Recommended Posts

Yep that’s the saw. Going to have a look tomorrow if I get time he is in no rush for it back so will be a learning saw for me. Got his eye on a 500I

The saw belongs to a good mate. I’m ok with old kit so being Sunday.
Have pulled the muffler and some very light scoring on the piston. It has not lost all compression but don’t know the saw. I’m used to my makita saws so used to dripping spark plugs.
Sorry not the best pic of the piston. IMG_1632080531.628068.jpgIMG_1632080581.619198.jpgIMG_1632080531.628068.jpg

Fix your air line while your in the workshop 🙈 a quick blow off would save a world of pain when you get crap in the pot and score the bore 🤐

Pulled the pot today very light scoring on the exhaust side. But very heavy gouges on the side above the gudgeon pin suspect the missing Curley tail from the pin clip is to blame. Looks like it’s a parts saw ☹️☹️IMG_0029.thumb.jpg.3bd620ea26874be50eacdb37118753cf.jpgIMG_0031.thumb.jpg.7892c14965971e0976a93c5354f81224.jpg

On closer inspection found the circling end wedged in the top of the cylinder just next to my screwdriver IMG_1632223609.976779.jpg

Yes that's beyond re use. People on here have previously said those circlips with tails cause problems. I still use them as I cannot deal with the plain ones.

Mmmm, just checked the piston and it is a VEC one, I probably couldn't get a Meteor one at the time and charged accordingly. Looks like the circlip lasted for a couple of years and let go....didn't last as long as it should but at least it earn't its money back!!
