Poulan chainsaw issues

I have a 8yr old poulan 2150, it runs but after running for 5 minutes while cutting the saw starts to cut out, it will restart i just can't keep it running (while cutting)... i did adjust during summer (H/L) and it ran fine but now that the temperature up here in NE drop below 45 degrees it's giving me problems again....

Any ideas...??

Could be a number of things. If backing out the H screw a little doesn't help, check the gas cap vent. It could be blocked. There could also be problems like a cracked fuel line, primer bulb, carb restrictions, or air leak in the case.

I have the same problem described by "soccer34". I replaced the fuel lines, as they disintegrated, and verified they are correct. After I replaced the lines the tank became pressurized after pressing the primer a few times but that has since stopped. If I remove the plug and squirt starting fluid into the cavity the saw will run briefly and then stop. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Does the primer fill with fuel? Are you sure you connected the lines properly and none are kinked or pinched closed?

Yes, I have rechecked and the fuel lines and they are correct.
I read a post where someone mentioned they were getting too much gas and it was causing it to flood.
I checked and the lines are not crimped or pinched.

Thanks, Tom

You mention seeing a post about flooding. Do you think your saw is flooding? If so what is it doing?
