yea i bought one so throw me under the bus,, there is a guy that has a bunch of these on fleabay,, heck for 50.00 shipped i got one of the 45ccer's, if it didn't run then i wasn't out much,,,, well it got here today so i fueled it up and it fired on 3 pulls,,this thing had never seen wood,, i just had to fatten up the low and high side to make it run right which was easy since it didn't have limiters,, i should have stuck it in wood but it was dark,,, any who this is what i found,, it has an adjustable oiler,,6 pin rim,, split case and a decent air filter,,, the one thing i did find was this has the most choked up muffler i have ever seen,,, its hard to tell in the pics but it had a baffle with 2 small holes and a huge cat,, well i took the baffle and cat out and made the opening in the front of the muffler since there was 0 clearance on the top and sides for another port,,, i am going to put it back together in the morn and see how it runs and more then likely i will end up pulling the base gasket,, i do have to say the metal it is made from is cheap looking,, looks like pot metal,, here are the pics for now,, will have more pics tomorrow and vids,,

It's amazing that you can get a saw with that kind of engine for that price.
he has a bunch of them from 37-45 cc,, i think i may get a 37ccer just for sh*** and giggles,,, the last chinesse saw i had,, if you remember,, it was a screamer,, i took the base gasket out and it blew 200 psi,,, it was a fun little saw to run

Sweet. Been curious about these. Bout bought one myself just to tear apart. They are cheap but the auger and talked I have are running strong. Besides with a name like Viper Engines, you can't go wrong.
