    I picked up a MS170 on the C-list. It was filthy dirty, has a torn plug boot & a slightly bent chain tensioner. Cleaned it up, put on a BG 12" carving chain/sprocket & test ran it. I am getting 13,000 rpm., WAO....it this correct & if not what should the rpm's be?. The thing screams. Thanks to y'all here i had one saw a year ago....now 5 & counting...:help: :help:

    13 sounds low to me. My 180 turned 14,700 stock. I've heard of some turning 15,100. Did you clean the air filter?

    Yep, and the muff screen. It went thru dead dry walnut with no prob, so i guess it's in the the ball park. I was suprised how much lighter it is than the 210. Now if i could only get some carving talent on CL i would be good to go.....:laugh:

    I swear i don't know what was on this saw....some kinda mutated congealed blob that was resistant to every cleaner i had except the dental tools. And it was stuck on svery single surface including & especially the the handle....which thinking of the possible source disturbs me.........

    Try BarKeeper's Friend--$1.65 at Wal-mart. Good on paint


    I have had good luck cleaning painted srfaces with Bar Keeper's Friend. It removes all kinds of stains, but is gentle. Rub lightly for a period of time. That's not the same saw, is it?

    Send it to me, I'll carve something with it and send it back (the saw, that is):greenchainsaw:
    Butt seriously, what does the bar run? I useda carve a lotta stone, and have a ms 200 rear handle on the way for carving wood

    Got off fleaby, guy's handle is Sprocketorgan, It was $88 shipped incl the 1/4 drive sprocket & chain. Shopping around it seemed resonable. He didn't offer the sprocket in his auction, but threw it in atfter i em'd him a question about the proper saw/bar application.

    Hey Lake thanks, it sounded so good i didn't really want to mess with the carb.
