Poulan 2000 etc.
« on: June 05, 2015, 02:30:59 pm »
Here is a good idea for making these saws easier to start.  Primer bulb hadn't thought about it.

No thanks.  I don't like purge bulbs.  Just pull the rope a few more times.  It's a 33cc saw........................ain't like pulling over a 288XP or 2100CD without a comp release.

I've never had a problem with the Micro series.  Only have to pull a bunch of times if the saw has been run dry or has been sitting for a long time. 

If the carb diaphragms/gaskets and/or crank seals are tired (which the often are on 30 year old saws) then they can take more pulls to pump fuel from the tank....

I have to disagree with Eccentric, I just rebuilt a saw that has a purge bulb  and it was running with 4 pulls instead of 13 pulls for the last one without a bulb.
  I know, sooner or later they will give trouble, but I like em.

Just saving ebay pic.

I prefer no primer bulbs too. I actually disable some saws with them.

I wonder if it really helps or is just a sales gimmick and which carburetor he changed to. Some folks have bad shoulder and like easy start.

I just prime my 2000 thru the carb if it has been sitting a long time.   I don't have to pull it 20 times that way to get it to run.

i'm guessing folks with bad shoulders may like this. me, I don't have the need. mine always start within 5 - 10 pulls after sitting. no big deal. I've got exactly two saws with bulbs; I don't use em
now is never here but the past is always present.

the seller is jrp he is a pretty smart guy ... but i dont think i would want a primer there... also i would really like to see a pick of the routing in the air box.... i mean are the fuel lines over the filter?I clean my filters alot.... did he route them out of the way? i may email him and ask.....as he is a pretty good seller to deal with and a nice guy with info.....i also prime my saws if they sit a long time....
 he may have went to a carb that he replaced with a new style carb???? i saw a few he did like this.... would really like a pic of inside under the air filter cover.....

Anymore, most newer purge bulb setups are single line and act somewhat as a primer. On the outside of the case they look just like the double line setups but inside the case there is just a single line from the metering chamber of the carburetor to the bulb. There's no return line to the top of the tank.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
