How's it going today? I know these aren't exactly valuable machines but for some reason I love the styling of those slow grey Echos. I grabbed a CS440 for nearly free that was missing the oiler, clutch and drum (engine only needed a carb clean/kit and a new fuel line) and have been able to scavenge most of the parts I need, but not having luck finding the plate seal, 17531038330, this little guy.
Buy a Echo Plate- Seal  for your Echo Power Tool - We have the parts and diagrams to make your repairs easy.
Seems like it's a cheap part, except for the $22 shipping (almost $40 total in the pretend money up here).... and unfortunately I can't find any busted saws available near me that I could strip that part from, so for the purpose of fabricating my own (unless someone wouldn't mind slapping one in an envelope and sending it up to Canada for a few bucks), would someone be willing to take a few measurements and let me know if this is a metal seal or paper gasket?
Also, finally got my 701 up and running. OEM piston replaced last year (I hate those bloody cylinder mounting bolts, though) and a carb clean/kit, new lines and filter, have a new spur but really having issues getting the clutch off. 3 nuts popped off on the inside of the muffler so it's just wired on until I weld a plate or new nuts in there. Ran nice for a single tank last year then started having issues and getting worse until unusable after less than 3 tanks, I drained it and put it aside until yesterday. Gave it fuel, can get it to fire and barely idle really lean on choke, carb adjustments do nothing, no fuel going out the carb, definitely a carb problem. Carb filter screen was clogged, cleared it out (and checked all the jets with spray carb cleaner), no need to kit because it was still impeccable from last year. The fuel line split right at the filter (must've clamped a bit too tight) and sucked in crud from the tank. I'll get a picture or 2 and edit.
EDIT: Tossed in a video of the 701.
