Good saws, that is a 440 I'm holding in my profile pic.Haven't posted in a while, but its been very, very quiet as far as saws go here. Almost nothing of interest has popped up for sale locally. There was a poulan 5200 but it went in a few hours.
Did get to work on this 440 recently. Swapped in a Tilly HL from a 250, put on a 3/8 pitch rim and got it all dialed in. Need to get a chain for the 32" Oregon bar and then i'll test it out.
Runs good so far.

This is the first one I've had with the smaller bucking spike.

Overall the saw is very clean, i'd saw it saw barely any use in its life. The oil tank was full of black waste oil, but all the pumps function good, so i'll just add some varsol, run it empty and then top up with fresh bar oil.
There's still a lot of dirt on it yet,I didn't have a chance to clean it good on the outside yet.It sounds POWERFUL when I hit the throttle.I think it might need a baffle,it hurt my ears,Lol.Clean looking. I bet it sounds great at idle
Thanks Kevin! You were right about not needing the air vane governor.I looked closer today & it was indeed broken off,don't know if it was deliberate or accidental.Looking good there Ed!!

I don't think purple sandals are that bad ?, maybe not interview attire.
Since you brought it up jethro, i got another mcculloch chainsaw last week!! I was ebaying and watched a pm515 go thru its auction. My buddy talked me into bidding and i ended up winning it. Its in great shape. Ive never seen one so i was happy. The pm515 was preceded by the pm510 which was preceded by the sp40 saws. Well it had 2 issues. 1 was carburetor needing rebuilt. Easy enough. Had a kit in it and it was running in no time. 2 it had a leaky seam on the fuel tank!! Since it shares a tank with the mini macs i had a spare. Got that swapped out and off to test. I must say i was very impressed. Great runner and rather easy to tinker with. And in this case not a common model. Here are some pics.View attachment 936602View attachment 936603View attachment 936604
