If I recall correctly the one Adam Clark built for Wojo had a different coil than in the picture .I have no idea what became of that saw or Wojo for that matter .The last I saw either one was over near Meadville Pa .

Scott didn't have a short bar to fit it so I took along both a Husqvarna bar and a McCulloch 16 inch bar but we couldn't get the thing started .Evidently unknown to us one of the coil wires was shorted out .I heard later they got it running which it did good .Damned thing was about like rope starting a Harley .I didn't get a picture of it but maybe someone did .

Yeah, this saw has ties to Ohio, but I think may have come from out state, IIRC Wojo lived right nearby me.....

Since this thread was started I now have two of this model .One is running although it needs a set of rings .The other is a work in progress .

It's been a year and a half and I'm kind of slow of late .I think in that time I've got all the parts rounded up including another totally intact crankcase with the rotating assembly to finish two saws from three crankcases .Two sets of piston rings are in transit as I type .
By doing a lot of research I found the sizes for the seals which are relatively common metric size .I don't think I need bearings.I even found the original nut that holds the top cover on which surprised me .The P100 Partner/McCulloch SP 1000  was never a popular saw  in these parts so parts locally are non existent .I've resurrected a lot of saws from the dead pile but these two have been the most challenging so far .These saws in 1983 were upwards of $700 so it most likely was prohibitive for  the normal chainsaw user .Plus the size as 100 cc saws just didn't get used in that time period except by loggers and this is not high impact  logging ,corn fields as far as the eye can see .
I did manage to find an original factory manual from another web forum with parts lists and information on Partner chainsaws and cut off saws .At least I'm not totally flying blind which I often have to do .I always get it but it might take  time to figure out .

I might point out to those interested the P-100 is almost the same as the Partner K1200 concrete saw .In this area Partner was not a front runner on chainsaws but they were a very popular concrete saw .Finding parts has been a problem using the older Partner numbers but since Husqvarna took over if you insert the Husky numbers you can find them .For example just recently I thought perhaps new piston pin bearings might be a good idea .On a search on the net from online suppliers they wanted 40 bucks a pop for them but a search on flea bay I have two in transit at 12 a pop with free shipping using the Husqvarna part numbers .Some times if you are lucky there is more than one way to skin the same cat . ;D

So then are there any of the Husqvarna concrete saws that are the same as the P-100.

I'm not exactly sure although some of them use basically the same model numbers .For example K1200 Partner .While I have the Partner and McCulloch parts numbers the only way I know is what I find on the internet .I don't have anything that covers Husqvarna concrete saws .Believe me I've spent hours trying to get info on these things .

Old thread but after all this time and now retired nearly two years I've finally started the rebuild on two. Mac 1000 /Partner P100's One will be in McCulloch trim the other Partner .I've got all the parts I think unless one coil is bad which I don't know plus  the seals .Partner IPL's are most screwed up I've ever seen .I found an IPL in English   thank goodness and cross referenced the seals with CR .
One was stuck tighter than a bulls butt at fly time,I had to pop it loose with a grease gun .The cylinder looks nearly  new and rings are stuck which might take a torch to pop them loose .It's in a bucket full of kerosene at the moment
The first will be a good lower end I found with the cylinder and piston from the one that stuck one .The one I have running will be the crankcase of the stuck one with good parts from the runner plus new rings and seals of course .The runner is a dog,I can out run it with a souped up Stihl 038 Magnum .Something wrong with that 72 cc up against 99 cc. I do fairly well with modifications but not that good . ;D

The saga goes on but I'm learning a lot about this model .For example it seems they  use two types of coils .A one piece and a thyrister trigger type .Both are next impossible to find .They both use two different mounts and as nearly as I can tell the later one piece was used on the McCulloch model .That one I know works because I had it on a running model ,not sure about the two piece unit but I will in a day or two.
The one piece is a typical two pole coil but none I have fit  the mounting bracket .If I have a failure I might try a 372 Husky coil which is cheap for an after market coil .I certainly do not want a concrete saw coil which limits the speed to under 6,000 RPM's .Good heavens I've got 60 year old gear drives that will run nearly that fast.These things are  99 cc,I want these things to run like the wind not a snail .
