        Hi Tony,

        I only port for local professionals. Shipping saws got way too expensive so I stopped shipping about 4 years ago.

      Hey, pioneerguy. Thanks for the comment back. I'm in Arizona. Looking to find a home for these pioneer parts. Hate to scrap these relics but not much cutting in AZ. anymore. A couple of these p+c's were new sets; Piston, rings and cylinder The rest still have good chrome or I wouldn't have kept them. If not you then maybe you know someone closer to AZ.

      Hi. I have a question i let my freind borrow my stihl ms180c and not it wouldn't start. Thought ot was flooded nope. Gave it a tune up still nothing. Then i opened up the muffler and saw that it had some scoring. Can you verify thst the piston is scored and would probably need a rebuild. If so do i rebuild or buy another chainsaw? Photos r below.

      Good to find some one is still interested in the old pioneers. I used to work on chainsaws ( like a while ago, 30+ yrs.). Just happened across a few milk crates of pioneer p+c's. I've been tripping over then for years.
      1. pioneerguy600
        There is still a few of us working and playing with the old IEL and Pioneer saws, I grew up with them and had a good relationship with our local Pioneer dealer. Ended up with a pretty good collection of the older saws.

      Hi quick question, should the filter bowl on the Pioneer 600 be completely full of fuel or about the haft way mark?
      1. pioneerguy600
        half full is fine

      Hi Again - I thought the air filter would be hard to find, thanks
      Would you have a set of points for a Pioneer 600?
      1. pioneerguy600
        Sorry, I don`t sell my Pioneer parts.

      Hello - I'm searching for an air filter for a 1958 Pioneer 600 part # 426226 is there any to be had?
      1. pioneerguy600
        None of the suppliers of Pioneer parts I have dealt with have them any longer. You might get lucky and find an old Pioneer dealer or shop that repaired old magnesium saws back years ago that might possibly have one leftover. Parts for them are quite scarce.

      DADER--Hello Pioneerguy .I have several Homelite XL saws that require fuel and oil DUCK BILL VALVES.Are you aware of anywhere in Canada [preferably NOVA SCOTIA] where i can purchase?
    13. Ray121473
      Can anyone help me I need to know if there are any other saws share the same oil pump as the jonsered 2250 I need the saw tomorrow and the only place that carries jonsered around me is tractor supply and I would have to order it but there are plenty of places to get stihl and husqvarna pouland and echo

      Hello I was helping a friend get a poulan pro 455 going yesterday'. Well since this saw is a direct descendant from the pioneer family I was wondering if there are any mods that these saws can use to make them more powerful. Looks like the muffler port is already pretty opened up so how about cylinder port work or base gasket removal? Thanks for your time :)

      Hey, I am needing some help finding a primer pump for my grandfathers pioneer 11-30......any suggestions?? I have searched online for days. Any help would be very appreciated.
      1. pioneerguy600
        A working primer pump is scarcer than hen`s teeth, the rubber bits inside them have all turned into black goo by the time I get to see them.
        Mar 20, 2015
      2. Laci
        Any ideas on how to get it running again without the primer pump? Or is it just a loss??

      Hello Pioneerguy,
      I have a IEL chainsaw. Mode# HA-0563. I have had this sitting in my garage for years. I cleaned it up a number of years ago. It ran good. It is in good shape. I put in on a shelf and it has been sitting there ever since. Now I want to sell it to someone who collects them. I am wondering how much it would be worth and if you or someone you know would be interested in it? Thanks.
