If you don't get an answer here, I'd try posting this in the Chainsaw forum at Arboristsite.

make a gasket if need be. Gasket paper is available at most hardware stores. I use Permatex gasket sealer #2B. It is non-hardening. It is old school stuff. Apply it, let it skin over for about 20 minutes and assemble.

Have you all tried "Chain Saw Collectors' Corner" at the address below for info? Plus, post pics or links, I would like to see the "Monsters". A Remington gas saw vs electric is new to me. I serviced a few old Homelites in the mid 70s that were giants and old. The newer small saws were all the average owner had around here. Loger
