Swap out the carburetor for one with a Hi and Low adjustments and a little modification to the muffler will improve the usefulness of the saw.
Keep the chain sharp and let it self feed and it will serve you well.
Any suggestions on the carb? Got the saw for free, he just wants to borrow it when needed. Definitely one of my groundwork chains but would guess it would be the best he has worked with considering how I have seen all the saws he has used.
I have already ordered parts that I know need replacement, and that it is a cheap saw so that leans into pricing things of course.
But for free, getting it running right for under 60 bucks is a bargain. Just limbing and other work for that one, got a couple of 700 dollar saws I am saving for to have for next wood season. Hopefully hit my target in my woods maintenance then get a few semi loads of log length to process and sell 40-60 cord.
100% not a saw I would buy for myself.

550 has the full wrap, looks like the fire started around the spark plug boot and melted the handle and trigger too. Im guessing fuel leak from the carb dribbling down. He also just gave me a husky L65 or L77 as far as i can tell. Haven’t found any numbers off it yet.
65 has the plug hidden under the top cover.

The husky is an L65. Worth cleaning up?

You may be asking the wrong person ;o) I'm mostly into older 60's-80's saws (usually can't afford the really nice pre 60's models), so for me the L65 (and the Homelites) would be more of a keeper than the 55 and 240 for example. But if it is for every day use I wouldn't necessarily go that way ...

My new record, up to 24 saws. Yeah yeah, its nothing compared to a lot if you. The husky is an L65. Worth cleaning up?
Those 65s kind of run the gambit, a really nice one is a 200-400$ saw but I find them for 20-100$ range alot.
The 77 version is more desirable.

Boy don’t I feel like a dummy,I read the description before scrolling down for the picture.”What kind of chainsaw has a 3/8 copper line from the head to the tank?Well he fixed the compression issue!” Then I saw the picture :dumb: Y’all be good and stay safe!

Garage Sale: 2 saws and non-matching case: $20. I'm not much for Poulans of that vintage, but how long would someone have to search to find a cleaner SXL??. And I've got plenty of Stihls that will fit in that case.
