How to start poulan 18 inch wildthing chainsaw


Hello Wade,
There should be starting instructions on back on saw, if not its usually the same for most saws. Fill tank with proper mixed fuel. Add bar and chain oil if necessary. Pull knob out to "start" position. Pull choke all the way out. Prime unit 6 times. Place saw firmly on floor, slide right foot under handle and have left hand firmly on top handle. Pull throttle and lock it in high. Pull rope 4 to 5 times until unit pops.Then, set chock lever on half.(this is usually pushing in half way). Pull rope again 4 to 5 times until unit starts, then after 30 seconds or so push choke knob in to turn choke off. If this procedure doesn't work, give it 10 minutes or so, because unit may be flooded, then try again. Good luck!

Starter rope hard to pull. It's not smooth and takes a lot of effort.


Make sure the brake is off and retest. If brake is off and still difficult to pull, remove the side cover, chain, bar and retest. If still not right (remove sparkplug), remove the muffler and make sure that the spark arrest screen is clean and verify that the cylinder and piston look clean and smooth by looking into port. You can clean the cylinder by spraying wd40 and pulling the rope untill it all comes back out. Verify that the rope pulls smoothly before you reinstall the spark plug. If all looks good, reinstall muffler and retest. If the compression is normal, it should be rather hard to pull thru the compression stroke. Reinstall bar and chain for final test.

I have a wild thing. the rope pull starter is very hard to pull. when i take the spark plug out it is easy to pull. the saw was not used for about 4 years until yesterday. it ran for about 45 minutes fine....


one piston ring has expanded now having no or a very fine gap increasing the compression ratio causing this to happen. When the spark plug is removed it is very easy to pull on the cord in any means. A inspection is due of this engine or a new chain saw is needed

Chain saw won't start - pull starter pulley hard to pull?


If it worked fine the last time you used it, then pull the spark plug and try pulling the rope. See if it's easier or if gas shoots out of the plug hole. I've seen this happen when the diaphram in the carb goes bad from sitting over winter. It loads up the cylider with fuel and makes it very difficult to pull the rope. If there is no fuel in the cyliner and it's still hard to pull, make sure there is nothing binding the clutch/sprocket. I've had chucks of wook lodged in there that caused it to bind the crank output, which resulted in a hard pull on the rope as well.

This is my second wild thing. I wore the first


Hello Ms Weem:
Will the starter cover from your first Wild Thing fit?
Have you looked at the starter cover on a different new Wild Thing (demo)? Is it like yours?
Are you releasing the starter rope with it extended?
Yours is the first problem of this type I've heard for your saw. There is no pulley guide or starter rope thimble I'm aware of. I'd think a small nylon or teflon bushing for the starter rope could be fabricated by a machine shop but it would be at your expense. HTH

Starter rope will not retract.


inside the rope pull housing is a flat spring,it may have come loose from its anchor, its an easy fix...unscrew the 3 screws on housing, lift off housing, and the rope pull is inside the casing, you will then see if its broken, or just come off anchor, 10 minute job if its just loose......
