    Gotta go into work for a few hours, but after that I should have the beast running.

    The saw will be getting a Hooskie drilled Decomp as well. After all, they’re made in Germany anyhow. I like them better than the Squeal ones.

    Its funny, I don't even use de comps when starting 200+ psi saws.
    I may install them but don't use them.
    I really don't think they help much

    Perhaps I’ll pass on it then. I still like them, but I find that they make a saw hard to start. They help on initial startup before the oil assembly oil burns off.

    The biggest issue is the saw firing before TDC, not the displacement or compression.

    Agreed on making the saw start harder. I rarely use the decomp because of that.

    Think you could fit a Maytag engine in a saw bud?
