McCulloch timber bear chainsaw
« on: April 24, 2005, 01:50:13 pm »
I know, I know, it's a McCulloch.  I picked this saw up yesterday for free. It looks to be in nice shape with a 20 inch bar.  It's a project saw.  Unfortunately I can't find any information about this saw.  Is there a site that has model numbers to tell you what year or how big the motor is?
model number is 60013414
serial number is 11-027462
Anyone got one or had one and want to comment on it?  Is it a turd or a gem?  Yeah, probably a turd, but it's free and  "if it's free it's for me" !!!!

ehp,  I guess you're saying it is underpowered???  Probably not a good idea to put a longer bar on it?  I'm gonna bring it in to work tomorrow to get it running  (when we don't have airplanes to fix we can do home projects if the place is all clean and ready to go).  I'll have to find a big log to try it out on.  Since you've run one, can you tell me if the kill switch has 3 positions or 2.  This one has 3 positions and I think that is probably part of the problem.  Seems to me that there should only be 2  (on and off).  I've never seen it before, maybe someone replaced it with the wrong switch or something.

Hmmm, where to begin.  I did the usual disassembly for cleaning and inspecting everything (all the plastic crap and covers.  First thing I found was the fuel line not hooked up and kinked.  Took everything apart and cleaned entire saw.  Dried and put everything back on the saw and took her out for a test run.  Had to use the old gas down the carb trick.  It would fire but not stay running.  Took it back in and took the carb apart to check everything.  Everything looked fine and clean except the needle wouldn't move very well.  I pulled it out, wiped it down real good and put it all back together.  Put some more gas down the carb and she fired right up.  I let it run for a minute and shut it down to put the bar and chain on it.  Got everything set up properly and took it back out.  One pull and it was up and running.  Adjusted the high speed.  It seemed like it was only turning about half what it should have been.  I had to turn the idle down just a hair and I was in business.  Now I just need to get it sharpened up tomorrow and find a nice size log to try it out on!!!   Not bad for a free saw.  I figure I've got no more than 3 hours into it (dragging my feet cuz there's nothing else to do) and I got paid while doing it.  Can't beat that...

Well, it is something to be proud of, but don't brag about it too much, too many people feel us Govt workers are already overpaid.

but I will say, it is always nice to have a little down time and work on a home project once in a while.

You bet.  we've been working solid, coming in early, going home late since the beginning of December.  Yesterday was our first down day, today is our second and last.  We'll be busy again tomorrow.

The saws that I ran were not to much on the power level, I guess I was thinking they should of had more for the size and weight of the saw but really they are not that many cc just big on the outside

yeah, it's only 55cc'c.  It seems to run good no load, but we'll see what happens when I get it into a big log.
