Photo Sears Chain Saw 18" Circa 1961

I have a chainsaw my Dad bought (I was with him), at Sears about 1961, I believe. It still runs, when you can get it started.

This saw is heavy. Looks (and feels) like it's about 99% metal. Made in the USA. Original rope on starter, is in very good condition.

I have some pics that show the model and serial number, and would like more info if I could get it.

Thank You

I'm not 100% sure but I believe it was built by the same company that built MONO saws. I have one of those and it looks almost identical and uses the same Tecumseh engine.

My dad bought the Electric version the same year!
All parts but electric motor/Gasoline engine look the same.

I think this is close to your model.

The 917-60050, direct drive, was first in this newer style of flywheel shroud used on AH-47 motors. 91117-60051 for gear reduction. The following years model included 917-60057 and 917-60058. Basically all the same saws with minor changes like carburetors.

I also have one of these saws. It belonged to my grandfather. It's been in my dads barn for the last 30yrs. I got it out, cleaned her up and got her running. I need to know what size chain it takes. Or maybe a bar and chain combo from Oregon. Thanks for any help. I do have the original bar for it. I think it's an 18"

It is probably a standard 3/8"-.050 chain but it would depend upon what sprocket is on the saw. Take your saw and bar to the local saw shop and they should be able to determine what you need. Should be around 66 links.
