    Mine has the black cap on it , but wasn’t sure it was right. Mike acres site sais it runs 12:1 so I assumed the yellow cap to be correct ?

    Yes
    Paul was thinking of handle wrap on my 600's . Since one had paracord , the other a split hose . Has to be better than that .

    If you are looking for a fairly rugged wrap the tennis racket wrap is pretty good as well

    Well I'm sure it will much better than Paracord or hose.

    Walter's idea is a good option too. I have used the tennis wrap on a couple of non-saw related things and it's good stuff.

    Great looking Farmsaws guys. I've never ran one but I'm guessing they're similar to a 41. Has anyone that you know ever hotrodded one?

    If you get to the point where you get enough of a pile of saws, they can't tell if you added another one to the collection. The trick is getting to that point!

    I hot rodded this one a little bit. I did a little bit to the upper transfers and exhaust. Also was able to delete the gasket. It's pretty nasty, and only has 2 tanks thru it. Compression was at 175 when I handed it over to my dad.

    I tested it with a 24, and it did very well. It will probably pull a 28, but why push it.
