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: The spark plug gap on all products is . 025-inch.
The coil spring absorbs the shocks applied to the front idler when the machine meets an obstacle. In addition, it corrects the tension on the chain by injecting grease into the cylinder. This occurs through a control valve that allows the recoil spring to move forward thanks to the hydraulic pressure.
Install a safety tip that covers the nose of the guide bar on the saw to prevent contact with the kickback zone. The tip must be removed for making bore cuts (pocket cuts) or for cutting wood thicker than the length of the guide bar.
A spring that is placed at the rear of the bolt of a automatic or semi automatic gun, that is utilized to take in or contain the recoil.

Poulan pro 18″ saw locked up.. help
ANSWER : I had the same issue with two of these Poulan 18″ saws. I took the first one back as it never pulled to start. The second just happened today. I took the bar and chain off, then unscrewed the casing around the pull start. When I tried to manually move the fly-wheel, I couldn’t do it. After trying to take the fly wheel off, I discovered that the small black piece just to the side of the fly-wheel was pushing up against the fly wheel. I pushed this piece back while tightening the screws that had loosened around it. The pull and fly wheel have no interference now and it works like new. Hope this helps.

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.
