Old Homelite chainsaw

I have an old Homelite that's been sitting neglected in my shed. I tried to start it but I can't even pull it through with the cord. I removed the plug and it pulls through fine. I've put release oil in it and let it sit. I've pulled the plug and pulled it through a few times. As soon as I try with the plug, it feels as if it's liquid locked. What is my next step, please?

    Sounds like the recoil assembly is binding up.

    What is the model number? Maybe it has a compression release.

    As Roy says a model number might get at least a little better response.
     
    And if no one here can help you could always try this site:
    http://houseofhomelite.proboards.com
     
    They are going to want the model number and if the S/N is on it that would help too.
