The progress so far and mock up of what this skilsaw 1631 will look like.

Other than the muffler, the old 270 is back together and ready for mayhem. I tried to leave as much untouched as possible, like the area under the clutch cover. I found someone in Canada who is going to sell me a NIB muffler as soon as he can get to his long term storage, which may be a few months but I'm patient. The clutch cover looks different because many years ago my grandfather cut a section out of the back as an outlet for sawdust, because it cut so aggressively (cutting with the grain?) it would clog
Nice.ihave a 175 and 270 .need.a muffler and.carb kit for my 270.not bad saws other than that. bit heavy but has.a bit of power.use to be alot of them around here yrs. ago.the pulp cutters its all the used.although a bit heavyier then the old pioneers 600 -650 they found they seemed to have better torque.some of them found them (pioneers) little under powered.
Nice. I wish my Fairbanks Morse recoil had that cool logo on it!PM 19A Pacemaker, crankcase is back together, new bearings, seals, gaskets fuel and oil lines. Still looking for a clutch that fits on the keyed shaft. Painted the top cover tank, it was pretty rough so I gave it a coat of primer and paint then sanded it a bit to scuff it up. I wanted to keep the other parts as they were. The last photo is from Acres site. View attachment 823188 View attachment 823193 View attachment 823194
All the parts are much the same except it has a smaller piston than the 270.and muffler is different it bigger.and carb has a slightly different#.even though the 270 little bigger in cc's it seemed more powerful.i rebuilt alot of those old cdn'syrs ago.a few 177,188.and few skil saws.when cdn company was bought out by skil in the usa .they just took the equipment .the saw parts was left behind and buiried up in 2 large holes the size of a football statium .dont.think the did not honoured any of the warrenties.what a wast.was told that by the guy in quebec.he has the chainsaw museum.i think he has all of the canadiens built.
