Question about Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"

1 Answer

Same problem here, only with an old 305.

It doesn't get a lot of use either and worked fine the first few years I owned it. Now, though, it leaks sometimes large amounts of oil from the area where it is supposed to feed the chain. Seems to have something to do with the seals in that area, but I haven't been able to get to them (yet).

Remove the bar and chain and clean the port where the oil comes out of the engine. Clean the holes at the back of the bar on both sides including the small ports that pass oil into the chain slot. Blow them out with compressed air if possible. Clean the chain slot and oil the tip sprocket if it has one. Make sure the mounting faces of the bar are clean and smooth finish.

For oil leaks:
------------------
1. Check that the sump nut is properly tight.
2. For such an old vehicle, there will be minor leaks as seals give away after so many years of use. What you can do is use a thicker engine oil. For example if you are currently using 10w40 then switch to 20w50.

For knocking:
-------------------
1. If its a diesel, it can be a case of adulterated fuel. Are you getting lots of black smoke on revving? if yes then your engine needs some work.

2. If its petrol, it simply needs timing adjustment and other fine tuning and it should be fine.

You can use any 305 motor. Like you said you will have to exchange parts from your old motor to the new one. Just make sure you don't go to far back, because the old 305's don't have the injector ports. Then you would have to replace the heads also.

Hello, I fell the same way buddy. Sorry to here about your Night Vision monocular? But Tasco NV monocular is manufactured in Russia. It seem you got a few year out of your NV devise...7 years is very good. The biggest thing that goods bay is the Russian manufactured image intensifier tube. There are cheap. This is about 85% of the monocular problem and 90% of the cost. Two items that viewed as important with NV devises. The case, and the image intensifier tube. Now, if you have Russian optics above 50mm for the front lens then on could consider that the optics are another cost. Auction it off on eBay as "doesn't work, parts only" Sorry, and I wish you luck...GB...stewbison

My 305 unit will not turn on. It has been sitting on the charger for 3 days..Is there a reset option? It is only 2 months old, but is a refurbished unit. It was working fine the last time it was used.


try pressing the mode and power buttons together although you may lose your data, if this does not work leave it off the charger for a few hours and then try to start it,, this happened to my olde 305 and after leaving it overnight it started again....they are sometimes tricky

Won't turn on...hear the beep, and screen works.


Exact same problem for me on the exact same day (2-sep) as well - freaky! Unit was out of battery and I charged it but that was the last time I managed to get it working - charging it now to see if it makes any diff. Actually with mine I hear the beep and the initial splash screen shows for about 1 sec and then that's it - it seems to go off again. I think it's something to do with the battery as it seems to work when connected to the charger - not a whole lot of good to me!
