    There certainly are more experienced people than me who would likely offer a wiser reply, but I would guess that the saw might well have simply quickly froze up with no damage to the crank bearings or anything else besides the p and c. After thoroughly blowing out and cleaning the crankcase and parts within, check the crank movement. If it seems good, why not go for it with a new p and c. When you do install the new piston on the crank, be mindful of the circlips position that holds the piston on the crank pin. The curly q should either be in the up or down position in it's seat, not sideways, or it's said that the clip can fly out. I had a clip either break or fly out once on a real cool modified saw that I had put a lot of work into and was getting real good use from, rendering both the piston and cylinder damaged to uselessness. Bring that saw back to life!

    I'm sure you can return it if there is NO sign of ANY wear.

    Does Treestuff or New Tribe have one to try before you buy? I really like this saddle but I wanna give it a run first. I tempted to wait for a sale but I do see Treestuff has the coupon thing going on now. If I purchased this saddle and another climbing rope I could get the 7% off plus $100 gift card. So I may just do this if the next couple weeks goes as planned. Loss some money this week due to this funk going around with flu like symptoms. My son got it, I had it, and my daughter is hopefully getting over it now. I am ready to pull the trigger on this it's just always something I need/want ��

    Hey gerry it's the saying proper terminology promotes clear communication, but they have to be willing to learn the terminology first. Probably worked out for the best, I think your book is perfect. My mantra is : ten feet higher, wow I made it, ten feet higher wow my hearts still working etc. until I get to where I want to be. I like the rock climbing one better. I think it is the heights , limb walks, swings basically everything about climbing that makes me addicted to climbing and getting that sudden rush when something unexpected happens but having dependable gear and trusting it is a huge bonus. Like Cory said my biggest worry is the tie in point and the tree itself in most cases, but I guess that's all part of it.

    Stay away from milk, don't drink more than half a gallon of sleep, and get 8 hours of drugs. After that remember that the people that made your climb line and all your other gear are good enough at what they do and don't want your widow to sue them. If you want to be scared be afraid of the tree itself breaking out from under you. Your gear is plenty strong.

    That was a rock climbing mantra, Jerry. 15-20' falls are not uncommon in rock climbing (highly dynamic rope). 100' falls in extreme climbing can happen without issue, if "clean" (step to overhanging). Longest rope jump is around 1200'. The take-away is that when situational awareness, proper technique, and proper gear are used together, you're protected, not bulletproof, but things should work out okay.

    Same here. It goes to the lowest bidder with no loyalty except for the dollar. Or the lack of.

    Town work goes to the lowest bidder Cory. Sometimes it pays well, sometimes it doesn't. Depends on how busy everybody is. lots of storm work here now. I'm doing a job for the city tomorrow that will pay well as a result of the demand for tree guys.

    Thread Hijack! I got a mid 90's 066 last year, actually a box of saw parts that used to be an 066... Story I heard was that it was used for a chainsaw mill and the piston shattered while flushing a big stump. I bought a new cylinder and piston, and right now have the crank case by itself, with the flywheel and clutch still attached. Remaining piston is still attached. Should I just throw the new cylinder on and see if it goes? Can I check the seals with it in its current state? split the case and check the bearings to see if they ate any piston shrapnel? Wanted a tinkering project, but maybe a bit over my head & not sure where to start. How would you experts attempt to revive this corpse of a saw. Money on parts is already spent, so worst case scenario I'm out about $150. What can I do to increase my chance of getting this old dog up and running again?

    Frightening too, Butch. I once hooked a big Halibut on sport gear when trolling for salmon, in a 12 foot skiff about a mile off shore just south of Ft. Bragg. The ocean was flat and I had a radio to call in case of emergency. That Halibut was in the neighborhood of 200+ lbs. I had it up to the boat two times and it stripped over 200 yards of 40 lb. test off the reel each time heading out to deeper water. I had to fire up the outboard to keep up with that fish. I ended up off of Casper High Point some 2 miles south of Ft. Bragg before the line broke. The fish was too big to land in the boat anyway. I'd have to tie it by the tail and tow it off the stern. But if it came alive it would tear the stern off the skiff. The whole time I was torn between trying my damnedest to land that fish or just cut the line, and play it safe. Oh, I couldn't cut the line. The only reason I stuck with it as long as I did is because it was a flat calm ocean and I had several coves nearby to duck into for safe landing, if the need come. The whole experience was exhilarating and freighting all at the same time. Truly a tale of the "Old Man and the Sea". Ah, but I was only 30 then. Bring it on!

    I remember reading an article about a guy that hooked a giant tuna while in his small inflatable. Multi hundred pound fish I believe it was. I can't recall exactly, but I think something like three hours or maybe longer to finally succeed in bringing the fish up to his raft. I imagine it was quite a feat to accomplish.
