Skill branded Poulan S25-CVA.  Good saw.  I see that one has a 'custom' manual oiler button.  I must be getting a handle on CAD (finally).  I'm able to resist this one.  Got enough S25-CVA's already.....

And how many would that be?

Lessee.......

-One runner S25-CVA  in the 'working stable' (limbed a 100' or so tall redwood with it on Saturday after my 272XP threw a chain).  It's a strong dependable little saw after a fuel system rehab and crank seal replacement.

-One 'almost runner' S25-CVA that needs an AV mount, fuel system rehab, and crank seals.

-One really nice Craftsman red S25-CVA that's making it's way to me from Canada.  Just needs a fuel system rehab and seals.

-One cosmetically cherry S25-CVA with a scored piston and a cylinder that may clean up.  Waiting for its turn on the bench.

-One somewhat stripped parts S25-CVA with a roached P/C.

That's just the CVA models.  Got a few 'non-AV' 25DA and S25DA versions too.

-One Craftsman red 25DA waiting it's turn on the bench.  Got a good used P/C and some NOS rings for it.  After swapping those in and doing the usual fuel system rehab and crank seal replacement, it'll be good to go.

-One yellow/black Poulan Pro badged S25DA.  Cherry P/C.  Waiting on cleaning (it's filthy), fuel system rehab, and seals.

-Another dirty PP branded S25DA with a good P/C, but missing some parts.  May pull the P/C and ignition for the green S25-CVA with the scored piston.

-Another dirty PP branded S25DA (all three came from the same source) that's missing parts.  Looks like the P/C WERE cherry until some dipshit put a BOLT into the exhaust port to act as a piston stop.  Two large 'threaded' bolt shaped half-circle indentations in the piston crown.  Top ring's buggered.  Cylinder may or may not be damaged...

And then there's the Micros (and Micro 'relatives').  That's another (growing) list......

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.
