Did this video help you?

Jeanette Nixon: I have a Poulan Pro PP4018 and can not get it to start.. I have changed all lines and filters and replaced the carburetor, removed and cleaned the muffler, changed the spark plug checked for spark and spark is good. Ive checked the compression and thats fine......im at my wits end with this thing... can someone please help

dyllon591: I have a ? I have ha poulan p3314 and it cuts in and out at full throttle I've ajusted the carburetor but nothing

ghettohillbilly1: We have this same saw 15 years old,cut atleast 40 cord or more of wood, started running bad, i rebuilt the carb, ran better but still had issues, turned out the intake manifold had loosened itself off, tightened that and its like a brand new saw

Eric jones: Does anyone know where the ground clamp goes on these chainsaws? Craftsmans are the same model as this poulan. I can't find where the stupid clamp goes. Hooks to the engine case under the flywheel and hooked to the ignition coil? 

dyllon591: Idk what is wrong with my saw it starts good throttles up for about 3to7 seconds then dies I've ajusted the carb and still the same the pistons are good compression is good spark is good I heard it needs a new carb it has me lines do u know what it could be the carb is in good shape been cleaned so what do u think it needs it is the same saw as that one cuz I'm not going to spend the money on it. it's the video that was on my channel u saw that's the one so can u help me? Do u know? 

Bruce Arnold: -Hey Dony your like me ..sick of those Chinese Zama Carbs..lol..But hardly worth over haulin..I noticed even Stihl is using them now..They must get a great deal on them from China..Putting the Walbro American carbs out of business..But nothing we can do bout it..I have one idling irratic..Suppose its a leak somewhere either seals or intake..Anyway keep up the good work Dony..Thanks for the show!. B.

ddalnz: Donyboy73 is the best. I have been intimidated by small engines for the last time! The USN taught me a lot about Electronics, but 2-Cycles have always kicked my B***. Thanks to the Small Engine Dr, my Poulan 2160LE is running hot, and ready for the backyard. Thanks a million, Don =]

Darwinpasta: Thanks for the video! A tip for anyone who doesn't have a splined driver, or doesn't want to buy one, take a small hex-end driver and put a wad of duct tape in it. It'll turn those two splined screws well enough to do the job. Mark the tops of the screws with white-out or something so you can keep track of position, the driver might slip a bit. Worked well enough to get my 2050LE going!

dyllon591: What kind of carb is on this chainsaw mine is a walbro carb but it has the fuel line connectors on the same side so the 2 on the right side when it's on I need to no so I can get a new carb

Edward Padilla: Great job. Thanks for the info.

Robert Rackham: Absolute novice at this. Your videos have my old Craftsman Chain-saw I inherited from my Grand-pa running like a champ now!He is no longer with us but that saw purrs like a kitten.Thanks for your patient and very informative videos,they are excellent!

Bob Green: Great Video Donyboy73. I have a Homelite 46 CC with a 20 Inch bar on it.I put a new Magneto on it and rebuilt the Zama carb. i just cant seem to get this running correct. it will start and run great when its cold. after cutting for about 10 minutes i have to readjust the carb. also if i shut it off and let it sit for 5 minutes it will NOT start!! any thoughts?

dyllon591: Hey need ur help I have a video on my channel it's the same saw need ur help the video is ur YouTube name

Dalton Mann: hey donyboy73 do you have a name for the round adjustment tool you show in the video? i went to mfy.com, but dont know what to search for?

dyllon591: I won't spend the money on it unless it's worth it and it has new fuel lines

Larry Bush: Hi. Very informative video. I'm unable to start my > 10 YO Poulan 2500 farmhand CS. I replaced the carburetor and fuel line (incl filter). I noticed that the fuel took a very long time to fill the line from gas tank to carburetor inlet. It seemed like the suction drawing fuel to the carb was very low. I would have expected the gasoline to travel up the line much more quickly. Replacing the fuel line was uneventful - no problems. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions? Thanks, in advance. Sawless in Worcester.

Collin Smith: I have a Poulan p3816 and I have also been experiencing tougher starts and the engine stalling out after hitting the throttle. I havent had a chance to do any of the tune-ups (spark flug, spark arrester, etc.) and just went to cut a few logs today and were having these problems. Would these carb adjustment be the solution to the problems i've been experiencing lately?

Rich Clay: Excellent advice. I have an old Poulan Pro 222 that would not idle and bogged down when I attempted to throttle up the saw. I order the adjustment tool you suggested. I reset the low and high to one and one-half turns out. I had to make an additional adjustment of a quarter out on the low, a little adjustment on the high, and I increase the idle a bit. The saw idled well and it was quick to respond to the throttle. I cut several saplings and limbs without any issues. Thanks for the advice:-)

dyllon591: It's the same one as the one in the video but can't find one on the internet 

buddyboy4x44: Excellent video. Thank you. I just obtained a used Poulan P3314 and the pull start was sticking. When I took it apart the coil spring flew out. I found several ways to rewind and install it posted on YouTube. I ended up using a winding round bent nails method. It worked well for me. How do you rewind and reinstall these springs?

