Thx! Pioneerguy600.Your saw is a Danarm, they were made in the UK and many were exported as parts and assembled in the territories of the UK, namely Canada and Australia. It appears the bottom brace for the rear handle is broken or missing, they were a rather weak link on these saws.
It might be a model 171 or a 173, they were very close in the looks dept.
I started to dig through this thread looking for a match, but the thread is just too long. So, here's the deal. A guy I work with gave me this saw just to get it out of his workshop. He was preparing to restore it but lost interest. Can anyone out there tell me what model Homelite saw this is? (I also have a box full of parts that he swears will make this a complete saw when assembled) Thanks

This is the Wright/Poulan blade saw that I'm currently working on. Replaced the fuel lines but I have to take the carburetor apart now. It will fire if I pour gas in it but won't draw it in from the tank. Very loud, interesting saw. From what I read on here it was favored by meat cutters and timber framers. I'd like to hear it roar again.
I pulled it from the metal trash at my local transfer station. Anyone know where to find the model # on it, or what model it is?
It's the same as the Poulan 306A though, built by Poulan for Wright. See on bottom of the tag where it says Beaird Poulan.
You have a 306A based reciprocating saw. Very rare and great shape

Sorry, I missed the part where you said 306A "based" reciprocating saw. Interesting that it was based on the 306 chassis. I read some history of the Poulan/Wright line and it is a little murky. Very cool saws though and they must have been exciting for their time. I need to get some smaller wrenches this week so I can pull the carb. One of the mount screws is in a really tight place. Carb screws in through the back. It's a tillotson carb, hopefully easier to find gaskets for than the Carter carb on other Wright saws which I've heard is very difficult to track down kits for.It's the same as the Poulan 306A though, built by Poulan for Wright.
