My neighbor found me a 41 at the dump, quick clean and tune up runs and oils great. Even has a good chain. Wow the things people throw away!Spent the last couple of years finding used and new OEM parts to rebuild this from a sorry state. It's finally done.

Low compression?I acquired a a nice little 142e.(not running)
Looks to be in great shape and has good spark. I haven’t popped the exhaust off yet to check the piston & cylinder. Do theses saws have a start assist or decompression valve when starting? Feels very easy to pull the cord.
Everything looks great on the saw from what I see. Looks to be original fuel lines/filter. Probably needs a carburetor overhaul.
I plan to pull the carb and put a repair kit in it. Zama w-29 I think? RB-38 sound right for a rebuild kit?
I’ve never owned or worked on a saw newer than 1980 and have never worked on a Husqvarna.
Is there anything special or unique about these models to look out for that may be preventing it from starting?
Any advice would be appreciated
