    Here is the one cover. The air cleaner one is in the box still.

    The cylinder is almost perfect. A little more sanding 20191117_144543.jpg 20191117_150709.jpg

    I def think its an MS880. Maybe they put an older head on it. I dont see why all of the parts say ms880. Can anyone decode the serial? 20191117_152159.jpg IMG_20191117_153627_01.jpg

    M.D. 0509 on the tank is May 2009 so a few months before the muffler/cylinder/case update which was September.

    So it really makes no difference. Tag could say either. There was no difference between the 088 and early ms880.

    Thats cool. I ordered a piston, and a full seal kit, carb rebuild kit. Ill have to try to untwist the 36" bar. I was trying it out of the 051 i have and it does not cut straight. Ill deal with that until the parts show up for the rebuild

    Looks great Mike. Makes me wish I would’ve had mine powdered while it was split.

    Thanks

    When doing your build take time and have fun doing it
    1124 series are very easy to work on

    Considering that that’s a $2000 saw new and rare as hens teeth, I’d snatch it up in a second and then figure out how to fix it.
