McColloch 35

Just picked up a McColloch 35 chain saw, the engines stuck and has 20" bar, looks to be complete.
Any use in trying to get this thing running? any value here ? How about parting it out?

The last one I bought I paid $20 for. It was complete, turned over and had no spark. I just thought it looked neat enough to throw on the shelf. I havent messed with it yet. I do not think it is a very valuable saw, but you can certainly try free-ing it up and playing with it before throwing money at it.

There was the 33, 35 series saws, made thousands of them. Heavy duty, built like a tank. Never saw one locked up. We used them as rentals because they were indestructible. Their "carb" was very touchy, finding a diaphragm will be a problem, today's fuels will destroy them. A very common saw, value is whatever someone will pay.
