    hi iv had a search round the site for the info i need, no luck. iv just been given the above saw. when i was given it the pull start wouldnt pull. so i removed it from the body and turned the engine over with a spanner seemed a bit stiff at first but then went ok, so pull the pull start back on and it pulled ok. next i took spark plug out, it looked a bit black. so i gave it a clean up and tested it for a spark, seemed like a nice spark. put plug back in and tried to start,. took a while but then it would start the stall straight away. did this a few times then i gave up(sore arm). i took the plug out again today and its all coked up. looks like black grease. so i clean it up again engine still turns over ok. put plug back in and tried to start. all i get now is exaust smoke not even strating. then the pull start seized again. removed it and engine was stiff aagin. plug black again. sorry for the essay

    any ideas.

    thank you to all

    Not meaning to be rude but garbage that saw. I have the same and the oiler stopped. No sense in repairing unless you need an experiment.

    sounds like someone used motor oil in it instead of 2 cycle oil
