Be careful about bidding on something for the heck of it . . .

A couple years ago there was a reasonable Husqvarna 365 special w 28" bar come up on Ebay with a 6 day bid. For some reason I made the first $250 bid. 6 days later, I was stuck with it.  Guy claimed it started and ran great etc. When received, it was dry as a bone and looked like it hadn't been touched in a few years.

It appeared to have been a tree service ground saw? In other words, used professionally by a none owner.  Luckily, the 365 Special started right up but the metering valve diaphragm was stiff. After replacing the diaphragms, I enjoyed using it with a 20" bar for about a year and checked the compression which turned out to be only 120 pounds. But it stihl starts and cuts good. The piston is smooth. One of these days I'll make it a 372?

There's nothing wrong with the Oregon 28" bar/chain but I have not got around to needing it. Maybe on one of my 7900's?
