Question about Husqvarna "Chain Saw - 16" Bar, 3 Hp
I have a Husqvarna 51 from 1991 that hasn't been run for a couple of years. When I pull the starter cord it will hardly budge. WhenI remove the spark plug the starter cord works fine.Any ideas on what will free it up so it'll start would be appreciated. Richard
It sounds like it's sorta gummed up from old gas residue. You could spray carb cleaner in the spark plug hole and into the carb while holding the throttle open and pull the cord several times and then follow that with penetrating oil to re-lubricate the engine. You're probably going to have problems with the carb also. I would have it rebuilt or, better yet, purchase a new one
