Look before you pickup the fuel lines, there are two different ones that don't interchange.  Look in the tank, one is short and straight, the other is long and is molded into an "S" shape.  The grommet size id different.

I actually had one in here that was doing the same thing, turned out that after ordering the lines, kit etc as was suggested by FISH, it was a mis-routed plug wire that had **** and was grounding out on the jug when the saw was turned bar-side down. I figured this out by removing the top cover, starting the saw, turning out the shop lights, then turning the saw on its' side while running. You could actually see the HT charge jump out of the plug wire and go directly to the cylinder. The mis-routing of the plug wire was the route cause of the problem since it allowed the wire to rub on the case when the saw was running. The SM shows the correct routing on the wire, in case you want to check.

Another note taken and I will check that as well...no time to devote to it yet :-[  All good suggestions and thank you. When I get this one done, I've an issue with a cheapie 025 and a problem with a aaaaaa aaaa  (shhhhh)............ Poulan.

FISH, no big deal the parts have already been used on other 026 saws that have come and gone.

I have used this seal puller on several 024's and 026's on the flywheel side. Pops them right out with no harm to the crankshaft!

Tip...I use a bar nut under the fulcrum.

Ive been reading the past responses and am learning some new terminology. What is "impulse circuit" and Dave what do you mean by "Tip...I use a bar nut under the fulcrum".
I totally appreciate the wealth if info on this site.

Randy, the impulse circuit is a method to drive the carburetor pump with pressure bled off the crankcase pressure built up on the power stroke of the engine. TIP, the tool that Dave is talking has an adjustable fulcrum which in the case of a chainsaw is too short, so Dave puts a bar nut under it to get it to the right height.

Yeah, the impulse kinda goes both ways to pump the fuel, it gets a bit of "umf" both ways I believe.......

But then again, I have always had 2 nuts under my fulcrum......
