    My Poulan 2375 Wildthing is a &**&%$%
    I had some spark ..not great.
    I installed the coil/flywheel kit ..... now no spark..
    What have I done wrong?

    Did you connect the kill switch properly, is something shorted, did you set a proper air gap between the coil and magnet?

    Is there a set place on the shaft for the flywheel (no key setup) ?
    That was One thought.
    Second I did use a business card for gap.
    This helps to see were I went wrong.

    There is absolutely a correct position for the flywheel. Looking at pics of that flywheel on eBay and the like, the key is cast into the bore.

    Business card is good for the gap.

    I'd say you use the Poulan for target practice and use one of your husky saws. :)
