Question about Poulan Garden

How do I install a Poulan P3416 ignition switch (kill switch) spring and wire? The old one was so rusted it was in pieces, so I have no clue how to insert the new spring or the wire. Thanks for your help. JD

Pop into your local garden machinery shop if its too old to find a handbook for. You might find someone who knows when he see's it.

SOURCE: poulan p3416 runs for a short time....stalls and

Immediately after it stalls do this:
Ignition Coil Test

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode.

If spark good:
When it begins to stall loosen fuel cap if that fixes it fuel vent problem.

If spark and vent good it is most likely a fuel delivery problem. Check the fuel filter on the free end of a hose in fuel tank (manufacturer recommends an annual replacement). Check all fuel delivery lines especially at fittings and bends for cracks and holes. If those are good then the likely cause is internal parts of the carburetor.


Was this saw perhaps operated without oil mixed with the fuel?
· Remove the spark plug wire and plug.
· Remove the muffler, hold a light at the plug hole and inspect the cylinder through the exhaust port. Is it smooth and shiny or does it appear speckled with dull gray spots or smears?
· Pull the starter slowly, inspect the piston as it rises and falls. Is it a dull gray without scratches and gouges?
· Hold the light at the exhaust port and inspect the cylinder, above the exhaust port, through the spark plug hole. Is it shiny and smooth or speckled with gray spots or smears?
Any spots or smears on the cylinder or deep scratches and gouges in the piston indicate the saw was operated in a lean condition. Repair of this on a home owner quality saw often exceeds replacement cost. A repair estimate by the independent saw shop should be considered. HTH

This will even work on a Chinese McCulloch 3416. If this is a Mac it may be very difficult to find a repair shop willing to repair it.

SOURCE: i need to install a new spring for the pull start

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.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool. HTH

SOURCE: replace starter rope spring part no 545008013 on

Hook the spring at the inner mount, then wind the spring CCW until the spool assembly can be attached to the outer spring, then continue to wind the spool until the spring is about half-tight or so. It must be able to wind about three or four turns more without becoming 'bound' which would lock the spool and not permit return of the cord. When the spring is wound, wedge it so that the cord can be attached, the work the cord around the spool so that the outer end will only project beyond the cord port a little way. Pull the cord out to make sure that the spring doesn't bind at full extension, the apply locking pliers to the cord to be able to attach the handle. Melt the cord ends to prevent the knots from pulling out. Hope this helps!

I want to know to to install my kill switch nothing wrong with it and to know we're to put where it belongs


A kill switch is an effective and economical way to dissuade a thief from taking your car. While it may not prevent a professional thief from stealing it, it will likely deter the average amateur. The key to how to install a kill switch is the choice of what type of switch and where to place it. A kill switch that controls the power to you fuel pump is far more effective then a regular battery kill switch, because it is unexpected and can be well hidden.

Difficulty:

Moderately Easy

Things You'll Need:

Wiring diagram for vehicle Electrical tape Toggle switch Drill Phillips head screwdriver #14 wire Inline fuse Wire crimping pliers (2) **** connectors (2) Post connectors (type dependent on switch)

Instructions

Park your car on a level spot with the parking brake on. Raise the hood and disconnect the battery cable.

Use your wiring diagram to locate the power wire for your fuel pump. Make sure this is the power wire and not the ground by following the wire to the fusebox (or ignition). The ground will terminate to a connection to the frame of the car. Place a 'tag' on the power wire under the dash with a piece of electrical tape so you can find it again easily.

Open the package to your toggle switch and remove the mounting bracket and hardware. Follow the directions to mount the switch under your car's dash, or on the body of the driver's seat. You will need to use a drill if you do not have pre-drilled holes for the mounting screws. Make sure the switch is tightly installed by pressing firmly into the screws with your Philips Head screwdriver and turning it clockwise until it is hand tight.

Cut the power wire to your fuel pump with the middle section of your electrical crimping pliers.

Cut two pieces of #14 wire long enough to run from the back of the kill switch to the cut power wire.

Strip the ends of the cut power wire and both ends of each piece of #14 wire. Use **** connectors to connect a #14 wire to each of the ends of the power wire. Crimp the **** connector closed over the joined wires ,and pull lightly to make sure the connection is solid.

Attach the wire connectors to the bare ends of the two pieces of #14 wire (style will depend on the connectors of your toggle switch), crimp into place and tug test again.

Connect the #14 wire that joins the power wire that goes into fusebox or ignition box to the connection on the toggle switch that is above the base of the toggle (there will be only two connectors on the back of the switch; do not use the 3 post kind, as that is a lighted switch and easily found).

Connect the remaining #14 wire to the switch. Re-connect the negative cable to the battery and test your switch, make sure you can hear the pump come on, and you are done.

Tips & Warnings

Re-wire any accessories that need constant power (like the clock, radio or any other anti-theft devices you have) directly to the battery.

Never do any work on any electrical component of the battery without first disconnecting the negative cable on the battery; if it remains connected, you run the risk of a shock or fire while working.

How do you wire in a kill switch


just eliminate and cut off the wire to the existing kill switch the put any kill switch you want on it and take the main electrical lead to the ignition or what ever it is and put the new kill switch in the middle of the new kill switch you installed I did it before it always works just make sure to eliminate the old kill switch and its connections are no longer needed

I just bought a new Poulan Model P3416 chaisaw (34cc) and I have followed the starting instructions and have not been able to start the saw. I have even varied the instructions but no luck. Any thoughts...


see if your switch is in run position and then pull your spark plug out see if it is wet, then see if it is sparking when you ground it and pull cord to roll over, if all is good hold throttle wide open and crank over without choke on, probably flooded, good luck

I have a poulan hd145h42, the engine turns over but does not fire. any suggustions


hi there

pull the kill wire off the magnetron ignition unit and recheck for spark, if now sparks - problem is a grounding kill wire or a saftey switch grounding out the kill wire - try baypassing the seat switch then the clutch brake switch and nuetral switch if it has one

but - : if still no spark - faulty magnetron unit is indicated - replace the unit and set air gap to 0.010 "

to source neew coil you will need model and type codes from the blower cover / or rocker cover
they will look something like this - 289707-01121-e1 980605 11

write down your numbers and head down to your local outdoor power shop and give them the numbers to source the correct part for your engine - provided that you determine that the coil is at fault

cheers hope it helps

Poulan BVM200 LE leal blower it about 4 years old and has no spark. It work well last fall. Must the ignition module be replaced. Thanks, Rick


hi rick

if the plug is ok and kill switch and wire have been isolated from the ignition unit

and the earth is good for the armature legs on the coil - then yes the ignition module must be replaced and the air gap set to 0.010 "

a fair bit of work involved in replacing coil in one of these units !!!

ps make sure compression and muffler are ok and have a look up the ex port and check rings / piston and bore for any damage before parting with any cash for new coil

and dont be tempted to use stale fuel mix in your blower it can cause a lubrication fault
resulting i damage to piston / rings etc


cheers pauly46

A new spring can be found here:

A new spring comes wound tight enough to be dropped into place in the starter housing (Easiest).

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 when inserted. It will require about 2 turns of pretension to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and wind the withdrawn cord onto the spool. GL

Poulan Pro 42 chainsaw will not start


I had the same problem on a P3416 saw. I had a new Champion plug and coil installed. I tested the plug by removing it and plugging it in the coil wire and ground the end of the plug on the engine block. It did not spark so I bought another plug. This one fired but it was real weak so I loosen the coil and slipped a piece of light folder paper between the coil and magnets and tighten the bolts. Got a better spark and got it to run.
