It is on Acres, just a matter of interpreting which model number as I am sure you have found.

If you know how to work with points, you should be good, if not ... either make or buy a diagnostic light. It will save you a lot of time, especially if you have it before you need it.

This has to be the oldest Husky that I have ever had. The darn thing cranks and runs really well, but I just got it, and haven't taken it to the woods yet. Perhaps somebody here can shed a little light on this one for me. For 125.00, I think I did ok. :yes: View attachment 730394 View attachment 730395 View attachment 730396

These have been showing up lately either whole running or for parts. How are these dated?
If I remember correctly there’s no anti vibration on these saws? I remember my hands cramping up very well in the early days. You youngsters have it made today.

I had one with the chain brake. They must have been rare as I sold the chain brake for right at what you gave. Also parted out the rest of the saw and still have parts left for easily over $300.

New world thought on an old world convention.

Practica 65 ASS - as in basic Assembly method (or plan/document/partslist/assembly) 65

Sort of an ancient way of saying model, version, or series. Old school way of giving a worker a tag that tells them what to build rather than a form or production list. There is a good chance this was built by one person rather than an assembly line.

This link may help some; http://www.barrettsmallengine.com/husqvarna/65chainsaw.html

The model was made in Sweden from 1968 as far as I know, and production transferred to the TOMOS factory in Yugoslavia around 1974.

As the saw in question has no reference to TOMOS or Yugoslavia on the tag, I assume that it is one of the older Swedish made ones.

Thanks to all of you for those informative posts. I love Husqvarnas, so that makes this old one more "special". I've had many Stihls, but somehow, my keepers are all Huskys. :)
