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 :

Chainsaw manufacturers include a spark arrestor on every model to prevent combustion byproducts from escaping the combustion chamber during saw operation and starting a fire. The arrestor is a screen that fits behind the muffler.
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 will evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and prevent the engine from starting.
Superchargers do not use the exhaust gas but are directly coupled to the engine. Engines equipped with superchargers require a spark arrester. Mufflers are designed to reduce the noise emitted by the engine and are not considered effective spark arresters.
It`s a component of the exhaust system of an internal combustion engine, such as used in OHVs, chain saws and generators, intended to slow and trap hot carbon particles in the engine`s exhaust so they can`t start a fire.
The Poulan brand name is used primarily for outdoor power equipment, such as chainsaws, lawn mowers, and leaf blowers, aimed at the mid-level consumer market. Since Poulan is owned by Husqvarna, the two brands often share technologies.
Who Manufactures Poulan Chainsaws? Husqvarna Corporation, a Swedish organization, is currently manufacturing Poulan chainsaws. It has several production facilities across North America and is headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. Husqvarna has been producing outdoor power products since the 20th century.
If it is not particularly dirty or encrusted, you can clean the chainsaw muffler using a cloth soaked in petrol or a high-quality degreaser. If the muffler is heavily soiled, you will first need to heat it in order to harden and burn up the excess debris, then scrape it off with a screwdriver.
Spark arrestors are screens that limit the size of particles sometimes found in the exhaust gases of outdoor power equipment.

Keep a fire extinguisher and shovel readily available at all times. Install and maintain an effectively working spark arrestor. Allow a hot saw to cool down before refueling.

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.

My poulan pro 42cc will not start i get sparks from spark plug,but when i put the plug back in i get nothing
ANSWER : If you have spark and compression it must not be getting fuel.
Put a little mix directly into the carburetor and try to start it. If it pops and doesn’t continue to run look at your fuel lines. I think you have a cracked hose. HTH

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.
