Added a Homelite 750 to the pile
« on: January 19, 2012, 05:44:09 pm »
Snagged this one off Ebay for $200 shipped but the cylinder is going to have to be replaced or rebuild, I have already contacted US Chrome and have everything lined up if I can not find a replacement. Good news is the piston looks great and it is in G-VG shape cosmetically.

Very good muffler

Bad intake boot

Ring gap is way to much, both rings look the same

The silicone bandit has struck this saw at some point

Chrome is about gone and there is some slight pitting

US Chrome is about the only one I know doing blind cylinders. Any idea what the cost is? I only know the prices for Millennium and race cylinders.

I have been in contact with Scott Reath at US Chrome and the price is $198 plus shipping. They can only do closed port cylinders, Scott says their expanding diamond hone will be trashed by open ports. They require you to send the cylinder, piston, your specs on piston to cylinder clearance and they want you to strip all the accessories off any parts you send.

I have worked out a deal on a running 750 with a 42" roller nose bar and .404 chain, so this one may get pushed to the back burner for a while.

You really can't tell much by a picture .The piston doesn't appear that bad .Is the cylinder down through the chrome ?

Piston is in good condition, in person you can actually still see the machining marks. I do believe the chrome is worn through and there is some faint pitting right above the intake port, I will know more once I take a little sandpaper to the cylinder walls Monday. I also have two sets of the 85608 McCulloch rings on the way but I don't really want to gap them until I know exactly what I am going to do with the cylinder, these are slightly larger than oem at 2.280".

As a suggestion try some 3m green abrasive with kerosine rather than sand paper .It's not apt to eat through the chrome like sandpaper

Found a second 750 today via my Craigslist wanted ad. This one may not be as pretty to look at but it has great compression, no cracks/breaks that I have found, a solid muffler and I believe the bar/chain is around 30" though I have not put a tape on it.









As you can see from the last picture the paint is fairly nice under all that crud.
