    I tore one down, blasted, painted, rebearinged and resealed one 25 years ago.
    Ran it for 8-10 years and then sold it because I was moving.

    The only parts I bought from Johnson was the hydro cylinder leather cup, pinion and ring gear. The rest, bearings, seals, bolts is off the shelf stuff.

    Great old saw.

      I picked up one in Dayton, worked fine but I had another with a wider blade so I let a friend have it.

          As I am working on the rebuild process - a couple of things :
          Does anyone have the dimensions of the original step pulleys?
          Does anyone have pictures of the original shut off switch configuration, when the saw finished the cut, it shut off?
          ( Or a better plan)

          Thanks
