Question about McCulloch Garden
I pulled the spark plug, put it back in the coil wire then groundedit to the engine. Pull the cord & got a weak orange spark, pulled the cord again - nothing. Let it set for awhile & tried it again, 1st pull spark, after that - nothing! someone told me to disconnect the oil sumption wire, where's that located? John Babor

remove the spark plug. And pull the cord again. if the carb float is stuck down or you overfilled the oil you could be hydro-locking the engine. Check.

The fact that your engine turns over easily with the spark plug removed simply means that, with the plug removed, there is no compression, so the piston goes up and down very easily.
If it has been a while since you ran the machine, and if you left gas in it, your carb may have gotten gummed up from the gas losing it viability and turning to something like varnish. You might try spraying carb cleaner into the carb (with the air filter removed), let it sit for a few minutes, then try starting. In the future, you probably should get some fuel stablizer (available at almost any hardware store) and add it to the fuel that you use for your small machines. It will keep the gas viable for a much longer period of time.
Hope that you are lucky enough that the carb cleaner, a good dose, will work. If not, you may have to disassemble and clean out your carb. (if you've never done that, a series of digital camera photos so you know where to put things back is a good idea).

SOURCE: Can't pull the starter cord,
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Remove the muffler and clean out the exhaust port and screen. You will have to disassemble the muffler and clean off or replace the screen item 8 of this link:
Before taking the muffler apart... unhook the spark plug and just pull it though with the muffler removed. If it pulls normally you know you have found the problem.
If it still pulls hard...check the exhaust port of the cylinder head for 2 tiny holes (not screw holes) Some have them some don't depending upon the year of the saw. If you do find 2 small holes that appear clogged with carbon... do your best to clean them out.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Testimonial: "TRIED SOULTION BUT THAT DIDN'T HELP."
your cord is too long is why its binding up ,,,on the tee hand where you put your hand on to pull,,,,take a screw driver and push up the tied knot out and away from the tee handle,,,,take and make another knot about 8 inches and pull the cord back into the tee handle then try it again. Most have a long rope, cord etc for maximum pull,,sometimes they go overboard on the length and it binds up on the rewind of the recoil system

Testimonial: "Tony, Thank you for the help. You're right about the cord being long. It was a strain on my wrist to pull the length of the cord."