Grant Kirsh: I am not able to get my saw to accelerate. When I pull the throttle it gains power and then dies out. I have been trying to adjust the L but can't seem to get it adjusted properly. I am a first-timer on adjusting a carburetor so I am not sure if I am doing it wrong or if there is some other problem. What advice do you have? I am working on a fairly old Craftsman that has brand new fuel lines, fuel filter, spark plug, air filter and Walbro carb. Great video, thanks for posting.

Jason Coren: poulan chainsaw automatically idles full speed on start up any ideas

dyllon591: Thanks donyboy

Rafael Monzon: Hay how do you adjust a 025 stihl chain saw follewed the manual and still having problems

David Thorne: hey, on my husqvarna 350 ... to not make it "Lean" you go out several turns then come back in some? I read a couple post but don't understand the rich or lean idea based on turns? Where is the start on a husky 350 it's the 44cc small block version! PS... YOU ARE A LIFE SAVER! i love your videos!

railbuggy: As long as the fuel lines are good on a 2150 you're ok. When the lines get old & go bad you'll have to throw the saw away. You can't pull the suction fuel line through the tiny hole in the tank. There's no way to grab it to pull it through since they hid the hole behind a ledge inside the fuel filler cap.

David Thorne: Hey hey hey! Dude...you wanna laugh at somebody...laugh at me! I am usta the echo trimmers so I start at about 2 turns out...right. Well My good buddy gave me this like new poulan chainsaw because the fuel line was shot from setting a couple years and he just bought a new one instead of fixing this one ... "ain't worth the time, he told me!" So, I clean the carb and throw in the line and filter and go to sawing...2250 model kicks-butt! Well took it along to do some limbing to save the husqvarna and it kicks and sputters on my won't run ... I just did a quick carb clean had some "stuff" on the screen somehow ... it was in the primerbulb or that line that I didn't change...right. So I'm all clean-up and ready to hear her scream and it sputters a bit then dies. Dude, I spent the next hour fiddling with card adjustments then came in to find the "how many turns out info" when I saw that you had a Video I was like ok ... The Sun Came Back Out! His video will help me. I went out and did my 1.5 adjustment and it coughed and sputtered and quit ... after 15 more mins. of adjusting and pulling I'm ready to bash it with a hammer! Then I thought to myself, wonder if the gas line is funky or something...unscrewed the cap ... and what do you know..NO FRIGGIN' GAS IN IT! I'm a dummy! The primer pump put just enough fuel to let it run/sputter/die. I filed it and started at 1 1/2 turns ... running great! LOL

thebaron44: what is the start setting for the L and H screws? one turn open ? 1 1/2 open?

Mike Urig: My poulan idles but when you pull the trigger it dies. Also I found that both screws were 7 full turns out. This saw was only owned by me and no one else used it. The lines were replaced along with the filter. Any ideas ?

Rick Punkris: Thank you very informative and well done thanks. Rick in Toronto.

Dragracer64: Thanks for making this video. I thought my poulan needed a carb kit but all it needed was a new fuel line kit and carb adjustment.With out the owners manual I wasn't sure which screw did what. Your video took the guess work out of it . My old saw runs like a champ now .

Ozane Lampley: Hey i have a poulan chainsaw that i need a new carb for. I can not find one anywhere. Every site tells me its unavailable. Any ideas on how i can find one? The chainsaw will not stay running, keeps dieing. I have put on a new carb kit and it still does the same thing. I think that there is something wrong/ stuck in the gas ports of the actual carb. can i soak the carb in something to dissolve the dirt or will i mess up the aluminum?

Andrew Wallis: I have a kamatsu g5000 runs only on half choke soon as I push in the choke the saw dies ?

Jordan Berghaus: Another place to look for carb fuel/air mixture adjustment is in the manual. I know that the Homelite I recently worked on followed a slightly different procedure. Great video by the way. I will definitely refer to this video for future adjustments.

mike che: Great Video Thanks

Benjamin Walker: Hey Donyboy73 I have a Poulan PB3416 sometimes it runs good other times it boggs down when i press the throttle. Lately its only been running on full choke, when I take it off choke it turns off! Do you have any idea what it can be?

Jon Macht: I have a poulan pro 222 chainsaw. It had bad gas in it and the fuel ate up the fuel lines. I'm trying to replace the lines but can't figure out where they go. Can you help? 

Simon Mures: Hi there Dony, I am a great fan of your videos and was wondering if u could give me advice on how to start my Craftsman 36CC 16 chainsaw. Good compression, excellent spark and good quality fuel, yet no ignition. It just drives me crazy....had no case like this before!!! Any idea would be of great use! Thanks in advance! Simon

HANG EM' HIGH: I was given one of these. It ran briefly once in my possession. Now, the starter cord won't pull. Does that mean the engine is seized (I have never heard of this on a 2 stroke), or is there something wrong with the cord mechanism itself? I have been putting this off since I don't yet own any Torx drivers. What should I do?

Eastendbiilythekid: Nice video man Great advice. I will try it this time Sober. hahaha
