Hello everyone, I was just given a Skilsaw 1645 type 4 chainsaw today and was wondering what I need to be on the look out for when trying to get it started. The man said it has maybe 12 hours on it, he is the original owner. I know NOTHING about older chainsaws so any pointers would be fantastic. Speaking of points- what type of ignition does this use? If it is points how do I service them? Even just a good redirect to a video would be helpful. I am going to order a RK-23HS rebuild kit for the carb because I am sure things have been varnished over. Anthing else I should be replacing? Thanks so much in advance!
