pioneer 650
« on: April 29, 2017, 11:45:43 am »
so far:  cleaned about 20 years of crud off the 40 year old saw.  un-seized motor by soaking in marvel oil for 3 days.

do not know about these saws... taking things apart to learn.

trying to get the rust off the bar and chain with a vinegar soak for a few days to see if it works.

after 4 hours of soaking.  wiped off bar with nylon brush and paper towel.  going to let bar soak overnight.

chain is making bubbles!  hahahaha.  some sawdust is now floating on top.  i did not take it out to look at it closer.

i probably should have degreased everything before vinegar soak.

That cleaned up very nicely. I would like to find a 600 series that hasn't been beat to death, they are torque monsters.

i have never seen one before this one.  my hope is just to get it spinning.  hope you find one Roy.  they do not seem that heavy for their size and very well built.
