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

The pull cord froze up. I tried to take it apart and rewind the coil spring but can't figure out how it attaches back to the pull cord housing to retract the pull cord. Any help with pictures would be...


I'm afraid you put yourself in a corner. You need to take your chain saw to a repair facility. Make sure to gather all the parts to go with. I know how to install a coil spring, but it's something you have to be shown in person how to do it. It can be pretty tricky.
You could be hurt by the spring uncoiling by accident.

Incidentally, I doubt if the coil was the original problem.
Why do you think that is the problem?

Saw was running great ,then just stopped and would not start again


Always keep in mind that you need 4 things to make combustion happen: Fuel, Spark, Oxygen (Air), and compression. One or more of these is missing and we need to figure out who is missing the party.
Let’s start with the basics:
Does it have gas? (Fuel)
Is the kill switch on? (Spark)
When you pull the cord slow does it give intermittent firm resistance? (Compression)
Is the air filter clean (Air)
Now you need to look at a few details:
Pull the spark plug out and checked for spark. This requires you to hook the spark plug up and let the plug lean up against the metal part of the head. Pull the cord, should be easy (no compression) and check for spark. Don’t hold plug with fingers as you may get a jolt. If no spark, try a new plug, still no spark check the switch and wiggle it around. Even if you have spark I like to install a new spark plug for this next test. With new plug in, pull at least 10 times, pull the plug and see if it looks wet. If it is wet, it is getting fuel.
Hope this helps.

Drum clutch on a chain saw


Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool. HTH

Recoil spring on homelite chain saw doesn't retract pull rope


Easy suggestion would be to get new spring coil. Is it older saw? Have had to change mine on poulan saws before.

Both methods require about 2 turns of pretension to rewind the cord when pulled.

Broken recoil spring


A new spring comes wound tight enough to be dropped into place in the starter housing (Easiest).
