Thanks 8)

The piston and cylinder are perfect, and compression is good. The spark isn't the greatest but it's there. There was a lot of saw cake build up. It's going to need fuel lines, filters, and carb kit.

I checked the spark in low light and it's bluish white. I used my Maglite Solitaire to light up the inside of the cylinder and not a single hair scratch. Will most likely have to decarbonize the cylinder because there's quite a bit of carbon build up on the exhaust port. I'm positive she will run again.

You did well.  I like the unusual combination of tools on the counter with the saw;  Stanley socket set, parts scrubbing brush, spatula.............and 1911.8)

What's very interesting to me is the kill switch on that saw.  It's a 38cc/2.3ci variant (going by the recoil decal).......................and yet it has a sliding switch.  The sliding switch is the earlier style.  AFAIK we've always associated that switch style with the 34cc/2.1ci variants.  That's the first 2.3ci XXV series saw I've seen with the sliding switch. 

Every 2.3ci XXV series saw I've seen has had the toggle switch (which is the later style kill switch on these saws).  There were some 2.1ci saws with the toggle switch as well.  I have a red Craftsman 2.1A with the toggle...

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.

Thank you. Isn't the saw on the left a 1.9 AKA Poulan 20?

I live on my own so I can get away with bad house keeping. I still need to buy a couple of cans of PC duster and blow the saw cake out of it. I believe this saw to have a manual oiler only.

This saw also has screw holes for a bucking spike.

Yes that saw is a Craftsman red Poulan XX-D.

As far I know, all the saws in this series have those holes....................at least all the examples I own (and that's a few..................they multiply) have those holes.

I like XXV series Poulans.  These are just a few of mine (along with my Craftsman 5.2 branded Poulan 5200).....
