I'm a bit surprised too, these little engines must be getting more popular. :)

 

Looks like your sorted for a needle valve, have a look at the carb thread to check if any other parts are missing, note that most carbs use a check ball (in two sizes) & some later ones have a rubber seal on the diaphragm arm.

It’s funny and also sad- I bought a NOS needle valve a few months back on eBay but it ended up puncturing a hole in the envelope and getting lost during shipping. All I got was an empty damaged envelop. That was a royal bummer!

 

I've had a couple of empty paper envelopes too, thankfully only modern stuff that was easily replaced.

 

It's also annoying how some people can't be bothered to pack larger items properly, I've lost count of the number of things that have arrived damaged as a result, you shouldn't have to remind sellers how to pack properly. :banghead:

Most of the damaged items I've received are heavy vintage electronics (way off topic) not O&R's, but the point is still valid.

I would also like to not thank the customs folk here in the UK for adding a scratch to the blower housing of what was a nice condition early O&R. :banghead:

Edit by Factory: It's best to send personal details such as addresses/phone numbers etc. using private messages (PM), this can be found using the letter symbol at the top of the page if using a PC, or in the menu (three bars) if using a tablet/phone.

Yes, thanks, I agree. I was Skeptical, but I am still learning how to navigate this site.

Nice unit looks great!!  I have pic of my outboard it only has a screen and a small cover to hold it on .

Most outboards and snow blower today don't have much for filter there is usually not a lot of dirt.

It's surprising how many people ask for filters where they weren't fitted, also filter foam (and other foam) in a damp environment will attract water & cause rusting or corrosion.

 

Have you got the cover & tank for that Aquabug? Most seem to be missing these, but I could just about see what looks like the support for the tank, see the picture below (sorry it's poor quality, old ebay pic).

The more people that can help with new carb diaphragms the better :thumbs:, Wallfish was kind to send me a small stock of them to help the O&R collectors in Europe. :)

I have been removing contact details from view as I find them, so far I've only had one member re-add them (which they are welcome to do), if anyone spots any contact details we have missed in older posts please let any of the Mods know.

I don't usually log in with my phone but I thought I would to see how it the PM works on those, I prefer using my PC with keyboard over the phone touchscreen for typing.

Wow-those are some nice finds! Is that a Meier chainsaw?  The cutoff saw is pretty rare too!

It's not a Meier chainsaw, it could be a later Chip-A-Saw (also branded as Paul Bunyan), see the linked thread, post #16 has some pictures of the Chip-A-Saw version;

Nice, that was my second guess. I’ve been dreaming about a Chip a Saw for a long time, especially after missing the last one that came up on eBay.  
 

Your’s looks to be in great shape!

Yes it's a chip-a-saw got it off ebay last year hope I didn't out bid you.  $37.50 no one bid on it was missing the recoil

but I though that was a good price.  ( was in a strange place on ebay)

it's been nice the last two week I finally have time to work on this things.

Wow- that’s a steal!  Good for you grabbing an awesome deal like that.  The last one I saw went for over $300!

The chainsaw pictured in post #3 was one of a pair I imported (they were sold together & it worked out quite well with the shipping), Paul now has that one, neither of them had any decals.

Yes that's the one Paul, the other is still awaiting restoration, thanks for the reminder about the decals. :thumbs:

 

Speaking of decals here are a couple of pictures I took of the Aquabug decals to help Paul, they should be useful if other people need to have some made too.

Finally getting a chance to open up my Aquabug. Recall when I bought it the recoil was spring from being yanked too hard. I think it just needs a good cleaning and re-assembly. Now that I have the cover off I’m starting to think this engine may not have been used much, if at all. It certainly doesn’t look as though it’s ever been worked on. It needs some cleaning but it looks to be in really great shape.  The gas tank doesn’t have any odor whatsoever and is about as clean as it could be, makes me wonder if it’s ever even been gassed up.  I should probably Pull the flywheel to clean and adjust the points while I’m at it but I kind of hate to do anything to it but clean it up. It even still has the oil sticker on the prop housing. I would suspect that would have been long gone if it had been used much.
