    OK, mine is a 35. I had not seen it in so long. I think this maybe my next victim to get running. Not really interested in running it, but just too have it running and keep it in running shape. It is just a odd saw that most people have never seen. Maybe run it and make a cut with it here and there. The chain on it is much bigger than a .404, it must be a 1/2 inch.

    Love those bars... I know looks shouldn't matter, but it sure makes it sometimes! I keep my eye on ebay for roller nose bars, those always look sick on an old muscle saw.

    That's why I could never run a Timberbear LOL I know it sounds stupid, but those just look like, I dunno, an '84 Chrysler version of a saw. :laugh:

    Nice saw Kevin that thing is real clean. And nice one Poge you let go of a dam fine saw there for a fellow enthusiast

    I dragged home a saw today I can't take pictures so here is the listing pics
    Screenshot_20200215-211022_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200215-211043_Samsung Internet.jpg

    It's very nice just a bit of "ute" rash and still has its read and screen in the muffler. bummer of a half wrap and soft sad miserable AV mounts.

    Seems to have great compression and runs nice. It's that solid somehow perfectly sealed feeling as you try and turn it over then give up and push the valve in.

    Very happy. It cost me alot but it is nice

    Just got a answer from piston manufacture and long skirt is intake side but confused why it was made that way
    what benefits would there be having a short skirt on the exhaust side, I had a old Yamaha snowmobile with a
    dealer race kit option installed on it (GYT kit) the intake skirt was shorter (not much) allowed a bit more fuel in I guess, anyways
    glad I got a answer would have installed it backwards. One more thing I know guys are always trying to find paint to withstand gas and oil did a test on my paint I'm using on my Pro Mac 60
    I used a rustoleum yellow and a black paint on the tank then a clearcoat. poured some mix on my test piece clearcoat disappeared and black didn't hold up but my 1.99 can of yellow rustoleum still looks good. I need to find a good gas resistant clearcoat or the same rustoleum black on my tank.

    Ive got the tank bottom. It will need a couple bits but the tank bottom is good, the dsp lever is there, its missing the tank bushing, and the choke button is chipped no trigger, rear screws are missing. Ive not split it. The inside of the tank is clean, no holes. If youre interested just pm me. And you are under zero obligation to buy it. If its not what youre interested in then no harm no foul. 20200215_112155.jpg 20200215_112218.jpg 20200215_112231.jpg 20200215_112247.jpg 20200215_112259.jpg

    Yes shorter intake skirt should effect that some exhaust side no ideal why it would be shorter bottom skirt maybe someone will know but at least I can move on now

    Oh yes IMO it is,especially lately.My very clean 850 (about 90% original paint,only 1 lowest fin missing from muffler cover & 176 PSI) cost $350 shipped from Roseburg OR to me in summer 2015.I realize Feebay isn't a real reliable gauge of prices,it can be all over the map for stuff.But its not unusual for comparable ones have been $500+ the past year or so.I've seen ones that didn't even run/somewhat beat go for that much,just incredible.

    You got a great deal.
