I opened up one of the seal bores on my 1100g so that it would take a modern and available seal.Ordered from Chainsawr and it was the wrong one so I sent it back along with the seal I pulled from the case. Hopefully they can match it up. If not I’m going to turn the crank to 16mm and bore the case to 24mm and use a metric seal. Just gotta be patient I guess lol
You might want to replace the sparkplug wire, having been sitting so long they turn to crap. I brought a 25' roll of 5mm wire to do that to a lot of the saws.I fiddled with a blue XL12 and C72 today for 2 hours. Both had been setting for decades.
The XL12 had fire and then lost it. The C72 barked at me once. Both carbs probably need attention.
It got so close to my confidence, after I quit I went and started 4 of my good saws. 3 to 4 pulls each and they were running.
It was nice to hear them make noise.
That did come to mind. Is the 5mm wire the stranded type? I've looked around for some in bulk. I will check with our NAPA store.You might want to replace the sparkplug wire, having been sitting so long they turn to crap. I brought a 25' roll of 5mm wire to do that to a lot of the saws.

It would be very hard to find a saw of that age to be as good. Good job.Did remove and clean the muffler. Other than the lid, there was nothing else in there.....no baffles at all. Normal for this saw? Saw came with case, several chains, a new chain, and original paper manual. The avg cost of each saw in the 9 saw deal is $17.77. Saw doesn't looked used much to me so I think its worth putting in for the 2 starter cover bolts and one bar cover nut. It does seem to have a little stiffness in the starter mechanism. When I get the bolts, I'll take it back off and try some lube.
There are 2 later model Homelites post magnesium case error, 3 old Stihls, 1 Echo, and 2 Poulans. I should create my own thread for these I guess to keep it less scatter brained. Anyway, I've gone thru the old Poulans and they were runners. The echo is in another thread "Echo stickies" should bring it up. Clink the link below and see if that gets the place where I originally posted the purchase etc. I'm post #311 I think.It would be very hard to find a saw of that age to be as good. Good job.
Are the other 8 Homelite's?
That 3100 looks great and sounds good, congrats. What type of chain are you running on that 3100?Finally cut a bit with the 3100 that was finished up last year. There's a rebuild thread on HoH. Chain needed the rakers took down a bit, but it was fun to finally run it some.
