Found out some information. That saw is normally harder to pull over compared to smaller saws , but it has a decompression valve that has to be manually pushed in before starting. If it's not pushed in it will be very hard to pull over. So this button is on the top of the saw some where. I has to be push in for each try of starting. Hope this helps. Noel

Unfortunately I bought this saw second hand and do not know the history of it. I see the flywheel has a fin missing now. Montreal river is not far from here.

This particular model does not have a decompression valve and was not as difficult to pull start before the problem occurred.

If the ignition is not functioning correct can it be lead to a hard pulling over of the engine?

Timing problem, not firing at the right point ? Having a fin broke may put it out of balance. Noel

Cc Bought a junk 038 Stihl and used the ignition coil and she runs marvelous. Still a little bit difficult to pull, but not like it was.  Cuts like a hot knife through butter now. May still need a new carb kit. Will keep you posted.  Thanks for the help. Will keep you posted. (my main profession is author, after all! LOL)

Everything in Canada is more expensive than the US! Paid only $20 for our 038. Got a new coil and a spare pulley. I am pleased with the purchase because of the benefits. Just wondering if the carb is the same size.

Thank you for the encouragement but I only cut out of necessity. Am off grid most of the year. Have to keep watching through the winter months!
