Husqvarna 350 won't start

Hello, I have a Husqvarna 350 - its a older model without a fuel primer bulb.

It has good enough compression - and after changing the spark plug, the spark looks great.

I try to start it up and I get nothing at all - I spray starter fluid into carb area - I still get nothing at all - I remove the sparkplug and I can still see some starter fluid "mist" in cylinder - so I know the cylinder is getting something.

I do have the compression release - its set correctly.

The only thing I can think of is even though I do have spark, maybe my timing is off.

Any ideas?

Well, it turns out - I was wrong-. I play alot with lawnmowers - so my idea of good compression is not the same for a Chainsaw. On the Chainsaw I had mybe 80psi after many pulls. And after research I see around 150psi is good. I then removed my muffler and saw scoring on the piston.

I went to ebay and for $60 (shipping included) I got a piston,ring, bearing, and cyclinder head. I replaced them and it really wants to run now - I played with the low idle,fast settings to no avail - it idles, but now bogs down when you give it gas, the choke is in.

Sounds like the carb is the problem now.

carb or clogged air filter could be the problem
