I noticed when I was dumping fuel on this saw today. It seemed dyed dark.  So I ask what ratio you running. He said the owners manual said 25:1. 

I told him I only run 32:1 and would think he could run todays oils at  40:1 no problem.


I was digging on Acres site and it says this.  FUEL OIL RATIO:50:1 with Partner Oil /   otherwise 25:1

So did this saw back in 1980 say to use it at 50:1  and he just went with the 25:1 by misreading?

I run 40:1 in mine with no problems.
I noticed most saw manufactures these days recommend 50:1  mix when using their brand of oil and 40:1 when using other 2 stroke oils.

I had also found a crack in the carb to cylinder adapter, but I assume you did  pressure test as you mention that seals aren't the problem.

That really means 50:1 with any high quality mix oil, as you surely know!

I wouldn't hesitate to run 50:1 Aspen in it, for sure.

Btw, the S65 and F65 were rated at a little less power than the earlier 65cc Pro Partners, like the R20 and R420 - 3.8 hp vs. 4.0 hp.

I believe the difference was caused by open vs. closed porting.....

I am wondering why this shows R16 chassis on the partner f65 instead of what you have above. I dont know the older R partners and barely the F and S etc  http://www.acresinternet.com/cscc.nsf/ed1d619968136da688256af40002b8f7/37310f5b39cba58688256afd004eac0f?OpenDocument

Simply because the 55-70cc Partner saws still were based on the R16 chassis (with or without AV) - the last generation being the P7000, 650 and 550.

Owner lowered the price to $15 and looks like somebody finally got it.  Good deal.

I went ahead and bought this Partner S65 I worked on in 2013 of the oringal owner bought in 1985. He stated the oiler wasnt working when he went to use it this year.

Anyone know any info on what to check on these oilers. I remember it being odd area or different.

I went ahead and picked up that 1 owner Partner S65 today. Guy bought it new Nov 1, 1985 for $399.99.   Have receipt, warranty cards and all the books with the big IPL page.
I didnt want or need the saw but figure I will check it out and pass it onto someone that will want it.
