Old Chain Saw revival

I'm smiling right now because I just fired up my old 1958 Poulan K 100 chain saw. I almost threw it away the other day while cleaning out my barn. At the last second I decided to bring it to my business and get it running. I'm glad I did. Other than cleaning 25 years of dust and oxidation it was not bad at all. I sprayed the points with carb cleaner and it sparked!. Cleaned the carb and replace the hoses and it fired right up! I have four more saws and several old briggs engines I may look in to.

I'd love to see this thing.. I didn't know Poulan was around that long!


I fixed an old Homelite this fall.. Neighbor said it was junk and I could have it for art or decoration..lol... I replaced the hard leaking fuel lines and it fired up and ran like a Honda.. It was just sucking air

Sharpened the chain and filed the guides...

Took muffler off and checked the bore..MINT..

I ended up giving it back to him... I could see him prairie doggin in his yard...lol... Wonderin wtf have I done...

Its gotta be from the 70's..

The guy at the flea market closest to me has a really old chain saw, he is asking a $100 for it, says he never tried to start it, wants the $100 for the way it looks, which is very cool, weights a ton and it is huge ----I am going to take a pic of it this weekend, maybe one of you'll lumber jack kinda guys would like to have it for a wall hanger ----I'd bet no doubt it is early 50"s -------let's see what you got 'Clean


I didn't mention, the guy has had it for a year or so, so I'd bet he would take less

Old saws are easy to work on and fun! I have an old mini homelite apart right now that will probably run great if the crank seals are still good... I'll share a pic of it in a couple days when its back together. But I wanna see your '58 Poulan first... :-)

They started business I think in the late 40's or early 50's. This seems to be one of their first saws that were lightweight one man saws. LOL

Yes they are fun be sometimes not so easy to work on. This one needs the starter removed to remove one screw on the carb mount. Also the low speed screw is not accessible while running. I think the starter needs to be removed to adjust it too. I figured a way to turn it with a small screwdriver from the side somehow. lol

The 1st pic is the 1958 K 100. The stars and stripes one is the 1976 bicentennial saw they made. I just got it running this morning too. 3rd is a about 1960 to 1965 model 54. Just pulled it off the shelf. 4th is an old Mc Cullough. I just pulled it off the shelf for this pic. I have one more Poulan 4200 with the bow bar plus around 5 or 6 old Briggs motors I might post pics of.
