Good morning, NEED A 90cc saw, what has need to do with it?? Lol I went over close to Urbana to get a used up 661 to have a stroker built (98.6 cc IIRC) just want to have one to play with cause the ported 661 does all required.
Speaking of which, anybody know a builder with Bridgeport to machine crankcase for a 660 crank?? Who's willing to make that saw for me? I should have enough fund's and the 660 crank:chainsaw: like a new toy ya know.
Well when you have a bunch of ported 70cc saws(couple are ported 79cc) and normal don't cut anything over 28", they more than take care of business:chainsaw:.
I was just up at Kevin's GTG hanging with redfin, I was watching intently as they stripped a 500i down and turned the base after cutting the squish band. I also had an opportunity to run dals 500i that Kevin ported, it felt way lighter than a 661 and it was a very strong runner.
I thought Jon was going to do the conversion for you.

>So I call the dealer and he happened to have two in stock :clap: , and they were only like $14. Buy the time I left I had spent 140

did u buy 10 gaskets? :popcorn2:
No, hoping I can get it right with one lol.
that's not a laffing matter! can be easy to do. I have had a close call or two. when I fill up and get ready to leave the gas station.. I ponder being ready for take-off... and ask... the pump, chk side mirrow... the pump? and it is not in still attached! right? right!! ~

I like to get a receipt at the pump, I suppose it could help someone forgetful remember to remove the hose too :innocent:.
30's! wow :cold:

good luck with the mower's oil leak, chipper. I am rooting for you! :happybanana:just be sure you don't install the part to the pad with gasket... then tighten one corner down to spec... then do the others in sequence... :cool:

lol, :laugh: sorry chipper! j/king... :)

:givebeer:

I am anticipating a :numberone: report! if in doubt, do it like V did... ;)

Image result for image no oil leaks
Got a little distracted, went and bought another splitter :happy:. They haven't been coming up on Craigslist as often this yr so I figured id better jump on it, they also had a tractor they were considering selling, but it seems they will be keeping it at least for the time being. I did try however as it had a backhoe and a rototiller, it was the same size as mine in a newer version(2015) with a 33hp(guessing) engine, it is a 3301. Tomorrow's a new day, for q new deal :).

I'm a motor head and tried to keep a conversation going. He did state that many expressed interest in having one built. Don't know if his new shed is finished with work shop, which is another aspect.
A built 500i is also of interest to me just cause it sounds nice for play.
Just kidding about the difference in our perspectives

Well I guess when you're ready to get it built you'll need to see if he's ready to build one :).
No need for an apology. I knew what you were saying and I understand that perspective too, probably no need for a guy to have 15-20 70cc saws any more than having one or two that are 90cc's :innocent: .
Have a great night Tony.

Good morning everyone. It's 56 and misting here with sun and clouds and a high of 61 in the forecast.

I got a new phone yesterday and just added tap a talk. I hope that this works.

Thanks , slept well so don't know how the night went lol.
I've got a couple lil ones 017 &170 and couple mediums 046 & 460 then the medium large 661. None over 100 cc tho since they haven't shown up at auction yet. And to the best of my knowledge the 5-6 foot diameter stump (20' tall guessed) still awaits attention which wood be troubling for the 70 cc saws. Especially milling slabs:chainsaw:. When this carona crap is off the news may be the time to make that trip to fell that 28,500# ,guestimate, standing log.
Enjoy safely y'all
