    I picked up a very nice Husky 2100CD for $100 the other day.

    It runs, the start/stop switch is busted, and the chain break doesn't operate unless you push a little lever just above the chain cover down.

    I really like the saw and plan to fix it up.

    I have been considering keeping it but after some looking around, spare parts seem to be few and far between.

    I will use this thread as a rebuild thread but would love it if folks would post up their opinions, secret parts sources, pictures, whatever........ just all things 2100!

    I've noticed that parts are starting to come out of the woodwork since the 2100 series has gained some value recently, but the ignition components are still somewhat tough to come by. The 2100/2101 remain one of the best saws ever produced, right up there with the Mac SP-125 and the Stihl 064/066.

    Its the first one I have ever seen in Australia, which is why I am thinking of keeping it.
    It sure would look good with a 36" bar on it!

    As per usual JJ pretty much nailed in his post. Well worth the effort/cost to return such a saw to a serviceable standard. There is a similar 2101xp on G-tree for $1100! Not that its 'real' value is $1100 but they have such a reputation that they command descent dollars. A 394/395 would be more sensible day to day work saw with better parts options/availibiliy. But make no mistake, the 2100 series was the pro fallers choice in its day. A chit ton of awsomeness for a hundred bucks!

    It wouldn't be a day to day worker, more like a now and then long bar saw.

    I like it, it looks good, it feels good in your hands and it sounds fantastic!
    It has a real pop and bang to the exhaust note.

    I like the position of the aux oiler!
    I was thinking of keeping the 076 I am rebuilding but I don't like the bar position and the aux oiler on the front tank of the saw meaning you have to let go with one of your hands and put it down in harms way to pump it.

    Your like me when it comes to trading saws...... ya like em too much and wanna keep them all. Haha lol. You need to change tactics & buy popular models that you would not want to keep Ms250's, 170's, husky ranchers and stuff. You got to be strong minded trading 2100's stay focussed and don't get to attached. Treat them as blocks of metal worth $$.

    ya nailed it.!! you are collecting rare beasts that may not flip well for a great deal of profit, but are great muscle saws of the past era's. that's what i like about them.. but as mentioned.. the 35 to 60cc range is where the bulk of the saws are and easy to flip.

    I totally agree with JJ, The 2100 and 2101 are great saws. They seem to be
    coming out of the wood work over the last couple years as well as parts. I
    have one 2100 and of all the 100cc saws i have ran the 2100 is one cutting
    saw.

    The 2100 was way ahead of it's time. No wonder every faller on the west coast of British Columbia had one in the 80's.

    Yours is a pretty nice example. You'll love it over an 075/076!

    I started tearing it down this afternoon
    It has 140 psi, and the inside of the motor looks fantastic from the exhaust port. TICK

    Aux oiler works great squirting oil everywhere with each push. TICK

    Carb and filter mounting point will make fitting a V stack and pod filter a breeze. TICK

    The muffler is in great Shape. TICK
    It will however need some modification to increase fuel/air volume flow.

    This is not conducive to power making in a 99cc saw

    I wonder how much power was lost in that muffler? For an older saw it does look restrictive.

    You have to go with the 2101xp muffler.

    I am thinking a lot.

    The issue with removing the spark screen is the muffler will be open to let stuff in, and fitting a less restrictive screen is difficult

    You can either find a stock muffler with the front opening like this... s-l225.jpg

    or open it up yourself and lay a screen under the deflector you use.
