    I found a 42cc Craftsman saw with a 18" bar on craigslist for free. The saw fires right up but it doesn't oil the chain. So I ordered a oil pump from sears and will be putting this saw back together. I figured that this would make a decent limber or a loaner for a neighbor.

    Congrats!

    My brother has one of those. He only cuts around his yard and neighborhood so it's perfect for him. His has a lot of vibrations but I noticed that the newer version of the Craftsman 42cc has springs.

    It looks just like a red Poulon
    I'll post some pics when I get it all put back together and cleaned up.

    And just like that I now have 4 chainsaws. Oh the madness !!!
