Every so often I get the strong urge to pick up or build one of these saws.  They're strong runners, good lookers (I especially like the Jonsered versions) and I like the way they handle.

Have bid on a few over the years.  Never really put a winning effort into it however.  I already mess with way too many different makes/models of saws as it is.  Taking on another saw series would be lunacy....

I know what you mean Aaron.    But it keeps it interesting.   Just like those Homelites I had been working on.  Definitely different from some of my Poulans.

Now that why I do a couple series and then I will sell out of them everything. I did that with the 166 084 066 365 362 372 500 5000 490 590 325 already.  Wiped the shelves clean of then then all the parts.

Then I will dig deep into my new series likes to explore and learn on.

Thats why you will see me selling off whole series of saws at times.

When I sold you that 505 Roger I was thinking of clearing out this series.  But then I couldnt find anything in the 65cc - 85cc to replace the series I want to get into.

I have been wanting to do the 2186 2188 385xp 390xp though.  :P

Well if you come across one of the worm gears for the oiler like on a 505 that has the wings I am still in the market for one.   

No clue if this one is good or not yet. But since they are hard to find.
Have you looked at using the 475 metal worm gear as back up means. Looking how they slide into seal on 475 they may need shortened some since that dont happen with the updated 505 seal bearing deal.  Then again dont know as never tried it. Have you looked into this?

No I have not but sooner or later a 505 will show up and I will get a good one.   It really is no hurry but just keeping a look out is all.

Took a chance when I bought a 83cc 2083 off a guy. Heck he didnt know if it was a 52mm or 54mm. But I seen one hint that told me 54mm.  ;)
It lost a battle with a tree big time. I was just hoping the cylinder and pistons was good. Figured base might have been broken from the hit.

Real happy with the parts I am getting out of it. If someone needs a fly side down the road this one might be good just with a piece missing to left of muffler area.  :P

For once the chance pays off. Most times I do this I end up with one with big end rod bearing out of the crank.   8)   (dont know why G amble is a forbidden word in the software LOL = gamble )  ::)

Note to self = make sure you pull the freaking clutch off before you remove the cylinder and piston.    Done this more then once now and starting  to get to me forgetting over and over LOL. ;)

Going to take a chance on this jonsered 2083 that broke a ring. Posted about it in the PP505 thread.  They used a lil red barn aftermarket piston kit.

That is a good candidate for the 066 stihl piston conversion.     I would build another if all my other saws were not already good runners.

Just had a LOL moment.  Just sold that NOS metal jonsered metal clutch cover and my last plastic red one too. Also a recoil shell for jred. Hope it is in decent shape.

I just buy to build and then sell later. I have any saw I need at my disposal already too.
