To much, but what is it?   http://mansfield.craigslist.org/tls/4096152305.html



That's a late production C-72.  Same saw as a C-5/51/52, but with a longer stroke.  80.5cc.  He's about $225 too high.  A C-9/91 has that same longer stroke, plus a bigger bore.  85.5cc.  All C-9's and most of the C-91's (up to a certain serial #) also have the same four petal pyramid reed intake as an XP1000/XP1020/1050.  The last C-91's had the single 'flat' reed intake manifold as used on the C-5/51/52 and C-7/71/72.  The C-72 was produced LONG after all of the other C-Series models were discontinued.  IIRC they were made until 1986, along with the Super Wiz 80 gear drive, the Super 1050, the Super 1130G, and the SXL-925.

I can tell that the pictured saw is a late C-72 as it's all red (C-5/51/52 was blue, C-9/91 was red and green), has the 'tall AF cover (used on the C-51/52, C-71/72, and the larger XP and 2000-3100G saws), and has a black UT tag.  UT tags were first used in the 1970's, long after the other C-series saws were discontinued.  It also doesn't have an auto-oiler type clutch cover, so it cannot be a 1050...

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.

The C-5's were in the era of the 250 McCulloch while the Xl-12's in the era of the 10-10 Macs .Those larger C7,C9 never were seen in these parts during the perod of large reed valve engines .That was almost completely dominated by McCulloch .

Now more than likely in other parts that probabley would not hold true .

Paid 400 bucks for one in mint shape, 36 inch bar, and when I say mint I mean not a scratch or ding anywhere, put a 22" bow on it and she runs like a champ!! Best firewood saw I own when dealing with old saws
