Jethro is here but he has been off the radar for a bit.

Big life changes at the moment im no longer with my wife n kid and am crashing at mates or with the new lady lol.

Glad your wife is home Mark.

My saws are all stashed at a mates safe n sound. Just kinda getting my feet grounded at the moment but I'm a very happy man now and hungry for life :)
Sounds like your head is plumb and level.
Just keep looking forward and never behind.
I wish you the best Jethro.

Hey fellas I have a couple of good running mcculloch titan saws, unfortunately the tanks leak gas badly. Is this common on these saws? It looks like they have a seam in the middle of the tank. Are they fused together or is there a gasket between the two sides. TIA

About a week ago I tried my hand at porting the 1-43, based off of the article provided by @matt_lamb_160 but I didn't get around to posting pictures until tonight as I've been kinda busy. The past two nights I've been up till midnight or later getting saws and gear ready for work the next day so the Mac has taken the back burner pending spare time and parts arriving.

Good job.

You might like this article too. Gives another option for additional ports (boost ports rather than the third port), pretty hard to drill with a fixed head, but still interesting.

Why would this not work?
There is no grove for the seal to fit into. It's a straight shaft and straight housing.
It's .045 less in width is the only difference.
My measurements for Mac seal # 83859

Rather a tough week for us, Mrs. Heimann was admitted to the hospital on Monday with stomach pain, turned out to be pancreatitis. While struggling through that she's had heart rhythm problems, fluid building up around her heart and lungs, and breathing issues... Things seem to be on the mend now but she won't be coming home until Sunday or Monday.

I'll do my best to check in from time to time and help out if I can. Looks like you've been doing a good job without me.

This has come up on another site and via private mail here. Some info on saws sold down under.

Hi Guys,

Just thought I would share this with everyone. I got this saw last week. It's a McCulloch Pro Mac 6800 or as know here in Australia the Bumble Bee. Was made for McCulloch by Sachs Dolmar Germany. Nice saw and it runs nice to.

Haven't had much time yet to go through it or even give it a clean but I will shortly. Anyway have a look and let me know your thoughts.

Cheers
Justin

I've never seen one before Justin.
What CC? I can't find any info on it.

Interesting saw Justin, never seen one like that either, but looks solid!

I also got a new arrival last week :D

Its got a smaller muffler than the DE80, and I noticed that the previous owner (or someone) inserted two thin rectangular metal plates behind the cracked outer one.
I found an IPL online, which shows only two plates bolted to the muffler body: a sort of raised outer one, and only one below (same shape). Is this a common "fix", guess the originals got cracked and broken? What do you guys think?
