Ran across this saw on Marketplace tonight and ran down and picked it up. The saw was very clean. He was asking $60 in non-running condition.

I got him down to $50 and he threw in a new bar and chain.

He said it needed a coil. It was running and then quit and he never got around to fixing it. I was a little worried because he also said his tree trimming business has been really slow, so why didnt he have the time?

Anyway, I took it home and blew off the dirt, pulled the plug, and this is what I saw.

I think I found the problem. I dont know how this happens to a plug. I looked in the cylinder through the spark plug hole, and the piston looked perfect. It actually looked brand new without any discoloration. I put in a new plug and there was plenty of spark. Put it back together, and it fired right up.

I love deals like this.

This was a foreman's truck saw that didn't see much use. Got it for $250 with an extra new in the box chain.

Dumped out the old gas and refilled the tank then with a few pulls it fired up and ran as it should.
Would have rather found a good deal on a MS261 or a 346XP, but I just couldn't walk away from it.

I finally get to post in this thread. Today I picked up 27 NOS Oregon bars and 29 chains from an inventory clearance at an "undisclosed location" for $1.00 each. Lots of Husky, Jonsered, Echo, Shindawa stuff. Tomorrow I am going to the ATM and then back for carburetors and coils.

At $1 apiece, I just grabbed it all, so there will be a lot of sorting before I sell any of it. They said they would set aside old Stihl parts for me, and the guy there said he had a box of obsolete McCulloch parts. The last time this happened, someone came along and bought the whole lot and filled up a pickup. I just hope it's there tomorrow.

Got this 266 for the price of the guys lunch. Still working on him about his other three Husqvarnas he “inherited”. My pal is die hard Stihl and John Deere guy. Don’t talk New Holland or Husky near him....

Used the 266 the first weekend I had it. Ran like a champ!

I would too, my buddy got 80% off the whole Stihl dealership except the power units and he took it all to I wish I got there before him.

If you know the quote, then you know it's the ultimate "you suck" response.

Went back today, good but not as good as yesterday. Got a bunch of clutch drums and a few clutches. They also put aside the Stihl stuff for me, but it was mostly smaller stuff. The clutch drums and sprockets look like there are some oldies there. I just have to identify them by whatever part numbers I can find on them or their boxes. Same deal, $1 per part or bag of parts. I'm through now. Let the high volume vultures descend.

My wife went to NC to visit her friend, she brought me home two "yeller sawz". One I found a year or so ago, posted it's location here, and nobody followed up. He still had the mac 200 and let me have it for $35. My wife's friend gave me her fathers Mac 10-10. It runs great.

Scored these this morning from a retiring firewood seller, 2 x 395xp part saws, 385xp, Jonsereds 621 and Mac 15 all for $80aud.
Seller also had a 288xp and 3120xp which he wants to offload, I've made an offer on them and I'll give him a few days to think about it.
