SOURCE: poulan bvm pro 200 gas blower not getting gas

As a service center for Poulan products the usual problems for not starting I see is compression or the cylinder has come loose from the crankcase. Compression needs to be 115 psi minimum. If you remove the plastic muffler cover you can see the cylinder-crankcase joint. Wiggle the spark plug to look for any movement at that joint. If there is any movement the cylinder screws are loose.

Poulan has an excellent 2 year warranty and any service center should be happy to repair it under warranty for any problem.

SOURCE: lost my manual for my poulan pro 255 chainsaw the

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

SOURCE: trying to get my poulan

How do you know that the coil is bad? Have you checked it with an inline spark tester? It is very rare for this model to burn up an ignition module.

Please check for spark with an inline tester. If there is no spark with that tester, then disconnect the on/off switch and retest. If there is no spark with the switch disconnected, then indeed the module is faulty.

To access the module, the engine has to be removed from the case. Start on the right side and remove the muffler cover and muffler. This is a good time to visually inspect the cylinder. Look into the exhaust port with a flashlight and look at the piston. If there are scratches/scoring on the side of the piston or cylinder walls, then the blower is probably not worth repairing.
On the left side, remove the air filter cover, then remove the filter base (carb cover). This will expose the carburetor. Remove the 2 fuel lines leading to the carb, and then the throttle linkage and remove the carb. Next, remove the carb mount.
Now, remove the 15 or 20 screws that hold the plastic case halves together. The lower hinged cover will have to be releases before the case will seperate. Once you have the case apart, the engine can be removed. The ignition module is now exposed and can easily be replaced.
To set the proper gap of the new module to the flywheel, use a clean and dry business card. Lay the card across the magnet of the flywheel and place the module against it, then install the screws and tighten up the module. Remove the business card.
While you have the blower down this far, check to make sure the cylinder is tight against the crankcase. This model is prone to having the cylinder come loose and will effect compression.
Reassemble in reverse order. Take pictures as you go to aid in reassembly. If the blower is more than a couple of years old, I would recommend to replace the fuel lines at this time. It will save a repair down the line.
You will need allen wrenches, phillips screwdriver, T15, T20, & T20 torx, a large, clean workspace. This is not a repair for the beginning mechanic, but with patience, it is not too difficult.
Good Luck !

Sounds like your drive gears on the starter are shot.

Tines wont turn handle grip flopped down no spring tension

Could be your cable has broken or come undone or the spring has broken. I had to replace my cable and had to order this cable and I was in a hurry so I picked up a cable for a lawn mower cut it in half and got a package of wire sleeves and put them on and crimped them with a vice grip.
Machine works good now.

My poulan snow blower keeps breaking sheer pins in the wheels,

1)try replacing them with a heavy duty "roll-pin"
these are available from auto parts stores.
two types are available.
first is the "single-roll",second is the"multi-rolled"with many layers to it.

try both they're cheap.

2)try not hitting things with the blades
3)dont force the machine in heavy wet ,or frozen icy packed snow.
