The air filters are still available, but the top covers are NLA. Parts for this family of sas is starting to get iffy, particularly the early twin coil models. Noticing it on the orange side also.

The 2 piece coils were a problem a couple of years back.  OEM set was around $180 or more if I remember right.  Now lots of sources for AM.  I've been stocking up on everthing I can find for this series because of "iffy".   Seeing more and more NLA's.

At $180 a set, we're better off if they're NLA.  :D

The shortage of parts for the 100 series Jonsereds is getting to the point of being frustrating.  Scott at Chainsawr.com has new and used parts for a lot of brands, specializes in Jonsered.  His operation has kept my 910E in operation by supplying good used parts.  Recently The muffler was burned out and he supplied a used unit  that kept the saw going.

The frustration is due to having a very good, strong running Jonsered  that I would like to keep using for a long time.  It continues to be my primary falling and bucking saw that I use on trees over 24 inches in diameter and it appears that it will cost at least $600 to $1000 and possibly more to replace the saw if a part, that I would consider a normal wear part, like a muffler, dies. 

I realize that planned/designed obsolescence my be involved and in the bulk of products that is definitely the reason for lack of replacement part availability.  One very interesting thing about chainsaws is the tendency to become extremely attached to your favorite saw that always starts, runs strong and in large, has a history of being bomb proof.

Preferably, the manufacturers would do more to provide parts access for good saws of age, or aftermarket suppliers would pick up the short fall.  That being said, without the above occurring, we are fortunate that we have the Chainsawr.com type of business that work hard to keep the rest of us in operation.  Keep the old saw parts coming!

I wouldn't say that anything is "planned" beyond the fact that after a certain time there is no business case to be made to support a saw that is 30 years old. For those of us that have them of course, we'd like to be able to still get parts. But the number of such saws still in use is limited and the demand for parts is too small to manufacture or import them.

I recently scored another load of stuff from a former Jonsered dealer. I think I've got enough now that I will "go public" at some point and offer the stuff for sale. But I first need to inventory everything and get it organized and maybe on my website. Many of the part numbers are worn off the bags. Fortunately though, I'm enough of a Jonsered Geek that I recognize most of them.

There are some interesting things in those boxes, much of it NLA. NOS 70E cylinder assembly, 111 cylinder gaskets, a fair amount of 900 series parts. Lot's of goodies.

I know where new 111 top ends are  at if someone ever needs a hook up ;) .  Not cheap give away priced but fair priced and worth it if you do 111's IMO

Spike60,

I for one would be very interested to see what you have come up with in the cash of Jonsered parts.  I only have one Jonsered product, the 910E, my baby, but my youngest son is, as you say, a Jonsered geek, he has chainsaws, back pack powered weed whackers, hedge pruner, pole saw and other Jonsered equipment.  I have used several of his toys and they have sold me on Jonsered, with the exception of a weak dealership organization in our area of Oregon.

Almost had to go through an act of Congress to locate any muffler for my 910E, let alone a muffler equipped with an approved spark arrester.  Scott at Chainsawrs .com sent me a good used muffler that had no spark arrester, a requirement in the woods of Oregon.  He also sent some spark arrester screen material I was able to braze into the burned out muffler to produced a fairly good unit to meet the State requirements. 

My next step will be to attempt to fabricate a spark arrester equipped muffler of my own design if I am unable to locate another one in satisfactory condition.

That saw has been extremely good to me.  It has even spent many hours on the end of a 48" double ended bar, matched up with a big Remington power head, both of which were mounted to an Alaska Saw mill to produce curly maple slabs for one of my sawmill customers.  It has gone back to falling and bucking since I acquired a Lucas Mill back in 1996.

Spike60, I will be looking forward to your post after your get your cash of goodies sorted.

I just picked up a 625 as a fixer. I have to find a new tank/handle, but other than that and the air filter cover it's all there. Since I am the type that has trouble leaving things stock, I am wondering if it would be worthwhile trying to find a 670 cylinder for this saw? If I installed the 670 cylinder/piston, would I have to also find a different top cover to clear the spark plug on the 670 cylinder?

I believe the 670 boots are no longer available- might want to think about a 272 top
