    I got the new starter from the seller today, the starter cup is a smaller diameter than the other one was.
    I haven't put it on the saw yet .

    If my big Husky didnt have a decomp valve,I'd seriously think about putting that handle on it.;lol Sold my Poulan 475/rebadged Jonsered 2077 last November,it had 180+ compression & no decomp,as I got older it was a real arm breaker pulling that rope,especially when it snapped back & almost broke my finger! :eek:

    The guy I bought the saw from has a saw shop in oregon

    I was grinning ear to ear,after I ripped through that 20" tree In no time ==c

    On that note, why is a saw so hard to pull some times after it hasn't been run for a while ? cuz not much lubrication in there ?
    My 35cc saw, I wasn't holding it down good enough, I pulled and it smacked me in the leg hard !!! I learned a little lesson that day

    Saws (pretty much any gas engine I think) are always more difficult to start/have more compression when cold.I cant give you a really scientific answer,just know that's the way it is.

    Combination of tighter clearances, less oil clinging to parts, and thicker/more viscous oil from reduced temps.
