Just for grins, pull the plug and pull the starter through a few times, If the Plug is OK , put it back in and try.. There is a plastic clutch dog in there that is 35 yrs old and other stuff too My FB is still on its original ignition set. I am on the 3rd dog. It is a 10 $ part. I'm just guessing. Mine has always started or at least popped by the 5th pull. . I bought mine back in '77. About the same time, my picked up a returned Sears saw ( Poulan) for about 25 % of what I paid for the FB He still has it . It is his trimmer. Just as reliable . My last job was replacing the string. It needs a new gas line, not the cobbled together stuff on there. After 35 yrs , its due.

Try turning the low adjuster in a little, maybe 1/8 to 1/4 turn. If better leave it ,if worse open it a little more than it was. Steve

andyman, Did you get the Little 16 -18” Poulan S25 in the mid/late 70s? It was and still is a Super Saw for my use. I have never had or wanted anything larger even though I cut some large wood (12 " - 30” dia when needed “Back Then”). I have had the saw in three Versions/Colors but all S25s. Original Green then Gold marked Poulan, later Red marked Craftsman with electronic ignition. Backups to the original that lost a wrist pin keeper that ruined the cylinder. I wish the monsters had primer bulbs as I use them less in my young age (2-3 pulls vs 5 unless I manually prime). LOL

I left out that the Poulan is my brother's. I'm a hack compared to him.

Loger: Yep thats the vintage Poulan that was considered a REAL Saw , not like the girly saws from offshore that are on the box store shelves today. Its a shame that such a great saw company has been ruined by Junk from China.
