    I thought i was going to start a rebuild thread.... Got the first of a few saws. I had another thread started on rebuilding but this one does not need it!

    Its a 445, he thought i guess that it was a 142 is why i posted yesterday about that saw. Said he will bring me all the saws that he does not need for parts.

    Told me it may have a carb issue, need rebuild or something. That you have to "maybe" feather the throttle to get it up to speed. The gas cap had a hunk out of the rim of it. I took it off, and looked like water in there but not gas??? smelled it and not much gas odor. I turned it over and poured the fuel out or water i should say. Filled with fresh gas and it fired right up, no carb problem whatso ever. The gas cap leaked which is why the water was in there im sure as it was filling up as the saw rode in a truck till put in the shop to sit. Runs fine idle/WOT, will cut in the small log i cut and will take a fast throttle grab return to idle and all. He said well maybe it idles up ???

    So i have a running 445 now that needs a gas cap.

    Doubt i will get this lucky on the next one but who cares.

    These guys dont have time to fool with stuff, esp with the guys that they hire. If it dont run and stay running they will destroy it trying to "fix" it or just not use um. Way cheaper for production to run a flawless saw and they cant have down time.
