Question about Poulan PP3516
I can cut wood for 5 or 6 minutes then the saw quits. It will start again after it sits for about 45 minutes and I can cut wood for another 5 minutes. This happens over and over. I put new gas and a new spark plug in but it made no difference.
Are you sure you have the correct amount of 2-stroke oil mixed in the gas? It sounds like it is overheating. Also check the engine to make sure the fins aren't clogged with wood shavings.

I cannot tell you about a picture, but for one: chain direction, the bottom of the bar is where the cutting takes place, and therefore, looking at the chain, you will see, on the bottom, the antikick back link is sort of curved, and then the next part is the straight tooth. The highest part of this straight tooth is the sharp edge, and this high part should face towards the motor. The chain, on the bottom side of the bar, is pulled in towards the motor by the clutch/gear. That is your direction of travel.
As to cleaning the air filter, Hopefully you have access to compressed air, as in simply blowing off the dirt. You do not want to use liquid cleaner. Simply blow off any dirt, after pulling the filter away from the carburetor, of course. Then place it back in place.
It may be that your chain is real dull. The top edge of the high part of the flat tooth needs to be sharp. And the outside corner needs to come to a nice point. Remember, there is two cutting surfaces on each tooth, the top is cutting down into the wood, and also that outside sharp corner is openning the cut for the bar to pass through. Proper sharpening, if new to it, can be hard to grasp. Any chainsaw manual should show how to do a good job.

sounds like you may have a broken throttle cable. take the top cover off and inspect to see if this is the problem. let me know if this is it or if you need more assistance with this.

TRY RUNNING AT HALF OR FULL WHEN IT DOES POSSLBY BAD GAS/MIX IF YOU CHANGED THAT ALREADY CARB PROBALY NEED TO BE CLEAN

Not used in 10 years. Was there gas left in the tank? If so the carb is likely gummed up and may need to be taken apart and soaked in "Gunk" solvent and a new kit installed.
