    Echo cs 60 new find exhaust strange......

    I really don't think its a 1970 model. Look for a Kioritz tag where the sn is. The '70 models didn't say Kioritz. The muffler is on upside down. It should point to the chain side...Bob

    Dumpster found 041 Stihl with stripped bar stud hole.

    My buddy found this 041 in a dumpster because the front bar hole was stripped and it looked like JB Weld didn't fix it. So he called and asked if i could fix it. No problem bring it over. Tapped the front hole out to 3/8" and made a new bar stud on my trusty SB Lathe from 4140 steel. Didn't make...

    Echo CS-60S has (had) no spark.

    Been trying to work on this saw for a year and health issues have kept me from it. Feeling a little better so i thought i would tear into it. Hmmm don't think that wire is supposed to be between the coil and the flywheel. Bought a few new coils a year ago but maybe this one will be ok....Bob

    Any Machinist out there that could help me with a chainsaw dyno?

    I posted again at 4:30 am after my 2 am but it didn't show up. Here is a a few things i though of. Use a good grade of tool steel like WH or 1144 Stressproof don't just use any old steel you need some strength where its turned down. Increase the 1/2" turned down to 5/8" for some more strength...

    Any Machinist out there that could help me with a chainsaw dyno?

    Or just a lathe and use it like a mill. I do it all the time. Here is how i make sure the shaft is on center with the cutter. I put in a center and press the part up against the center with my steel rule pinched in between. If it leans to the right at the top its too low. If it leans to the left...

    when is a BIG saw (100cc) worthwile

    I have a 100cc Echo and most of the time its too big. But when the tree is down and topped like i have 100's of then it makes good sense because i can cut it into firewood lenghts in a few minutes. Esp on the bigger logs it just hogs the wood...Bob

    Echo model ID help.

    Just tell me where to send one :). The biggest problem with those small saws is they overheat real bad when its hot out so it will run better ported but won't cut any longer until its hot. I have been running my CS-315 since '77 and its still perfect...Bob

    Echo model ID help.

    Yup a CS-302. One of the first light saws from the early 70's. Made until about '79 when the CS-302S took its place. Good saw i have a few of them in Kioritz, Craftsman and JD versions. Some had 25 AP chain and some had the 91S which i switched all of mine over to. Same disp of the CS-315 just...
