Question about Poulan 18" Chain Saw Replbar (small Saws)

1 Answer

Poulan Model #2175, type 1: Saw would not crank after about 1 year of sitting up. I replaced fuel line and purge lines. After that saw started after about 6 pulls from cold start. After running for few minutes and shutting down wiould not start again. Let it sit up for a few days and it started today after about 5 pulls. Ran it for a few minutes and shut it down again. So far it will not start. Have installed new spark plug and checked spark which seems o.k. I'm at a loss. Any ideas would be appreciated. Mack

Replacing gas line


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):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP220-Gas-Chain-Saw-Type-5/75.PP220-Gas-Chain-Saw-Type-5.1.59.1.html

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.

Take some pics first then a small sample of the different fuel lines to your local chainsaw seller. A little extra is agood idea, I have not found a good fuel line stretcher and I have been looking. Probably a good idea to replace the fuel filter too.

Fuel lines have rotted off. need to replace then


Mr Tittle;
It isn't good but it's all there is.
What little fuel system system detail there is can be found here:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
If it is a 2375 WildThing find 2375LE Gas Saw Type ?. The last digit of your serial number should be a -1 or -2, the type.

  • The filtered hose from the fuel tank connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer, the output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer bulb (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill the bulb as the bulb reinflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns any excess fuel to the tank as it is depressed.

Routing runs from fuel tank to carburetor, (if equipped) through carburetor to primer bulb, bulb returns excess to fuel tank.

I think the second line on the carburetor is an impulse line and connects to the crank case. HTH

Find a model number that matches your saw.
Fuel lines run from the tank to the carburetor to the purge pump and back to the tank. Take extensive notes and a few digital photos as you go are a good idea.

Fuel line routing help.


You should have one line (with filter) going to the carb inlet & one line going to the bulb then back to the tank.
