    Nice.
    If you want to sell that one or the 340 let me know as I know someone looking.
    I can get you set up directly if you'd like.

    Funny story Sage.
    One time my boss used to not take care of getting us fuel and always wanted us to wait until Thursday(his payday) to fuel the semi's. This particular Wednesday I was downtown Grand Rapids and my truck ran out of fuel in the middle of a major intersection that is also at the end of the ramp to get off the expressway and at the begging of the ramp to get on the expressway :crazy2:. I'm not sure what made me do this, I think just trying hard to get it to start one last time to get me across the intersection and out of everyone's way, but I had the starter turning the engine over and I shoved it into low gear and I popped the clutch, to my amazement it kept turning and propelled 50k of semi all 42 wheels and tires across the intersection :happy:. I told all the guys about it and a few of the others ended up having to use the same trick, that was not an example of a good employer.

    I fixed the oem carb he needs it now 85-year-old and cuts almost every day.
    About two month's with the poleman carb i'm sending two more when i can.
    Several gallons through it now.
    My friend is cutting pop ups in 268 and 272 pistons for my big bores.
    I prefer them to 372 pistons.
    Comp will be better too with or without base gaskets. 20170910_143449.jpg 20170910_143954.jpg 20170909_152100.jpg

    I see the Brett @GoBigBlue1984 and all I think of is go Michigan, go blue lol.
    That's cool, they are good little saws, and quite fun. Mine will do pretty well to keep up with my 550. It's an angry little saw.

    That's awesome, hope I am still walking when I'm 85, let alone running a saw.
    Which carbs are you running on them.
    When you run the popups are you changing the squish band or leaving it stock.
    I've heard guys liking those pistons in them, it seems it was an old school trick that many have forgotten about or the next generation didn't know about.
    I think we put that same winch on my buddies 400 grizzly, the harbor freight 5000lbs unit. We have lifted his quad offthe ground with it pulling on hangers lol.

    I'm sure he could hook those 2 saws up quite nicely to, he does good work.

    Dolmar 7900 carbs he prefers twin jets to mod and they are easy to get.
    Really helps with torque.
    Just regular pop ups i don't have a way to cut squish.
    That's fine the bump in comp is what i want.
    The 268 deal has been around since the 371 came out lol
    I've run a few over the year's.

    How;s it shaking by you? 66 looks nice.

    P.S. You ever watch the Dr. Blake Mysteries?
