Was at the auction today and picked up an old danarm 171 ss chainsaw. And was pleasantly surprised when I got it home started no problem plus it came with a spare chain.
    So all in all didnt do too bad at auction today. I got the danarm chainsaw, the shay rotogardener and an old atco lawnmower. The atco lawnmower started no problem aswell, the only problem being is that the fuel on/off switch is leaking fuel so will have to look for one of those.

If the fuel tap is leaking and it is a push/pull on tap with a cork on the plunger you should be abl eto buy a new plunger rather than replace the whole tap.

Cheers Charlie but got it sorted just pushed the little washer that holds the cork in place and squashed itmaking it fatter and it has done the trick.
