    Nice. I'd like to find an 064 to rebuild. When you disassemble the saw, check the flywheel and key. If they are damaged, then your timing will be off which will cause the backfires.

    I figured you would remove the clutch and flywheel before removing the cylinder and piston if you were gonna do a "complete rebuild".
