Check the bearings
Check the bearings, Take the back plate off. Piston and sleeve check them, Take the glow off try truning the motor.
Thats just my 2 cents

what type of starter are you trying to use to start it with? I have a 70 and I use a 18v battery on mine.

Your starter, starter battery, and/or starter wiring would be the first place to look.

My Hobbico Torquemaster 90 with a couple of 6-cell "C" sized car nicad packs never had a problem turning my OS 70 over, even on cold days.

Replace the 6-cell packs with 7-cell packs, and the darn thing works even better.

I have also had problems to start an OS 70. I noticed that even a fresh 12v automotive battery turns the crank over, but not fast enough. besides it gets jammed at times because of the natural engine compresion.
Now I use 5s1p A123 LiFe cells that produce 16.5v and turns the crank with no hesitation. Ofcourse, the engine starts much easier.
I think any type of battery that delivers 14.5v and above will do the trick.
If you are able to turn the crank by hand, while holding the start shaft, then your engine compresion (or motion) is not abnormal, it just needs more power to get it started.

I have a Dynatron starter with two 3300mah 6cell nimh packs and have no trouble turning the motor over. Before starting try backing the flywheel/fan off compression upstroke.YogiVelocity Is A State Of Grace Get Some Now !

I guess it has to be a combination of cold weather and starter.
Here I have no problems starting my OS70 or the 91 with the hobbico 90 and a 7amps 12v lead batt.

The only time I had trouble was once that the heli sat for a long time and the engine was a bit dry with old oil in it.

I guess the cold weather (where ever you are "Location: too cold here" might have to do with it...
