If it had fuel mix in it all that time, plan on cleaning the tank, and replacing the fuel line and filter. The carburetor will need to be disassembled, cleaned and probably re-kitted. Clean the muffler and replace the air cleaner if clogged or disintegrated. Check for spark when the plug is removed. If everything looks good, start the engine and check for chain oiling by running at speed for a few moments with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Hope this helps!

Several bar and chain combinations fit the 51 model saw. If your saw runs an H46 / H80 or H81 style chain you will need a 7/32" (5.5 mm)
If you are running a H21 style chain you will need 3/16" (4.8mm)
I just used 30 weight non detergent on my Still gas saw years ago.Mainly because it got used so fast.You might check your local bicycle shop cause they have stuff that stays on the chain better($10.00 and up).Just keep the chain sharp and don't overload it. Most any hardware store will carry some kind of chain oil.You could call a saw shop and ask them as well.I burnt up the plastic chain adjuster once because the chain was to tight ,had plenty of oil but chain was to tight.About 1/8 gap or a little less at the bottom the bar.Unplug , wear gloves and pull the chain around the bar to check for binding.

Your problem statement seems to be chopped off, but apparently, when you go to cut something, the chain just stops turning. Assuming that is so, remove the bar and chain, then wash out the interior of the clutch mechanism with spray carburetor cleaner. Let dry and re-assemble the bar and chain. Make sure the chain is being properly oiled by running the saw at speed with bar tip near some cardboard--it should leave thin line of oil after several moments. Make sure the chain teeth cut toward you on the bottom run of chain. Hope this helps!
If you saw is not a Poulan PP4218AV you can find your manual here (chain installation should be similar): CurrentModels http://www.poulanpro.com/node4043.aspx Type just the model numbers (choose the suffix after the list is provided). I hope this was helpful. Additional assistance can be found adding a reply below. Lou
OK. This is simple. Either the chain brake is engaged or the chain is too tight. Start by pulling back on the chain brake toward you. There should be a "click" if the brake was released. If the chain is still immovable, try resetting the chain tension.
1. remove the spark plug wire2. loosen the two clutch cover nuts3.hold the bar nose up and loosen the tension adjustment screw until the chain moves freely without becoming loose.4. tighten both clutch cover nuts with the bar held up.5. Pull the chain around the bar by hand. Loosen the adjustment if you feel tight spots.6. When the chain is properly tensioned,tighten clutch cover nuts securely. Do not overtighten!7. Check chain brake operation and release.8. Replace spark plug wire and operate saw. Hope this solution will Fixya.
