Efco 962 Olympyk 962

Is a Efco 962 the same as Olympyk 962?  When were they made and are new parts available? 

Your opinions on them?

Yes that is an Emak saw (Efco, Olympyk and Oleo-Mac). Parts are available. 156 thru 165 parts interchange. Crank bearings are weak. They gave out in the 10 156-165 models I had in less than 2 months. They failed in the TW ported 962 in under 40 tanks.

I don't miss the hassle of selling Efco.

The avatar setup on this website is pretty forgiving about size. Find a nice picture and try to load it into your avatar.

I set it up where even someone like me could use without a hitch.  ;)

A found a straight gassed Oleo Mac 962 a couple of years ago, I managed to find a A/M top end, It's been a good saw
