    I got this 10-10 handed down and she’s really clean and totally complete [​IMG]

    A few months ago I did a prelim tear down and replaced the gaskets.
    I believe she help pressure and vac but don’t remember.

    She starts on the 1st pull but lacks balls in the cut.
    Became hard to tune after a few cuts.
    (Seals?Rings?Both?Tune?)
    I’m thinking about throwing up my hands on this one.

    Any recommendations ope?

    They need the same things any other saw does to run. For the age seals would be a good suspect.
    I do work on them from time to time, there's a few out there still cutting firewood year after year.

    I'd be inclined to move this to the saw forum. There are plenty of guys here that know that saw well enough to give you some excellent advice.

    (I'm not of them) LOL

    I'm not sure if he is looking for a builder or advice. @J. Loe

    Thank you gentlemen.

    I’ve been pretty backed up with work and sidejobbing and the brain is running lean. Might be time to farm this one out.

    Working on these macs isn’t my favorite thing in the world.
    Seems like you have to do a tear down to get anything apart.

    I’m wondering if it’ll benefit from a porting and if so I’d love to get her to someone else for hotrod monster ripper saw build.

    It’s a really cool saw to have.

    Thanks for the advise sir.

    I’ve got a lot on the plate right now and I think I’m trying to send out saws to get the whole fleet up and screaming.

    @Chainsaw Jim knows his way around a mac just dandy. Perhaps he would take it on!
