Thanks for your response on my Nissan Frontier Pro 4X. I didn't realize I posted twice. Recently my Dad passed on and as part of his estate a lot of his small engine yard care equipment came into my care, most of it being late 1970's to early 1980's chainsaws (Homelite, Poulan, Remington, .Dayton, etc.) I'm not sure what your small engine experience is but I would like your opinion. Overall they seem to be better quality than what's available in the big box stores today but the drawback is the safety features on these saws are pretty much non existent with the exception of a hand guard (no chain brake etc.). Should I explore the possibly there might be a niche market for these saws and at least try to get them running or should I try to sell them as a lot deal for all of them?

heck, fix em, then sell em, there is a niche market for higher quality more metal based saws than the plastic crap being sold these days.
