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

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

SOURCE: cant find serial number on stihl chain saw ms 290

If the silver rating label is still on the safety brake lever, it should be on there. If not, look at teh housing to the left of the exhaust by the 'teeth' on the body, or on the housing below the exhaust. It is normally stamped into the plastic.

SOURCE: 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.

I can't tighten the chain on my stihl ms 251 chain saw


Pull the side cover and check for a broken or misaligned chain tensioner. I assume that you have loosened the bar nut on the side cover before attempting to adjust the chain tension. The methiod varies depending on whether your model has the side chain tensioner or the quick chain tensioner.

Installing a spring in an MS240 Stihl chain saw


I have not worked on you type saw. I have put new starter springs in other saws. One end of the spring fits into the housing and the other in the pulley. Once you have that done there should be a notch in the pulley that you put the rope into that will allow the spring to be wound up without taking up the rope. It is a trial error problem now. If the spring is wound too tight you will not get full rope travel. If it is too loose tilt will not pull the rope in fully.

I just replaced the recoil \\starter rope on my blower


Are you sure you have the right length rope??? If you are sure the rope length is correct you may have wound the recoil spring too tight causing it to run out of travel. You want the recoil spring just tight enough to pull the rope all the way in.
