    Look around your area, find the chainsaw mechanic that has little hair and what is there is gray or white, and has been at it his entire life. Take the saw to him and ask him if he thinks it possible. If yes ask the cost. A new Poulan P4018 (there are better models) can be purchased for about $160.00. That is about 3 hours of the mechanics time. Is it worth the modification?

    There is a pretty good chance someone at Arboristsite has overcome the filter non-availability problem for your saw.

Poulon pro 18" smoking

The only way a two stroke can smoke is either it is running far too rich ( possible blocked air filter ) or there is too much or incorrect oil in the fuel, if the oil tank for the chain is sepereted from the crankcase by a gasket, it maybe the gasket leaking and allowing chain oil into the crankcase.

I have a model 306A poulan chainsaw will not start. It will fire with starting fluid. I am not sure how to adjust the air fuel mixture screws properly can you help?

I'm guessing that its not the screws. The screws are typically set at 1 1/2 turns out for initial setting. More likely that the carburetor needs a rebuild. The carburetor on a small 2 stroke has a fuel pump within. If it goes bad it wont run. The other thing you can check is the fuel line inside the carburetor. Many times when the fuel line gets old it cracks and the carburetor just pulls in air. Open the fuel tank, dump out the gas and look at the fuel line. Make sure the filter is still attached.

My Poulon blower begins to start but then dies? I tried changing the spark plug with no luck.

The carb probably needs to be rebuilt. There is a very fine screen in the carb that gets clogged up. When it is clogged it actually looks more like a metal plug than a screen. Even with a filter in the fuel tank dirt will make its way to clog this screen.

Having hard time with new poulon 18" chainsaw starting.

Since you have good spark and good gas the only things left to check are the air filter and the carbeurator. If the air filter is dirty, replace it. While you are at the auto parts store also pick up a can of a gasoline additive called seafoam which will keep your carb. clean. Finally get a can of spray carb. cleaner and put a couple short squirts directly into the air intake which is right there when you remove the air filter.
