SOURCE: Poulan Farmhand chainsaw chain tightens too tight for motor to move chain

Make sure the chain is not over tightened. When adjusting the tightness, ensure there is at least 1/8" of looseness by pulling up on the chain in the middle of the bar and releasing it. If a chain becomes overheated because of leaning on the saw when the chain is dull, or lack of oil on the chain, it may expand in the track and not turn freely.

SOURCE: chain saw

My name is Dennis and I'll try to be of assistance.
1) There is a primer line kit that is of smaller diameter and it goes from the primer bulb to the tank and terminates at the fuel pick-up assembly. There is also another smaller diameter line that goes from the primer bulb to the carburetor.
2) There is also a fuel line kit that is of larger line diameter that goes from the carburetor to the fuel tank.
That's a total of three lines Tank to bulb and bulb to carburetor two lines four places to connect. and tank to carburetor that is the third line and the remaining places to connect the second place at the tank and tha last at the carburetor.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating.
Thank you

SOURCE: I have an 18'' Poulan chain saw that won't start.

Take the wire of the spark plug,and see if it shocks you when the cord is pulled.If not there may be something wrong with your coil.(loose wire for example)If it does shock you,you may want to check out your piston rings,or the little air/fuel mixture valve between your carburetor,and cylinder.

SOURCE: poulan saw wont run

Clean the muffler spark arrestor screen and check the cylinder port for carbon build-up at the upper edge. Try presetting both carburetor H and L adjustments (from lightly CW stops) 1-1/2 turns CCW each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle wide open and adjust H CW until the engine speed increases, but still 4-stroking. Correct setting is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L for smoother running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed to keep the engine running, but doesn't try to move the chain. You may have to look closer at your carburetor if the above doesn't help. Go to:
for an excellent article (but poor pix) on Walbro carburetors, but related to most all 2-stroke carburetors. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: what is the gap for the ignition module on a

Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.

Hi scottk2050
Yes a pro can do it and you can also replace all your fuel lines on the chainsaw and not have to take it to a repair shop. Tge only thing you will have to do is maybe remove the carburetor.
Go to your small engine supply and get the fuel line...(take both sizes with you to show them)

I have poulan pro 16" the fuel line was decayed

sounds to me that the carb is dirty you need to disconnect the fuel lines and unscrew it from the chainsaw then unscrew the bottom carefully blow through the intake and exit pipes they should be clear if not then you can use a thin piece of wire to unblock them replace the bottom and re attach the carb push the bulb on the bottom and it should fill with petrol pump it a few times then try starting the chainsaw it should start

hope this helps

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!

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).

My poulan chainsaw 2.5 ci farmhand boggs out when choke is turned off?

Check for plugged fuel filter, hard/cracked/rotten fuel lines, plugged muffler and air cleaner, or loose fasteners on the carburetor. If no help, dismantle the carburetor and check the lower rubber diaphragm for hardness or cracking. Make sure to have fresh fuel mix in the tank. If the L jet needle has a slotted-head, a small screwdriver can be used to back out the adjustment CCW about 1/4 to 1/2 turn. If the adjustments have 'D' heads, you will need to take it to a servicing dealer that has the proper tool. Hope some of this helps!

Poulan #2550 farmhand saw, Put a new carburetor on saw still not getting gas to carb?

Try emptying the fuel tank, and with small flashlight inspect the fuel line and the sump pick-up screen inside the tank. You may be able to gently retrieve it with a stiff wire hook. See if the hose is cracked/broken of if the screen is clogged. If all is well, be sure there are no kinks in the entire fuel line. 
Hope this helps
