1. Look at the IPL it may require special tools.
2. A length of starter cord or nylon rope may be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and be cut when the piston rises.
3. It is probably a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
Let us know how it worked for you. GL

I borrowed a friend's POULAN 14" ELECTRIC


Remove the side cover nuts and the cover, wind the bar adjuster screw fully back, it may be in the cover, or on the front of the saw, push the guide bar fully back toward the sprocket, loop the chain ocer the sprocket and lay it around the the guide bar, make sure the cutters on the top of the bar rail are facing away from the saw, this will make sure it is the correct way round make sure the bar adjuster pawl is engaged into the hole in the bar, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover, replace the cover making sure the pawl engages into the hole in the bar, refit the cover nur finger tight, adjust the adjuster screw so as the chain fits snug fully around the bar, loft the nose of the bar and fully tighten the cover nut, with a gloved hand pull the chain manualy around the bar to make sure it is fitting in the rails and the sprocket correctly.

Chain does not rotate around bar. Chain brake seems to engage/disengage as intended.


With a gloved hand can you manually pull the chain around the bar? if not the chainbrake is still engaged, pull the hand guard fully back to the top handle until you hear the click from the brake mechanism, if the chain does pull around manually then there is a problem with either the cluch or the sprocket, remove the side cover, check the clutch for damage, remove the drive sprocket and check the drive teath are not badly worn allowing the chain to slip within it, replace parts as required.

Why would a drive sprocket on a poulan wild thing 18" chainsaw wear completely out in less than 35 hours use?


This will happen if your bearing goes out or if you install a chain that is damaged on your saw. If the chain is in bad shape, it puts extra stress on the sprocket, thus making it wear out quicker. Same goes for your bar. Although noone normally does, it is "best" to replace all 3 items at the same time. Usually, though, if there is no visible damage, it's ok to replace just the worn out piece.

You can find replace bars, chain & sprockets for your saw at partsbuggy.com.

Try the easy solution first and post back if this does not solve the problem:

Insure your chain is on the teeth of centrifugal clutch sprocket correctly. It is easy to have it either on the inside of the sprocket or on the outside of the sprocket. If it is not on the sprocket teeth, it will not turn the chain.

I HAVE A POULAN PRO 260 42cc 18 inch THAT IS 5 yrs old REPLACED BAR AN CHAIN . WENT TO CUT SOME TREE LIMBS CAN NOT EVEN MAKE ONE FULL CUT AN CHAIN COMES OFF AFTER 4 TIMES WENT AN RENTED ONE.


Remove the new chain and compare it against the old one. Do the new drive teeth match the 'pitch' of the old chain? If incorrect, the chain cannot be adjusted properly and will 'climb' over the sprocket due to the chain teeth not matching the teeth on the drive sprocket. Getting the proper chain is the answer in this case. Hope this helps!

Chain and sprocket won't move. Poulan P4018WT


Poulan P4018WT Gas Saw Type 2 link below (may not be your saw - 5 to choose from):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/P4018WT-Gas-Saw-Type-1/75.P4018WT-Gas-Saw-Type-1.1.59.1.html
It has an inboard clutch. If this is your saw remove the clutch cover, bar,
chain and inspect the chain brake linkage within. Is the brake band tight against the clutch drum? If yes grasp the forward most upper handle and pull it aft (may require some force at rear extreme) until it clicks (a keeper nests in a detent). Is there a little clearance between the brake band and clutch drum? Can you spin the clutch drum now? If yes reassemble your saw.

Make sure the chain brake is not engaged.Pull it toward the handle until it latches.Also check for sawdust under the chain sprocket cover.Adjust the chain to remove slack but make sure you can still move it by hand.

Chain sprocket


I looked at a breakdown for the 42CC not sure if the same one or not but it appears that the chain sprocket is held on by an Eclip and behind that a flat washer. If this doesn't look like yours give me the model number and I will research another breakdown
