Garage Sale: 2 saws and non-matching case: $20.
I married the SXL to a 20in Oregon bar that came with my XL923 (It's now sporting a 31in Windsor bar!), checked the compression (>140psi), and the fuel line and filter in the tank. That fuel looked and smelled okay, so I started it in just a few pulls. I tweaked the L screw on the carb and used it to cut up a few fallen branches. Here it is pictured in the middle of my now three-some of SXLs. From L to R they date from '91, '92, and '85.

When it's really windy, it's good to have one of these in each hand to keep you from blowing away! O

A friend traded with me this VI Super 2 Auto for a bottle of my favorite beer. It dates from 1978. It's missing the bar adjustment/chain tightening screw. I think I can steal one from one of my parts saws. I've yet to try to start it.

020 AV I got for free. Runs on prime, gotta go through the carb. Only thing really wrong with it is the broken clutch cover. Otherwise very clean saw.

are super 2s rare/valuable?
Sorry I am late to answer and someone beat me to it. I don't think they are any more valuable than any older saw, but I have a couple Homelites that I like and use. An XL-1, 45 cc, 16 inch bar, that I use for small jobs, and a Homelite power master XP1000, that runs great but I am missing a muffler. I have decided that I am going to make one, but there are too many other jobs with a higher priority right now.

Not sure how i did here, but i am feeling pretty good about it. Guy wanted to give it to me, i told him no, finally he said 50 bucks, i said 100 he refused, it went home with me. It runs, he said it was “tired” I haven’t done a compression test yet but I suspect it needs rubber parts and filters and maybe a plug.
Said he has too many and this is too heavy, i was looking for a beater, this is nicer than i had in mind.

I would visit him with a "free" a load of firewood and offer to stack it in a location of his choosing.

Theres been enough friction over the years that i am not feeling very guilty. He can be a douche. Also it does seem to have some form of compression issues. Haven’t spent any time to figure it out

Fair enough in that case. If it just needs a new piston ring consider it a gesture of reconciliation; if the piston and cylinder are cooked, the saw was just something he didn't want anymore and value it accordingly.
