Made a little progress. Had to make a gasket and replace some fuel lines... got it fired. It definitely needs carb work... now I'm just waiting on the crank seals and a carb rebuild kit.

Made a custom puller so that I could remove the flywheel and clutch. Time to rewind the coil.

Good job resurrecting another 52/52e. One thing I’ve done when the cone shaped antivibe bushings on the rear handle get a little slop in them, put a few wraps of electrical tape on the tapered part..smooths the saw out some. Treemonkey ported a 52e for me several years ago and it runs surprisingly close the the 2153 he also ported but even stock they are a great saw.

Still a work in progress... mainly electrical at this point. But, these are surprisingly a nice little saw! If I find one locally, I'll probably snag it.

A little update... I handwound the secondary coil or whatever it's called... got spark back, it's a brighter spark but now it likes to flood out... the Tillotson carb rebuild kit wasn't an identical replacement... the original diaphragm didn't have a nipper on the bottom... the new one did. I cut the nipple off and got the nub as flat as I could... adjustments are needed. Its one thing after another.... mainly operator error. Lol

*49sp

Name your price. It’s clean and ran when I got it but now needs a kit. When it wa shipped to my UPS broke the dawg mount off the case. Poor packing.

You gotta give me a price man... if I gotta give a price for something thats sight unseen, doesn't run and has pieces broke off of the case I'd offer it a free home to get it off of your hands. 🤣
Idk if any of those parts would work on this early 52.

Well....A 52 is a 52....The only parts difference is when moving to a 52E then it is only the enite ign system that is different...everything else on the saw is the same early or late.
But yeah you gotta have pics at least to make a realistic offer...

I admire determination, but when it gets to handwinding the coil and still needing parts, a 52E, or any saw, isn't worth the trouble. Waitibg for needed parts to complete a project sometimes means it's best to set it down and walk away until they show up.

52's are on the rare side, as the 49sp outsold it by about 10 to 1. Performance was close, but not the price. The significance of the closed port cylinder on the 52 is over rated as usual here. I've got a few of each and they all run about the same. Few here are more into the old Jonnys than me, but I'll give Robin the edge there. @Cantdog.

Finding individual parts on old saws is best done by finding complete carcasses that you can strip yourself. Those coils rarely failed, so in most cases, they will still work on an otherwise dead saw.

Have a similar situation going on myself with a 2051 project. PTO seal is unique to that chassis, and not shared by any Huskys either. Not a popular chassis, and wasn't around that long. Sooner or later it I'll stumble on one.

You are right about the price between the 52 series and the 49SP. When I bought my original 49Sp in April 1977 the price at my closest dealer was $250.00 and the other two choices in the 49cc class was the points 52 at $275.00 and the 52E which was $300.00. I remember the salesman couldn't tell me the difference in any of them other than the 52E had electrinic ign. I was 23 and all the coin I had for a new saw was from my income tax refund so I went with the price point 49SP. For some form of reference my sawmill partner laughed at me for paying such an outlandish price for saw as he had just bought a new Mac 10-10 for $179.95 but after using my saw a couple times he trashed the 10-10 and bought himself a new 70E!!! I still use my 49SP weekly and is still my 50cc class go to saw though I have many other choices these days.

I have to give the OP credit for hand winding the mag coil on his 52! Though, like Bob, it's not something I would generally try to do. As he said, if you have one of these obsolete saws the best bet for parts is to find a dead one on the cheap that has what parts you need. You have to be careful though......I don't know how many parts saws I've acquired and later rebuilt into good runners!!

Trust me, after countless hand cramps and unwinding, re-winding to make it tight... it got old very fast. I had my length of copper, and I knew it was 7 trips of winding... the 7th trip probably could be a little better looking... but, I was over it.
