What should I do about this? Is there some ancient JB weld sorcery that can be applied here?
A combination of J-B Weld and Helicoil inserts should handle your woes quite effectively. I would stick to SAE hardware of the correct thread size to maintain conformity. I had similar issues with my SP81 and went with black hex head cap screws. I liked the look of the black hardware on the yellow. Subtle, but still kinda cool.

Yes, its some kind of oak , but there's several species of it common to the South, maybe water oak ? Theres a stem/trunk behind me thats as tall as my jeep on its side.

Good firewood anyway.

Was nice dealing with the radiata in the weekend it cuts nice splits nice its easy on ya back easy on everything and is dry in a year with a decent heat if its old n sappy

I swung by a buddy’s to get a 2100 and ended up coming home with this as well! It has a 20 inch bar (not shown) and fired up and ran with gas down the carb, but it needs a new tank gasket and the old gas needs to be drained. It’s a bullfrog, so I’m hoping it’ll run fine without my having to touch it. I thought this was 70cc but Acres says the 5-10 (non-DSP) is 54cc, am I misremembering the displacement?

I know I feel a helluva lot better now.Originally I thought the 5-10 was 70cc as well,then I looked on Acres' site & saw it listed as 54cc & was a little bummed.
I had the saw running right after I got it back in Oct.It wasn't running right,so I pulled the carb for a rebuild & just got it back on last week.The switch is grounding out,so I disconnected the switch wire from the coil,put the plug back in (It had great spark after disconnecting the wire) & I can't get the saw to fire at all.I tried a couple different plugs.The compression feels weak when the DSP is working,but if I try to pull it over without the DSP it's very hard to pull over.Any ideas?
