Reply: Alternate Part
When the manufacture stopped supplying the 530035123 Inlet fitting, they did not come out with a replacement for it. You might look on the carburetor for a manufacture on the carburetor to see if you can get the part that way. Other then that keep searching on line hopefully there might be a company out there that might have one. Also you can contact a Poulan service center in your area and ask them if they have an alternative parts that they use.
Question: POULAN CYLINDER
Will the 3800 cylinder/piston set replace the cylinder/piston on a 3400 poulan chain saw
Reply: POULAN CYLINDER
Even though they look the same on both schematics, all the part number are different. I would not think that they would be interchangeable.
I'am in need for an ignition module for my 3800 Poulan chain saw. Cannot locate one any where, they have been dis-continued. Any old saws out there?? Either a 3800 or a 4000 Part # 530039093
Question: Carb To Adaptor Gskt #530019099
I can't find this part available. Any suggestions?

I just checked and the part is discontinued by the manufacture. Your best bet would be to try a few of the Poulan service centers in your area. One of them might still have the part of their shelves or maybe have an old saw that they could take the part off of.
Question: Gas Tank Hoses
On my Poulan 3800 there are two gas tank hoses on the gas tank. One from the fuel filter to the carburetor. What does the second hose connect to?
Reply: Gas Tank Hoses
2nd hose is tank vent into tank cavity. trhis hose must have a small plastic reed valve inside the tank.
