I should have been doing what you were doing.
Hey now, thats a difficult cut! Shoulder height bore cut isn't easy ! I thought you did great.
Fox " I climb things to poop on them."
Brian and Ron thanks guys. Great pictures and video.
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.
Hahaha I remember a photo of him getting buried in chips from you on a 125.
Certainly do love your photos and stories it keeps this place alive with Mac's cutting wood
Looked like another great day of cutting, fellas. Thanks for sharing.
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.
I'm amazed at the size of that coil!
Does anyone know where can I get carb kits for 2 model 47s and a model 73 Mac?
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.
Woodslasher - post some photos of the diaphragms you need, I may have one in the attic.
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.)
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.
Dayuuuum!!! Very nice! Buckin' would approve!
