Husqvarna Chain Saw Rope Pulls Very Hard, what is the cause?????????

Rope pulls very hard and makes starting difficult. I thought maybe the spark arrester was plugged, but I removed the muffler and it still pulled hard, but it pulls easy when spark plug is removed. What can be causing this problem????????

    my 55 rancher is very hard to pull when cold , pulls easy with plug removed

    any solutions?

    I have an older Husky 271 (before decompression valves) with the same problem. It seems almost locked up until I pull the plug and then it pulls easy. A squirt of WD-40 into the cylinder before reinstalling the spark plug seems to help somewhat. Once it starts, it has lots of power.

    I am wondering about the valves? I assume this has a leaf type valve?

    Husky 55 Rancher is very hard to pull over with the starter cord and has been like this since new. Is there a design problem or a fix available? Taking it to a shop did not cure the problem. RUPE

Has it always done this or has it developed?
Some saws have a decompression button to make it easier to pull over.

Also check you starter pulley center pivot for excessive wear.

Most saws without a compression release requires more effort to start that is why they have a foot hold built into the handle. You slowly pull engine over to top of compression stroke and give good pull while holding it down with your foot.

Check piston rings. Sounds like you have a seized engine.

Homelite chain saw XL925 cord pull too hard but if you remove the spark plug then it pulls OK.


I have a Homelite XL and was having problems with rope pulling from difficult to unable to pull rope while trying to start saw. I removed the muffler, squirted some WD40 through the exhaust port ABOVE and BELOW the piston compression ring. Then pulled the rope about 20 times without spark plug to fully lubricate the piston and cylinder. Left it till the next day, pulled it through about 20 more times, put the spark plug back in,and it works well now. Guess it was just gummed-up a little and the lubrication freed it.

Starter rope hard to pull. It's not smooth and takes a lot of effort.


Make sure the brake is off and retest. If brake is off and still difficult to pull, remove the side cover, chain, bar and retest. If still not right (remove sparkplug), remove the muffler and make sure that the spark arrest screen is clean and verify that the cylinder and piston look clean and smooth by looking into port. You can clean the cylinder by spraying wd40 and pulling the rope untill it all comes back out. Verify that the rope pulls smoothly before you reinstall the spark plug. If all looks good, reinstall muffler and retest. If the compression is normal, it should be rather hard to pull thru the compression stroke. Reinstall bar and chain for final test.

I have a wild thing. the rope pull starter is very hard to pull. when i take the spark plug out it is easy to pull. the saw was not used for about 4 years until yesterday. it ran for about 45 minutes fine....


one piston ring has expanded now having no or a very fine gap increasing the compression ratio causing this to happen. When the spark plug is removed it is very easy to pull on the cord in any means. A inspection is due of this engine or a new chain saw is needed

Answer to 2 year old question about hard starting saw.There is a seal that goes bad and leaks chain oil into the crankcase.This will make it very hard or impossible to pull the starter rope. To start the saw,pull the spark plug, stand the saw on it's end so the bar is pointed up and pull the rope 10-15 times. Replace the spark plug and start.It will smoke for a while.To stop this from happening, always store the saw with the bar pointed straight down.

Chain saw won't start - pull starter pulley hard to pull?


If it worked fine the last time you used it, then pull the spark plug and try pulling the rope. See if it's easier or if gas shoots out of the plug hole. I've seen this happen when the diaphram in the carb goes bad from sitting over winter. It loads up the cylider with fuel and makes it very difficult to pull the rope. If there is no fuel in the cyliner and it's still hard to pull, make sure there is nothing binding the clutch/sprocket. I've had chucks of wook lodged in there that caused it to bind the crank output, which resulted in a hard pull on the rope as well.

Rope hard to pull, engine spins freely with plug removed


First off Husqvarna does not make Craftsman chainsaws. Chainsaws are very high compression usually 125 to 150 lbs. pulling the rope slowly will make it very hard to pull. Short fast pulls are best, this allow the flywheel to build momentum to get it past the compression portion of the piston trvavel.
