X2, good job!
I wish I had the time and patience that you have when I did my work saw restorations. 
But I am taking my time on one though. ;D

If I were making my living with this saw, there wouldn't be a thread on this process. I would have buttoned it up and got to work already. I'm also waiting on some other things to happen/materialize before I really go to work with this saw. Day jobs...

That thing looks beastly. Care to elaborate a bit?

I built it 35 years ago, Yamaha YZ 125 motorcycle engine with a 42mm snowmobile carb.
Putting out 40hp+ at the crank .

Totally rebuilding it to right hand drive and get it down to the weight of a Husqvarna 3120XP making it still competitive today in modern times.

So, your aim was to simply make a tree disappear in a cloud of sawdust?  ;D
J/K, you should post this in the diesels & such thread. I think motorcycle engines definitely qualify as alternative power....

Motorcycle engines have powered the earliest 2 man chainsaws.
Danarm used a Villiers 250 cc motorcycle engine.
Even a 1938 Harley Davidson V twin 1200 cc on a Dolmar transmission in Sweden.

The engine was running great but what looks like old scratcher chain they were running needed some work to get it to feed right.
I'd love to see more history on that saw if I could read Swedish.
