Yup, old 6 cube saws and 36" bars seem perfect for each other.
What kind of compression does that rascal have? Mine is ridiculous to the point that I can barely pull it over.
Its surprisingly hard ! I'm 46 yrs old and work outside every day so I don't believe I'm a weakling,but this saw is gonna make me bring my A game when starting.
One trick is to rotate it just past tdc then pull like you mean it! I learned this from members here and it does help.
I have a couple years on ya but can still hold my own with most saws. This one has been the exception so far. Another thing that helps is pulling it over slowly quite a few times with the choke closed then go for it hard with the choke open to let some air through. Still a little too stout for me most days and doesn't get run much as a result.
Well if I go past tdc too far I just start the process over , a lot of times I can sneak a toe in the handle to open the throttle and that helps me.
I wonder if the stihl elasto starter handle would help? I just ordered one for my 088 , if it's a huge difference I might be tempted to buy one for my homie , should be here by Friday at the saw shop.
Suppose to take the punch out of the compression strokes when pulling it over.
I pulled the clutch off on the 1050 today, and it's a rim but its the six drive center on the drum , are these rims still available?
Fed the Homelite some big oak cookies today, she was hungry! Really impressed with the grunt the 1050 has in hard wood I put a 36" skip tooth micro chisel on it and there's no jumpy bog or other hesitation with it.
Log was about 32".
36" bar/chain in hardwood is nothing for that beast
Bad news on the bonus saoxl bow bar saw I got last month, piston is toast and probably the cylinder, but the rest of the saw is physically good. I might try one of those after market p/c kits for it, but its gonna get boxed till then, free saw can't complain.
Bow baw is good also.
Is the compression low? It's hard to tell from the pic but that kind of looks like carbon scoring and not really that bad. I bet it would run like that. I've run some pretty sketchy looking ones.
Compression is bad ,
sounds like its dying when running and the top of the piston edge looks deformed in places.
Yep that piston is gouged bad

Ya, now I see it, shes toast.
Got to use the super 1050A at work today, 3 little pigs got stumped! I did notice cutting on the side that fuel filter placement is important.
I really wish people would stop planting trees next to buildings.
Big thanks to @2broke2ride for hooking me up with a piston/cylinder to use on this saw.
I cleaned it up a couple weeks ago and put it mostly together last night. Few more pieces and it'll be ready to go.
It does need a new sprocket/clutch drum though, the one on it is almost worn through.
I've been looking online and for replacement sprockets it looks like oregon makes one that fits:
Can anyone confirm if this will actually work? Seems odd that it would be a 6 pin 3/8 set up.
Looking good!!!! I'm glad it is going to good use.
I will check my C71 to see what the part number is on the drum. I know its 3/8 but that is all I remember about it lol.
