Question about Poulan P3314 14" Gas Chain Saw 2.0 Cuin 33CC 2 Cycl
I had (and still have) the same problem with the same saw. Like you I took it apart and the spring unwound. The way I finally got it back together was to lie it (spring down) on a flat surface near the edge. I then rewound the spring while holding the white plastice piece in place with a pair of vice grips. Once wound I slid it off the edge of the bench very slowly holding the spring in place with my fingers (carful because if you let it slip it can slice your finger) Then I set it back in holding the hooked end with a screw driver and placing the side opposite the hook in first. I managed on the first try to pop it in place and while it seems to turn and recoil fine when I put the saw back together it still sticks which prompted the repair in the first place.

Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly. HTH

I did the same thing only with a large clamp instead of vice grips. I also was able to get it in place the first try. Make sure you line up the spring so the hook that goes into the cover lines up. Also screw down the cover very gently, it does not need to be tight and if it is it will not allow the spring to retract after pulling.
