I know I'm ressurecting an old thread, but I'm cruising through old topics & this one brought back memories.
I had a 2100 in the early or mid eighties.  That thing would CUT!!!
BUT, it had horible vibration issues.  I was using it to cut up log truck loads of firewood & only stopped for fuel.  At the end of a tank of gas I would literaly have to pry the fingers on my handlebar hand straight :'(
We parted ways for something less efficient but more comfortable(don't remember what now...).

That's funny.  Must be a perspective thing, because the 1100CD I ran a while ago was the smoothest 6ci saw I've ever ran by far.  Of course I'm used to the big old North American monsters....:D

Those big Husqvarnas could sure use a comp release.  Not just to make live easier on us......but to preserve the starter parts as well.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

That arm breaker I have has plenty of power it's just such a fuss to get started .The rascal is the easiest saw I've ever seen to flood then the fun begins because you'll about pull your arm out of the socket before it will putt .

It's probabley just a learning curve .The Stihls on a cold start I just choke and pull away until the first hiccup ,let off the choke and the next pull they fire .

That danged big Huskey it's about two pulls with the choke and if you do a few more that sunny beach is flooded .

Maybe it is perspective, but I've run big Stihls, & a much later Husky 3120 & never had the same issue.
The saw was definetly pre AV!

 :D I remember those 2100 arm busters as well. No shortage of power but oh my what a bear to start. I sold one with a 42" bar to a little Mexican who was logging pine in Guadalajara. He wanted a 48" but we couldn't get one in time. He had to be felling them two at a time. Never did see him try to pull it over.

They should have built the things with a decomp .A D handle helps though .

These old rascals were the hot ticket at one time for building hot saws .

I've never had the occasion to get inside one to look at the porting scheme but assume it's a double tunnel transfer .Fact other than a couple little 335 trim saws and one 181 I've never been inside any Husqvarnas .

I will have to say again that old duffer will eat up the wood once you get the thing started .It can be such a cantankerious SOB  at times though which is why it spends most of it's time on the shelf .On the other hand you can't wear them out if they don't run too often .

My 2100 won't oil. I took the oiler off and blew some compressed air in the oil tank hole to get the oiler primed but no dice. Silly question but do the oilers go bad or am I missing something. Is there a oil vent? The manual oiler works fine. This saw is one strong M F'r. I can't wait to get her in some big wood.

Have you checked the two oil lines behind the muffler?
