I gave that thing a run today .I didn't have exactly the blade I wanted but it was all I could find in 20MM hole size .Metal cutter not masonary .

That thing went right through a cinder block like it wasn't even there justa getten it .There must be some method besides a limited coil to govern it .Yesterday with no blade at about half throttle it just quit running until I left off it. Today I could give it all it had in the cut .Not that it matters at all because it works just fine . ;D

I would say that you got a good deal then?
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 . . .

Got an old Echo pole saw with a non adjustable Walbro on it that was dropped off yesterday, since I didn't have a kit for the carb here I carefully cleaned it and reinstalled. It seems to run ok but not what I was looking for, The air cleaner housing was broke so I took a walk to the storage hut and found another, I think I will service the shafts, sharpen it, replace the plug and ship it back so they can use it, now that I have found another carb I will order a kit and rebuild it so I can swap them next week. Not a big fan of non adjust carbs.
I Try to learn something new every day

Got another McCulloch SP 125 to check out and put some gas in to see if she will fire up.  No history on this one so what ever happens it will be a surprise.

Turns out to have no spark, went in and found the flywheel to have been damaged in a previous attempt to remove it. Got it off but now it needs parts.  No real surprise there. Happy Friday!!

Some of those things used #12-24 screws holes which will strip out ,not heavy enough .I had one I think I tapped out to 5/16" 18 .That's a big ole crankshaft and a heavy duty wheel there .Takes some robust stuff to pull it off .It certainly isn't a tinker toy .

So now thinking out loud I'm not sure if a 250 flywheel would fit on  that thing or not .The 250 used the large ignition coil while the 125 c used a 10 series coil .On that I'm also not certain what the magnet spacing is or if the coils could be interchanged .
