    I get the same joy when I bring one back to life. Nothing like the first pop and you know it will run but you don't have any idea what else needs done. Enjoy the project and report back to us

    Heading to the Upstate NY GTG this weekend. Taking one Canadian and two American built hot rods. Homelite XL-76, Poulan 5200 and a McCulloch CP125.

    All three pretty special units.

    Have fun, but not too much, you still have to drive home. Just make sure what ever you drive that you have extra room for bring backs.

    Will do if I remember. The weather forecast changes drastically every 4 hours or so. It looks wet.

    I go down Saturday, GTG on Sunday, stay over and head home Monday. Roughly an 8 hour drive each way.

    Lots of fun. It really good to meet people on here face to face.

    If any of you have a chance to get to one, you should make the effort.

    I've made one every year since 2013,

    I just wish they were a bit closer to home.

    I took this poulan countervibe stuff in trade today to help a local get his parts he needed. Traded 380 3750 p+c and 22" badboy bar and new chain and a crankcase for his 3450.

    The poulan 4000 has a 3400 rear handle on it do to the 4000 handle in pic was cracked and other half broken. The 4000 recoil pulley and recoil still good but he said the flywheel had a issue. So replaced with a 3400 flywheel and recoil cover.

    Craftsman 3.7 was told runs but has a break you can see in rear handle at back L. 3400 just a part saw with clean looking piston.

    Will sell or trade off to folks too.
