Re: Poulan 2550

Yesterday 2 older gent shows up at my place with a poulan 2550. Bought new years back but wont start. Told him 99% pretty sure what I will find. But wouldnt get a chance to look till mon or so. Hunting trip.
Curiosity was killing me. So before I packed. I took a peek. New fuel lines and primer lines later.
Called him back about a hour later to come pick up his saw.

Also ask him was it hard to start since new? He said yes. I told him I adjusted that too on L side. He was all smiles on the 1 pull start warm.

What I took from this saw comparing to a 260 I had on shelf. Spring av etc just like the poulan pro 260. Only difference I noticed it had a hand guard instead of chain brake cover. Oh and it was green.

Maybe ?  530069844 oem kit  K10-WAT 

Walbro WT-391 carb

I'll try and take a pic of the Poulan 2550 with the spring AV in for a no start. Appears to be needing a carb kit IMHO

Reminds me of the green version of a poulan pro 260 220

 Now the weird thing. Blue check side come out of it so I put the black check side diaphragm that was like come out of it. Would not transition from low to high when giving throttle. So I was curious and pulled carb and put the tan check side dia in. Purrrrrrfect. Never seen a dia do that before when same style was replace from one that came out.

I had loaned the guy a newer strato version I had on hand while working on it for him. He had some limbs to trim.

2550 has just the hand guard. The PP260 220 have chain brake in clutch covers.

EN on CRG said only 2550 he had seen had chain brake like the PP260.

Looking into it the type 1-4 was like this one with handguard I got in from local and type 5 had the chain brake clutch covers like 260.  Explains why we seen both now.
