pressurize the fuel tank to operate. Intermittent trouble with flooding. New carb kit installed. New gas filter and gas line too. Some times, if you take the spark plug out and pull it over a few times it will spit gas out the spark plug hole. So, had it running today and worked, but quit some and rev up and down on its own. But I got some wood cut.
Any ideas other than dirt. Poulan saw.

Does it seem quieter than normal? You could have a plugged up muffler. That will restrict air flow, make it hard to start and not have good throttle response

No, tater195, had that apart too, not plugged up anywhere in the muffler. Checked the key way on flywheel also, it was ok.

Check intake,biggest problem on all these saws,if needle,seat and cap vent are good do a compression test,their is a model they made with with floating port inserts I stay away from,they lose down pressure and the crank fills with gas like bad rings or seals can do,when it does come up its instinstant flood

Have you checked for trash in the carb?  I was working on a blower that was doing the same thing and round corrosion in the carb.
