    Thanks

    It looks like the Olympic or Oleomac saw now efco in the US. It may be the 100cc version.

    They used to use them also before the jaws of life to gain access to vehicles after an mva. Sparks were a big issue especially if there was a fuel spill.

    well I went out and put some fuel in the carb and gave it a few pulls . Nothing happened kept pulling and then all of a sudden I cant pull any more.Pull rope is about half way out and wont go back in.
    It acts like its locked up . So I pull the recoil off and the rope snaps back in place . so I decide to pull the muffler and take a look. It looks ok so I figure I might as well pull the cylinder to see if it is salvagable heres what I found.

    I see why you say it's Jonsy or Husky-based. That's one heck of a machine. I'm guessing you can find a piston for that thing... jug OK?

    Metal and cement dust really plays the devil on those engines over the years. It seems that regardless of how good your air filter system is, dust always finds it's way into the motor.

    jugs perfect but it feels like the missing pieces of the rings got down in the botom end plus it looks like a little milky oil in the bottom of the case. I am not sure where to look or what size piston or brand for that matter. I was hoping someone on here would be able to help me out.

    That milky oil sounds like water got in the oil somehow

    needs to be changed completely cleaned out with fresh oil etc.

    Target saws are considered some of the best for cutting concrete. We use them almost daily on a busy year but most of ours are walk behind diamond blade saws. Very well built equipment though

    The powerhead is very Husky-like indeed!

    They are still in buisness so maybe you can find a piston and rings for it .

    you can usually see the pieces as the crank cases are usually pretty small. I would just fill the case with fuel and turn the crank back and forth slowly to flush out the bearings and then follow up with some brake cleaner to get anything that was stuck in some goo then put a little mix oil back in the bearings before you put it together.

    Calvin,

    I have to say that is one oddball post. Not too many oil changes done on 2 stroke engines.
