    The 3 on the left side are ported, all the other ones all lined up all need to be overhauled and then ported, all but one of them are mine,

    They don't come up for sale here that often and when they do they're over priced.

    His echo parts were NLA so it was an answer to his problem.

    Echo`s, well lets say, stay clear of them if possible. Parts are always hard to find and after 5 years most become NLA. I have tossed far too many of them away due to bad ignitions that are NLA, saws for the most part looked hardly used.

    Plenty of them over here, they are the entry level PRO saw and even home owners will buy them. However the homeowners believe Stihl will run forever even if they straight gass them, leave them sit for more than 3 years with mix in them, and generally run them with horribly dull/ damaged chains. Makes it easy for me to find and pick them up cheap. The one 026 I like the best is a heated handle Artic I bought for $5. that came as an all torn down in a box saw. I checked it over real good and never found out why it was taken apart in the first place, all parts were there except the muffler and airfilter cover.
