    No it should not pump at idle, but with bar and chain off sometimes clutch drum turn anyway ans it oils a bit. Let me guess you have .050 guage bar? Tiny oiler hole? Perhaps a bit dry wood?

    Classic! One more bonus when filing vertical. You tend to pay attention to this better. The danger of getting hurt is more obvious I think.

    I can't use gloves. I try, but it just don't feel right. I wish I could.. Twice I rubbed file dust in to my eyes. I cut myself many times straitening out chains delivered in bundles or digging thru the boxes looking for chain.. Running saw I can do, but thats about it. I tried as hard as I possibly can.

    In Germany the wages are very good and cost of living quite a bit less than here. Standard is about the same as here. Most I know that lived in US, Germany and Sweden end up here for other reasons than living costs.

    ABB assemble some robots about 20km from my house for automotive industry. They as many others use the china plants mainly for production of parts although some do some assembly and finished products. The product control is expensive were ever you are so its not much gain in it.

    Even though they are not common I would not say they are rare as they can be found if they were sold in the area. Rare to me is a handful saws, not hundreds or in most cases thousands. In USA there was thousands 1020's sold, as well as in Europe. They pop up now and then in the areas they were sold in.

    There is some 1020's in some areas. As it was export only here is none. Partner Used same engines in cut of saws as in chainsaws. Later in time (after elux) there is some differences. R11 was thought of as the first rescue saw. The Partner cut of saws was superior for many, many years. At the end they are sold under Husqvarna brand and now it is no Partner designed saws left I think. Just Husqvarna designed saws. Brand is now in bottom draw, no more saws made as Partner. Some pop up in box stores but they were built a couple years ago before brand was killed. The saws from Partner was very well built in engine. No rattling, vibrations or noise unless something was broken. When you have a engine like that running it is as close to music you can come with a engine. All you hear is combustion. The 65cc was extremely durable. Have many customers with them around here. As long as there is spark they run. If they had points they would last for ever. The more Elux/HVA got involved they changed to HVA.

    If you are familiar with the saw and experienced enough you can hear difference in the tone when it four-stroke and hit limiter. Most newer saws don't like running rich as they don't perform optimal so best is to set them after performance in wood. If they are lean they get too hot and go kaboom... Reading plug is a good way to see how it ran over a period of time. Fuel has a lot to do with how it reads as well as setting. I try to avoid used plugs as they are fairly cheep and washer is only compressed correct once. I have seen to much problems and costs to do that. As most here use same fuel its a lot easier.

    For fast smooth cutting rakers are set too low to begin with IMO. It's best after 4-5 filings. Most common reason rakers are low is to compensate for sharpness. Second is that the filer lack knowledge of how to set them and why. Filing became passion for me, others see it as a big pain. There is no limit how good it can get. Only the ones You set.

    If files position is a bit low in cutter you don't get correct shape of cutters top and side plate. A larger diameter file will not work long as you will file other stuff not meant to be filed. Just place it a bit higher in cutter.

    In hard wood the filing is best done with a bit less hook in corner for smooth cutting. Hook compensate for a not so good edge as well as the raker setting. Its also a bit more forgiving with angles If you look at tooth from outside in It should be more ( than C. The straighter the better it holds, but harder to get really good sharp edge. Some times the side of the tooth is not very sharp, It can't cut fibre of and binds in the cut. What chain and length is this? 372 pulls 24" full comp chain well even in hard wood.

    Synthetic and semi synthetic oils is nothing new. But knowledge and awareness about oils is higher today. Products are often a bit more sensitive to what you feed them. There has always been different oils for water cooled two-strokes versus air cooled.

    Not all oils age well. Some do, but some need to be used up in a year or so to be sure they perform correctly. It is often the mixed types that is aging in bottle. Sometimes you see and smell it as you open. Sometimes you know it when saw go kaboom. You see it when you pull it down if lubrication was adequate or not... Its not just the oil that you need to think about. It is to be mixed with something as well. If it isn't mixing as intended you run in to trouble..

    Yes, I know many don't know much about this and thank I them for helping me earn a living. Did you run this gallon oil in one and the same saw? What oil was it: Semi sytnthetic/synthetic/dino oil?? What was oil for? Was it for aircooled snowmobile engine or water cooled? Water cooled engines are better controlled in temp. They get hot and stay in same heat until cooling system fail. Air cooled are running up and down in temps a lot more and put other demands on oils.

    Ignition system, fuel systems, engines combustion design / temperatures as well as fuels used to mix are all different. I call these newer type engines fresh air engines as they get air in without oil, fuel that lubricate and cool. Older oils have a hard time handling the heat from combustion as it is hotter and often burn longer time. This is to get a better emission reading so our environmentalists can sleep well on the plane to Bermuda for vacation a weekend. Heat that is higher than the oil is meant to use cause it to carbonize before its done its done doing its job. Some times before its done any of its jobs. Often this gets stuck inside engine on walls of ports, piston head, in case and on crank/bearings. The carbon buildup prevent cooling and lubrication, restrict flows and that is not good. Sometimes it sticks to pistons skirts as this is already too hot for the oil as it goes in to engine. This create friction = more heat. You can see this when you tear them down after they gone caboom. Burned carbonized oil almost every were. I often see this when they run wrong oils in older saws. When they broke they put them under bench and now 20-30 years after they bring it here for me to play with. I have customers come with a bunch of 80's saws in boxes that did their job then back in the day. They ask me to get what I can going again so they can get their hands on something that work more than a couple weeks at the time.

    Yes, I think this is bettor of on a collector shelf than in the newer saws. The saws today are different from the ones in 80's and this oil even in spanking new condition doesn't really stand the design of new saw engines. It will work, for a bit.. If you sell these cans and get one you can use that should have you set with oil for a bit.

    There is a couple more things it can be. If you pull choke and insert it again you get what is called throttle lock or fast idle. This disengage as you pull throttle. If you start and take choke in without pushing throttle this is still engaged and you are set for higher rev. Carb setting that is a bit off and need adjusting. Starting saws with spinning chain is not very good. Better start with brake engaged so nothing happen.

    Thank you! This was a big help in understanding. So there is alkylate fuel in US! But is it aggressive? In the Aspen Fuel we use there is 98% by weight Alkane (Isopentan, Isohexaner, n-butan, Isobutan, Isoheptan, Isooktaner, Isononaner) Less than 0,1% of the aggressive stuff like toluene, xylene, ethylbenzene.. http://www.aspen.se/Guider/Guide_Svensk_Light/Jamforelse_vanlig_bensin_och_Aspen_alkylatbensin/Skillnaden_mellan_Aspen_alkylatbensin_och_vanlig_bensin This compared to the gas we have in stations that is 41% Alkane.

    You can still get them at dealers here so I think its no different in US. They are sold as two parts so you need both inside and outside part. There is several different, but paper and nylon is most common I think. Actually there is a couple different nylons... Flocked is metal net with fiber on it and I don't think I have seen that. Its more like a paper filter than flocked if it look like this:
