Cut4fun,

That is affirmative, I am usually always on the lookout for parts that can be of use on my Jonsered 910E.  The saw is presently running great and I have accumulated some reserve wear parts, but you never know what might need some help next.

If anyone has a line on some potential usable parts for a Jonsered 910E I am interested.

Chainsawrepair,

I am presently operating with a muffler that is not equipped with a spark arrester.  It is in good shape, but in the State of Oregon we are supposed to utilize chainsaws that are equipped with approved spark arresters.  I have been operating only on my own land, but you are facing large fines if you are on State property without the proper equipment.  It also would not be good to accidently start a fire while not using a spark arrester where ever you are located in this state.  Issues of liability and illegal equipment would both be involved.

For the reasons mentioned I would definitely like to acquire a muffler equipped with an approved spark arrester system.  I have some spark arrester screen material and was planning to attempt to modify my old muffler by welding the screen material over the burned out area.  I would prefer to locate a descent unit that is factory equipment and not home made, if possible.

If you are aware of something that would fit my needs I am interested.

To update thread participants, I have still not been able to get to the ECHO CS-440 EVL.  A reminder from The Chainsaw Repair forum showed up in my e-mail today and I realized I had left the thread hanging relative to outcomes regarding bringing the saw back to life.

Unfortunately, priorities continue to push this project back on the bench and now we are looking at spring farming activities and that is not good for completing this project.  Probably looking at the fall season to dig back into the CS-440 EVL.  Really hope I don't completely forget everything I learned about this unit, but am assuring the thread I fully intend to return to this mission when possible.

The thread members had helped greatly and took me a long way on my journey to bring the saw back to life.  Have maintained most of the resources you helped me acquire, so with luck I will be able to review the posts and bring this to completion.  Rest assured I will be returning to the forum for recommendations if the process bogs down.

I do occasionally check the Chainsaw Repair Forum to see what has been going on.  Thanks again, am expecting to report my outcome and/or will be returning for advice, if needed.

Nick, North West farmer
