Question about Poulan Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin
Just lately the saw bogs as soon as any pressure is placed on the engine....even just normal throttling. It runs fine on idle. I have not changed any of the idler screws....yet. Any suggestions?
Jamie it sounds as though you have a fuel delivery problem. What little fuel system there is can be found here: (click "Go")
On the "Handle, Chassis and Bar Assembly" drawing.
This can be caused by a dirty or loose carburetor, cracked fuel lines, dirty air filter, plugged fuel filter, old fuel mix, and a few more things that aren't coming to mind.
If you attempt a repair take extensive notes and some digital pictures as things progress.
You can get it tuned up for about $40 at a good saw shop (Stihl, Husky, Etc), They do an inspection, change the plug, and adjust the carburetor. Explain your symptoms, ask for an estimate to repair & perform a tune up. If you do this (recommended) ask what oil/fuel ratio they used. Use the same ratio until the next time you have it tuned again. HTH
