Question about Poulan Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin
Need to re-install recoil spring
Possible answer 1 (a very good description of tension adjustment is on the video in answer 2; about 1:20 into film):
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. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.
Possible answer 2:
