Starter won't engage and found coarse thread bolts in the lower muffler holes so someone was in there. Not sure if the cylinder is oem. Too much crap on the bench to mess with it yet. $50

I think it'll clean up nice. I didn't do anything but pull the covers off. I'll post it up if I ever get to it.

Probably the dirtiest saw I've ever seen, looks like it was dunked in old motor oil and then rolled in a compost pile, but I'm sure it will be sweet with a little elbow grease

I don't know if it's build up from running mowers in the shop or what. It's just a black film that doesn't stain anything and seems to preserve them. I got an 011 from the same place that looks the same. I picked two other saws up from another place that looked about the same but the black crap on those dried the plastics out and there wasn't any way to make them look very good.

I was told I could pick up a non-running MS361 for cheap from where my brother works if I wanted. I decided to investigate and found out from the owner that the saw didn't run when he got it so he replaced the carb and fuel line and it still didn't run but before he could keep messing with it he moved and forgot about it. I ended up buying it for $50 along with a spare air filter cover and side cover. Before I headed home for the day I "stole" a new spark plug I found for it so junk wouldn't get in the plug hole. Got it home, put a little gas in the carb and it fired right up. Then my brother found a brand new 28 inch Rollomatic bar for that ended up being thrown in with the saw for no additional cost. All I need to do is tune it, get a chain and a top cover and it'll be ready for work. Sorry 'bout the crappy cellphone pics. IMG_E2528.jpg

Poulan 41 oil "cap" looks like it came out of an oil pan.

The carb looks kinda filthy.

And the air filter looks....rusty? I think the fuel filter is clogged. And the choke pull won't slide as it's corroded and stuck in the case right now.

Got it started with a carefully aimed straw full of gas.

Pretty big clutch on the 41.

I was thinkin since it only has half a muffler, that this might be a candidate as a pipe saw. And since the air filter doesn't look great, and some of the gaskets around the filter fell apart, I might be able to mount an external K&N.
Unfortunately, the manual only oil pump isn't working. Maybe I should mount it on a retro looking fat tire mountain bike.

What's the backstory on all those?
I don't really know much about these. A friend called me this morning and told me about them, so I went to the guy's house and bought them. I have gotten some from the same guy years ago, and I think he just waited until he collected enough to let me know about them.
