Question about Garden
Unfortunately there is no way to clean the carb without removing it, and disassembling it, you can replace the fuel filter in the fuel tank fairly easily, just hook the hose out through the open filler hole, pull the filter off the end of the hose and replace with new.

I am sorry to say this, but the compression for that type of engine should be atleast 120 psi. Remove the muffler and look at the cylinder, it is scarred beyond repair.

This is a common problem on older Poulan models. Press the primer button 10 times and pull the starter rope twice, then pull the spark plug and examine it. If the plug is wet that means gas is definitely getting to the combustion chamber. Next thing is to use a compression tester. If you do not have a compression tester but have an AutoZone anywhere near you, you can get a loaner from them. Screw the compression tester into the plug hole and pull the start rope 4 times. If the tester reads anything below 90psi, you have a bad ring and will have to take the motor apart to clean the piston and ring or replace the ring.
Keep me posted on what you find, ok? I can walk you through the procedure to replace the ring if necessary. Good Luck!
