Yeah, sometimes the old cord can get so stiff it just doesn't work anymore. Did you replace the cord with the same size as what was in there? Could be that the cord was replaced with the wrong size at some point. What you describe about the cord jamming itself is most often due to a crackked starter pulley. Fairly common on 200 series saws like the 266. The pulley spreads were the crack is and allows the cord to double up and jam. Not good at retracting either.
