Question about Poulan Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin

1 Answer

My saw chain will not turn when throttle is pressed. I can barely turn the metal wheel that the rear chain loops around with a pliers. Should I attempt to take it completely apart to see for obstruction or is it frozen-up.

Mornin' Bob;
Did you ensure the chain brake is disengaged? Grasp the forward most upper handle (hand guard) and move it toward the nose of the bar (forward). Did it click? If no the brake is engaged. Move it slowly aft (it may require some force at the rear extreme to latch) until it clicks. Wear gloves and try to rotate the chain. If it latched and you still cannot rotate the chain please post back (below), and we will explore further.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
Lou

Chain saw starts but cuts out as soon as i press trigger


This I just a wild guess but here goes.
Most chain saws have a on off switch located fairly close to the throttle. The switch kills the engine by grounding out the wire attached to it. If the insulation has been rubbed off the wire and the metal linkage for the throttle touches it it will short the wire to ground and kill the motor the same as the switch. Remove the air cleaner cover and check wires for bad spots .tape up any bare spots and relocate wiring away from throttle linkage if necessary .
Hope this helps.

Elu tgs172 motor stopped running and makes whirring noise and will turn very slowly if the saw blade is turned


Sounds like a worn out bearing.
Instead of the shaft turning concentric with the outer bearing, it roles around in the worn bearing like the wheel of a stunt car going around a loop-de-loop --except the relative sizes are closer so it makes a lot of racket.

That Elu is a cool saw concept. They came out in the 1960's before commodity Miter saws hit the market so big. I've used one before.

I suspect the bearings can be pressed out and replaced. Take the saw to a motor repair shop and you might get them replaced for $15 a bearing. There's one bearing at each end of the motor.

With the cove off you should be able to turn the sprocket easily, if not the brake is on, grab the hand guard and pull it fully back toward the rear of the saw until the brake clicks and the drum can be turned.

Replace chain onchainsaw


As you do not say what model this is we will talk about generic replacment, start by making sure the chain brake ( if fitted ) is off, do this by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle, next remome the nut/nuts holding the side cover on, wind the chain adjuster screw fully back and remove the side cover, loop the chain over the nose of the bar and take away, loop the new chain over the sprocket and lay around the guide bar, making sure it is in the bar groove,the sharp edge of the cutters on the top of the bar should face away from the saw ( as you look at the saw the chain turns clockwise ) if the bar adjuster pawl is in the crankcase make sure it sits through the hole in the guide bar, if the adjuster pawl is in the side cover make sure this enters into the hole in the guide bar as you re fit the side cover, re fit the side cover nut/nuts finger tight, turn the adjuster so as the chain touchea all the way around the guide bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar, now re tention the chain if required, now lift the nose of the guide bar and fully tighten the nut/nuts, run the saw, there will be an initial stretch, so re tention as required, do not over tention the chain, it should pull around the bar by hand readily but touch the bar rails, not sag on the bottom of the bar.

How to replace a missing throttle push rod 141 husky???


It is very simple to re fit, you only need to lift the top cover off, the hooked end of the rod just engages into the hole in the throttle spindle, the other end with the plasric sleeve just sits into the groove in the tank unit, and is held down by the top cover, the part number of the rod is 530029869 the plastic sleeve is part number 530029863

How do I refit chain


Start by removing the side cover held with one or two nuts ( make sure the chainbrake if fitted is de activated by pulling the hand guard fully back toward the rear of the saw until there is an audible click ) if the chain has de railed you need to check for damage to the drive links, file away any burs, or fit a new chain, screw the chain adjuster fully back, assemble the guide bar onto the bar bolts and push fully back toward the rear of the saw, loop the chain over the sprocket and into the guide bar rails with the cutter teeth on top of the bar facing away from the saw if the bar adjuster pawl is in the crankcase make sure it fits into the hole in the guide bar, assemble the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover make sure this lines up with the hole in the guide bar ( adjust the pawl screw if required ), assemble the bars nuts finger tight, now adjust the pawl screw so as the chain sits snuggley around the guide bar, pull the chain around the bar with a gloved hand to make sure it is sitting into the bar and sprocket correctly, lift the nose of the guide bar and tighten the bar nuts.

In the wheel gear adjuster for chain does not thighen chain when turning wheel like little gears are not matching up, what would be wrong?


The three hundred series saws have side adjust consisting of a small assembly, if the gears are worn it will require replacment, the hobby saw ( 235/236/240 ) had a plastic gear on the early models in the side cover, this has now been replaced with a metal gear, the semi pro saw has the assembly in the crankcase, this will require removing the clutch sprocket and bar plate to gain acsess to it.

Chain came off


remove side cover of chain, loosen bar nut, there is a screw on the front of the saw under the sawdust and oil. Turning it one way tightens the bar. The other way loosens it. Loosen it til you get the chain back on, then tighten it til there is about 1/2" slack in the bottom of the chain between it and the bar. By the By, semi tighten the nut before any major adjustments, then adjust the chain to above and tighten bar nut. You should be set to go. BE CAREFUL! Dont forget personal safety!!!
