Change out the primer bulb and the small gas lines going to carb and primer. One of these has a small crack to let air get by and this is how you get a flat primer bulb. Pick the kit up at lowes for $6-8.

I've got a poulan wild thing. That was running perfect until the primer bulb got a hole in and was leaking fuel. I went and got a new bulb, and in a hurry and stupidly put it in backwards. Pumped it u


You should have hurt anything, just remove and reinstall properly. Kind of hard to do this, but I guess its possible. If the new one is damaged get a new one. All it does is retain a small amount of fuel and always you to prime the fuel system

Carburetor change


Primer bulbs pull fuel from the carb, into the bulb and dumps it back to the tank, if you have re connected the hoses to the primer the wrong way around it will try to force fuel into the carb and make it flood.

Poulan 2150 chain saw starts after priming and dies after a few seconds


Take the exhaust off so you can see the side of the piston, if it is scored or damaged it means it has probably been run without oil added to the petrol.
That can cause the problems you are having, if it is throw it away, its not worth repairing

I need a routing of the fuel lines from filter to, primer-in, primer-out, to carburator, out of carburator, back to tank. this is on a poulan chainsaw, 2550. Mod 952-05138. please respond.MARRY CHRISTMAS.


There are two holes in the fuel tank, it does not matter which line goes to which hole. The lines should run as follows: One line from the tank should have a filter on it, connect this line to the primer bulb and put a mark on it with a sharpie. Another line should run from the bulb to the carb, and the last should run from the carb back into the tank. After they are all in place, pump the bulb and watch the gas in the marked line. If gas is flowing from the tank through the marked line into the bulb and on to the carb you are done. If gas is flowing towards the tank in the marked line or not at all reverse the two lines on the bulb and you're done.

Trying to put back together a poulan chainsaw and cannot figure out where the tubes go into the carborator


The line from the tank that has the filter on it's end is the main feed to the carburetor and goes to the upper port on the carburetor. The lower port on the carburetor goes to the primer bulb which is supposed to pull fuel from the filter to the carburetor and out to the primer, then it outputs excess fuel back into the tank. When the lines are connected correctly and fuel in the tank, pump the primer--it should begin to fill the bulb with fuel after several pumps. Usually, the primer ports are found by trial and error until it works. Hope this helps!

Where can i find the diagram for the fuel sysetem for a poulan


If the old lines are still attached, just replace one at a time. If everything is lying in a heap, then you will need to do a little sleuthing. Assuming the worst, begin with the line in the tank back end that holds the fuel filter (if it is old too--replace it). Be sure to use original rubber lines, not plastic. To connect the tank side of the line, you will need long hemostats or pliers to reach the tank fitting and the line must be long enough to allow the filter to be replaced from the opening. On the top side of the fitting, the line goes to the upper connection on the carburetor, but first run it to the primer bulb (which should be in good condition as well). Hook it either port, and attempt pumping fuel from the tank. If the correct port, it will draw fuel from the filter into the primer and expel it out the other port after about 3-6 pumps. If nothing, move the line to the other port and try pumping again. Once you get fuel to pump, then run a line from the open port into the tank for the return line. Remove the fuel line from the other port and attach it to the upper carburetor port. Run another line from the lower carburetor port over to the open primer port. Attempt pumping fuel again, this time pulling it through the carburetor into the primer bulb and expelling it back into the tank. All connections are just push-on and no cement required. Don't use more length than required for any section. Hope this helps!

Poulan P3400 Chainsaw Fuel Line Routing


If the saw has a primer bulb, then you require one line from it's output out to the tank return. Another line runs from the carburetor outlet to the primer inlet. Make sure that you use original rubber lines, not plastic replacements. The primer ports are found by trial and error--hook the filtered line directly to one primer port and leave the other port open. If the bulb is in good condition, and correctly connected to fuel, the bulb should fill with fuel after several pumps. If nothing, reverse the port connection at the primer--and pump test again. One of these two connections should allow pumping to occur. When you get pumping, install the tank return line to the empty primer port. Remove the filtered line from the primer and install on the carburetor. A new piece of line runs from the now empty primer port and connects to the output port on the carburetor. If the carburetor lines are correct, you should be able to pump fuel through the carburetor body and out to the primer bulb. If nothing happens, you may need to swap the carburetor lines, and you will likely need to service the carburetor. Hope this helps!

No gas to carb


There should not be a vent hose--it probably goes to a port on the primer bulb. Check the fuel filter for plugging and the condition of all fuel lines (they should be original rubber, not plastic replacements). Try priming the carburetor with the bulb pump--it should pull fuel into the bulb after several pushes. If nothing, check the condition of the primer bulb--it should be soft without cracks or holes.The primer is supposed to pull fuel from the tank's fuel filter, into the carburetor top section, pass into the lower section through the metering valve which is controlled by the diaphragm, then out to the input port of the primer and out the other primer port to return fuel to the tank. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for an excellent 12 page article on theory and troubleshooting of Walbro carburetors. Hope this helps!

Poulan 2150 put new fuel lines on geting gas trew line put the primer buld will not prime and somtimes gets stuck but will release win i pull it of carb


Check the condition of the primer bulb for hardness or cracking. If ok, remove the line that goes from the bulb back into the tank and try to pump fuel from the carburetor. If nothing, switch the position of the other line at the back of the primer and try to draw fuel again. If hooked correctly, the primer will pull fuel through the carburetor body filling all cavities and into the primer bulb. If still nothing, try switching the lines at the carburetor (it should not pump backwards through the check valves in the pumper chamber). If still nothing, switch the primer connection again. Some combination of line connections should allow fuel to be pumped through. When correct, reconnect the loose primer line to allow fuel to return to the tank. This is a good reason for replacing only one line at a time. Hope this helps!
