Can't seem to post to my previous question re the starting of an older
Poulan chain saw.
So, will try here.
Where is this "compression release" that was mentioned to check usually
found on the engine ?
What does it look like ?

Your Poulan won't have one. Almost aLL 'Big Box store chainsaws do not, they are too small to need one.
On a saw that has one it is a button to be pushed right on top of the motor housing.
I had a saw taht was exhibiting the same thing, one time pull fine, then so hard I sometimes couldn't pull it through. Turned out to be in the starter, the cord would get stuck between the housing and rotor.
