    Want to Sell Lombard AP-42 with parts saw

    My buddy Ken is getting rid of these two saws, I’m calling the second a parts Saw but could very well be a runner, it’s just missing the starter cover. Both have good compression and the complete Saw runs on prime. He is looking to get $150 plus shipping for both. Shoot me a PM if your interested.

    SOLD!!!! MS361

    Low hour 361, it had a lean run condition that I fixed by replacing the fuel line, I’m assuming it was run like that for awhile because the piston was roached, I put a new OEM piston in, the cylinder had some marks showing, but I couldn’t hang a nail or anything on it, so I started with 300 grit...

    Stihl 039 rebuild

    I picked up an 039 for next to nothing, but it is trashed. I'm looking to rebuild and I was wondering if I should just replace the top end, or order an entire engine that is ready to install.

    Sachs Dolmar Injector Carburetors

    After reading Mr. Marks post and learning a little bit about the Sachs injector carbs it got me wondering how exactly it works, does anyone have any literature or can break it down and explain it to me, that way if I ever need to make repairs on mine I know what going on internally.

    Poulan 2000 won't start

    I was recently given a poulan 2000. It will not start. It seems to have good enough compression, it has spark. I'm thinking maybe the carb? I just don't have much experience with them so any help on how to troubleshoot would be great.
