When I was going to college I worked at a tool rental center and learned may tricks about tools. At this rental center chainsaws were seasonal thus sat in the warehouse probably as in your situation. Well one is supposed to store a chainsaw without any fuel and discard any old fuel mix because it will not keep. To easily start a saw that was in storage we would install a new spark plug, add fresh fuel mix and spray carburetor cleaner directly into the carbureter to get it started. Once started fresh fuel would be drawn into the engine from the tank and keep running. If you forgot to drain the old fuel, do it now and use the trick above. For best results, always use a fresh plug. Enjoy

Timing adjustment for Ryobi Petrol Chainsaw Model PCN 4040. Flywheel has come loose and timing nees to be set up again. Are there timing marks to do this?


No timing marks I'm afraid.
But if you play around with the adjustment, you'll soon get the jist of it.
Also don't forget, you can adjust the timing, by opening, or closing the gap on the plug too;)
FixedYa!
& plz don't forget to give me a nice rating ;))
Thankyou,

I have the same model chainsaw with the same fault. The brake is not releasing when the brake handle is pulled right back. I can only run mine if the brake handle is pulled back to the main handle with a tyrap - defeats the object of the auto-brake completely. Design fault I reckon.
