echo cs510
« on: October 09, 2011, 02:10:01 pm »
had this dropped off at my house last night :) guy says it stumbles and misses after an hour of running. said he was sick of it and was going to buy a new saw at canadian tire ::) (only poolan and poolan husky there). i said i'll give you $75 for (jokingly) i have cash in hand. he said SOLD! :D
 i threw in a new fuel filter and it runs perfectly fine. the old one had a scum on it and wasn't letting fuel through. pulled the muffler to take a look and everything is perfect. looks like a new saw inside. it's a low hour saw, about 2 years old bought at potters small engine. now, you need to know, dan potter basicly threw this guy out of his store due to the fact the guy is a prick (the customer, not dan ;)), and dan wouldn't have anything else to do with him. so i ended up with him as a "customer"
long story short, it runs excelent, cuts excelent and i'mma happy cramper. heres the saw:




the chain was shot, but it came with a new one in the box :D

 One of my favorite saws, open up the muff and they cut better than good.   Steve

wooooo wee! sorry for the delay! ;D yes the 510/520 is a good saw. and with a proper muffler mod they do really wake up quite a bit. :)
i've owned a few of these and they all went off to new homes after a "customer" ran it after thinking of buying a new stihl or a box store junker.

I know what you mean there. Lot of idiots out there that dont know any better. 

Case in point. I have a like new rebuilt 1998 husky 55 with new top end rebuild 46mm open port.  Runs great IMHO. I was running 16" 3/8. Guy wanted 20" 325 so I went 7T, I put a like new oregon bar and like new chain on it for $200. Guy balked no way man I can buy a new 455 for $399 at lowes why would I pay $200 for a 14 year old saw.  LMAO I was like go buy the 455 saw at lowes. I will keep the 55 nuff said.
 He was like I will buy the 455 and race you with the 55. Now I started laughing. I was like bring it any day 55 against IF you buy the 455. Matter fact I will race for pinks I told the wife laughing. WOW these young guys now days just dont have a clue.
Heck I might even break out the 45cc 346 and race him if it likes, wonder if he mind if we cold started raced too.

meh, the 455 isn't really too bad a saw. tuned properly they will last a long time and run not too bad. :) BUT!
i find it funny how people will always think right away that the newer saw will always be the fastest. truth be known, even the open port 50,51,55's will put a big stomping on them 455s'. if you grab an open port 55....... ;D they'd be balling to daddy that you weren't playing fair ;D
if that 455 ended up with a proper muffler mod the guy would think he died and went to heaven. i've done a couple and they do run alot better than stock. you notice a big difference under your left hand while bucking wood :D

One of my employees just bought a 510 at a pawn shop for $150. Have not seen it but he says it is nice and clean.  He wants me to muffler mod it and go over the saw. Not familiar with echo. Any thing I should know to look for? Any pics of how some of you did the muffler mod would be great.

You will probably need to remove the H L needle restrictors that the EPA insisted on.  Pretty easy to do, you can even put them back on after proper adjustment. They are often set lean from the dealer. ::)

Dang I'd like to race that guy for beer money.  He can run his brand spankin' new 455 and I'll run my 1984 production 154SE. :D

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

I have a Echo 510 model airplane engine and also a Dolmar 115 model airplane engine.

They pull the same prop at the same rpm.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
