Some good looking saws there. Is that a 1050 in the lower right? I like Homelites too but am equally split between those and McCullochs. They are an interesting comparison because the two manufacturers took radically different design approaches but both came up with some excellent saws.

I've got all sorts of saws and must confess I have a few throwaway saws (Stihl) for day to day use now that chains and maintenance parts for the older saws are hard to find. My interest runs to bigger saws than yours, and older. Not sure why, that's just how it is. I like the bark of a larger, slower engine as it digs into a big log. When some big stuff comes along I fire up one of the oldies and have at it. For whatever reason I have been using the Homelite Super Wiz 80 most lately.

Keep on collectin'!

"Its 114cc Model 2000"

One of the true American big displacement, high performance super saws and a most worthy candidate for collecting. It looks like you are doing a great job on it. I'd like to find one some day. I have the McCulloch equivalent, the 797. A little bigger displacement at 7.5 cubic inches but not enough to quibble over. Either of these saws will tear through big hardwood timber like it's styrofoam. For whatever reason mine has 1/2" pitch chain, something unusual for a modern (relatively speaking) direct drive saw. I have a .404 sprocket so I can switch over but I am thinking I may go smaller yet as the kerf is thinner and so requires removing less wood, resulting in higher performance. But that requires changing the bar as well. Maybe someday...

Yeah mine is a 25" roller nose .404 sprocket .063 width. Here's a couple of pictures before I started restoration.
