How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Q: How do I mix gas and oil? A: Mix 3.2 ounces of Poulan 2-cycle air cooled engine oil to one gallon of fresh unleaded gasoline to obtain the recommended 40:1 fuel to oil ratio.
Use unleaded gasoline and two-stroke oil mixed at a ratio of 2% (50:1). 50:1 gasoline to oil ratio.
050 Gauge 3/8 Pitch.
Most modern chainsaws, string trimmers, leaf blowers and other small-engine two-stroke equipment recommend a 50:1 oil mix ratio, but some recommend 40:1 and older two-stroke equipment might even call for 32:1.
Cutting Power:The 42cc, 3 HP engine packs enough power to step up to almost any task for its size. Great for any farm and ranch work! Less Fatigue, More Productivity:Spring-assisted starting and a lightweight, compact design (10.8 lbs.) will help to greatly reduce the fatigue of operating this chainsaw.
Equipped with a 42″ cutting deck, powerful 452cc Poulan Pro engine, fender lever controlled 6 speed transmission, the Poulan Pro PP17G42 riding mower is a powerful machine packed into a compact size.
Most STIHL gasoline-powered equipment runs on a 50:1 mixture of gasoline and 2-cycle engine oil.
A 40:1 ratio has more oil to lubricate the piston and rings. The lubrication helps the ring seal better, creating more compression and power. But oil only partially burns in the engine and can leave residue behind (fouling). More oil means more residue.

Poulan pro 42 cc, no spark – Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"
ANSWER : Try diss connecting the earth cut out wire from the ignition unit and try for a spark again, this will rule out the switch and any trapped wires, re set the air gap between the unit and the flywheel to 0.3mm, if there is still no spark the unit is bad and will require replacment, they are normally only held on with a couple of allen screws, and either bolted to the cylinder or the crankcase.

Poulan chainsaw 18″ 42 cc, pro gas filler cap?
ANSWER : Yep they swell after a while and will not screw in or out!
Sand the threads down so that the circumference is reduced with a course file or plumbers cloth, chamfer the threads a bit on the edges. A new one will do the same thing after a while so just fix the one you have.
