    Most likely an improper avgas mix that was low or missing ethylene dibromide, which is an additive that combats lead fouling. Typically airports will sell low grade or off grade fuel for cheap with the stipulation for non-aviation use.

    Higher octane fuel burns slower. Only makes more power with higher compressions.

    Trying to redenck save the damaged 025 case for the owner. Couple folks in the chainsaw repair group told me they have had success doing this. Then case replacement wasnt needed.
    So thought I would share here.

    Pump, case, connector, o-rings were all damaged in that area.

    Had to order everything new, drum, clutch, worm gear etc etc etc.

    Monroeton Dandy has decent E-free. Not particularly convenient to get to, but it's within range.

    A buddy of mine dairy farms, and gets bulk 'farm grade' gasoline that is non-taxed, e-free 87 octane. He's offered for me to come get a couple gallons next time I need mix, and I'm thinking I'll take him up on the offer when my current batch is out (which is soon).

    Heres a shot of some epic farm and ranch badassery.

    Turns out, the 455 had nothing more than an oil tank full of sticks and twigs and seeds keeping it from oiling. Flush the tank, clean out the lines and just need to replace the seriously roached out bar and chain and it's ready to rumble!

    Order a new pickup from Husqvarna, it's been redesigned and it won't do that again. ;)

    Latest on the work bench, Dolmar CC, is in faily good shape, needs a new recoil spring before I go any further, piston/cylinder look good.
    Not many of the CC model around with the rear AV on the handle. 20181006_134504.jpg 20181006_134430.jpg 20181006_134439.jpg

    Yes I was pleasantly surprised by its condition,not bad for a 50+ yr old saw, and with some lube into the rings the compression was great.

    Time will tell if this redneck trick works that I was told about. Still waiting on 1 part.

    Test fitting old pump etc and all seems good.

    My son and I got our 371xp out this morning to cut firewood in preparation for winter and it started acting funny, acting like it was running out of fuel. Grabbed another saw to cut with. So far I checked the tank vent (all good) fuel filter (all good) I'm wondering if it sat long enough this summer for the carb to get gummy or something because it's not really acting like it wants to take adjusting to well
