    Oh my...........................::-)

    Back then McCullloch hadnt yet perfected their smaller saws with the 'all-position' carburetor, larger saws wouldnt run properly when used in felling position.So gear drive saws had that transmission on a swivel so it could be used either way.

    My Homelite is set up with a carburetor on a swivel to achieve the same thing.

    I'm half tempted to buy it....

    Wow! I just seen on the American Restoration show they rebuilt one of these. Chrome bar and the works! It was painted red which was confusing as I thought those old saws were all yellow?

    What do you think Dennis, you on one end me on the other and we could clear that ash of yours in no time! :D
