Was given this today along with a bunch of bars, looks in pretty light used condition with good compression, will throw a carb kit on and see what happens, will go nicely with my five other 009s

Stopped by the local Husky dealer to pick up some chain tensioners, happened to ask if they had any junk saws in their yard - girl at the front said she’d check. I mentioned I’d be interested in any 300 series or earlier as she walked out the back. A minute later she came out with a little 240 and the beauty I ended up taking home with me. Seemed like she was locked up at the shop, but I took off the bar & chain when I got home and the crank rotated! Didn’t feel any play in the bearing on the PTO side, which is encouraging so far. Definitely looks like an old logging saw, and it’s missing a lot of small pieces, but it’s a 394xp, for the price of $0, and it came with a 28 inch bar with an almost new chain on it. 66188373-8353-43A2-8A18-E62FEE3E9445.jpeg FE060BEF-2B5D-49A0-BBC7-BD07E5483933.jpeg 0CD87BC9-88A3-459E-B81E-8E292AC6FB33.jpeg

And it has that limited edition access port to grease the clutch needle bearing on the go!

Looks like I may have lucked out, but further verification is needed and some cleanup on the inside at minimum 😁63C9C8F2-272C-4736-971C-4C5BB309D4F3.jpeg

The good is good- the bad is ugly!
Somebody made a bad and early in saw life mistake with that one, you would think in this day and age we live in, saws would have an oil sensor in the tank that could detect oil or lack thereof and interrupt the ignition....... but then I guess they would not sell as many new replacement saws! :p
If it's premix how could any sensor detect the presence or lack of 2 stroke oil in the gas?! This is up to the user/owner job. Not mentioning the oil to fuel ratio for a good lubrication... One incompetent user could screw that up too...

These are the pictures that crack me up when loggers tell others how they baby their saws! A fine example of maintenance.

I stopped at a garage sale held by one of my former clients who still owes me a little money. I brought all these goodies home in exchange for taking $40 off his balance due.

Can't say I've been able to post on this thread for a good minute, but how bout this. Buddy sent me his 7310p last winter to try out. Hits me up today and asks when my birthday is. Told him at the end of this month. Then he tells me that 7310 is yours Happy Birthday. Couldn't thank him enough for that generous gift. Ohh did I mention its ported, pop up piston, and has a dual ported can muffler? One mean saw.20220610_173247.jpg 20220610_173258.jpg
