Nope, how do you know it is the de-compression system that is doing it or what is the problem, just won't start???

The idea of the low compression release is to have low compression. It can only malfunction in two ways.

One be stuck closed causing high compression at start and then stuck open where it has low compression all the time.

Either way, never heard of it failing before.

I would look elsewhere for the issue

Hard starting

Sure sounds like your valves, they are a son of a gun to adjust. The dealer wants $300 to do it. After I did mine it started right up.
