SOURCE: fuel lines
Line into tank isn't easy to pass. I made small hole in line near bottom, tied 30 pound fishing line to it (with knot inside of tube lumen), passed line through opening from above, and with fishing line pressure pulling gas line in, I squeezed tip of gas line entering tank from above with needle nose pliers until the line went into tank. Then i pulled excess through until i could trim tip (with knot) through gas tank opening, and then reversed line pull back into tank. Trim other end to fit onto primer exit port.

Find the model of your saw and open the IPL and handle assembly drawing here:
This is as good as fuel routing gets!!! If this isn't sufficient Find your nearest Poulan repair facility or try your friendly neighborhood chainsaw seller/mechanic. Resubmitting this question won't get any better answer. HTH

It isn't good but it's all there is.
What little fuel system system detail there is can be found here:
If it is a 2375 WildThing find 2375LE Gas Saw Type ?. The last digit of your serial number should be a -1 or -2, the type.

A Poulan IPL for your saw “2375LE Gas Saw Type?” (LE is code for WildThing; if your saw is beyond serial -2 look at a saw without the LE; it makes little difference to the fuel system) can be found here:
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. Your instructions were correct.I did have to reverse the connections on the carburetor. My chainsaw works fine now."
First rule is to replace only one line at a time. Needle nose pliers is the only tool you should need. Replace the fuel line from the filter in the tank to the carburetor by removing the filter from the line, extract the line out of the tank, and remove the other end from the carburetor. Use the old line to measure for the replacement. Measure the point where the old line passed through the tank wall down to the filter connection. Mark this point on the new line, and push the line into the tank far enough to attach the filter (which you have checked for plugging), then pull the line back out to the mark. Make sure that you use the proper line for this connection as the filter must flop around to the lowest tank level so that the saw doesn't run dry of fuel when operated on it's side. The other connections are straight forward--just replace one at a time. Don't be stingy in making looping turns as you don't want future kinks. Hope this helps!

Testimonial: "I'll give the needle nose pliers another go at it! Problem is, the pliers aren't able to pass into the neck of the fuel tank from my last attempt."
