Question about Poulan Garden
Follow these steps:
Loosen and remove the starter cover's screws from the saw with the screwdriver. Pull off the starter cover.
Feed the starter cord out of the pulley two turns. Use the screwdriver to pop open the center clip in the pulley that holds the cord in place. This clip often looks like a cube.
Take the cord off the pulley through the hole where the clip was holding it down.
Feed the entire new starter cord into the same hole. Push the clip back down in place over the new cord.
Use the screwdriver to pop open the plastic starter handle on the end of the old cord. Take out the metal insert and untie the old cord from it. Throw away the old cord.
Feed the new cord into the starter cover, plastic handle and metal insert. Tie an overhand knot in the end of the cord. Do not tighten it yet.
Push the cord and metal insert back into the plastic handle, making sure the knot doesn't tighten. Pull the knot tight after they're inside the plastic handle.
Turn the pulley to wind the cord up. Tension the recoil spring by pulling the cord out two full turns and feeding it back into the pulley.
Set the starter cover back in place, and use the screwdriver to tighten the screws that hold the cover in place.

Use a screwdriver to remove the starter cover screws. The starter cover on most Poulan models is at the back end of the engine, near the muffler. Take off the starter cover and the starter cord should come off with it, because it's attached to the starter cover.
Pull out the entire length of starter cord from the pulley. Locate the tab in the pulley's center that locks this cord in place. Pop this up with your finger or the screwdriver. Pull the cord off of the pulley.
Use the screwdriver to open up the plastic starter handle off of the old cord. Untie the rope from the metal insert that's inside the handle. Discard the old cord.
Insert the new cord into the same center access hole that you pulled the old cord out of. Pull it all the way through and lock the center tab by pushing it down into place over the new cord.
Thread the new cord through the metal insert and the plastic handle. Tie a regular, overhand knot in the end, but keep the knot loose. Push the knot inside the handle, tighten it against the metal insert and close the handle over the knot and metal insert.
Wind the cord around the pulley all the way. Hold the cover in one hand and pull out the cord two full pulley rotations to set the tension on the recoil spring. Repeat if necessary to get the proper tension on the cord. Screw the starter cover back into place over the engine and thats it!!
