titan 57 the saw the legend
« on: September 24, 2011, 09:44:21 am »
found this on kijiji a week or so ago :) used to work on them allllll the time ;D








the complete saw has a good gouge out of the front of the piston but i have 2 other topends that are basicly like new to use, plus an alomst complete other engine/saw. no bother ;) i have a complete titan 57 inventory at my disposal if i ever need parts
not to shabby for a 50 note. imo.
when I grow up, i wanna be an adult.

That piston doesn't look that bad to me . I've seen a lot worse and they worked fine .

Say what's that blue and orange button looking thing ? I certainly don't have any like that on the Titan 70 which is only one of that series I own .

Well depends on the saw model I suppose .The impulse operated  oil pumps on the 10 series and large reed valves were about the best ever built .The ones on the mini macs were about the worst .Then too compairing a mini Mac to an SP 125 would be like compairing a Yugo to a Cadillac .

I've never seen much less worked on a Titan 57 .I would have thought it was patterened after or like the Titan 70 but that evidently isn't the entire story . .Actually what I know about Italian made Macs is about thimble full if all knowledge of same would fill the Atlantic ocean ,I'm just dumb about them .

oh don't get me wrong about the oilers in them there macs ;D they have worked flawlesly for years. only after a million cords of wood did they start to show a few problems. the one main sticking point of them though is the fact they had to be re-installed absolutly positivley exactly 100% correct to work properly if you had them out. whereas any gear driven pump will work so long as the teeth don't get chewed or plugged up. the pulse style pumps are quite a bit more finiky to work with. especially with the age thing coming into play. :) even nos parts are hit and miss to be working without a little quality time getting the check valves moving and seating. they did prime better than the gear pumpers.
the titan 70 was a good saw for it's size. but thats about it, only good. there were better saws out in that size that would out do it stock for stock.
the 57 was a real runner back in the '90's in the 55-60cc class. when you could keep them running. their only downfall (and reliability issue) was the fuel/impulse and oil lines would fall apart after a month and they would burn them selves up, and quickly. if you were lucky enough to save it before that, and changed out the lines, it would last as long as any other saw out. and out run some of the bigger ones.
i remember when we got the first batch of jonny 670 champs in. awsome saw! really strong and fast. the titan 57 would cut right beside them no problemo, until you put something bigger than the 20" (same chain, same wood). then the 670 would be all over the mcculloch like a fat kid on a twinky.
even by todays standards, the titan 57 is still competative for weight and power.
on a side note: the titan 50 was a turd.

well, here she is allllllllllll done and running great! 8)




t'was totaly stripped down except for splitting the case, new crank seals, fuel/impulse/oil lines, new carb (yes, new carb ;)i had one),plug, and bar. i didn't have a correct chain (getting one on tuesday) but the cm chain that's now on it works pretty good for semi chisel.
she runs gooood! very good. just like a new saw. forgot how much i liked these. this one just might be a keeper.
VROOOM! VROOOOOM! VROOOOOOM! ;D
