    As many here probably know, I'm a long standing member of the Off Topic Rep Ho Club. Well the rep is played out.....so these days we just sit around over there and tell dirty jokes and kick one another in the sack.

    At least that's the way it should go.

    My good friend Thomas1 asked me if I could help him out with an 084. He traded for this saw and felt that it needed a little help.

    Tom has been a great friend to me....we've traded saws and have met in person to do it. Anytime I've needed parts or even whole saws for parts Tom has never hesitated to send me whatever he had.....and on his dime.

    How could I turn him down??????? Well I didn't.

    Here's the packing label........I was scared to open it for awhile.

    Here's some shots of the "parts"......

    [​IMG]

    There were two cases in the box. One had the lower muffler bosses busted out and the other had bad bearings, so Jon split both of them in order to make one.

    This is the "better" case.......

    [​IMG]

    It had been ran so long with bad AV bushing that the tank had rubbed through the case into the flywheel housing.

    This thing is ready for the jug......

    [​IMG]

    But now that's a little bit of a problem........the only jug Tom had is one that someone did some porting on. I wanna warn you....these are pretty graphic images.

    This is how it arrived......

    [​IMG]

    The ring support was gone too. Looked like someone chiseled it out. :sad:

    [​IMG]

    It ingested something too.

    I reworked the porting as best I could.......smoothed the scratch in the plating and raised the tranfers to better match the high exhaust.

    [​IMG]

    After checking the compression even with the popup piston someone has made it was only blowing 155psi. So we went ahead and cut the squish band flat and shaved the base a little. That raised it to 185psi.

    So on together it goes.......
