    Picked this one up a couple weeks ago. Cleaned it up real good, had to jb weld the tank window back in, cleaned the oil pump and put on a new set of dogs.

    Still would like to find a stock air filter set up and a chain break, but it runs really good as is.

    Nice saw Nate.

    Those Pioneer gas caps have a habit of swelling and getting stuck. They are getting hard to find. Don't leave them screwed down when you have it in storage or leave it with gas in for too long. Something in the gas makes them swell. Maybe the ethanol.

    Throw them in the freezer for a week. Some guys have good luck shrinking them that way.

    I think Shawn said something about that too, I'll give it a try, I won't be cutting for a while anyway.

    I recently had a Pioneer Farmsaw with a very hard to tighten/loosen gas cap myself.

    I used the trick of submerging it in non-ethanol straight gas for a week.

    I barely touched up one thread on the cap that was too tight with a triangular file, now it screws on and off smooth as new.

    Good info Pete. I had passed that along when you originally posted it to a local P60 collector and he said it worked well. I could not find your original post. CRAFT is a beotch.

    I'm posting this in a few place s to try and get results...

    I'm curious to what people in here have for the model 73 serial number for those who own one. According to bulletins I know they made over 55000 model 73 saws but I have yet to see one with a serial number over 10,000. Does anyone in here own a Model 73 that's over serial number 10000? I've seen a 73A in the 11,000 range but that's a different saw all together that I'm not looking into.

    Also starting around 10347 they started putting the snorkel air filter system on the saws and you don't see hardly any of those either. I have one serial number 49 50 that has the snorkel air filter system on it obviously it's an add-on but I've only seen a few others. Im researching certain features of this saw and trying to see what all is out there. You can tell from certain parts and pieces the age of it. I have one with no tag and a blank pad but the 6 hole clutch drum on it tells me its prior to serial number 4227. After this serial number they went to a stronger two hole drum.

    So these changes tell a lot about the saw. If anyone can share their serial number id appreciate it.It would also be interesting to see what the lowest serial number around is. There is a lot of documentation by McCulloch on the model 73 saw. I'm also checking into the Model 77 but so far there isn't much around on that model. Anyway I'd appreciate anything anyone can share.

    Thanks,
    Nick

    My entry - Jonsered Raket XF - 6.71 cubes. Found at a local swap meet. Needs a recoil/starter assembly; anyone got one?

    Have a few Stihl big cube saws, too.
