    You guys have more partners there and in europe than here. Be aware I seen saws look like this and ran after cleaning them up.

    When we got a dirtbike rebuilt we did midnight fly bys through the neighborhood. Of course I plowed all there driveways for free when it snowed. It has its perks.

    It might run, but I gotta be careful about fixing up my parts saws lol

    Picked this up on the way home from work last night. Guy had it buried in his shed. Fresh gas and it ran. Needed a muffler, half of a rear handle, pull cord handle and half the nuts and bolts were loose or jacked up replacements. Piston and cylinder are great. Another 55cc saw.

    Having parts saws laying around are great.

    Picked up two more cubes. Both R517T or so I'm told. An older fella bought the one with the decal in 1979 and has used it since. The other was his spare. It still has an almost new air filter with the flocking still on it. Both run and start great. The one on the right doesn't stay running at idle. Needs a carb adjustment.

    Was a good weekend getting three runners. The one I posted the other day is something else. It starts with no choke, second pull everytime. I thought it was a fluke, but it's done it every day.

    Other saws in that family would include the 5500, 500, pp325 and jred 490/590. Yellow, black, red...

    Iirc the partner 400 fits but not 100 percent sure.

    so different subject here but working on my r440 project. cleaning the crank and noticed the oil hole from the clutch drum bearing goes to the crankcase side of the crank through a very small drilling. So that I guess the fuel oil mix will keep the clutch hub bearing lubed.....unique detail. Only noticed it while cleaning the crank in a parts washer...

    This was a Partner concept. We used to advise against pressure testing without a few layers of tape around the shaft or at least a greased clutch bearing and drum attached.

    i like it shows the smarts of a free thinking group of engineers. It part of what i like working on historic saws seeing all the various styles of solving the same design challenges! Also looking for a 440 cylinder..

    cheers

    P&v testing a p70 is where/when I discovered the auto lube feature.
    That was my first partner and the saw that originally brought me to this site looking for info.

    I think I only had a half dozen saws at that point, boy did that change quick, lol...

    Pulled the R30 off of the shelf today and went to put a carb kit on it. I really like this big old girl, but every time I work on it I get frustrated.. LOL
    First off, it doesn't have a Tillotson on it like the IPL and Acres both say. Walboro SDC 30 instead... Match up the diaghphrams with what came out... Fires first pull, then promptly proceeds to flood itself so bad it pours liquid fuel out the exhaust... Swap the pump side diaphragm, now it runs but leans out as it warms up. Sure enough, Intake block is cracked... Again, part in the IPL looks nothing like whats on the saw... Thankfully searching the part number found me a new one.

    Out of curosity, being the IPL, and the ones for the later models all say I should be dealing with a Tillotson, I wonder just what else is different on this saw? I know it is rather early production and predates the 10-27-71 service bulletin.
