I love the sound of those old, long stroked saws. Seems he was running her a tad rich.

Now another item worth thinking about rings for the 750 i see an entry in H of H that Mac Rings from the PM105 and SP105 fit at 2.25 there thin ring tool steel
I bought a spare cylinder from a fella called American Bulldog and now would like to source a spare 750 piston to check the groove thickness or if one of our members has one then could they measure it for us and post it here for all to see i know rings for the PM / SP105 are scarce as well but its another source for those wanting to keep one of the 750's going.

If I recall correctly that series of which the 550,650 and 750 belong was the very last of the pro type timber saws Homelite ever built .

Since this thread got started Brad S has a nice 750.good runner .On a big log however I can out gun him with my 2100S .That's the difference between a piston port and a reed valve .The old reeders were pullers ,about like a Clydesdale .When you get into long bars and big wood speed isn't where it's at,it's the torque that gets it done .

His 750 is loud too.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
