You need something non-magnetic. Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.
Card stock is usually 0.0085 - 0.0095"
If you still have no spark after assembly please reply below and I will happily assist you. HTH

Sounds loike its running lean, start by replacing the fuel filter on the end of the pipe in the fuel tank, if this does not help you need to richen up the mixture screws, unfortunayly you need a special toll to adjust the screws ( they have a spline, not a screwdriver slot ) the tool is part no. 530035560, once you have the tool unscrew the carb screws 1/2 turn on each and try again.

Gap between magnato


Use a clean and dry business card to set the gap from magneto to flywheel. It is almost the perfect (.006") gap setting.
Good luck!

I have this saw and really like it. Does the the primer seem to work? Most problems on these saws can be traced back to cracked fuel lines. Either tank to primer, primer to carb, or carb return back to tank. I would recommend it the saw it more than 3 years old to replace all the fuel lines. Total cost about $5. Buy your fuel line at Ace Hardware.

Chain slips off bar


I would suggest adjusting the tension and cleaning and debris along the chain path (guide bar).

Here's the manual for Poulan PP4218AV =>

http://72.3.225.179/manuals/165555e.pdf

Look at page 6-7 for instructions to adjust the chain tension and page 16 for cleaning the guide bar.

Here's the link to other Poulan Products =>
