980 Oleo-Mac
« on: August 27, 2011, 02:26:13 pm »
Just been inside my old 980. Someone who knows what they are doing should be able to make a good 5 cube racer out of one.

I am just cleaning up a few internal things for a small race.

Its a poplar that was milled 4 months before the GTG. First date was cancelled so we put the cant in the lake for the summer.

Well funs over for the summer. Had our little GTG/race today in memory of our Husky dealer. New dealer had some 562's for use to play with. Good saw, alittle behind my 2159. ;)

The old 980 came thru and won its class. Put a 9 pin gear on it and got a sub 5 sec run out of it. May play with it some this winter. Play is done, next time I pick up a saw it will be to work it.

An Oleo-Mac is a rare bird in itself,selom seen .Fact the only one I've ever seen was Gypos' 999 which is  rather  famous or infamous depending on how you look at it .
