Comparing those 2 pics I notice the rear part of the brake engagement thingy is broke off on plastic handle.


Yep Aaron. I am really hating my new old brain.  Just pizzes me off sometimes I am so forgetful now.  I scare myself sometimes.

My Dr sez that's from years of stress and lousy sleep.  Getting old before my time....

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.

That spring looks like it could somehow attach to that tab above it.  I just removed handle and tie strap the spring up so I could test her out.

oops working on pics

Found a recoil badge off a smashed echo on the shelf. So I removed it slowly.
Man those are heavy duty for a decal, thin aluminum or thick foil.

Noticed no dawg and the parts saw had one.

Thats a nice saw.

Pro built with metal crankcase and bolt on cylinder.  Weight is like a OE 346 and handles like one.  In the cut reminds me of OE 346 too.
