That's indeed the way to do it. It looks complicated and a lot of work but actually it isn't really. Mine had a ton of oily sawdust in it so the engine did not come out easily. I also had to take out the idle screw otherwise the engine would not slide out. You also have to remove the coil and the flywheel to get the carb out. I have respect for the guy who engineered this saw...
I think you got your moneys worth!My Mac110 will be 30 years old in a couple of months. It has never had the carb rebuilt, but it starts and runs like the day it was new. Engineering exists to serve many purposes. That design made McCulloch a lot of money, and put a saw in peoples hands for an easy to reach price. I paid $69.99 brand new.
I think you did all right for $25.00. If you need a plastic cover for your intake, to hold in your air filter, I have a few spare covers here, that I salvaged from a few saws I parted out for myself. let me know if you need one, and I also can spare an Air Filter as well if you need one. Bruce.Last night I picked up a Mini Mac 35 and a Mac 110 from an add on craigslist. $25 for the pair.
They had been sitting for years with all the fluids drained. I think I'll have to tear apart the carbs to get them working. They start if I dump some fuel directly into the carb. The 110 is also missing the piece of plastic that covers the intake.
Still seems like a good way to spend $25
hoss.In order of motor size I have a mac125 (123cc), model 73 (120cc gear drive), pm1000 (100cc), super44A (87cc), 1-53 (80cc), 250 (80cc), G-70 (72cc), pm610 (60cc) and an early 10-10A (50+cc). All of them get used in rotation then cleaned and displayed until the next go-round. The 73 is a beast with a long bar once you dig the spikes in and push. The 125 is a legend and deserves it. The pm 1000 cuts about like a 660 with a 32" bar on it (maybe a little more guts). the super 44A is heavy but surprisingly quick. The 1-53 and 250 cut about the same and share a bar. The 10-10 is one of the strongest saws in this size segment that I have ever used. Oh yeah..... I almost forgot about the little mini mac 6 top handle.
I like my Mini Macs. Very handy little saws. I use mine every day in the Bush, for the liming work, and cut stuff up to 6", then I get one of my bigger saws. I have a marking stick, I use for marking to desired lengths. I just touch the chain on the tree, enough to place a mark, about a 1/4" in depth. It takes the guess work out of cutting. Before I used the saw to do this job, I used a hatchet, to chop a mark, where I wanted to cut. It was a tough time some times to see the mark you left with the hatchet.My Mac110 will be 30 years old in a couple of months.

Nice picture of your Family's Men Mark. Nice to see 4 Generations like this. It's some what an rarity, to see this. In a few years, you'll have another McCulloch Operator there, to help. Bruce.
L-R 1-85, 740, SP125C, SP125C, this was taken before I got the 550
My favorite twins
Oops, My dad (Art), me (Mark), my son (Joshua), my grandson (Grady) Only Grady has not run McCulloch saws...yet.
That 740 Mark is one very impresive saw. How many cc'c roughly would it have? Is it direct drive, or gear driven? Bruce.
1-10, Nice runner but equipped with McCulloch .354 chain
McCulloch 300, the one that got me started again
McCulloch 450, 87cc
McCulloch 550, 99cc and a strong runner
McCulloch 740, I think I finally have this one starting and running right
