Helping a friend clean out his dad’s garage and came across an old chainsaw collecting dust on a shelf. It appeared intact and still turned over with good compression.
The layer of chain oil and sawdust had preserved the saw and it looked much better after it had a bath. Given it had no spark, I am assuming that is why it was not used recently. The old gas had evaporated and varnished the inside tank…so thick it peeled off in a sheet.
I replaced the fuel lines and upgraded the points with an electronic ignition. Adding a dog spike completed the initial restoration.
