I was at the recycling center this weekend and picked a Skil Saw 1642 chainsaw out of the scrap metal dumpster. After a new air filter, spark plug, fuel lines and a good teardown and cleaning the thing fired right up and runs great. I wasn't sure on the fuel mixture because it wasn't marked on the fuel cap so I assumed that 40:1 would at least let me start the thing. I talked to Skil and they said they haven't done chainsaws in 20 years and have no documentation on the saw. Anyone have any ideas. If it continues to run on 40:1 should I just use it or is there potential to break/ruin something?
No announcement yet.
