There can only be one prom queen... You get a bar yet?
Still hunting for a deal. I have a couple of leads.

Send me the tracking number in email when you get a chance, please.
I stopped by an independent shop looking for a bar for the Husky 261.99 that atvguns put on eBay for Stumpy, but they couldn't come up with one. However as I was looking at the used bars what did I spy leaning against the wall? Yep, a large mount 36" Stihl Bar, used, but not abused.............to bad I don't have a saw that will fit it.................:wink2:

I see it's my turn, now. Sorry so slow, but I spent the last 24 hours on a romantic getaway with the wife - I hope you understand! :msp_sneaky::heart::rock:

I looked though many pages here, but didn't find any info on the homelite 925 and the 10-10A - any info out there that might make my decision easier?
Thanks!

Here are our earlier posts about the saws, with pics. The McCulloch 10-10A is a 54cc piston ported saw. This one has an excellent engine. Good 16" hardnose bar. Rebuilt carb. New loop of Oregon 73 3/8" chisel chain. Some paint worn/knocked off. Small thumbnail sized bit broken off of the lower leading edge of the clutch cover (doesn't affect anything). Starts, idles, revs, and cuts great. A great old "vintage" firewood saw. Best with a 16-24" bar, but will run a 28" if you're not heavy handed. No AV. Takes the Oregon D276, Oregon D176, and Windsor TMX bars. THe TMX and D176 bars are still in production. Needs nothing, and is ready to run.

The Homelite SXL-925 is an 82cc reed valve beast of an old "vintage" saw. Will run a 36" bar, but is best with a 20-30" bar. Chris is including a 20" sprocket tip bar with it. Takes the Oregon D096/D196 and Windsor UXL/TXL bars that are still in production. No AV Has a few minor things to fix that he has described in his posting:









I didn't get the "Mac in the box" gas cap squared away yet. Damn valve in it is melted, and it resisted getting the aweful red paint stripped off. I'll send the saw out with a good cap from one of my other saws. The glare on the 'bottom' pic makes it look like there's corrosion. It's only bare mag where the paint has worn off.


Wish I had some cash to give over to Mr. Stumpy, times are tough so this is going to have to do.







I want everyone to understand the 925 does run, but will need a litte bit of work, the handlebar holes are stripped and will need helicoil/tapped, the saw will come dressed with a nice Homelite 20inch sprocket tip bar.

I'm just glad to have the opportunity to help someone out. I can't even begin to explain all of the help I have received in my life just because someone wanted to, it's time to pay a little of that forward.

Stumpy I hope that we can help you get your place back together and better than ever man. You were a straight up guy with me in our dealings, and as far as I'm concerned you and your family deserve everything good coming your way.


Chris
