And I thought you were nuts at the time Mike.  Different strokes for different folks.:D

Sometime afterwards, the guy that you traded with sold it on feebay..............and the guy that bought it from him tried to pull a fast one.   About the time I lost touch with that fellow the ebay thing was still being resolved IIRC.

I traded my nice 1050A away (for a cherry Poulan 4900) once I got a 7ci Homelite.  What a saw is 'worth' is a difficult question.  Sale prices vary wildly on 'collector' saws.  One minute a saw will sell for $500............................and then a week later an even nicer one will have a hard time crossing $150................and at that same time, a more 'pedestrian' model will sell for twice that.  There's no constants....

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.
