I just found this thread and here's my Solo. She runs but I need a fuel line replaced before I can use her. Weedeaterman tried to help me and identified the problem. With the angle the line takes from tank to carburetor you can't use aftermarket cut to length.

Thanks. I'll get on that photo. I'm sure I'm just doing something wrong. It is an old US Fish and Wildlife Service saw that was used to cut down one large tree. I bought it a few years ago off Craigs list for $400.I don't recall running into fuel line problems with any of my Solos and I redid a 635 just like your 642.
That said, you have a dandy saw. If you ever part with that, give me a holler.
If the parts are anything like the 654 you are welcome to any parts for the cost of shipping/postage. No recoil, coil but the rest is pretty much there. P+C toast.Picked up a 639 recently and am trying to track down some of the throttle assembly parts anyone have a idea where I could purchase some parts for this saw. Doesn't look like its seen much use so I would like to get it going and see what these Solo's are all about.
