My husband's love is dying and needs body parts-can you help me. She has an 18" bar, gas tank,and is a Model 5/10 automatic ,1968-?? McCullough Chain saw with a lot of useage. We would like to bring more life to her and have lost knowledge of someone to repair and obtain parts. We live in southeast Ohio along the Ohio river. Is there any suggestions where to get needed parts from anywhere. Thanks "Lenny"

I know there is a small engine repair / carpet store, called Runnion's (or Runion's) in Spencer/reedy area W Va., on Route 14. Maybe they can help.

McCullough went out of business several years ago. After market parts may or may not be available. Probably the best you can do is to try to find another old one with the parts you need.

The local Wal-Mart is carrying 2 models of McCullough saws so some one has started making them again. You may not be able to get parts for one of that age but might be able to get a replacement.

On page 324 the Chain Saw Service Manual 9th edition published by Intertec (Lib Congress Catalog Card #92-74935 lists McCulloch distributors in various states. Among them are Stull Company, 701 Fourth Ave., Coraopolis, PA 15109, and Lawn and Golf Supply Copmpany, PO Box 447, Phoenixville, PA 19460. They may still have parts.

I too have an old chain saw Mac 450, It is basicly an old go-kart engine (Mac 45) which was built in the early 1960's. I was searching for "McCulloch Distributors" 3829 rising sun rd Bullhead city, arizona when I came across your request. I purchased parts from them about '95 and trying to find out if they are still in business. I purchased engine parts from them. If you want parts specific to a saw your best bet are auctions, or old chain saw parts stores.

Sneak around in the middle of the night and throw the damned thing away. Then get hubby a Stihl.
Blame the disappearance of the old saw on pilfering neighborhood kids.
When the Stihl's as old as the Mac, he'll love it even more -- and it'll still be running.
