Lancaster saw with 13B engine restoration

Recommended Posts

I found this stray on ebay and got it running and cutting again.  I didn't have much hope for the bar and chain, but I tried soaking it in vinegar for 48 hrs. and was very happy with the results.  Here are a couple of pics of the new addition.

I'd like to paint the right side cover like the other parts, but have to figure out a way to save the decals.  I also need to make or buy the exhaust extension to mount the muffler.  It's very loud without it,  to say the least!

Very cool, look so good!  I think I remember seeing this one on eBay, nice grab!  That’s quite the improvement on the chain and bar!

Nice save. :thumbs:Quite the difference on before and after.

Don't believe I have a spare exhaust extension but will take a look. You can make one out of pipe and you can also make a longer exhaust rod to hold the muffler out of threaded rod.

The muffler and threaded rod are OK, it’s just that the extension flange has worn away from the pipe portion. Betting that it had been run with a loose muffler, and vibration took care of the rest.

Looks very nice, I've got one of these where the tank has rotted through, but I've seen one for sale.
