The OP did......................................) nobody said anything about running it like that. Sure that would be obvious not to
Before going out to buy Wheaties and Geritol I tried backing out the plug a hair or two more. Cord pulled out and it started!
As we say at FedEx, I absolutely, positively could not have solved this without the help from everyone here.
The problem is the issue is most likely to return and sadly may do so in a catastrophic way.Alright already. If it helps to lessen any negative feelings, I plead guilty! To whatever. Not sure what. But to whatever.
The saw appears to be running ok now even when the spark plug is tight. Bob Hedgecutter probably guessed what happened.
Well sometimes catastrophic failures are not about the saw they are about the safety of the operator and the folks around. This is a picture from 2008. That is me after a catastrophic failure running my piped Mac 125.I’ll wait to be sad until that happens.
It’s only be since the 12th of never that the saw’s been in a shop. Might be time.
My last experience was to my GREAT surprise and issue/ solution where previous owner/ tech had assembled with flywheel keyway 1/4" away from the key, and wud NOT crank due to high compression when plug installed and cranked fine w/ plug removed. Putting back to proper position restored proper cranking and running.Pull the recoil assembly, and re-build it? Its begging for service. The spark plug nonsense jostle simply bumped the stuck spool and it released.
