    162 was a wonderful saw. Only saw I don't have in that family is the 66. I ran 18" on the ones I had. Big brothers 266 and 272 was also great saws!

    There was a point to this, or several actually. First was to save starter housings as they broke a lot on the 50Rancher and others. Later ones (50/51/55) had decomp optional. Dealer ordered with or without.

    163S has points. One of the last good saws with points. Then came the CD versions that had no points. I have a couple of them and the other 60cc models in the 160 family. Rear handle is pretty unique as it is this, 1100 and 380 that has it. Hoses melt as there is additives in fuel the rubber no like, They are easily replaced. Throttle linkage with the sping is to kill any vibrations traveling along the rod. A bonus was that it helped to not bend rod as tank moved. This in pic has chain brake, but it was optional in most areas but here I think.

    The White cover 61 was introduced in market '77. It had a long run and was one of the most popular saws in the 162 family..

    Many think the protective layer in fuel tank is crap and remove it. Best trick I know is a hand full M6 nuts and half a tank straight fuel. Shake and shake... 163s was introduced 1970. 61 is a different, newer animal: http://chainsawcollectors.se/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=3036

    There is sticks for arc welders as well if you know what material it is. That is the trixy part... Material and how it will react to heat. I gave up on all that guessing and testing and just glue them. If its just air flow you are after its not so hard. A bit worse if you want the fin's to radiate heat as well.

    When fins are broken on intake side its not as risky as on outlet side. This one I would run without much thought.. Had many saws I run with broken fins. Cooling is better on intake side as all air pass this. Left side and muffler side is is hottest Partner had an idea about combining fluid cooling and air cooling. Fluid around cylinder to absorb and transfer heat evenly. A more effective cooling and this would keep temps in better levels. Sadly, this never got off drawing table.

    How much use has it? Age? Were are fins broken? If its a good dealer and you get good service I would get him to do it. Good help when needed is hard to find. The cheaper kits are often good after a bit work. Not always, but often.

    I tried them and can't say I like them. they are a bit too low in settings even if you happen to use the chain its designed for.

    Fuel is often the thing that act up in tempreture changes. Blaming brands, models and parts is of little use.

    Magnus replied to a thread Glue for cracked handle. in Chainsaws!
    The tanks are plentiful new and used. Not expencive either so if this to be a saw that see use and make money, a new tank is the way I would go. If this is not a money maker I would glue the cracks with a good epoxy. Lower and upper part if handle. I cut a groove along crack with grinder and fill up with epoxy. Only time I see this is when they are dropped or run over...

    Magnus replied to a thread When out of space... in Chainsaws!
    Yes. I had it going two years now. I got about 200 saws there and a couple from other collectors. http://chainsawcollectors.se/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=79&t=25300 We try to get a bigger place were we can show of more from many collectors making a sort of super exibit of saws. Not a easy thing to do.. I am up in museum now and then and its a hole lot more fun to sit there and look at the saws than packed in shelfs here. There is perhaps in avrege 10 visitors/month. First sunday afternoon in month I open, other than that they just call and I go up and show it. 76 visitors at once is record. They lined up and walked slowley thru it as ducks crossing a road. Those a bit more interested took two turns, there was about 25 that stuck around and had questions, talked for a bit. Its four rooms. This is the big room.

    We try to end each show with all saws running at once. Hopefully we get that done this years meetkng as well. 50-60 saws we had idling at one time. More than 10-15 per guy is hard as you want to rev them up every now and then.

    We are many collectors. I don't have a big collection in comparison to all of us collecting. Just here in my country there is those with double my size. But I am pretty alone in collecting chainsaw collectors. We are a pretty merry bunch.

    What to doo? Well you put stuff in boxes bins and shelf.. But when they are full? What then.. I could not figure out any really good solution that fit my wallet... So I get a few bin's on wheels, get big bags and fill this with boxes... Left is cubical Partners, right is Partner R11/R12.

    Not so much to see, its a grey stripe.. I cut a groove with grinder and 3mm disk and put in a steel rod. Sometimes bike spokes, I have many of them, other times I use what I have at hand. Then two component epoxy over all of it. Its a epoxy stick that is for alumium, but work real well on this plastic too. The steel one gets too hard and I think it moves less so it cracks up. I might have a 575 here, but mostly its custemer saws. I see if its still here.

    I cut and glue in reinforcements (steel rod) with epoxy on those I get in that is possible to fix. Done this on some 357's a couple 575's and 385s... Some Jonsereds too... Its always in the weld they break. Most in bottom. Had one 576 that leaked in rear handle were I could not get too it easily, so I replaced that tank and later reinforced it when it started leaking.

    As the bottom of tank flex the joined halfs break in the weld. The reinforcements help, but tank itself is stiffer now and I think that is what do the trick more than protect from beating. I think it is still not bulletproof...
