Yes I feel we have made a ton of progress thomas....you've finally come to terms with your sexuality and made a new friend along the way...all in all I'd say a fairly successful thread.

I thought those were private conversations? Next you're going to tell me you're not really a trained therapist and those pics you sent me, with you and the dog and the 5 gallon bucket, weren't supposed to be for the general public?

You should really examine your priorities in life.

If this dude has to get a new foot, maybe we can do a package deal and get Randy some real legs.

Just a thought...:msp_confused:

Back on topic, usually if a saw is smoking really bad, and won't idle, it is because the saw is getting too much gas. Running rich. If you can't clean it up by leaning it out, the metering needle is probably stuck open.

Maybe you put the bar oil in the wrong hole. When the holes are close together it can be confusing and its not uncommon to put your oil in the wrong one. I would probably do a sniff test, take a good wiff of each hole and see which one smells gassy. Don't put your oil in the gassy hole.

The smoke may be from the fact the saw had been stored. The original owner may have thought ahead and gave it a few shots of oil in the cylinder. If you've checked for a bar oil leak and ruled out Ambull's suggestion run it for a few minutes and see if it clears up.

The big old saw is not a D-30, more like 1-40.

Smoking Mac's are normally due to bar oil in the crank case. Common on auto oiler versions when the pulse pump gasket leaks a little, also common on older saws when operating the manual oiler as there may be a passage from the oil tank to the crank case (Lubri-Mac on the real old models, leaking gaskets on "newer" saws that have an automatic oiler option even when it isn't used).
