Agreed. I just did that once again to save a Mac Silver Eagle. Dag Gum it, that saw still runs well once again. New plumbing was all that it needed. Hard to kill these puppies.Ok saw if it runs. Fuel and oil lines are a pain to replace. If got one, runs when it wants to run. Mine was made in Mexico before China bought it.

I heard that rumor also. This repair I made was done after the owner said, "It's all yours. I don't want to even try to fix it. Shelf queen for 20 years." First thing I did was check compression: 140 psi. All the fuel and oil lines tubes were rotting away as Steve predicted and the primer was shot. The Silver Eagle might be a hair smaller than the 3216, but most of the parts overlap. Nice project for a rainy/wintry mix day but you need a lot of patience and at least 30" of tubing to replace all those lines.The Italian macs were neat well made saws, very smooth runners, weren't they built in relation to partner, or Alpina?
