Question about Poulan Garden
Unless unit has some sort of compression release for easier starting, it is something that you will just have to live with.
Due to the high compression, it should have plenty of power after starting

Has it always done this or has it developed?
Some saws have a decompression button to make it easier to pull over.

What i have to occasionally do for a chain saw after it sits all winter is to put something like WD40 in the spark plug hole and crank it over several times. What happens to me is that the piston gets gunked up from the gas that ran down into it during the winter and it won't crank over hardly at all. This is probably your problem. I have also found that if i store my saws with the tank down, the gas cant get into the carb and do this. (Although it's better to drain tank).
If this has been a running saw instead of a stored one, you probably need a rebuild kit if the piston is scored.

On many riding mowers there are two wires that at the bottom of the carb bowl, these wires go to a solenoid which closes a valve so gas will shut-off when the start key is turned off. When this solenoid is bad it will not close which let gas keep going to the carb so the eng will bang through the carb or muffer. Hope that this will Help. Hugh Lyon

Set the gap as Drallim suggests then follow this to test the ignition system, the entire system.

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You do not have to bend up the electrode. HTH
