Question about Poulan Garden
I would abuse you to talk to a local small engine repair business and see if they will help you make the video. Other than that take the thing apart while using a vid camera. Manuals are not hard to come by.
Or send me the chainsaw and I will video the repair. As long as you pay for parts and shipping I will do it for free. Quazi.firstname.lastname@example.org

Its a missing or broken spring in the handle(trigger). If you look inside the handle you should see a circular spring around the post of the trigger. This spring returns trigger to idle position. If its missing or broken the trigger won't spring back.

SOURCE: Poulan Pro Clutch Removal
Yes there is a special tool to engage on the clutch. You can get it from the Poulan web site - I think it is part number 31112 - cost about $5. Maybe you can get by without it, by using a screwdriver and hammer, but the tool was easy and risk free. You also have to stop the piston, as the previous poster said. I Googled how to do this, and the consensus seemed to be that it's easiest to stick rope down inside the cylinder, avoiding pusing it through the exhaust port. That worked like a charm. I used a hammer to hit a wrench on the clutch tool to break it loose.
Many thanks to the original answerer for getting me on the track to solving this.

If looking for parts your OM is of little value. You can find an IPL (exploded parts list) here (only one PP255 listed):
Rear vibration (isolation spring)s appear to be item 5 or 59 on the "Exterior Assembly" print.
Poulan replacement OM.
There is contact us number in the OM if you want to contact Poulan. HTH
