Its almost certainly made by Poulan.
This may help you find an IPL at Sears, they are available:
This lists all Poulans. It will be difficult to find your saw but it is here:
It sounds as though the starter spring is broken.
This thread explains how to reinstall the spring.
The IPL for your saw shows all the parts and provides an idea of how they fit together. GL

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.

Try a squirt of starting fluid in the plug hole, replace the plug and try to start. If you get a pop or two, then you have fuel problems. Make sure you have fresh fuel mix in the tank. Check the condition of all fuel lines including the in-tank line plus the fuel filter for plugging. Check the muffler and air cleaner for plugging. Does the engine seem to have good compression? If everything looks ok, then it may be time to disassemble the carburetor, clean and re-kit it. Set both needle jet screws initially at 1-1/2 turns out CCW from the CW stops (lightly). The engine should start and run--allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H CW until the engine runs faster, but is still 4-stroking. The correct adjustment is for the engine to 4-stroke, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L CW for fairly smooth running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed screw to stop the chain from turning at idle, but keeps the engine running. Hope some of this helps!

Check for a plugged fuel filter and defective fuel lines. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Check for spark at the plug--it should be blue and snappy with a new plug. If ok, squirt in some fuel mix in the plug hole, replace the plug, and see if it will pop a couple of times. If ok, make sure the primer bulb draws fuel into it after several pumps. If still won't run, remove the lower chamber of the carburetor and check the diaphragm for flexibility and no holes. Hope this helps!
