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.
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. Over a period of time oil will separate from gasoline.
A clogged air filter will starve the engine of oxygen, causing the engine to die at full throttle. A clogged air filter will often cause your engine to idle rough as well. As part of your normal maintenance routine, you should check the air filter for heavy build-up, and replace if necessary.
The fuel line may be clogged from stale fuel deposits, more reasons to cause your chainsaw to cut out when applying throttle. If a fuel line is cracked, it will leak gasoline and draw air from outside into the fuel line. If the line is leaking fuel, it needs to be replaced.
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 stoichiometric mixture for a gasoline engine is the ideal ratio of air to fuel that burns all fuel with no excess air. For gasoline fuel, the stoichiometric air–fuel mixture is about 14.7:1 i.e. for every one gram of fuel, 14.7 grams of air are required.
If the filter becomes clogged, not enough fuel will reach the engine for it to run properly. Because your chainsaw will idle, but dies when it is revved up to full power, it means that the filter is only partially clogged; it will allow enough fuel to the engine to run on idle, but not enough to sustain full throttle.
Throttle control lockout

This prevents the accidental opening of the throttle. The throttle control is locked in the idle position when the lockout is not pushed in by your right hand gripping the rear handle.

Saw needs new gas line how do you get line threw hole

Wow you have embarked on a difficult road, That little hose is a bugger to get through. I use a staright pick, it WILL poke holes in the new line, so dont cut it until you are done. The way I do it is take a lighter or match and heat the line at the end, ( dont work about melting it), you can do it for an inch or so. After it gets hot…..strech it…(use gloves or pliers..it’s HOT). After you deform it it will make it easier to jam through the hole. The use a pair of forcepts to grab it and pull it through (use some penetrating oil to help it slide). Once your through pull it out past the fuel opening ,so the good line is about 2 inches outside of the tank, this will allow you to put the fuel filter on.

The vent line just need to get into the tank, no specific amount need to be in there.

Hope this helps
