I will give you the same answer I did on the other site  and Spike is 100% correct , donot use the decompressure , that will be 99.9% of your not starting problem, it lets to much compression off .

Funny I hear this because I never use a decomp on my saws except one....my 090Av, with that puppy it's foot in the rear handle , left hand on the top handle with thumb holding the decomp button down. :D
Smaller saws [even my 066 Mag has no decomp] I don't set the decomp on my 372 562 etc. start cold with fewer pulls with more compression.

I have a 066 Mag that has no decompression valve or a place to put one. It is no problem to start.



I have four 372's but they are the Schnuerle ported old style. I sometimes will start them with no decompression. Depends on what mood I'm in. But without using the decompression, I usually start them on the ground. I'm not the man that I used to be.

Nice looking pictures, you must have a good lens on your camera. I have to upgrade mine some day.
 Yes I'm not 32 yrs old anymore either and now I feel my limitations too. :D
Looking at your picture of your 372 that reminds me that I should send my 272 off to Bertrand Hotsaw for a good work over, I hear he has had good success modding the 272. Mine is still barely broke in, the little it has cut it only cut hardwood to keep it clean.
I found this '93 saw a few years back with no hours on it, clean as a whistle.
Was Schnuerle a saw modder or just a porting technique back in the day?

Schnuerle is the style of porting using a flat top piston with the transfer ports blowing from the side towards the opposite side of the combustion chamber from the exhaust port.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schnuerle_porting

The 066 is a Brent Combs concoction and the 372 is a BB ported by Snoopy

The camera used for the Stihl 066 picture is a Olympus E20N SLR digital. Cut4fun took the 372 picture with his camera

The starting without the decomp button worked amazingly well, thanks for the tip.

The saw runs with the L fully screwed shut, CCW, that aint right, is it?
