    Have to start buying them 2 sizes too big. I try to do that with my saws too, nobody wants a saw that is too small.

    The 1-52 drew firewood duty tonight. This is one of my favorite saws to run. Just like my grandfathers.[​IMG]

    I was out cutting earlier today as well.My neighbor had several trees taken down by the state & I was welcome to the wood.I had mt 10-10,Super 10-10,& my newly acquired PM700 without a chain brake handle.Lol The 700 was used for only 1 cut & it impressed me.I had to noodle the base log because it was too big for me to load by myself.Two loads of ash & a load of pine for bon fires.Tomorrow I'll need to get at least one more load of pine at another location.When it's pushing 85 degrees,it gets quite uncomfortable.

    I was at a local antique engine and tractor show this past weekend and was surprised to come across an MC91B Kart engine complete with carb and Gem muffler. It was a good price I think at $400, but unfortunately I still could not swing that currently.

    My 10-10a and pm700 are 2 of my favorite saws to run as well. I feel the 10-10 was/is the best cordwood saw ever made.

    I picked up another 610 a few days ago & got it in the mail today.It only had a 16 in.B&C on it so I put a 20 in.on it.The saw fired right up & ran great,so I went to put it in some wood to check it out & the chain slipped a lot.I figured the clutch was shot,so I took the clutch & drum off & put one on from another saw I bought a few months ago.The part that acts like an inner bar plate was all chewed up,so I had one laying around that was in excellent shape & put that on with the newer clutch & drum.I went to test it out again & the same thing happened,but this time it was smoking & slipping.I cleaned up the drum with brake cleaner to make sure there was no oil or grease in the drum or on the shoes.Maybe the 2nd drum & clutch wasn't good too?I can buy a new clutch on Ebay for about $30.The clutch surely won't go to waste,but I also don't like to spend money on something I don't have to.

    So, im working midnight shift this week and checking out ebay and a new listing just showed up that made me scratch my head... a mcculloch 1-50 for $3000.00 that belonged to john wayne in the 60's that also has a chevy piston in it?? I truly hope its a joke cause it was funny to read. Funny thing is same guy sold the same pictured saw already for waaaay less. Looking at his sold items.

    I know that guy,he's on my list,a well known hot saw builder from central CA. He did that as a joke in response to the outrageous prices asked by quite a few Ebay sellers lately. I thought it was hilarious myself.

    In Fall 2016 I found a decent 550 runner about an hour to my west (not many big old saws here in the land of corn,soybeans,cattle & hogs) for $100 with 30" hardnose bar,at the same time I already had a pristine 550 with same bar on the way from Oregon for $300 shipped. Hated to back out of the local one since I was working 12 hr days & the guy held it 4 days for me until I could go pick it up on the weekend.

    Its now considered a parts donor since quite a few parts fit several other models from same era.Dont think I did too bad looking back,considering what ridiculous prices are being asked now.

    I got the 610 cutting like it should.Would you believe that I had to put on a 3rd clutch & drum before I finally got a good one?

    I got this bar on a 10-10 , but I'm unsure of the original application . The bar is 16" hardnose.

    That looks like a K095 mount which was used on some Macs according to my Oregon book,but not sure if it was supposed to be used on the 10-10's.

    Hi guys,
    Just bought a pro-mac 10-10, B&C are complete rust so i cant read all the infos on the bar. I wanna know what sprocket size I have to put a new B&C and if possible dont want to remove clutch drum.
    Im betting .325 but not sure. Thanks !

    Btw, she has not run for more than 15-20 years the seller told me. Carb cleaner in the 3 adjustments screws holes, flesh fuel and she run again. It amazes me everytime

    Bar is oregon 1650 1714UQ
    C3614E50-1937-4C41-86D4-D0980A1E0C53.jpeg

    This is the number on my drum 86948
