Wish you had seen it yesterday and told me.  It's to late now.
 He was making sure I wouldnt take it for 100 plus shipping last night, so he didnt have to take apart for a guy.

This is my first husqvarna, so I got a lot to learn.  So far, I'm not real impressed with what I think is the closest dealer, I got some more looking around to do.

Did it arrive in one piece? How does it look to you? If you have questions post em!

It did arrive thursday.  The pictures made it look better overall than it is.  Don't get me wrong its not really trashed, but more scuffs than pictured.  Overall I am happy with it at the price & it does have a mahle cylinder.  The inside dog is missing cuz the screws are stripped out.  I really need to fix that cause most of my cuts started a little crooked.  I had ordered a techlite from baileys, didn't realize it wasn't shipping immediately.  I was kinda in a pickle needing to cut some wood & really wanted to use it.  I had a 16 or 18" bar & chain from a garage sale homelite sxl that I could barely get on the 7 pin, but it did work.  It runs good, still haven't compression tested it yet but it does feel good.  I bought a large dog set, but proly swap someone for the standard set.  What size screws hold that dog on?  Maybe I can open up to the next size?  Here is its first load.

OK, great here is the scoop on the inner dogs. Stock they use a 4mm M5 x 20 or 25 socket head cap screw. They can be re-threaded to the next size up, that would be 5mm M6. The top screw goes in a blind hole so you must be careful when doing it. They strip because people don't keep them tight because they are too lazy to remove the bar and chain in order to keep them tight. A little blue Loc-Tite doesn't hurt either! I do this all the time even to brand new saws because I know how people treat them. The bottom one passes through the case. Depending on how badly they are stripped you may not have to pre drill you might be able to go directly to the tap. Resist the temptation to deviate from the metric screws.

Lazy is exactly this person.  I have never seen a bar cover chewed up so much from the chain.  I will stay with the metric screws & open them up to 5mm.  I was thinking red loctite, maybe thats a little too permanent.  Thanks!
