Sorry on way 1st question went engine has new gas-fuel filter,line carb taken apart cleaned-starter taken apart wheel is engaging sanded and cleaned flywheel-magneto for sparkplug cleaned and working

Either the valves are out adjustment or the decompressor has failed.

Most OHV valves valve clearance open over time causing the decompression system to become in effective; however, the decopressor fails and even properly adjusted valves will still will not decompress the cylinder for starting.

I just repair a B&S 310000 series that had so much compression that the engine would even complete a cycle. After checking the valve adjustment I found that the decompressor on the cam had failed.

Check your valve adjustment first as these uses a decompressor that on the camshaft itself.

Now while checking the valve clearances as you go past TDC of the compression stroke there should a little bump on the intake valve when the decompressor is working. If this bump is not there and the valves are set correctly then the decompressor has failed and requires the cam to be replaced.

Briggs& stration 28u707 valves clearance and adjustment

.003" - .005" Intake

Done at 1/4" past TDC of compression stroke so that decompression mechanism doesn't interfere with the adjustment.

When the valves are adjusted on the de-compression stroke can they be re-adjusted or is the head now faulty?

valves should always be adjusted with the cylinder being adjusted at top dead center(tdc). if you can rotate the motor by hand you can adjust the valves with no damage having being done.

How to adjust chain bar oiler

The Stihl 026 PRO does have an adjustable oiler and it is located on the bottom of the saw just below the clutch drum.
Stihl also builds an 026 "Standard" without the adjustable oiler, however, the hole location for adjustment is still there.

The 026 PRO will also have a decompression valve on top of the saw to make the rope easier to pull during startup. If you have the DECO valve you should also have the adjustable oiler. Hope this helps.
