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.
