    I have a Crafstman 16" chainsaw that was made in 1985, I has only been used 2 or three times-really.A look at the chain and clutch will verify this. It was given to me after being in a garage for many years in its case. I put a fuel line and filter on it, and it ran and cut perfectly, now it stalls on occasion, maybe it needs a carb cleaning or rebuild of carb).What can I expect to get for it?

    Put some fresh tanks of fuel through it and see if it runs better. Should have no problem getting 45-50 on cl. Ive been getting tons of calls on $50 saws this weekend. Might get more after a storm or during prime woodcutting times. Though sears sells them for 125 now so 75 is probably the max.

    Maybe $50
    Depends on the buyer. Not sure I'd give that much for my old 14" craftsman.
    Sat so long the fuel line rotted, cheap fix though.
    Gotta picture of it?
