    Pretty nice looking Husqvarna 359. I had planed on going through it but picked up a 2159 and don't need two of the same saw. It was leaking oil from the oil line where it goes into the case and I put a little Hondabond on it for a temporary fix. It's a little hard starting but seems to run good once started. I'm listing this as a project because I haven't had a chance to go through it. I will get get a pic of the piston and do a compression check sometime today. $225 + shipping

    I don't know but I'll get a pic of the bottom when I get one of the piston.

    Got a compression check and started it. As you can see in the video it needs tuned or maybe a carb kit. I'll get a piston pic up soon.

    That's a heck of a deal for someone. I just re-built a 199 last week and threw it on my shelf. Thats probably all it needs.

    Piston pics and I forgot to mention that on one of the top cover clips the part that keeps it from falling off the case when you unlock it is broke off,

    That carburetor has been bugging me so I ordered a kit this morning. Friday morning I'll be putting the sale of this saw on hold while I rebuild the carb and since I'm doing that I might as well do a gasket delete, vacuum check and muffler mod. If everything checks out I'll put it back up but I'll have to raise the price.

    You can tell it's summer. Easy 60cc project like this has 2nd and 3rd in line the day it's listed after labor day. I've dealt with OP more than once, buy with confidence.
