    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

    Rescued these three from a basement this morning. The 170 has the clutch off and looks like it was run with the brake on. The 234 and 340 are more interesting to me though.[​IMG]

    Got a Poulan Model 41 at a garage sale this morning. Wasn't really a part of the sale, but was sitting on the ground beside their barn amongst a bunch of other junk when CAD spotted it.
    He said ten dollars so I had no choice but to take it with me. 20190316_163313.jpg

    Little update on the 41.
    Where's the decomp button on this sucker?
    Compression is high.

    Just the cylinder side of the muffler was in place. So taking a look was easy enough. Cylinder looks good. And is supposedly cast iron sleeved?
    A tiny mark on the piston maybe.

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

    The carb looks kinda filthy.
    20190316_220551.jpg
    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.
    20190316_220611.jpg
    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.

    Now for the 234... got it unstuck too, but the coil is missing, so I may have to borrow some parts from my 242.

    Thanks! It was a 440 in there, several 361's and 362's, a few 260's, and I haven't looked through all of them yet. Most are still in the truck. :laugh:

    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.
