They are spunky saws higher compression than most out of the box. Olympyc= Efco I have a 152 and a 156.Efco both with compression release, nice fun throaty saws. Had a Olympyc 264 and this saw could of used a compression release. The saw was stock and it felt like timing was advanced a little to far but it did run and cut like a ported saw. Powerful saws out of the box. It would pull the starter handle right out of your hand if you did not pull it with authority. I pulled the flywheel to see if the key had sheered a little, but not the case. I would think the 284 would be the same.
Good luck with the sale

These saws are mid 80's vintage, and are quite strong. They are nice and torquey, and dont even seem to slow down when burying a 24" bar. They aren't screamers like a Dolmar 7900 or Husqvarna XP. I'd place them on par with any piston ported 5-cube from the 80s.

Buy this saw and likely have the coolest saw in the woods when you take it out cutting!

I also just freshened up this extremely nice 264F. It would make an excellent 61cc companion for this 81cc brute! I would make someone a nice package deal if they were interested!

If those saws are still for sale, I know it’s been over two years, I would be interested. I collect vintage Olympyk saws and I have both a 284F and a 264 in my inventory. However, having a second of each means keeping them running for a much longer time!

I have a 480 Super I'm looking to get rid of, the covers are a little different but the majority of the saw is the same I believe, if your just looking for parts

I will have to send you a PM. I’m just bringing home the 284 and I have to check out all the issues and what I will need. It may not be save-able unless I case swap.

Okay we'll just shoot me a message I'm probably about 85 to 90% sure the cases on the 284 f and the 480 are going to be the same I was looking at a 284 f earlier and the handles and covers and everything bottled up the exact same do you know the other 2010 to 20% of uncertainty is just I've never had one apart to look at the top ends or the crank so that's my uncertainty

Since you collect these, maybe you could answer a question for me. I have a 284F and the oiler pump for the chain is not working properly. Do you know how to remove the pump and where to buy a replacement?
