You need to mix 3.2 oz of 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas. Some may disagree but a 40:1 ratio is better than a 50:1 mix. It gives more oil in the mix to keep the cylinder/piston lubricated. Any less and you will burn up the engine. With this new mixture you may need to get a professional to readjust the carburetor to this new mix.

Poulan chainsaw will kick back when trying to start it. It has a new cylinder and piston kit just put in it.

Sounds like the timing is too far advanced.
I'd be pulling the flywheel and retard the spark about 2 degrees.

Homelite chain saw csp 3314 will start if i tip petrol in spark plug home but wont stay running

There could be a problem with either the fuel line going to the carb or the impulse line that's connected from the cylinder base that generates the 'pulsing' action that operates the diaphragm fuel pump. Today's alcohol rich gasoline has a tendency to weaken or even rot the rubber lines causing fuel delivery issues.

If you don't use your saw for extended periods, dump the tank empty then start the engine and run the residual gasoline from the line. This will help extend the life of the fuel lines.

Another possibility could be a blocked fuel filter, but that is remote.

Have poulan model 3314. so much compression I can/t pull rope out. took spark plug out and pulls free. Pullled several time with spark plug out and choke out. put plug back in and can't pull rope.

It is posible the crankcase is full of fuel and causing a hydraulic lock, rmove the spak plug, turn the saw up side down, crank the engine until fuel stops exuding from the cylinder, also check it is the correct plug for the saw, if it is too long it could be touching the piston crown, if all else fails it will need a de coke as there may be excess carbon on top of the piston.

I brought a brand new homelite 33c-csp 3314 and my wife threw the manual out or i lost it ,how much chain and bar oil do you put in the oil part? i cant open pdfs cause somethings wrong with that thank...

Hi, basically you fill it up every time you fill up with two stroke fuel as it uses about 3/4 of a tank of bar oil to a tank of fuel. Regards Phil.

Hi i have a homelite chain saw csp 3314 and is not been use for tow years ,i try to start but refuses to ,it has a good spark ,i don't know why is not starting?? any help i will apresiete.

Most often this is because the gas has "soured" - it breaks down into a varnish compound, which is easily recognized by a foul smell in the gas tank that does not smell like gas.

You need to drain all the old gas. Pull the spark plug (clean it also- using a new plug is even better!), pump the primer bulb, and then pull the cord twenty times or so with no plug in the engine to try and purge all the old fuel. Get as much as possible out of the fuel system- the primer bulb should only have a drop or two at most in it.

Next, put in fresh gas along with a little carb cleaner- mix a gallon of gas with half an ounce of carb cleaner, plus whatever amount of two stroke oil you normally mix per gallon. Put the plug back in. Press the primer bulb 3 times, set the choke, and try to start. Make sure that you can see fuel in the primer bulb.

Your chainsaw will probably fire on the first or second pull, but not run (if it does start and run, GREAT!) On the third pull, most often it will start....if not....

Pump the primer three more times, and try the starting procedure again, and hopefully it will start, possibly running rough for the first minute.

If you still cannot get it started, pull the plug, clean and dry it, and try again... it is best at this point if you have a brand new plug to use it instead.

If your saw will still not start and run steady, you probably have a "varnished carb" - buildup from the gas souring has clogged the needle valve/orifice, and the float may be stuck. You will need to service the carb.

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

What is th petrol and oil ratio for a homelite petrol chainsaw 33c- csp 3314

Generally you're looking at a 50:1 ratio on most chainsaws and I wouldn't see any reason the homelite should be any different. Usually it's one 2.5oz container of the oil mixture to one gallon of gasoline but check the label to be sure.

CSP 3314. The clutch slips and cannot get a good cut. Any ideas?

Try washing out the clutch interior with carburetor cleaner from an auto parts supplier and blow out with compressed air.
