    Seriously considering it! Made an offer on it pending receipt of pictures of the bottom of the saw. Don't want to be buying white rust but from experience of buying some other old Jonsereds magnesium recently, they don't appear to suffer in the way some other saws do. Apparently this one runs.

    Mine had old fuel left in the tank for years. The inside lower half of the fuel tank has all the paint peeled off.
    Will take a bit of cleaning to get it right.

    70E now purchased for less than half the original asking price!:beer-toast1:

    It joins two Jonsereds 80 saws, a 621, a dead 52E, and two Jonsereds Raket XGs. All were bought as non-runners/sources of spare parts and I have one of the 80s and the 621 running but have yet to turn anything other than an airline and my mind to the others due to a general lack of free time... I spotted the first of these in a local auction and left a (very) cheeky bid with the auctioneer and "unfortunately", my bid won and I had to collect the saw! The second 80 and both XGs were mis described and hidden in the background of bulk Lots. I have less than the price of one of the blue Holtzforma 660s in all these saws.

    Unfortunately there was only one good bar (24" hardnose) between all the saws listed above but most of the chains are good/recoverable and I have managed to source a couple of new bars. I'll probably make up a few adapters to allow me to run Stihl bars on these saws. In time I'll get one of the XGs running with the 24" hardnose bar and .404 semi chisel chain. I'll stick with 3/8 on the others.

    Willard, I spotted a 70E top cover listed on the Chainsawr website ($10USD).

    As an aside, how much longitudinal play is acceptable in a roller nose bar? The Rivets mounting the roller nose to the bar itself are solid and the play is in the roller nose itself.​

    70e or 66e
    Pull the muffler to know for sure. 66e much less common (and more valuable?)

    Thanks Woods Works that is a really useful resource. The unfortunate thing is that chart has me thinking about other saws now!
    Once I have the saw in hand, I might not need to pull the muffler to check the number of piston rings... there is a bit of a hole in the face of it that may prove to be an adequate "window"!

    Thanks Teemore, I'll look into that 70 cover.
    Those rollers go along time when loosened up. If it's not broke use it, every tank of fuel pump some grease into the roller if it has a grease hole to pump into.

    Interesting the 70E has one ring, I didn't know that.
    It should make some high rpm and power.

    My 920 that I found in a barn. A carb job, fuel lines and a bar/ chain purchase and she works. Not pretty but strong. Really been nice having the big saw around after hurricane Michael with these big oaks round here. Side note, this is one of the most touchy carbs I've ever tuned granted I havent tuned a crazy amount of em. However this one goes from right to wrong in the width of a screwdriver blade. Anyone else experience that? 20181119_162459.jpg

    Never had that problem with mine back in the early '80s. I know the HS carb on it worked best at 1 1/4 turn out on L and 3/4 turn on H.
    Good smooth powerhouse. Fond memories. Looks like it only cut softwood.

    Know nothing of the saws history... forgive my ignorance but why do you saw it only cut soft wood?

    Well either someone once painted the sprocket cover black or ran canola for bar oil, or is covered with petrified tree sap.
