Dirtiest Carb I've Seen

Recommended Posts

I think there is a carburetor in here someplace or maybe it's just a lump of dirt that looks like one. Surprisingly this machine ran great after a couple of gallons of carb cleaner.


Unfortunately the rest of the machine looked pretty bad as well but it was a freebie and it worked perfect.


It made a good cold weather project when it just didn't pay to heat the whole shop and it wasn't too hard to take apart, cleanup, sand and paint. A couple of rattle cans of Stihl paint and it cleaned up pretty good. Something to do while waiting on some parts from the machine shop for the KT17 we're rebuilding. Actually these old concrete saws do pretty well on Ebay so this should be some more green for the tractor fund.

--They eat alot of dirt.Keep the pre-cleaner and filter clean.Check them everytime you use it.--- Great advise, too bad too many people on construction jobs don't do such, have seen a lot of them in that condition. Nice job of cleaning it up and making it look new again.

Have used many of those over the years. We had them to cut concrete,Rebar,many different things. Cut Off Saw [Partner Saw]. After cutting concrete all day they still ran like a champ. Stihl sure makes some good stuff. A saw like that is a must in the construction trade. Especially when building bridges. BOB
