Husky 55 Chainsaw

I have 2 Husky saws that I'm rebuilding. Both saws were in pieces and given to me in a box.The first one is a Husky 55 967 05 29-00 s/n 04 510 3077.I rebuilt this saw with the best parts in the box not intending to rebuild the second. Well....I was so pleased with the rebuild of the first saw that I might go ahead with the second saw Husky 55 1997 7322938.

Which brings me to my question, the left over flywheel (part# 503 79 00-01, and I'm not sure which saw this was on origonally) only has one starter pawl/rivet/spring. Is there any chance this flywheel setup only used one pawl? The other flywheel used on the first saw has 2. There is a hole for a 2nd rivet on the second flywheel, just hopeing that I might not need to track down more parts.

If anyone can decode the saw numbers I would really like to know any info about them. The first saw got a new top end (cylinder/piston/ring), I went with the cheaper Chinese parts and it seems to be running really well. Time will tell though.

I would think two pawls for balancing. The best diagrams I could quickly find appears to have two mounts but one pawl showing. Hello Husky 55 owners or knowledgeable of the 55. Would two be correct? loger
