    Hahaha only 1 of us would probably spot it really. I get what ya mean about the wrap bar. Tim has 1 that someone has cut it off.

    I'm still planning on building a full wrap for a 7-10 I do like them for dropping trees. Or limbing odd shaped trees

    Hows that cylinder? He is a lucky man getting that sort of treatment for his saw

    The cylinder is not perfect, it had a lot of that piston on it. I cleaned all of it off with 2 stroke oil and 320 emery cloth. Took some effort but its all of. Theres a little, tiny scratch on it. Im not worried about. Below the exhaust port it has a pit though. Not big but its there. But its below exhaust. I told him it will run well but if its used a lot it would start failing from that pit. Hes not going to use it. He will start it and then place it on a shelf for a long time. This guy is a collector extreme. He uses a few but collects, saws. All of them. He has some very rare saws lots of signs too. Nice person, hard worker, avid collector.

    Ive seen that view, the only adjustment is to replace that jet with a different one. They have a number on them. The larger the number the larger the jet hole, more fuel or vice versa.

    I wonder how long it would last (the 805) it may go for ages but I spose we will never know.

    What other cool saws does he have that has tickled you Vinny or are ya yellow through n through?

    Sounds like a nice place to hang out for a few hours

    imagejpeg_0.jpg this thing runs great. Nearly all his saws look like this. Clean as a whistle! He really takes great care to clean them.

    What's a pm390?

    Those sp105s are a bit rare by the sounds of it.

    Does he cut with old saws? Or has more modern stuff?

    I'm on the hunt for the later type 7-10 decal if any of you fine gentlemen have any ideas? Sugar creek seams to only have the older style. I've asked a chap on Ebay yet to see what he says. I went to a sign place in town yesterday and they said yeah about 100 bucks lol I got out of there pretty fast

    Power Machinery. They branded they're saws as "Canadien"

    The 390 ans after Skil bought them it was the Skil 1690

    139 cc

    Put your 101-10S cover on it. It will open a few eyes.

    Most of the time a jet is sized to the carb to maintain a ratio of mixture, thats why 2bbls or 4bbls on cars.

    Man I really like Mark's chip covers!! They're pretty solid compared to the old ones. Definitely made me happy.

    They are probably surprised when you hand them a regular 10-10 A , and tell them that its only a 54cc saw!
    I've been throwing some cheap 8 pin rim sprockets on my saws lately just too see how much it boggs the saw , mostly the 57ccs and the pro 60 ,HA ! They don't even notice, honestly I didn't get perceivable bog until I put a 24" full comp bar and chain on the pro 60 with the 8 pin rim , but still cuts beautifully only thing is I can't do a hand stand on the saw in the cut ?The pro 10-10 with the 16" bar and an 8 pin is like a damn light saber!
