    No body is blaming you. Just a warning. You build one, it's impowering and we all want to see it work. The worst thing you can do is open it up, the main bearings instantly overheat. I oil mine, but still.

    The urge to hear it roar is large. It's a kit and you gotta be gentle until you get the bugs worked out.

    Even though that's very hard not to do. We are weak human men that loves loud things lol.

    What parts of the saw were leaking when you tested it

    Yes being is was lubed you will be fine for a test start. But I do not run any 2 stroke on 50 to 1. Manufactures have to say this now and do it to pass EPA regs. No 2 stroke should be on 50 to 1 ever.
    As example a good buddy and I bought the same exact Husqvarna weedeater. Was a super sale could not pass it up. That was 4 years ago. Husky says 50-1. I told him to run 32-1 if he wants it to last. He told me I was a jackass. Litterly to my face. Says that that's what husky says so that's what you do. Well long story short he just dropped his POS off at the dealer for the second time its needed a top end put on it. Cylinder all scored up. Guess what? I have never touched mine! Still stock with the same cylinder and piston on 32-1. I run the crap out of this thing every year clearing 2 acres. His trims around his house and building. I bet mine has 200 times the use his does. I popped the muffler a few days back. Put a carb kit in it. Looked thing over. She looks awesome. Good to go for several more seasons.

    4oz per gallon for 32:1. People look at that little 2.7 expensive bottle and go hell no...until they *****. I started buying it by the quart. I run mine 40:1 for regular and 32:1 for heavy use. Back packs are heavy to me, I run mine wide open.

    The decomp valve leaked bad. I had a very slow leak somewhere. I sprayed the seals and saw no bubbles. I finally decided the slow leak was the cobbled up way I had the intake blocked.

    Watch this. It's the only way to correctly protect your saw. My website has the tools and part numbers you need. Except the bolt and I will add it now if it's missing

    I use H1-R by Belray. It mixes well and coats the nikasil best. That statement will get me shot. People take their oil seriously. I could talk ill of their daughter before dissing their oil. None of my kits ever had a lubrication issue.

    Lol same here. I use same oil in our dirt bikes, jet skis and chainsaws. Have great luck for years. But yep chainsaw guys freak out over oils. Use this use that. You can't use this.... Well no problem. Use what treats you well and so will I.

    The Huztl Decomp is a leaking POS. Get either a Stihl or Husqvarna OEM Decomp. They still leak a bit but nothing like the Huztl valve.

    Or just block it off, like in my 660.

    Once you learn all the "tricks" to starting it, it's nowhere near as traumatic...

    For example: choke ON, pull starter real slow through two or three cycles of the piston. Then rewind starter, then pull until you can feel the piston compressing...if needed, allow starter to rewind a click or two...then simultaneously drop saw and pull starter HARD thru one cycle. If it doesn't start, turn choke off and put control switch to RUN. Do the rewind-starter-pull-until-you-feel-compression-regain-a-click-or-two-on-starter-DROP/PULL routine again. Mine starts easy now, and hurts my hand much less.

    I don't have to have AM. HL also has OEM Husqvarna ones for 13.49. Since the 660 started and ran so we'll, I can reward it by giving it a Husqvarna part.

    I can't tell if you kidding or know something I don't. Be interesting to see how that works out.
