Angry Pioneer 1073 Chainsaw.

I have an old Pioneer 1073 chainsaw which is hard to start. When it does start, it runs for a few seconds and dies. It's in really good shape so I don't want to trash it(yet).
What are the carb settings? I put a new plug in it as well as new gas. Mixed it 25:1 so it would go easier.
No luck yet at all.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Most likely a fuel related problem due to either bad fuel lines and/or dirty carburetor.

Generally, the settings will be at one turn out from seated. From the get-go, however, set them both at 1 1/2 turns out as this will help if you have a restriction in the carburetor, which you likely do. You'll want to soak and recondition the carburetor using an original equipment (carb brand) rebuild kit.

Thumbs down Nfg

Well, I took it apart and adjusted the carb as it was way out.
It starts now and runs like crap. Just for fun I turned out my garage lights and gave it a few pulls. Sure enough, the plug lead is arcing all over. Then I take the re-coil off and turn the fly-wheel and it has no compression either.
Anybody need any parts?

If i'm not mistaken, this saw has a decompression valve and it may be stuck open causing the lack of compression. Have a look. The arcing issue is relatively easy to take care of, so have a look into the compression issue and go from there.

Exclamation Old

This saw is too old to spend any money on. Not worth it.
The coil / CDI and plug wire is all one unit.
