Around 100 psi. most times you should be able to pick the equipment up by the pull cord.

My poulan weedeater starts easy but only runs a few seconds and shuts off. Replaced the fuel tank, fuel line and spark plut.

When this happens; unscrew the spark plug and see it's condition. It can be any color, it can be wet which indicates a carburetor needs adjustment. Also the compression of the cylinder needs to be measured.

What would be wrong with my weedeater when i press the primer bulb gas will start to come out of the gas cap ?

You could have a clogged tube from the primer into the carb, but it also sounds like the fuel tank is overfilled.

The compression has to be at minimum 100 PSI for a 2 stroke. Some will run under 100 PSI. Turn the screws all the way in very gently and back them both out 1 full turn. This will at least get you started.

Where can i get a McCulloch Chainsaw (Weedeater Poulan) starter pulley, item number 530057890? Places I have found dont ship to the U.K.

I can only offer a place to check on this. The name of the place is C and S Tractor Supply in Mankato, MN. If you contact them I bet they would at least be able to send you the right direction. If you look them up on the internet they are located on Riverfront street.

WeedEater Edger PE550 Starter Rope will not recoil

Order a new recoil spring from your suppier. It comes wound up. Remove the old part first usually four screws on the outside. Make sure the rope is fully wound then insert the new spring and reassamble. If it becomes unwound by mistake its a labourious job to rewind but can be done.
