The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, the output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill the bulb as it inflates).
The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs will help with reassembly. HTH

Over time, the spark arrestor can become clogged with soot. If the spark arrestor is clogged, the chainsaw may run stall or run rough. To unclog the spark arrestor, remove it and clean it with a wire brush. You can also replace the spark arrestor.
Replacing the fuel hose on your vehicle is going to take time and patience, and it could require getting underneath the car. It`s also going to take the right tools for the job.
For a 50:1 ratio of gas to oil, use 2.6 fluid ounces of oil per gallon of gas. For a 40:1 mixture, use 3.2 fluid ounces of oil per gallon of gas.

The carburetor might be clogged. A clogged carburetor is often caused by leaving fuel in the chainsaw for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the chainsaw engine to stall.

Replaceing fuel line in polan 3300 chain saw – Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"
ANSWER : Hi owjbhend…
Use a piece of wire and insert it into the fuel line, then bend a hook in the end and hook it over the end of the fuel line…lubricate the fuel line with some vaseoline very lightly…about the first one inch of the fuel line and then use your fingers to start the fuel line into the tank, once you have the fuel line in the tank give enough to hook the fuel filter to and so it can be dropped back into the tank.
Below is a drawing of how to route the fuel lines.

I have a 2150 poulan chain saw and my fuel lines are rotten and came apart, now I don’t know what line goes where can you help
me? I want to replace all of them.
ANSWER : You should have three hoses, the hose from the fuel tank with the filter on the end goes to the main fuel inlet on the carb, this is closest to the pump cover on the carb ( alluminium cover held with one screw ) the other connector on the carb has a pipe to the shortest connector on the back of the primer ( suction side ) the longer connector on the back of the primer ( pressure side ) has a hose that returns to the fuel tank, so the primer pulls fuel from the carb, and dumps it back to the tank

The saw starts up fine, runs fine but not for long. it runs for about 1 minute and dies. like it is out of fuel or sucking air, i noticed there is no filter on the suction line and there is another nipple entering the fuel tank which appears to need a hose on it , is this just a return line, or should the long line in side the tank press on to this nipple? thanks,
ANSWER : I’ve had my pp4218 for about 2 years and the fuel lines have rotted. I’m thinging from ethanol in the gas. However, I’m replacing them and cannot tell which lines go where. Does the large line from the bubble go to the filter and the little line return?

I have a poulan 2150 chainsaw and the chain never stops spinning. how do i adjust it to stop spinning when i am not cutting?
ANSWER : Firstly consult your manual regarding carburettor settings. There should be a high and low speed adjustment on the saw, often called or labeled as “L” and “H”. These are often located on the main motor body, closer to the handle on one side and require a screwdriver or similar to adjust. They might be buried and you have to look down the adjustment holes in the outer body to see the screws. Basically you need to adjust the “L” or low idle screw.Firstly, warm up the chainsaw and allow it to get up to temperature… The blade, as you say will probably be spinning still with hands off the throttle… Grab your screwdriver and adjust the “L” or low idle screw turning it counter-clockwise (at least on most saws) very slowly until the chain just stops turning on the bar. If you go to far you may stall the motor. You just want the chain to have just stopped moving on the bar, and that is your “L” setting position…Has to be done with a warm engine though.Please rate this solution on FixYa!Thanks.
