Okay here's a little upate: Turns out I don't need a heli-coil, it had the wrong sized spark plug in it. I also noticed that after I did that it seemed to gain some compression and it popped over a few times. At this point I'm going to order a carb kit and rebuild it. The old wick fuel intake appears to be letting fuel flow (I put a full tank of gas in it and let is sit since Monday) but I can't get it to pull any fuel. I can get fuel to the carb by tipping the saw up after which it popped over. So I'm getting closer to having a running saw. Also it turns out its just and XL not an XL-12
It's not the equipment that makes a professional, it's the operator.
