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

1 Answer

ON a Poulan 220 Pro all of the fuel lines are

On a Poulan 220 Pro 38 CC all of the fuel lines are broken and I don't know where to route the new gas line hoses. This has a purge button with two pipes for hoses and there are two pipes on the carburator, one on each side and I know one hose goes thru one of the holes to tank filter but not sure what hole, one to front and one hole to rear top of tank. On the purge ball I would think one would go thru hole to gas tank to siphon gas to carburator, does it make a difference which goes to tank and which goes to carburator ?

Your fuel lines are routed like the schematic below. I suggest you replace the filter, all hoses (2 different sizes), and the purge button (bleeder).
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3706813-2_cycle_fuel_system_repair
Let us start with the bleeder. The 2 hoses that connect to the bleeder are different sizes (Important). If the nipples are the same size connect a hose temporarily to one of them and place the free end in a small container of mix (please be careful with open gasoline and as soon as it is no longer needed put it out of harms way.). Squeeze the bulb if it blows bubbles that is the return side, it gets the large hose and attaches to a fitting on the tank. If it appears nothing happens but when released fuel is drawn into the bleeder it requires a short section of small hose and attaches to one of the carburetor fittings.
A second small hose goes through the tank and connects to the carburetor just like the video including the filter. It feeds the carburetor like it has since before bleeders were installed. I am not certain which carburetor fitting connects to the tank or the primer, please leave them long enough to swap until the saw is running. Logic says the upper most fitting (air bleed) goes to the primer but that is not always true. The Poulan drawing is deceptive it appears the filtered line feeds the bleeder it does not!!!

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best. Fuel components and part numbers are listed but are on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly.
A link to a Poulan "PP220 Gas Saw Type 5 follows (may not be your saw):

If your saw is not a Type 5 you can find the correct IPL here:

The dash number of your serial number is the type.

Change the fuel filter in a poulan 38-cc


It depends on how yours is set up, but you have to hook the fuel line with a piece of wire and pull it out the fuel cap side. If there's not enough line to do that, then you have to unhook it from the carb and pull the line through with a small pair of needle nose pliers.

I need to change the gas hoses for my Poulan 221


As I promised Felix an IPL for a Poulan "PP221 Gas Chain Saw Type 4" follows (may not be your saw):
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best. Fuel components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly: It is deceptive it appears the filtered line goes to the primer, it doe not! It connects to the carburetor input. Trace your existing lines and they will bear my fuel schematic out.

I need the fuel line routing or diagram for a Poulan Predator 2150 LE. I have parts list but it does not depict the fuel detail I need.


Jimmy there are no Poulan drawings with fuel system detail worth the ink it takes to print them, but that is all there is.

Routing runs from fuel tank to carburetor, (if equipped) through carburetor to primer bulb (once compressed bulb draws fuel as it returns to normal) , bulb (as it is compressed) returns displaced to fuel tank. HTH
