Husky 2100
« on: February 24, 2014, 02:21:07 PM »
 A buddy inherited a 2100. He can not find the ser#,   where should it be located?  Also can a decompression valve be installed in it?  It has not been used for at least 10 years and he's trying to get it running. It does turn over with 1 man holding the saw and 1 man pulling the cord.   ;D  Any tips for him to get it running.  Once this one is running he wants to fix an old 288.  He's a lurker here so he will see your questions and answers.

Check the bushing in the starter drum .The OEM is nylon and if it's worn the drum will run eccentric making it about like rope starting a Harley .I couldn't tell you were to get another .I myself make one of brass .

Trot on down to the Stihl dealer and buy a 460 rescue saw D-handle .About 6-7 bucks well spent .

I'm sure you could add a decomp but I've never seen a 2100 fitted with one .

It might help since it's sat so long to give it a good shot of good penetrating oil in the cylnder in case the rings might be a little stiff .For that matter it no doubt will need a carb rebuild .

I'm not certain how really popular the 2100 Husqvarna is any more .At one time they had a following in the PNW .

What I can say from being an owner of one is this is a very powerful saw .Not one that should be taken likely nor used by the inexperianced .

  The new owner is experienced but like me not a chainsaw mechanic.  It was his FILaws who had a tree service. He wants to give it its just reward. :)

timberjack395, when I burnt mine the strings kept popping and if i closed my eyes it was like being at the symphony. That was after a couple of boiler makers though.
