    There are about 15 different active manufacturers for chainsaws; each with 5-20 models. Can you be a little more specific? Manufacturer? Model and serial numbers from the makers tag. Lou

    You still didn't provide a model number. The name "California" is a marketing gimmick and doesn't help when trying to find a IPL. Current model McCullochs can be found here:

    Click "Products"; "Download manuals";

    1. Click (check) "Illustrated Parts Lists (IPL)"

    2. Click (unchecked) "Operators Manuals (OM)"

    3. Change "Select brand" to McCulloch; leave "Type your search query (i.e. product name)" blank and click "Search" - your saw should be on the list that follows. An inspection of your saw will almost certainly find a matching number.

    4. When you find the correct IPL I suggest you print a copy and put it away for future reference.

    McCulloch can also be reached @ 1 (800) 521-8559. If you go this route please have your saw in hand when you call. It will make it easier for both of you.

    I've invested quite a bit of time trying to solve your question. Please invest some of your own by rating my answer. GL

Where is the decompression valve for stihl chain saw 026?

If it has one, it will be directly in front of the spark plug. Most 026 saws did not have one, however, an 026 Pro did.

Saw starter pulling too hard to start.

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

Put new decompression valve in , when pulling the pullcord there's no compression ,it justs jams

Check to make sure the old valve didn't have part of it fall down on top of the piston. I just had that exact thing happen to a TS400 in my shop for service.

I have been trying to turn on my chain saw. Ive pulled the handle back by the trigger gave a few pull on the rope. then i pushed the button in on the side also the push the button back in by the trigger...

The chainbrake should be activated when starting the chain saw. Activate the chain brakeby pushing the front hand guard forwards.b>Cold engine Start position, 1: Set the start/stop switch in the choke position by pulling thered control outward - upward.Decompression valve: Press the valve to reduce the pressure in the cylinder and makestarting easier. Once the machine has started the valve will automaticallyreturn to its original setting.Air purge: Press the air purge diaphragm repeatedly until fuel fills thediaphragm (at least 6 times). The diaphragm need not be completely filled.Grip the front handle with yourleft hand. Hold the chain saw on the ground by placing your right foot throughthe rear handle.Pull the starter handle, 4: Pull the starter handle with your right hand and pull out thestarter cord slowly until you feel a resistance (as the starter pawls engage)then pull firmly and rapidly until the engine fires.Push down the red choke control: As soon as the engine fires which can be heard through a"puff" sound, push down on the red choke control.Pull the starter handle (6): Keep on pulling the cord powerfully until the engine starts.

I have been trying to make it start but the pulley is too hard. It is a new chain saw.

I think you ran it with oil mixed in the fuel. Did you?

Determine if the warranty is active first. Most warranties are effective for 1 to 5 years. If yes return it to where it was purchased or find an authorized repair facility. A written diagnosis by a good independent saw shop ($10-20) might be a good idea at this point. It is difficult to argue repair charges with an authorized repair facility without some documentation in your favor.
· Remove the starter housing. Does the starter operate smoothly? If yes, reinstall the cover and continue with 2, if no repair starter.
· Is the saw equipped with a decompression valve? Yes continue, no proceed with 3.
· Leave the ignition off, set the valve and pull the starter.
· Pull gently to release the valve. Is there a difference in the effort required? If yes continue with 3, if no repair or replace the decompression valve.
· Was this saw perhaps operated without oil mixed with the fuel?
· Remove the spark plug wire and plug.
· Remove the muffler, hold a light at the plug hole and inspect the cylinder through the exhaust port. Is it smooth and shiny or does it appear speckled with dull gray spots or smears?
· Pull the starter slowly, inspect the piston as it rises and falls. Is it a dull gray without scratches and gouges?
· Hold the light at the exhaust port and look through the spark plug hole, inspect the cylinder above the exhaust port. Is it shiny and smooth or speckled with gray spots or smears?
Any spots or smears on the cylinder or deep scratches and gouges in the piston indicate the saw was operated in a lean condition. Repair of this on a home owner quality saw often exceeds replacement cost. A repair estimate by an independent saw shop should be considered.
· The last likely possibility is the saw has jumped timing. This problem or any not discussed is usually beyond the ability of the operator to repair. Please take it to a good local saw seller/mechanic for a written diagnosis before authorizing any repair. HTH

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.

Decompression valve for Homeliye XL-700 chain saw.

With the age of the chainsaw and the scarity of available parts, it would be major undertaking to even attempt to install a decomp valve into this chainsaw and the result could end up ruining the saw for good.

If I might make a suggestion that you either sell this, as there are many collectors of classic chainsaws such as the XL-700 and you might do better with a newer saw that is easier to start and use.

Either that, or just accept that starting these older saws are more difficult.

As to the C.U. rating for this saw, it is a 4.7 Cu. Inch displacement.

Here's an online manual wih a parts breakdown and exploded line drawings for the XL-700, in case you want to tinker with the saw.

Hope you found this Very Helpful - Best regards!
