Chainsaw Repair

In the middle of a job for a neighbor, my chainsaw seized up. Parts were not readily available so I made them. Since I was in the middle of the job, I just replaced the saw. Later, I decided to see if I could resurrect the old one. There are not a lot of pictures because I did not have a digital camera at the time so these are scans of 4*6 prints. Also a lot of action is missing because it occurred to me late in the process to document it. Tear down revealed that the conn. rod had welded itself to the wrist pin. Believe it or not, this actually worked.
