    They had a red Craftsman 3.7 there to. But it was $60 and I couldn't get'r to fire. Good compression though.
    Maybe I should go back?

    Picked up these four saws today on a local auction. The pictures are after a bath as they were all grease and dust. The 036 has good compression but needs a fuel line. The 034 AV started on the third pull and runs great, has an odd bar and a carbide chain on it. The MS191T started after some gas, a little swearing, and about 50 pulls, runs great now however. The 011AVT started and seems to run fine, just needs a oil line. Gave $225 for all four, not a steal but a good bargain I think. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    019t, you may not like it.

    Anything past spark plug or air filter requires the engine come out of the housing.

    Oh I’m not keeping it trust me. I was thrilled I got it running and tuned good. I’m going to make a few test cuts with it and put it for sale. I have a 201TCM I hardly use anyway.

    The powerhead is just dirty. I don’t put much if any stock in what the bar is like.
    Here in mesquite firewood country a bar’s life span is 10-15 cords of wood. If a guy runs chains too long I’ve seen bars smoked in 2-3 cords of work.
    It’s pretty clean under the dust and oil. I look at percentage paint left on the front of crankcase and the bottom.
    AV is tight still. A 361 with 100 cords on it has pretty loose AV.

    Here it is next to a huztl 360 that I’ve put 2 tanks through breaking it In and working the bugs out of for the guy who built it. Guy (my brother) told me to run 10 tanks and tell him what it needs to be good to go. Notice the bar on it is rough because I grabbed an old one off my bench. I didn’t want to put wear on his new bar and chain. I doubt I’ll make 10 tanks since it’s a lot slower than the big saws I usually run but he did a good job building it and so far it just needs a stihl Oiler and maybe a softer spring on the carb, could use an extra 6” of pull rope.

    Is mesquite really hard or abrasive?

    I think a lot of it has sand from the fields blown into it. I’m not sure if it’s the natural properties that make it so hard on stuff or that. Even cutting live trees a brand new Oregon or stihl chain won’t cut a cord of 2’ wood. I say that, it will but you won’t have fun sharpening it.
    I was cutting a big tree the other day that was half dead (really big for a mesquite, it made 1.5 cords, 1/3 is average) it was about 19” diameter on 2 long trunks. I was having to hold the 360 and 361 back so it wouldn’t stop the chain. Stihl semi chisel chain. I got tired of it and the wife came to help load and brought my 288 and with a 8 pin rim and 18” bar, full chisel. You couldn’t lean on the 288 without it stoping, but it ate through really fast. Crazy to think a 288 is the right tool for 19” trees. Usually run the 440’s but I wasn’t sure if they were ready to roll and knew the 288 was and wife can’t tell.

    My criteria for saws is 70CC and up. But for the price I would keep that one. I like those square Yellow saws.

    Picked up these two parts saws for $10.00 today. Hope to make one out of the 2 and fix another that has oiler issues.

    $100 for both. They both have good compression, the PM appears complete, the XP-1100 is missing the starter.

    Here’s the first saw purchase of 2019. Scored this nice red lever 026 at a yard sell today... the ol’ 028 might be a little jealous...
