did it. Hopefully this simple description is helpful and yes, the nipples on the carburetor are repectfully input and output but determining which is which is not often easy, so that is why I specifically talk to a Poulin 2050 model. Now replacing the trigger assembly is another matter which I need to learn about.

Diagram of fuel lines from tank to primer to carb and back to tank for a poulan 2050 chainsaw.

Replacement fuel lines can be found at yourlocal chainsaw seller/mechanic. They are different diameters.

Fuel Line Replacement
  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, the output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill the bulb as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.

Which fuel line "port/inlet" on the Walbro wt-380 goes to the fuel tank? It's on a Craftsman 25cc Gas "Weed Wacker" Line Trimmer purchased in 2002. It has Walbro WT-380 carburetor with external primer...

Usually the line with the filter on it that comes from the tank goes to carb. inlet first which is most likely close to the bottom side of the carb.nearest to the engine,then the outlet or return line on the carb.goes to the inlet side of the primer and the outlet side of the primer goes back to the tank. The primer draws fuel through the carb to the primer to the tank if its not? then correct the line connections until it does
