Good looking saw  8). Is that the oil cap and fill back by the fuel cap?   If I was having a few that could create troubles for me  ::).

Sure is, they are stacked and they are the exact same sized caps.

No problem.  Post em up if I don't catch a relevant thread.  Funny enough, the original saw in this thread is the one in the video;)

Got to see a good looking JD 550 CS run at the GTG yesterday. Owned by a guy named Jeff right down the road from me.

What years were these saws made?

Cool you got to meet Jeff (prokarbine).  I just purchased a builder 540 from him last month, good guy and an honest seller.  What did you think of the saw?  They are a bit heavy but a solid runner IMO

I also had a member of AS pm me about a minty 8800 in the pawn shop by his work.  He grabbed it for me and it should be on my doorstep Wednesday!

As for build dates, best I can tell and have no solid evidence for, they were built along side the 8800 around 93.  This saw is difficult to find solid info on.  Seems no one remembers much about their release.
