This Page is where I for me to post up random projects I've taken on - such as the Pioneer 620 petrol chainsaw
pictured above, which I bought on ebay when slightly intoxicated. At the time I thought it wouls make a great prop
for a halloween costume (it really does look the part for a psycho's chainsaw), but it is bloody heavy, and the
idea of me wandering around town leathered and wielding a chainsaw was not good.
It doesn't start or run, unless you spray easy start into the carb, in which case it runs perfectly - it has good
(more like bloody excellent) compression, and turns freely, so I'm guessing it's either a blocked fuel line/filter
or a goosed carburettor - I'mhoping it's the former, as that will be an easy fix.
I plan to clean it up, get it running and repaint it - no idea what I'll use it for (I live in a 2up, 2 Down
terrace with a concrete back yard, hence the photo of it sat on my coffe table!), but I do like fixing things.
