Saws still keep piling up here, most I am not buying, they just appear...LOL
5 more in the last 3 months, two of those I have running fine now, two are waiting on parts and one I have yet to look at.
CUZ JERRY...YOU'RE THE SUPER MECH!!
IM CONVINCED...YOU GUYS THAT ARE SO MECHANICALLY BLESSED ARE NATURALS! MY FATHER IS ONE OF THEM. HE SAVED HIS OUTFIT FROM BEING CAPTURED IN THE ARDENNES FOREST DURING WW11, WHEN HE GOT A BROKEN DOWN SHERMAN TANK RUNNING. THEY ALL JUMPED ON THE TANK AND MADE IT BACK TO THE ALLIES LINE.

The carb has been a bit tedious but I won after several teardowns and adjustments. I have two of these 015`s here now, one is the old top handle version, the other an AV model. Both have the same HDC carbs with identical problems. Figured it all out and now the saw work just fine.
JOE AT WORK HAS A REALLY NICE O15 AND IT APPEARS TO MAYBE HAVING SAME PROBLEM WITH THE CARB AS YOU DISCRIBE.

I hear this very often about the 015 and its HDC carb, only got two of them a short while ago, both had the same problems . Had a short break from regular job and work so I looked into it and figured out how to fix them, they both work normal again.

Yep about to get to the relocation program......nice in here and the koffee's hot....not any of those things out there!!
Zactly, procrastinating myself, no need to go anywhere til mid afternoon so relocation is not top on my list, will get done when I build up enough internal fortitude.

Relocation program completed........boy, between a near ruined right shoulder and sore, gimpy left hand and a 3/4 ton 5 spd standard trans snow removal was a bit painful........more so than usual anyway......glad only have 5 driveways to do and three of them are mine......the other two are the old fella's shop and house.....both are hard....the house because there is no place to go once you get down in there and no place to put snow. The shop is pretty much the same except for all sorts of chit in the way......old fella's not forward thinking when it comes to snow removal....just leaves boats, tractors, trucks etc where ever they are when he get done using them.....not helpful....but I do the best I can.

I gave up plowing for others , too much hassle for too little return on my time and machines. Many were like the old fella, vehicles, boats , camper trailers etc. left just anywhere they parked them last time used cut down on spots one could push /relocate snow, sure slows up the relocation .

Oh man, that brings back memories, learned to never loan a plow truck even to a good friend, that cost me more than $500. out of pocket and 9 hours labor to repair the damage...LOL

Customers here would wait until the firewood was froze to the ground and covered deep in snow to call in desperate need of firewood delivery, make the call and expect it delivered within a few hours...meh...!
