Try putting another new spark plug in it. If that does not work then turn air fuel mixture screw on the carb. all the way to the right then about one half turn counter clockwise and make sure the on/off switch is in the on position. If the saw has been sitting for awhile the carb. may have to be cleaned out. If still no response then take the saw inside and try to warm it to room temp. If still not starting spray a little bit of starter fluid in the intake or wd40. Then see if it will fire up.

Spray a little starter fluid down the carburator . It is starts then is is a fuel problem. Most likely a gummed up carburator. Remove and clean .

It's your ignition, which you can take that stuff apart on the left hand side of the saw under the recoil. I have 2 of these, & you can get the parts. Maybe its just the magneto gap adjustment, which is like a business card or newspaper width gap. I would check that first. Hope this helps you, Rick

Has the unit been stored or sitting unused for over a month? If so Check carburetor diaphragms.

I'd try that site for any help or parts for this Grand Old Lady.

I did a search for "Remington SL4" and found quite a few threads here:

SOURCE: poulan wood shark 1950 wont start spark plug has

Try to squirt a little gas in the carb and see if it pops or tries to run for a short time. The diaphram in the carb is probably old and hard. That would be the first place I would look.

It is getting fuel but has a weak spark and will not start.


DO NOT , I repeat do not use starting fluid on a 2 stroke chainsaw or trimmer. you will score the cylinder or the piston. When trying to diagnose a hard to start motor just give it a small squirt of mix in the carburetor. If it won't fire you have a compression problem or an ignition problem. when you test for spark make sure you have a good plug, that is well grounded and not in bright sunlight which can make it hard to see the spark. if you have spark, do a compression test.

Still chainsaw ms260z will not start


If fuel is making its way to the cylinder and the plug is wet then check the following
1) For clogged spark arrestor if fitted with one.
2) Compression - Needs to be at least 100 psi to ignite the fuel mix
3) Flywheel shear key - A sheared key will have the ignition timing too far off to start.

Chainsaw is getting gas getting spark carb is tight on head everything seems good just can't get it to fire.


Need to take your Carb apart and check the needle valve and screen. If the needle has a red tip, it needs a new one. check the Diaphram to see if it is stiff. If so replace also. Your saw will start right up.

Won't start can't even get it to fire got spark getting gas ,don't know.


Check the compression! It has to be around 120 and no less then 100 to fire off. If it is ok, Have your carb checked out. It should fire off with some spray.

My model 350 chainsaw has spark but will not fire. yes there is gas in tank and i used starting fluid but no go..


Is the plug wet when you take it out ? Is the fire blue and a good arc across it ? I always dip my plug in gas if it is dry, put it in, throttle wide open and if it fires up after a few pulls its not getting fuel. Be careful eith that ether, it will hurt you.

Wont start with new plug. I can smell gas, but none on plug


Check the start stop switch, sometimes they can get dirty causing the saw not to get spark. Also maybe check Your air cleaner. if it's clogged it may be flooding itself out?

I have a stihl chainsaw that won't fire


DID YOU REMOVE THE PLUG AND CHECK THE SPARK AT THE GAP? IF YOU HAVE FIRE THERE THEN THE PROBLEM MUST BE A FUEL PROBLEM. ARE YOU USING A FRESH GAS MIXTURE? YOU CAN PUT A FEW DROPS OF MIXED GAS IN CYLINDER THEN RE-INSTALL PLUG TO SEE IF IT FIRES, IF IT DOES THEN YOUR NOT GETTING GAS FROM THE CARB.POSSIBLE STUCK DIAPHRAGM. GOOD LUCK!!!

NO START


1. has it been sitting?
2.if yes dump out the old gas and what is premixed since it is possibly old, 2 months max.
3. new prem gas and oil mix.
4.press the comp release when starting , was this pressed when you checked compression?
5.if will not sart try a quick blast of WD-40 in carb or a little gas. WD is flammable and will let you know if fuel related. if it fires for a couple seconds then sparks ok and still has gas problem. try one more time and maybe stuck fuel pump flaps in carb will become unstuck. if it runs on WD or small amount of gas in carb but not otherwise, sparks OK. time to rebuild carb check filter and Gas Line.
As always when playing with gas or other Flammables have a Fire Extinguisher ready for the "Expected". Always expect a fire that way you are calm, VERY important if you have spectators.
