CCC Chainsaw Conservation Components - DefinitiveDave
« on: January 08, 2015, 01:37:36 pm »
Hey guys I am new here.  I guess a quick bio with a few candid nudes may be in order so here goes.

I own an upscale landscape firm in central Ohio and a few years ago a good buddy straight gassed my favorite MS361.  My local Stihl dealer told nme it would be cheaper to buy a new 362 than to fix the saw so I did, but I spent a little time online and eventually got an aftermarket big bore kit on Ebay and had a local guy install it for me.  Waaaaay less than the new 362 cost me.   Reading, reading, reading, buy some tools, fix a few of my own saws, discover I really like working on saws so I decide to rebuild an 066 so I would have a big saw for the odd times I might need it.  I accidentally buy an old Stihl dealership's remaining stock and trade in saws.   I join arboristsite, become a sponsor so I can advertise my big chainsaw yardsale.   Cut4Fun sends me a message about his ohio based site, and my brain just does nothing about it, because my brain does stupid **** sometimes.  ASite gets hacked, turnout is less than half what I had expected at yardsale but still break even on the whole purchase of the shop in one afternoon.  Hmmmmm... I like saws more now.  Start selling saws n parts on Ebay, locate through heavy research a few good overseas vendors, buy small orders at first to check things our then larger orders to the point I am spending three times what the store cost every month on parts.  more learning and selling, trading, etc.  My son decides college is a waste of time, so he starts selling parts on Ebay, we do real well, he works a few hours a day at most, makes better money than I did when I was twice his age.  crazy world.  I start posting at SawHawgz which has a little less dickish moderation and start learning what other saw guys are looking for in parts, etc.  Sell to a steady group of local guys and pro or semipro builders and plenty of hobbiest guys.  I Give ASite another shot, some wheat amongst the chaff for sure. Cut4Fun gets hold of me again and it occurs to me I should have looked into his site long ago.  So here I am.
I am a dealer for Farmertec, Meteor, Caber, Walbro, Zama, Bing, Tillotson, Oregon and my Stihl dealer likes me (or my money) enough that I can get Stihl parts for guys wh odon't have a good local dealer. Not cheaper but at least can get them what they need in a lot of cases.
so that is about the size of it
I do not have inventory of cool old stuff, but a couple of times a year I visit an old man who is a time capsule of Poulan, Homelite, Mcculloch parts and knowledge, no fax, no computer, just hundreds of drawers and shelves of NOS parts that he last inventoried and priced in the mid 1980's.  If you need some unobtanium for an old saw, put the part numbers in order and get them to me.  He does it all by hand so no jerking him around if you say you want it and he has it, it is time to pay up.  I make nothing on it, he has offered to sell to me a few times, but I just really like to work on Stihls so the rest isn't as interesting to me.

Welcome to the site.   

 If you decide to change the heading let me know to like CCC or full name etc.

Great to have a local Ohio connection to some stihl parts especially.

Hope you find it very rewarding here.  Hope you share some of that knowledge with us too.

Also what was the link to your website again?

Welcome Dave. Enjoyed my visit to your shop a couple years ago when you were having a sale. I bought a Oregon 511A. I lived out on Broad St back in the late 60's.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

Welcome to the site Dave my friend.  I'll have another list of old part #'s for you soon.  Poulan and Mac this time.  Thanks again for hooking me up with those Homelite parts, and for all the other cool stuff you've sent my way. 

I changed the title of your thread to reflect the name of your site (whether you like it or not).8)

Also put your store page and eBay store links into your first post, so folks here can see what you have to offer.  Harvested them from you sig line on SH.  I'll refrain from (once again) giving you grief about your bias towards the Stihls (for now).:D


-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.

Ok 66Mag were you with your son and trying to decide if the auto advance thingamabobber was worth a try? I had 2 grinders and a crappy memory.
My memory sucks, I honest to god keep a cheat sheet of guys I know online, cause when you meet them in real life it is a little surreal.
I barely remember duke and john and I have met them in person multiple times :)

There were two of us there. You had a GB and a Oregon grinder. I bought the Oregon 511A. Probably should have bought them both? The other guy was a friend (Carbine).  i got grand kids older than he is. He bought some patches and a hat or something from you.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

yeah yeah ok you would say things casually about saws like all the world already knew and I would stand dumbfounded and slack-jawed at the knowledge bombs:)  There were a few guys like you who I wish I had the time to sit around for hours soaking it in.  I remember Gary was like that (guido Salvage) he ran around from area to area item to item with almost a running commentary on everything his glance fell upon.
If I remembered half of what I heard in those few days I might be a little more than the half wit I am.

Your buddy was oogling a logmaster maybe??
