Well I will check for any more melted seals after work tomorrow! You got me really wondering now, if it wasn't so cold out in the garage I would be out there right now checking it all out. Hopefully get some parts ordered tomorrow night, if anything comes out of this it would be me learning a little more about the saw. I am already planning on taking the 028 apart and checking it out, I know my dad bought it around 1980 and he is terrible about maintenance! Could be interesting.
