    The Dolmar/Makitas are not my specialty but here's what I know. The stock carb will work along with the 7910 piston and cylinder. You can also modify it for more fuel. There is another carb that can be swapped in and I believe it's the Walbro Rwj-4. The 6421 is a really smooth and strong feeling saw. You should be happy with it as is! If you ever feel a need for a 80cc saw you can upgrade it and have a beast! Do a search for lithe upgrade as there are a lot of those going on right now!

    I really doubt thats the original bar that came with that saw. Unless he took it off. Beat the hell out of the powerhead and put the bar back on. But anyway that dosent matter at all. I own one and its a VERY nice saw. Extremely smooth running and powerful. Easy to work on and alot of fun. You should be able to,clean that saw up real pretty like too. Its a shame to see such abuse to a dolkita. And yes that saw is compatiable with a 79cc upgraid. You can also install a upgraided filter kit thats available. With the filter you have on it now I would check for dust getting in. They typically let a little in with that design. Just put a little grease lithium based grease around the filter where it seals by the intake and your good. It will seal real nice then with the grease to fill in the cracks. Other than that the saw is pretty flawless. Your going to love it.heres a pic of my 7900 at work[​IMG][​IMG]

    DANG, you DO suck. The case costs that much! And the 026 looks to be in great condition! It's weird she (maybe) knew enough to want to keep the 440 Magnum. Wonder why. It's not likely SHE will be using it.

    What is a big tag sale?

    Oh yeah, she wanted to keep the 440 because it’s newer to have a chainsaw on her property in case the lawn guy should need to use it. She will certainly NOT be using it!

    And a tag sale is a garage sale, a yard sale. Not like she was selling a big tag. I suppose this one could be an estate sale, being her deceased husbands stuff mostly.

    I bought a boatload of stuff at a huge estate sale that a widow held on her deceased husband's stuff. It was unreal. The guy was a hoarder. Unbelievable amount of tools and survival stuff. I ended up with a couple truckloads of stuff, lol. Tools, shelves, it was a huge sale. Took 3 days.

    Well this is for the Homelite guys!
    I went to pickup 2 McCulloch chainsaws from a guy, Super 44A and a 10-10 automatic but when I arrived all he had was the Super, the kids said not to sell grandpa's saw.
    He felt bad so he threw in these 2 saws for free! Other than the clutch cover missing on one saw the appear complete.
    1) McCulloch Super 44A
    2) Homelite 330's
    Grand total = $50[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That sure is a pretty Super EZ bringing up the rear. I might have something of interest to trade for it, maybe a couple somethings?

    I stopped in an old Stihl dealer last year and asked if he had any old Homelites. He had a wall full of them, all for $10 each. I got a Blue EZ, a 450, and an XL925. Then he dug up a Super 1050 with a full wrap handle bar, for $40. I need to stop in and get a few more the next time I'm in WV. Unfortunately, after my Dad passed away, my mom called and said she was having a yard sale and selling all of Dad's yard equipment and old tools, with one days notice, the day I was going on vacation. I got all of his big saws and told her to just sell the rest. We used Super EZ's for our climbing saws and had a pile of them. A couple years ago I had a purge and got down to 12 saws, I'm over 40 again. Going to an auction Thursday to try for an old White Poulan with a 48" bar.

    Those axes are pretty sweet! You'll definitely have to do a video of the super.

    I pulled the plug and it had spark. Shot of mix down the plug hole and it fired on the third pull. I’d like to find an IPL so I don’t take apart stuff I don’t need to.

    I think I might have got a score on Friday! I caught up with my father's cousin who is now 80 and used to process firewood for a job. I knew he had an 084 and after a few discussions we worked out a deal where I supply him with 4 cord of wood in exchange for the saw, it runs really well but doesn't oil. Good compression and the muffler is complete and intact, 30 inch bar and nearly new semi chain:

    Couple ways of looking at that. He's a relative with a few years on him so I would give him the wood anyway, so you got the saw for free. Or, I get $200 a cord so it cost $800. I wouldn't look at it as a business deal. I see it as your Dad's cousin gave you a family heirloom. And to say thanks, you are going to keep him in firewood for a while. You did good.

    Mark, less that 1 post per year! You need to step it up a bit, mate.
