Jonsereds 70E rescued!
« on: June 24, 2014, 10:24:07 PM »
Today I was in the middle of a residential tree removal job when a old logger friend stopped by and yelled to me... "Willard I found something at the garbage dump that will bring back some memories".

He brings out this Jonsereds 70E from the late 1970s that was missing a air filter, filter top cover and a chain brake lever but other wise in very nice shape. Who ever owned it had good taste and out fitted it with a Tsumura bar and Stihl semi chisel chain. Bar looks brand new with just some rust, chain is brand new.
Good compression but that's as far as I got with it, probably a burnt out electronic ignition module. Anyways my buddy gave it to me.............. and now I have the urge to start collecting and fixing vintage saws :D

No time at the moment but will look into it soon.  It may never be a runner from the corrosion I saw inside the fuel tank. Would mean a total break down which would mean new gaskets , bearings etc.
If I could find the Nordfeller inflatable felling wedge accessory I would mount it on this saw seeing it was designed as an option for the Jonsered 70E.......I would then have a interesting conversation piece for a display.

No I spent about 20 minutes with some WD40 , some emery cloth and a rag before I took the pictures.

Before you get too deep into it make sure it has spark. The ignition parts are NLA and hard to find. That was a later one I believe as it has a chain brake. My Dads was an 81 I believe and had no brake. Sawtroll is an encyclopedia on these.

Have you verified that it actually is corrotion, and not just ramains of the "paint" that they used inside the tank?

OH my the memories, I want to say the first saw my dad taugh me on was a 70e; and he made me limb trees with it.  Needless to say, after the first hour my arms and butt were dragging, but I loved it. Ahhh, to be young again.

 8) I have a 70E that came new without a brake. I added the brake shortly after purchase.
Saw sat unused for around 10 years, until I needed a longer bar!
Took it into the dealer, and he gave it a $75.00 tume up.
It is back on the front line, as good as ever!  8)

JohnG28, Your 90 looks to be in beautiful shape. Yes I'm definitely on the lookout for a Jonsereds 90 too .....along with a 621, 80, 910 and a 111
:D

Sawtroll, yes the inside ceiling or roof of the fuel tank is corroded so bad the paint is just a scaly gray coating. Only that part of the tank though, weird.

Thanks to the other guys  for your comments

Thanks, I got you in mind if I decide not to keep it HT! Got it over the winter and haven't played with it much. Starts right up too. Too bad that 70E won't be a runner again.  :(

I was just talking to my buddy who found  the 70E at the dump. He said  he grabbed the saw seconds before the dump dozer pushed everything up into the pit,  but he wasn't quick enough to grab a box sitting along side it , what he said was full of red colored parts.

My brother found a good condition 2 man Mall a few years back at his towns garbage dump.

Thanks John, I'm definitely interested in the 90 if you decide to part with it.
I may get the 70 running but would be a good project for next winter off season. Very busy with treework at the moment.
