Got almost all the parts for the 038
Was a spare carb in the parts box.
Used it as the saw was boggin on the one it came with.
Both Bings.
Here is the best I can do pic of the slug.
Machine marks are still on it, like new in there.
Has a dual port muff, oils and runs as it should.
What size bar is this comfy with??

Thanks Pete for sending the brake flag.

I know I'm going to get flamed, rightfully so, I was told to use this saw.

What's the secret to starting this POS? Swear to Christ it takes 38 pulls of the rope to start the mfer. Makes greendohn look like he's moving fast.

And if the saw sits for more than 3 minutes, it's another 23 rope pulls to bring it out of autotune hell. Yesterday I let it run for 4 hours and refueled it running.
It does have some power but nothing to get excited about.
