Title: McCulloch BP-1 Chainsaws
Post by: Revpop on April 13, 2016, 12:45:00 pm
New to the forum, I have had this McCulloch BP-1 chainsaw and parts power head for a while now that I inherited from a neighbor about 15 years ago.  There is very little to go on so I never did tear into for fear of ruining something, or getting things torn down then losing parts along the way.  So I am getting to a point of where I need to decide:

1. Attempt to fix them up into one good saw that is a runner.
2. Leave it alone for another 15 years in my garage.
3. Move them along to a worthy BP-1 enthusiast.

These are previously undocumented "barn find" artifacts that to my knowledge nobody else has seen, at least on the internet.

I've seen three but nary a one ran. I've got the IPL and trouble shooting on micro film but have no way to put it in a usable format .About the only two that might are Mc Bob and possibly Larry Steiner .
