Its a long time since i saw one of these, however, start by removing the starter cover screws and the starter itself, you need to remove the flywheel nut,1/2 spanner as far as i remember, strike the non magnet side of the flywheel with a suitable hammer, the flywheel should just pop off, remove the points back plate cover, this should just pull off, the points and condensor are all one peice, held with two screws, either clean the points or replace the assembly, the back plate will have slots to allow you to set the points gap, the gap is between 12 and 15 thousands of an inch, put a small amount of grease on the felt pad against the cam, refit the flywheel and nut, take care to re fit it onto the woodruff key properly, the air gap between the coil and the flywheel should be set at approx 0.5mm, re fit the starter and check for a spark.

How does the oiler work on a poulan micro xxv

The oiler operates off the crankshaft under a cover behind the sprocket. Find the oil port near the back end of the guide bar where the oil pump injects the oil onto the chain. That port could be plugged. Your little Micro probably does not have an adjustable oiler but just in case invert the saw body and see if there is a + and - in the casting just under the sprocket. If so, moving the slotted adjustment towards the + increases oil flow.

Sometimes sawdust enters the tank when being filled and plugs up the inlet to the oil pump. Keep an old 1" paintbrush with your oil can so you can brush away the debris before opening the oil tank to fill while in the woods.

We need a manual to help replace the fuel line on a Poulan Deluxe Super 25

You do not need a manual; exactly like the video that follows:
No primer or second carburetor connection. Be kind to the oil pump; they are no longer available.

All fuel components are on the "Ignition, Electrical & Flywheel" print here (filter and hose are available):

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 may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly:

I have poulan micro xxv chain not being oil when

wow thats an oldie, That saw uses a diaphragm pump located just above and in front of the clutch drum. Its going tobe hard to find one if its bad, Try cleaning out the oiler hole in the bar first, Then try running the saw without the bar and chain on and see if it pumps.Also check the oil pickup tube in the tank, It has a small screen on the end of it thats prone to sawdust clogging it. If it still does not oil then I suggest you locate the gasket and diaphragm for the pump before you take it apart. Remember to clean everything before reassembling,, Good luck

I have 3 older Poulan chain saws, XXV, 1800, and 2000, essentially identical saws. They all use a check valve from the crankcase to pressurize the chain oil reservoir. The check valve apparently uses an...

These oilers are called diaphragm oilers and work fairly well when the saw is new with great compression. As the saw wears out, the compression drops and a side effect is less oil pumped. The diaphragm is replaceable and it's not horribly expensive. Most good saws use a gear oiler - and even the newer Poulans use gear oilers. The gear oilers tend to have less problems and don't rely on engine compression.

Need to know gas oil ratio on poulan micro xxv deluxe

Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 6 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH
