GRRR, why the heck do you fill out the sender contact info if the shipper isn't going to use it, so many rules & crap now days, I wished I could find better deals local.  I did get a Makita 520i runner with 3 chains for $40.

That was a heck of a deal.

Received today.   Check another search, find, landed off my list.

Issue I was warned about was it was spit and sputtering not running right last time used.    I found the impulse line was run wrong and went up beside intake bolt head and over intake boot across to winter plug with hole put in it to run it through.  I found the impulse line was pinched under intake bolt it was run beside. Pulled till it tore out and ran new impulse line.

Filled up. Wrong size fuel line so it leaks around tank. Will fix this when I get back from my fishing trip.

Noticed no bar tensioner. So I looked closer. Someone tried a redneck fix under tensioner area.
So I filled up the bar oil tank. She still leaks, so I will fix that when I get back.

Other wise saw looks in great condition.

Box that USPS wouldnt ship and then put box in bigger box and all was OK.

Good score Kevin.  That bar oil leak looks familiar.  Doubt he cleaned things up enough before gooping the JB in there.  Also looks like he didn't use enough JB, and didn't put much effort into applying it....

I am surprised that so many of these saws have been busted in that area.  Unlike with a cover mounted tensioner....................these would be VERY difficult to put together with the tensioner not properly engaged in the bar.  It's all right there in front of you before you put the cover on and cinch down the bar nuts.  You gotta work hard to mess these up.  Obviously there are guys out there capable of such a screw up however........... :-\
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

I seen quite a few of those myself.   Some I welded up and on my 3500 I did the JB weld because it was just **** and not a hole in it.   Actually the JB weld seems to do very well.

Well she is paid for now.  Past owner wanted me to deduct all I had to do to it and found wrong. But I told them I looked at it as I was buying it as is where is as long as piston cylinder was good.

Little more then I like having in a 60cc, but figure $150 isnt to bad for a rarer saw.
