Saw is a 14 inch model 1950. Saw starts but won't run

Check the fuel filter, air filter and muffler for plugging. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel after several pumps? Hope this helps!

How do I get inside the fuel tank of my poulan 1950 to replace the line in it?


To replace line you use tag wire or similar item to pull the fuel line through the tank fittings.
First you install tag wire through the tank fuel line open and out the fill hole. Then attach this tag wire to the fuel line and pull the line back through the fuel line opening. You do this for both the pickup and the return lines. Mark your return line about an inch from the end so you can install it at the proper placement. As pull this return line through the fuel line opening stop when you reach the mark. Now with both lines installed cut them to desired lengths to connect to the carburetor and the primer.
Here is a picture of how connect the tag wire to the fuel line.

Need to know how to connect the gas lines from the primer bulb to the carburetor on a poulan woodshark model 1950 chainsaw


The lines should be connected to push fuel into the carburetor. The output (overflow) of the carb is routed back into the tank. So, two lines in the tank, one is an overflow (return) and the other is the suction. On the primer one line from the tank and the other to the carb. Connect so as to "push" fuel into the carb when the primer bulb is pushed.

Change all fuel lines in a McCollough Chain Saw, new fuel filter. How far does line from the primer go into the fuel tank. Just on edge, barley or in a few inches? I get it started but it goes off after...


It should be as illustrated on the link.
Typical Fuel System (Primer Bulb and fuel lines may not apply)
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3706813-2_cycle_fuel_system_repair
The line with the filter needs to be long enough to reach all parts of the tank as the saw is moved. The return line is not a critical length probably mid tank. Do you have the filtered hose feeding the primer and not the carburetor? That will cause what you describe. HTH

How do I install fuel lines on a poulan chain saw model 1950?From carburator to primer,from primer to fuel tank,two connections on each.


The smaller line comes from the fuel filter in the tank to the nipple on the side of the carb with the cover w/ 1large screw in the center, the other small line goes from the other nipple on the carb to the primer bulb, the larger line goes from the other nipple on the primer bulb back to the tank, and only gets pushed in about 1/2-3/4" into the tank. Hope this helps.

Echo 452VL chainsaw won't start


yes it does.the filter is in the fuel tank on the end of fuel line.if it isn't the fuel line needs to be replaced and a new filter installed.there is most likely some of the fuel line in side the carb. there is a small filter inside and it usualy collects the broken fuel line there. take the carb apart oppiset of the diaphram.usualy it's the side with only one screw.carefully blow the **** from it and the saw will get fuel again and start
