If my memory serves me correctly the 670 introduced in 1986 and the 625 in '87.
Making a living with a saw since age 16.

I picked up a lightly used 625 from a farmer that moved to town for 120.00 a couple monthes ago! I put a new oregon clutch hub and carlton chain on her ! All I can say is it doesnt bog down in red oak! I Love my eco timberwolf but Think The old 625 has it beat! This Is a great old saw in my book!   I am partial to Jonsereds though! My first saw a 450 in earlly 80s has cut tons of firewood and still reliable as day I bought it!

I just picked what I believe is a 630. The plate with serial number and model is scratched up and canít make out the model #.  Dates to 1984. Was sitting in a friends shop for many many years and was considered a non running saw. Put in new gas and spark plug and the thing runs, idles and throttles up nicely.

It's in real nice condition overall, but a bit heavy, so undecided what to do with it.

Give it a tune up and keep it?  Will the seals need replacing after sitting so long?  I do have a carb kit for it, or is putting it in the ultrasonic cleaner good enough?

I would keep that 630 if I was you ! I have never heard of ultrasonic cleaner being used on carbs! I dissasemble and clean! My 625 doesnt feel any heavier than my eco 590 timberwolf! Great firewood saws!

The ultra sonic cleaner is the best for carbs, if that doesn't work time to replace it. The carb has to come apart for it's bath so why not put an inexpensive kit in while you are at it. Diaphragms harden over time and the needle is likely worn.

I like the Jonsered 630. I used ultrasonic cleaner before on other tools but never used on carbs. I will try it soon.

well maybe ultasonic could be but it wasnt described as taken aprtJets remover screens etc! I suppose it could be I disassembe complete and use carb spray and compressed air! Old school I guess! . Carb kit while apart yes they are cheap! I wonder at the quality of allot of the aftermarket crap out there these days! OEM Jonsereds Carb kits for old saws can be hard to find! Great old saws I love all of mine

I once owned a 625 II but I don't think it was ever as good as the 630. Mine went for parts after sliding out the door of the forwarder and ended up running it over!
