Picked up a 359 from the original owner, who stated it wouldn’t run. Bar/chain were original, no more than 10 tanks of fuel ran though it since he bought it. Used where he hunted to trim limbs in shooting lanes, but has sat up last couple years. Compression is great, put fresh fuel in it in his driveway and it fired up and ran but wouldn’t idle. I handed him the $35 he was asking and tossed it in the truck. One Zama carb later, she’s purring...... View attachment 713043
Suckiest so far

I picked this 026 up last week. Guy said it was hard to pull and had old gas in it. I offered $100 bucks and he took it. Drained the old gas out and it started up after about 10 pulls. Ran a tank through it Saturday cleaning fence rows. Now it will sit and idle all day and starts right up. I dont think this saw has had very much use!

Found a project Johnsered 630 on Facebook and the guy also had this 268, I got both for $200. The 268 would start but I couldn’t keep it running. Dinked around and found all the 268 needed was a tank vent and air filter studs. It came with a cheap Chinese carb so I bought the original Tiltson Carb. I have yet to buy the air filter studs so the saw isn’t complete yet but should be soon. From what I can tell the saw has very little use and for only being $142 bucks in, I think I scored:rock: 39F358A5-2EA3-4B14-8A0E-06C6CA244766.jpeg 13423634-1135-4593-A771-DDCA9E2900B1.jpeg

Does this qualify? Found a shop that had a dead saw "pile" or should I say piles. Nastiest saws ive picked up in a while. Filthy.
The 250A just needs a tank vent and maybe a carb kit. Has 150 psi. $15 bucks.
700 is just parts. Only 120 psi, but cyl doesnt look bad. That one was 5 bucks. Good recoil assy, tank, etc.
Power mac 6 was the filthiest, inside and out. Caked full of oil and sawdust. Recoil cover screw threads all stripped out, but has 160 psi and spark! Both it and the poulan ran with a little mix down the throat.
Still havent looked over the 110, but it has the recoil assembly, fuel line, and manual oiler pump parts I need for my mini mac 25, plus a 14" bar and decent chain.
$50.00 in the whole lot. 0312191648.jpg 0312191618.jpg 0312191851.jpg

Forgot this one. Got it back in January for $100.00. Has original 18" bar and I believe original chain. Just had to tweak the carb to run right in the wood and do a little "customizing" on the " formerly" low kickback chain. It pulls like a freight train and usually pops on the first or second pull. Had a new carb kit in it when I bought it. 0311192110a_HDR.jpg 0311192110a_HDR.jpg 0311192111_HDR.jpg 0311192110.jpg

Had a slow afternoon at work so drive about 30 minutes south of my house and stopped at a pawn shop new to me. This immediately caught my eye. Pull rope was broke but they claimed it ran when they took it in. Had a 20” Oregon bar in good shape and 3/8 chain about on its last sharpening but usable. Had tag for $119. I inquired and they pretty quickly said we’ll take $85 plus tax equals $90.10. I don’t think I could have said, “I’ll take it” any faster. Put in the trunk and went home. Rope had only broken at knot on starter pulley. I re-tied, tensioned it up and was back in business. Fuel in it smelled good. I added some bar oil as it was empty. Put choke on, pulled about 10 times and nothing. Primed it at carb throat, nothing. Popped top cover off and checked spark, had spark. Primed the cylinder thru spark plug hole. 3 pulls later and running. Throttles out, idles, oils. Let it cool. Removed muffler and piston and cylinder look perfect!
