Recieved an 041av from a good friend of mine. Pretty well took apart already. Seems like a simple design. This is mainly just gonna be a cool saw to refurbish and make clean again and possibly make a little stronger. Piston and cylinder are mint. Comp was at 150 psi.

I noticed the squish was at 0.044. The gasket doesn't appear that thick. So planned on gasket delete.

The muffler looks like the cover has a couple of tack welds holding it together. So plan on checking out what's in there as well.

Anybody have any suggestions or expierence doing over this saw?
