"Echo Power Blend Universal 2-Stroke Oil can be used in all of our 2-cycle air-cooled equipment ever made. You may also use this oil in any other brand of 2-cycle air cooled equipment, but it should always be mixed at the 50:1 ratio whether or not it was a 32:1 or 16:1 etc. machine. This oil is the highest quality 2-cycle oil on the market today. There is no need to have more than 1 tank of fuel for your 2-cycle equipment any more."
The above excerpt is from the Echo FAQs (6) here:
Oil Mix Ratio:
The following ratios have been recommended for the last 10-15 years.
Dolmar, Echo, Efco, Homelite, Husqvarna, Jonsered, Makita, Oleo-Mac, Red Max, Ryobi, Shindaiwa, Solo, Spear & Jackson, Stihl & Tanaka; all recommend 50:1.
• 1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
• 4 liters of premium fuel to 80 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
McCulloch, Poulan & Wen; recommend 40:1.
• 1 gallon of premium fuel to 3.2 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.

Does it seem to have about the same compression as the other? Does it have equal spark? Any excess friction when pulling it through? When you had the muffler and carburetor off, did you notice any piston skirt damage visible through either port area. How about carbon build-up at the upper piston-side of the exhaust port--common on 2-strokes running heavy oil/fuel mixes. Worn/leaking crankshaft seals?

Be sure you have no spark ( 90% of the units that come into my shop for repair with the complaint of no spark- have a fuel issue). Be sure the spark plug is good.
If no spark then remove the ground wire from the module and check for spark again. You must use the recoil starter- spinning by hand is not sufficient. If still no spark then replace module. If there is spark with the ground wire disconnected then there is a problem with the kill switch or a bad wire.
