Title: HC
Post by: RoyM on October 05, 2015, 05:39:28 pm
I picked up an HC for free today, the dealer would not work on it and the customer wasn't willing to pay anyway. It is complete except for a chain, compression feels good so will get after it once I clear off a couple of projects. What a beast, it would take a bigger man than me to pack it around all day. Pictures to follow.

It is actually a pre Pioneer IEL, they were made in Vancouver B.C. This model was only manufactured in 1956 and 57. It has a Tillotson HL carb so I'm hoping I can make it bark.

After repeated attempts to get this miserable madre going I found a small piece missing from the reed, a small plastic disc. The one from the recently acquired parts saw is even worse. Sigh. It is back on the shelf for now, more important issues pressing.

They were very popular in Canada, had a good support network and were reliable by the standards of the time. I regret letting a running RA go, it was one of the first with an all position carburetor.

Roy you have a piece of history  there and it only got better with the next model introduced.  The 1959 Stihl Contra/Lightning was designed around that model. Lot's of "spies" in the woods back in the day. :D
