    You are very welcome. I am sure I speak for Ron when I say We both are glad that you enjoy them.

    By the way, Ron covered in sawdust and for once I was not the one to do it.

    I decided to look into the McCulloch 3516 I have sitting here with a busted primer bulb. After I took the carb off I looked in & the piston doesn't have any rings!? It has a few minor marks, but no rings.

    Opened up the bonus 10-10s I got last month and just like the majority of Mccullochs I get the saw runs very well.
    Replaced the broken green oiler button with my last one (black).
    I didn't rebuild the carburetor or anything else on this saw and shes in good shape! I made about a dozen cuts in some hard wood with it and now she'll be sitting for at least a week while I'm working, which is usually a good thing gives the seals and carb time to soak up some fresh oils .
    It does look like someone sealed the tank with some clear whatever? So maybe I'll redo that with a new gasket.

    Ya know I dont think you can run 110ac (drill)off that thing considering it looks to have a delco or ford type alternator on it just like you cant power AC off your car without the converter.

    The problem is that on the one carb I've torn apart, the diaphragm was disintegrated and mia. I'll tear into the other two carbs in the next day or so and get back to you.

    Here’s what the carbs had in ‘em. With the first pic, there was another gaskety-like circular piece, but I chucked it months ago so I don’t remember if it was a donut or an English muffin looking piece.

    I almost forgot, I got these two Macs for $10 off of a friend. One supposedly works, and I think that it is the 1-40 as it had a little mix in the tank and ran with gas down the carb. The best part is the recoil on the 1-40 works perfectly after soaking it in Liquid Wrench! It went from working at a speed that was close to the speed of glaciers from the last Ice Age to actually retracting as fast as a new saw’s recoil! (Well, almost. But you get the picture.) 12D187B6-74F6-4CA4-888F-53A58338D0EC.jpeg 61F2624F-F9A3-42E0-AE08-7EA4C630D436.jpeg 6D08AB33-EB40-48CF-91B3-EBA56DFDB02B.jpeg 9CD31618-23A0-4E09-9750-0ABAAF58D2F0.jpeg BA569571-A052-4A3C-A61E-68E5C352BE36.jpeg

    Finally got the 850 dialed in. New duckbill and gasket on the cap and fresh carb kit. Oh and the obligatory “Buckin” NOS McCulloch bar. 410AAD63-814E-43AA-A6CE-304BB854852D.jpeg
