The wetness, does it smell like the gas mixture. If so, one of the gas lines most likely has a crack keeping the gas from flowing to the carb which makes it quit running. When you prime the blower, this is when it will run for only a few seconds? This is because the primer bulb is taking gas and shooting it straight to the carb.

Acts like it's not picking up gas. will run as you spray into carb.

Dirty carb. If it has a fuel bowl take it off and clean it out and clean the fuel jet that has little holes in it. I use an air compressor or a real fine wire.Try this before tearing it apart.

Poulan 2150 chain saw starts after priming and dies after a few seconds

Take the exhaust off so you can see the side of the piston, if it is scored or damaged it means it has probably been run without oil added to the petrol.
That can cause the problems you are having, if it is throw it away, its not worth repairing

On these types of motors that could be the problem, another thing to check is the primer bulb. I have had a primer bulb that had a small crack in it which went undetected for a while. These types of motors do not have a fuel pump and they work on a siphon type mechanism, if there is an air leak dealing with the gas tank anywhere, that is your problem.

Was working fine, then started to work at half force then just quit. Good fuel supply.

Try checking the fuel filter and try the air cleaner, if this is a mixed gas rig you may have the gas mix wrong. Pull out the spark plug and look to see if it's wet. if it's wet you have to much oil, if it's a 4 stroke you have a air problem, after cleaning out the air cleaner and drying the plug ans lightly sand the tip of the spark plug and wash off, try starting it, if it starts and runs your good to go, be sure the governor control arm has not fallen off the governor control arm. If you need more help just post a reply back.
