McCulloch Titan 70
« on: July 15, 2011, 01:58:56 pm »
This is kind of an interesting saw .According to McBob and others this thing was made by McCulloch in Italy in a factory they owned .

70 cc ,vertical cylinder  made around 1990 .It's in real good shape and handles the 24" bar it came with real good .

In comparrison to say the Mac 700 it doesn't quite have the grunt but has the speed of a Stihl so it about evens out .Fact it's not much different if any from a Stihl 044 powerwise .

Dumb me couldn't figure out why in the world the danged thing would sputter out after a prime because the thing had sat about 4 years .So I rebuilt the carb ,nice but not it .Fuel lines gone .Shoulda thought of that in the first place .

This model sitting on the tail gate of my Ranger is the only one I've ever seen in my lifetime  except pictures on flea bay .

Posted same pic 2 times.  ;)

A couple posts under the shrouding .This is the power side .The thing runs an outboard clutch like Stihl with evidently a crankshaft driven center mount oil pump .The screw  right center below the clutch is the adjustment .

Top side ,center combustion chamber decomp .The rubber gizmo on the spark plug boot completely seals off the top shrounding so the fan blows full force over the cylinder .Must work ,this thing is clean as a pin and I have never blown out the dust .

It's got a pretty good sized air filter all things considered which seems to work fine .The gas cap is some model of Husqvarna which I had to slightly modify to work .Hmm gas cap mod ,who knew . ;D

Actually by brother in law gave me this thing along with a half dozen others .One was what got turned into the piped mini Mac .

He complained this Titan was hard to start ,well with a **** fuel line that makes sense it would start hard .

Ha good old Dave used to go with us about 30 years ago when myself and my dad who was about my age now did a lot of cutting .The old man and I ran Mac PM 610's ,his pepped a tad bit .We always outran my brother in law which annoyed him .He showed up every week with a different saw but to no avail .Once he got his hot little hands on a souped 10-10 Mac which he ran on 50 to 1 with AV gas and 10 percent nitro .It ran alright just not too long .Grenaded a piston after about an hour .

I saw that myself . Like I said I've seen exactly one of them ,the one I own .I still think it was about a sink or swim last ditch effort on McCullochs part because by 1990 they had just about lost the war .

Just goes to show you if you don't take care of business you  won't have a business to take care of .They didn't and now they don't .
