Are the attachment points, the end of bar that bolts to chain saw, universal or different with different models?

I have looked for a longer bar for the Poulan P4018WT Chainsaw. And the longest bar I can locate is the 952044418 18 Inch Bar.

Yes yes yes
Question: Chainsaw Bushing
do i need to buy the clutch drum when all i need is the 3/8 bushing
Reply: Chainsaw Bushing
It looks as if the manufacture does not supply the 3/8 bushing by itself. So it looks as if a new 530057905 clutch drum is in your future. Unless you have a bearing supplier in your area that might have that bearing. All you would need to do is press the old one out then press the new one in.
Hope that helps,
Question: P4018wt Poulan Chainsaw
Poulan wildthing. starts but will not run more than 15 seconds. Seems to be compression build up as after it run for a few seconds it becomes difficult to pull the starter line. Can feel undue pressure. Removed the spark plug to relieve the pressure and will start and run for a few seconds.
Should I rebuild or replace the carburator??
