    I have two of these saws.

    One is an older model with, all red except some white on the side, the serial tag is gone so I can't say exactly how old it is.. The other is newer, has the black top and the plastic recoil cover. The second saw is more or less like new. It however had straight gas run through it and the piston and cylinder are toast (probably why it's like new).

    The older saw isn't in terrible shape but it's going to need a lot of little things, fuel lines, bar, chain etc.

    So I was thinking about transplanting the older but sound engine into the newer saw.

    Does this sound like a sound plan? It looks like this saws are pretty common and running examples can be had for as little as 50 bucks so I don't want to invest to much into it.

    I haven't worked on saw before but I know my way around an engine. Do I need any special tools? Just go for it?

    Swapping to models out to make one may work may not work. I would just do the older one fuel lines fuel filter see how it runs. Then get the new bar and chain. Making a Frankinstien could rack up cash quick.
