Ya Kevin......Seemed to do what needed to get done. No browning up the chain or bar.  I was getting after it on a damn cold day, I might add. Peeled out 4 stubs, all right at 15' long, starting w/a 24" mullberry then laid it into a 40" box elder, still no problems,  until I started 1/4ing up the cookies. Then I found some hardware. Nothing new there, after all, I'm a city tree wacker.....lol....Fresh chain, an back at it. The other 2 stink trees filled the whole bar, then made some more noodles.......still no brown....Maybe cause the wood was frozen......It was so cold I just grabbed a gal. of 30wt. motor oil. NO PROBLEM!

 I did have to fatten it up a bit going down to the 32" I feel quite comfortable w/the way it's running......A good 1st. outing......Don't want to brag it up to much until I get 10 or 15 gal. of juice thru it......lol .....Shouldn't take long, burned up 7 to 8 tanks that day.

Got the 1050 out yesterday.......Dropped a little mix in the plug hole, alternating into the carb. also.....fired right up each time.....After doing this 4 different times .......it just wouldn't pull fuel on it's own.......I may be moving soon and decided to hang it on ebay as a parts saw......if anyone is interested....

I may have thrown a bid on that one.....

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 won't be going crazy in that auction.  Looks like it has good potential so long as the p/c are good.  I've got enough big-inch Homelites that it's not a must-have however....
