I set it 4 stroking out of the cut and clear up in the cut. Thats all the fuel you need. 

Yeah after the muffler mod you should have to open the H side up some more.


To lean this way IMO

Revving high out of the cut and then in wood is less fuel. Just because it sounds meaner at higher rpm's dont mean it is.

cut up about 7 medium downed trees monday night. Its definitely 4-stroking in the cut alittle so I assume I need to bump the high end up alittle,correct? I didnt realize how loud the Muffler mod was until I was cutting in the middle of nowhere out at my dads and shut it off haha. Also if anyone has any 2375 non-strato's they wanna sell please let me know.

If it is still 4 stroking in cut yes. Should clear up.

Listen to how my 166 was 4 stroking out of cut and then clears up in the cut.

Of these 3 I think I have a 2150 left. The one with new fuel lines.  Same deals as the others.   http://chainsawrepair.createaforum.com/poulan/poulan-2150/

Thinking 42cc too. Older then the 2375 and no chain brake. Just hand guard that looks like the 2375 brake handle.

Anything is possible.  Heck for the right price I would paint a oem clutch cover purple instead of the one I did from a 268-272 cover.

I JUST RECENTLY GOT A POULAN WILDTHING 40 18 and i have to say i like it much better then the older ones.....the older ones if you did not start it just right would flood.... this lil sucker seems to start for any one ..... cuts good with a 14 inch bar too...and even with a 16.....

once i got it down the 2375 wild thing was no biggie but any one that tried to start it seemed to flood them......i even did at first .....i did get it down ..... this is the first 4018 i have had and it seems like a decent lil saw.....i remember reading how everyone likes the 2375 model but i like these new lil 4018.... lost the muffler screen opened it up and its a decent lil saw......some anti vibe would be nice LOL.....just my opinion i had 3 of the older ones like new... sold them i may keep this new lil or i may look for one with anti vibe......
