    Those old echo's are great saws, built like a tank. A little bit heavy compared to today's saws but they work very well. 40/1 will work well for a gas mix, make sure to use a quality two stroke oil. CONGRATULATIONS.......:clap:

    You wont gain as much as you would with a new saw, because they aren't stopped up like the new ones are. You'll get some, but don't forget to adjust the carb when you're done. The muffler itself is underneath on those, a little more work to get off but not bad. Have fun....show us some pics :popcorn:
