Question about Poulan Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin
How do you replace spring and rope starter on a poulan chainsaw, part numberp4018wt ?
A Poulan "P4018WT Gas Saw Type 1" IPL follows (may not be your saw):
If yours is not a "Type 1" it can be found here:
The dash number of your serial number is the type.
If the spring is unwound:
Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the starter housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection and both hands). I am right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely rewound. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. The video explains how to tension the spring.
