Finger tight. It will set itself with use. Besides you may need to remove it again some day. LOL. HTH

My poulan 4018wt has been a hard starter from new. It started to act up out of the blue and started shutting off halfway into the cut and didn't always want to idle right. So I changed the spark plug,

I'd say the most probable culprit is the fuel.... I'd first try dumping the tank out, mixing fresh gas with the addition of a fuel stabilizer and start the saw. It'll quickly vent any old gas in the line and should begin to run fine with the new mix. If not, consider returning it to the service center for adjustment.

Never use gas that has sit on a shelf for months at a time as it becomes 'stale' (for lack of a proper term). Todays 'formulated fuel' can be a cause a bit of a problem for some small engines. Anytime you refuel, shake the can to remix prior to filling.

The oxygenated nature of the blended gas sometimes causes the chain saws to run a little 'lean'...meaning too much air to fuel ratio which could be a portion of your problem. A lean running saw will run hot and scoring of the piston or cylinder wall is possible. Some finely tuned professional saws need carb adjustments between the summer blend and the winter blend gas.

Chainsaw won't idle- runs fast only

Gently Tighten the carb adjustment screw fully tight then adjust it out 360 (full turn) then again a further 180 ( half a turn) and your idle speed should be set correctly. Let me know how you get on

I bought a Poulan 42cc chain saw at a yard sale with the clutch taken apart. How do I fix it.

You do not provide a model number The following saw is most likely not yours but can be used as an example (may not be your saw):
For specific instruction I need a specific model. The example has an inboard clutch, I will assume your does as well and the entire clutch assembly was removed (did/does it have an oiler problem?). Use the IPL as a reassembly guide ("Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly" print) and reinstall all pieces up to the clutch drum. Watch the film it will help, I do not think anything needs to be torqued (left handed thread on clutch, loosen it to tighten it):

Install the remaining pieces. Different video also helpful:

The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.

Install the clutch cover and chain:

All poulan chainsaws can be found here:
The dash number of your serial number is the type.
If needed an OM can probably be found here:
Type just the model numbers (choose the suffix after the list is provided).

My Poulan Bar & Chain Oil gets used up very, very quickly???

That is excessive, make them repair it. Your saw is warranted for 1 year.
The IPL lists no oiler adjustment and the Operator's Manual doesn't mention any oiler adjustment.
If you using any Bar Oil (30 weight with stuff added to make adhere to your bar and chain) and not a light weight motor oil I recommend you contact Poulan and make them repair it. Anything you attempt may void your warranty, do nothing without an official OkeyDokey. Get names, dates, and times in an e-mail for any official OkeyDokeys and save a copy them somewhere a computer crash won't wipe them out.

Contact Poulan here: The dash number of your serial number is the type.
or telephone during normal business hours EST here:
Handheld (Chainsaws, Trimmers, Blowers, Edgers)

Have your chainsaw within easy reach, they will want your serial number.

Take the screws out of the cover to the recoil. After removing the bar and chain, take a racthet with the correct size socket which should be a half inch; put ratchet in tightening position. Attach a pair of vise grips to the inner piece of the clutch just outside of the threads that screw onto the engine shaft. You may need to grab the grab the vise grips with a crescent wrench as close to the clutch as possible. Grab the crescent wrench and the ratchet firmly and turn, that baby should come right off. I just took my clutch and sprocket off of a poulan model 2055 a week ago and I am getting a new assembly tomorrow from poulan.It's not really hard to do, you can do it. Hope I was helpful!
