Re: Husqvarna 41 oil tank leak

Thanks for the suggestion. Using a hot soldering iron to reweld the crack seam is something I hadn't thought of. I think I might very well try that one. If done properly, should the weld / melt seam repair be flush with the surrounding surface, or will there be a depression / groove along the repaired seam? If the latter, should that then be surface coated with an epoxy product, such as the QuickSteel epoxy, do you think?

Yeah, it's probably borderline whether the model 41 is worth much more time and effort to get it going again. I guess it's the "raised poor" frugality in me that makes me want to try again, plus I hate to junk out a saw that was running & cutting fine just because of a crack in some plastic part. But regardless, the 41 won't be my go-to saw around the home again, even if repaired. Just an occasional use backup saw.
