I had one of these for 25 years. They are around 45cc and pull a 16" 3/8 chain just fine.

I have one now down in the barn that someone gave me. I stole the chain from it and use on my Dolmar 115i. I gave the bar to cut4fun I think? I don't want to run it. The vibration is so bad, my hands would ache for a week.

Like Jim said V i B r A t I o N. 

Sorry was trying to type right after running it.  Not a saw for me but seems to going to be traded in.   

Noticed while pulling it over the chain wants to turn too. So must be something stuck.  I can stop the chain and idle with chain on the wood though.  If I idle it down passed where I feel idle rpm should be it shuts off.

150's are evil.  Homelite's answer to the mini-mac.  Only good thing about them is that they share clutch pars and bars/chains with Super E-Z's.8)
-Aaron

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.

They are great for keeping the mozzies away, I have 1 that runs fine smokes like hell but wont cut as soon as you hit the wood she bogs the chain but motor wants to keep revving so I gather clutch is stuffed. Put a pic up of it once and a comment was it was an east coaster with rubber grip not real common????

Well that was easy as to why the clutch was acting weird and I couldnt adjust to get chain to stop.

Your auto oiler diaphragm is shot.  It's sucking bar oil into the engine.  Great for mozzie fogging..............but not for cutting.:D
