Little helpful suggestion if I may Don, and you may already be doing it. A stripping/sorting operation like that works out better in the long run if some boxing/labeling is done with it. At least by model. So many times years ago I'd pick up a part and be thinking, "I knew what this was when I set it here."  ???
Excellent advice, thanks. I do keep track in that regard. I keep items sorted and labeled either in containers or good zip lock bags and together by model in a box. Been down that road a few times with "I'll remember this"

Growing up in the Midwest, on a farm that raised a fare amount of corn, I find your statement totally ignorant and uncalled for.
You're only defending Al, who has continually taken cheap shots at west coast fallers(me) and you never do a thing to warn him. You know what they say about living in glass houses and casting stones....

I was raised in MO and even had a farm there in the late 80's/90's.

The other thing Don, is if you have the room is to store the carcasses without stripping them. Sounds good in theory, but once the start building up, ya gotta thin them out.

Depends on the saw too. On some chassis, like 372's and Jonny 670's, I can pick up every single screw and know exactly where it goes. Something like an L65, I have to label everything.  :laugh:

 I think my problem is related to the starter drum perhaps turning off center ,running eccentric which will bind them up .The saw has been  doctored on a little bit too .Blows around 180- 185 PSI static with a vee stack and a K and N filter .It was a west coaster from some island off Washington state .Found it on one of the forums years ago --cheap .

For sure but I donít have the room at present to store them all as is. Some are incomplete organ donors that have just a few good parts so itís best to strip them out and part ways with the rest. Itís surprising what an old grime covered saw has to offer at times.
Stripping and cleaning I can box and label things and Have that step looked after when I start the fun part putting some together. Looks good on paper😀

It's whatever a person is used to .I know next to nothing about J-reds but on a 10 series McCulloch or a 200T Stihl I can almost do it blind folded .On the later it's hard to say how many I've worked on mostly seal and bearing changes which is what killed most of them .That's an age old thing of an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure because given enough run time that's where a failure will happen .

A photo is golden as well and put in a file under saw model. Lots of components I take a photo of before disassembly or lay parts out in order of assembly and get a photo. The parts go in a zip lock with the fasteners for them as well. The days of trying to remember are long gone!

Picked this up a couple weeks ago. Fiddlin with it today and cleaning it up. Looks pretty nice! Excellent compression and spark. Needs a bit of fuel line work. Should be a good one. Not a Husky but Iím partial to a few Homelites😀.

Makes my fingers and hands numb just lookin' at it.  ;D  Great saws with just over a tad bit of vibration transferred to the operator.  :D

That saw brings back memories. Dad bought one new when I was about 16. Loved it. Also ran it on a chainsaw mill. Didn't know any better about the noise, weight or vibration either. That plus a few others probably added to the need for carpal tunnel surgery in both hands. I remember the 922 eating fuel lines and a poor air filter system. Also pressurized the fuel tank.
Gas looked to be boiling when refueling.

The one and only time I've seen boiled gas was in the Colorado rocky mountains in 1974 deer hunting .Did it on my Poulan S25 DA and a Pioneer of the same size .Cutting camp wood elevation between 8-9000 feet .Had to lean out the carb at that elevation .

Oh, your gonna have fun with that 922. That chassis is a classic, and my favorite Homelite series. Real fun saws to run, and they sound great too.

Yeah they vibrate, but not a big deal unless your looking at all day use. To just run a tank or 2 through it and cut a pickup load of firewood will be fun. You won't notice the vibes as much as you'll notice the torque.  :)

I picked one off a scrap pile and got it to bark, it sure is noisy and heavy. Haven't cut with it, I need to find the correct bar.

I can relate to the vibration for sure. I bought a Super XL130 back in 78 It was a great saw. Fingers would be numb after running it at times. That saw would pressurize the tank as well and gas would be boiling inside. Had to be careful removing the gas cap.

I cut alot of wood with that saw, cut and sold firewood for a couple of years with it as well. Lots of jam for 58cc.

Interesting detail regarding that item/baffle in the jungle muffler. I took a couple 380 mufflers apart and they have exactly the same piece in them except if you look at the comparing photos they have the back of it opened up with holes as well as the two on each side. Interesting the jungle muffler on the 2100 had only the sides done. I wonder if it missed part of the process or something. Seems odd to me. They are exactly the same size just more holes in the 380CD ones, hmmm.
