Question: Poulan Pro Small Spring

john33428

I went to change out the chain and a small spring fell out when I took the chain cover off. Where does it go??
Hi John I found this diagram on another site. I do not see the spring as a listed part. If you have not got it by now, give the diagram a look. Check diagram Bar/Housing/Oil Tank. I hope this helps. This site does NOT have any parts diagrams of this pole pruner.

link removed PRUNER Parts | Model PP258TP | Sears PartsDirect

After looking at the singular parts listing for your pruner on THIS site, maybe the spring goes on/in this part? The photo does not show it, but it IS a good photo. Check it out and see what you think.It has to go NEAR this part if it fell out when you removed the chain cover.

It may also be installed in this cover part:

Small spring sits inside the tension adjustment screw housing.
Piece of advice from pro mechanic of small engines:
Buy two magnetic cup holders to place parts in when disassembly, take a cell phone photo before, during, and compare when assembly; and, you'll soon learn where everything fits.
Most calls I get from chain saw operators is saw will not stay idling or does not cut right. Reality is chainsaws are extremely dangerous for inexperienced. If you can learn proper operations procedures, proper safety gear then don't use a chainsaw. These machines can easily take off limbs, and I am not writing about wood limbs neither. If you do find yourself using a chainsaw, make sure someone knows where you are at before going get yourself injured or worse.
Most common issues with saws, wrong fuel, improper mixture, lubrication and inexperienced.
Never use E-85 unless displays otherwise. Mix fuel with oil, not oil with fuel with the correct ratio, most common is either 40:1 or 50:1; 40 parts to one part. A 50:1 mixture is 2.67 ounces of 2-cycle oil to 1 gallon of gasoline; wrong mixture eventually with score the piston walls, called a burn-out then saw will not stay running. Most all saw have a built in F-setting, which means the saw will not idle long before shutting off, called a Fail safety switch.
Motor oil is not the same as Bar Lube; using motor oil will burn up the Bar before operator can realize danger one's in. Do not operate a saw with a burnt or warp Bar.
Make sure the blade is moving in the correct direction. Keep chain sharp and adjusted tension correctly, or you'll damage the sprocket drives. Check tension from bottom of bar, not top. Do not plow into the ground, do not cut into anything that isn't of wood product. As for air/fuel mix on a Poulan saw. Poulan tools are not sold to the public; however, if you do those things your saw will last many years.
Question: Throttle Housing

1129935

I need to replace the trigger housing where the trigger actually fits on to it. Do I need to order both the top and the bottom throttle housing, even though my top housing is still good? The dowel that the trigger fits on, broke...therefore I'm thinking I just need the bottom portion. Is this correct?
WJA
Hello 1129935,

You should be okay just ordering the bottom housing, since the top is not broken.

Hello lary,

You may have a dirty of clogged carburetor. We have prepared an article and video on how to do that, here is a link to it.

How to Clean a 2 Cycle Engine Carburetor.

Hope this helps,
-WJA
I would say if you ever or someone before you has removed the carburetor it is highly likely the air hole is covered. A very common error, and most will say you need a rebuild or new carburetor when the error is simply an error in assembly.
Question: Poula Pro Pp258 Carburetor

How do you replace carburetor in Poulan Pro pp258tp
Remove the air cleaner out of your way. Remove two screws that fastens unit; now have a clean work area before you start, not oil here grease there and junk around. CLEAN!
When you remove the carburetor make sure you watch for any small gaskets that may fall out. I just said in one review, if you assemble back, and the air hole on the piston housing gets blocked it will not run or crank no matter how many carbs you change out.
Take a picture before you start, and mark the fuel lines with a permanent marker; and disassemble slowly and when carb is ready to remove take needle nose pliers and remove the throttle cable, set aside. Now you can rebuild the carburetor. Most all these 2 cycle carbs are out of Tennessee through a company called Zama. Range from $35 to $100, but can rebuilt for around $20 or less, often times for less than $5 bucks if you know what you are doing. 99% of all carb failures are from trash, water in gas, varnished fuel, or gasket issue. If never been removed since coming from factory, the issue is allowing fuel sit in basis over the season. It stops up the jet flow hole inside the unit.
Hi 2calldave Most Zama and Walbro carbs are made in China and Mexico. Ruiing carbs which look identical to Zama are made in China. Many carb issues are from dirt and foreign matter which eventually clogs up the ultra fine fuel screen in the carburetor. More often than NOT though, dried up fuel pump diaphragms and dried up metering diaphragms are the culprit. They lose their flexibility; becoming stiff and therefore lose their ability to operate properly.
