    I'd say go for it, before they become extinct. All the bits are still available and cheap if you go for non genuine or purchase an old chainsaw.

    Just work methodically, with G206 I started with the gearbox as I knew it was almost terminal, (over £300 spent just on the berrings) then slowly did the rest of it. Took about 6 months of before and after work about 3 days a week. I never did find out why the engine was seized. Took it totally apart and couldn't see any issues, then after reassembly it started fine, - must of been some dirt or something in one of the berrings?

    Here's some photos from when I timed up g206 the only difference is that it's a bth mag.

  5. It did look awesome in the flesh, particularly with all the different attachments. Good luck with building the trailer. First place very well deserved.

    That'll have to come once I've done one, 20 year gaps will have to do for the next year or two.

    And heres the 4th machine. The idea is to show how little the design of the Gem changed over the years by having an example from the 1940's, 1960's and 1980's.

    It's always the same, you leave a couple of gems together and they breed, lol.

    I think you must be mixing me up, lol., im Gareth. Ive got to admit whereas the Dowdeswell engine is less cluttered the bonnet on the Sachs has grown on me. (Probably because ive seen it every day in the workshop since January). I don't think the lack of fuel tank on the frame looks right on the 650,Guess its just what you get used to?

    Just realised that I haven't updated this project in a while. With Tractorworld only a week away, heres where it stands at present. Just a bit of touching up todo with a few minor adjustments.

    From memory in 99% sure the same engine is used in the applied 414 pedestrian sweepers (Green machine), which can often be picked up for no money at ex council sales. May be easier to get a head from one of those?
