    Don't know much about it other than my uncle gave it to me tonight. It is missing the carburetor but hopefully I can find one and get it running

    I started giving saws away a couple years ago. Not worthless Wild Things. I gave away 90-100CC pro saws. Got down to 12 saws. Now I'm back up over 40. Seems like every time I give a saw away, some one else gives me 3-4. Everyone I know has given me their Grandpa's XL12, or 08S, or 10-10. All they usually need is de goop the carb. Best luck, it only gets worse.

    It really sucks to be you :rolleyes: :laugh:.
    I managed to buy another 42 yesterday(another member grabbed it up for me), it was supposed to be a parts saw for me, mainly for the brake flare and parts. Well my buddy grabs it up and sure as the previous owner said it won't hold RPMS in the cut, so he cleans a few things up and then checks the tune, the high on the carb was out 4 turns, maybe that's what's wrong :dumb:. Oh, it did still need a few brake parts, and now I still need some brake parts for the other one, at least I'll have 2 runners :D.
    What you'll like Joe, is I gave one away a couple summers ago :cheers:.

    I used to be able to keep it under control, because I only brought home saws over 70CC's. Then I decided I wanted a Super EZ, because that's what we used as climbing saws back in the day. Now it's almost anything. I do have a scrounge I found visiting friends in NC, a running Mac 200 and a Homelite 150 Auto for $50. The shop was closed the day we left, so now I have to get my friend to grab it for me.

    its pretty hard living with CAD in Ireland, hard to come by second hand saws bigger than 60cc, sure you find a few but they are usually brand spanking new and expensive or totally beyond repair

    So it runs and it runs, then one day it just stopped running:laughing:.
    I was just thinking that I've ordered many things I've wanted from other states here as well as bought/sold saws from/to other countries, you just have to figure out how to do it.
    Seems when I look hard enough for something I find it, many times it kinda finds me actually, seems that if you put your mind/body to the task something is bound to happen.

    Found a Dolmar 143 today, the saw has 95cc, sounds and feels very powerfull, dated 1990

    Compression is very well, where the airfilter needs replacement before further use.

    The oiltank isn't made out of magnesium, brings his weight to 8 kg

    In my region its a hard to find model, i guess it isn't sold that much

    Paid 175 euro

    Local hardware/dealer gave me their two parts bins when they decided to get out of the repair business. This mostly complete carcass was in there.

    I bought another parts unit to complete this one. Here's the finished powerhead.

    After purchasing a couple new parts and selling the leftovers, I have a $60 562XP powerhead. I opened the muffler and put a 20" b+c on it i had on hand. It runs great. I had to do a little more legwork than normal, but there's my latest suckage.
