I did have a 24" on a 60 cc once buried .It pulled it okay .The saw was ported though, 038Av  By the same token I ran a 32"  on a 72 cc ,also ported .

That aside I agree a 16- 18-20 is a better option for 60 cc stock .

titan 57 is still my firewood saw today and is the best saw ive ever owned, keep good lines in it and its one of the best all around saws ever produced. Run a castor based two cycle oil like klotz supertechniplate and its very likely you wont live longer than the topend on that saw.

Why wouldnt you repair them?

They really are not worth much.

OK this winter I must get into my basket case 57. Not that I haven't had other interesting saws to work on.  All the lines are done but I was stymied due to a messed up crankcase gasket.  Thanks to Steve (brokenbudget) I have everything I need but the gasket.  Maybe I could just use Motoseal instead?

Only 1 Titan I am after and Al owns it.   ;)  Someday I will find it, hold it, love it, run it and then move on.  :D :D

I actually ran across a NOS titan 57 last year. New lines all around, and new carb diaphragms and fired it up. Looking back, Iprobably should have kept it, but iIneeded the cash, so iIsold it. I sold them new back in the 90's, and they were a good running saw

If often makes me wonder what might have happened had McCulloch would have went to this design years before.However there was more to the story than saw designs.We will never know because the McCullohs I grew up running and the company is just part of history.
