    Husqvarna 181 project saw. I've already have a 288 project so I don't really need this one. The piston looks good and I got a little over 170psi compression on my gauge. Put some gas in it and it fired up but the carb probable needs a kit. A couple of things I noticed are, the little tab on the carb that the idle adjustment screw pushes against has been cut off for some reason and the coil wire to the switch is missing a little insulation. There could be some other things that need addressed. $250 plus shipping. This only going to be for sale this week end, Monday I'll be giving it a better look over and ordering the parts needed to get it in working order. I'll get some pics and a video tomorrow.

    I got some pics. It's a little dirty but it's to hot and humid to clean it up. I'm going to drop the price to $225 because of the cracks in the top cover, a new one is around $30. I've got to take care of something this morning but when I get done I'll fire it up on video.

    Well both tire shops in my little town are closed today so I did have time to get a video of it running. Fist time I tried starting it flooded out, changed the plug and got it started. As you can see in the video, it's getting to much fuel and needs a kit or new carb.
