    Default New project

    Husky 163...

    Did a removal and the guy that hired me brought out an old 163S (63ccs). S is for? Saying he couldn't get it to start, I pulled off the plug and pulling the starter must have shot gas into his yard ten times....I mean way into his yard! Stinky gas too. If I hadn't noticed that the old bar on it had no wear, I'd never fallen for the line that I could take it home.

    Anybody have a good way to remove gum from a gas tank? Hose was melted in there too. Lots of compression, it started up for a second with fresh gas added to the cylinder. One of those roll down the hill with no problem types, but not that heavy. I've seen worse, needs a carb kit and a hose and filter, maybe that's all.

    Looks like it could be a good mid range saw. I like it, it has an interesting throttle arrangement, I think we're becoming friends! Anybody ever have one?

    I recall having a old white top 61 I believe that looked similar.

    No chain brake, so it's an early model, I guess introduced around 1973-'74. I ran a 61 for awhile, it wan't mine, but a guy that only had the use of one arm would have me use it at jobs. A good saw I recall.

    Nice looking saw.

    I have a pail of carb cleaner in the shop. Might be bad for plastic though.
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    So that pretty looks like stainless guard in front of the handle isn't a chain brake? You sure?
