Question about Husqvarna , No.455 Rancher, 20" Gas - Powered Chainsaw
Jerry is correct the compression release is ajdacent to the spark plug. If it pops the saw fired and the release closed (what it is supposed to do).
Read page 22 here:
Excerpt follows: "Pull the starter handle (D): Pull the starter handle with your right hand and pull out the starter cord slowly until you feel a resistance (as the starter pawls engage) then pull firmly and rapidly until the engine fires. Push in the choke control as soon as the engine fires which can be heard through a "puff" sound. Keep on pulling the cord powerfully until the engine starts."
Continuing with the choke closed causes flooding. Please read the "Warm Engine" too it is slightly different.
