Partner 400 CHEAP!
« on: April 20, 2014, 02:46:39 am »
Stopped by the local auction house Friday night.
Hadn't gotten more than 10 feet inside the door when something yellow caught my eye.
I first thought it was going to be a 5000 Partner and my ears perked up a bit.
As I got closer I could see it wasn't a 5000 but a nice little Partner nonetheless.

When I finally moseyed over to it turned out to be a 400.
I didn't know there was such a critter, but it looked to be pretty nice under the grime.
The auctioneer said it was guaranteed to run, so for $20.00 it came home with me.
As I left the auction house I tried to start it and it would start but not run.
I figured carb kit and fuel lines/filter, but when I got it home I saw that the fuel line was kinked. It appeared that the line was leaking and someone had pulled it up through the case a bit and kinked it.
I reached in the tank with a pair of hemostats and pulled the line down a half inch and it started and ran.
Adjusted the carb and it seems to be doing fine.

Good find
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

Partner 400 is basically a Husky 40 of the 40-45-49 series.

The P400 is known as the first saw with a plastic case, and was the first saw in a "family" that consisted of the P400, P410, P450, P460, P490, P510, Jonsered 2041, 2045. 2050, and Husky 40, 45 and 49.
