This is a common problem on older Poulan models. Press the primer button 10 times and pull the starter rope twice, then pull the spark plug and examine it. If the plug is wet that means gas is definitely getting to the combustion chamber. Next thing is to use a compression tester. If you do not have a compression tester but have an AutoZone anywhere near you, you can get a loaner from them. Screw the compression tester into the plug hole and pull the start rope 4 times. If the tester reads anything below 90psi, you have a bad ring and will have to take the motor apart to clean the piston and ring or replace the ring.
Keep me posted on what you find, ok? I can walk you through the procedure to replace the ring if necessary. Good Luck!

If you push the bulb and note the port the gas squirts out... this is the short line. The other port should **** up when the bulb is released... this connects to the long line with weighted filter in tank.

SOURCE: new lines now wont start
Fuel Line Instillation: The longest, and sometimes smaller in
diameter of the two fuel lines, goes from the carburetor to the bottom
of the tank. Leave enough slack in this line so that the filter that
attaches to the end will rest comfortably at the bottom of the tank.
The other fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank,(about an inch). Make sure that you get the right size fuel lines. The plastic coupling goes on the end of this line, inside the tank. This keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.
(HINT): When feeding the lines through the tank holes, cut the lines at an angle. They will feed much easier into the holes. You can than cut them off square, once you know that you have enough to work with.
If you need further assistance, let me know.
