    Nice looking specimen. I picked up a really clean, and nice running C5-G for @Eccentric about five years ago, for $60.

    The one I sent Aaron was free to him. Apparently the G version was pretty rare. Who knew?

    Yes, they are convertible. However, the last gear assembly unit I saw for this series went for $250.

    Don’t know how much suckage this deserves but I’m pumped for only giving $40. Needs a piston, muffler recoil and flywheel. Easy stuff, solid builder.

    Just got this out of the scrap dumpster. 52" 1488 hours stuck exhaust valve bent push rod and main seal leaks. Not too shabby for free and they even let me use the forklift! I now have the wheels back on it. [​IMG][​IMG]

    That 254 looks good you do not often see them with the chain brake and a top cover. Those are the hard parts to come by for this saw. If you need a cheap muffler option look at the one hutzl has for the 55.
