    Owners of Model 500VL chain saws with serial numbers inclusive to 0023000 should contact their Echo Dealer to arrange for replacement of the saw at no charge. The new Echo saw, model 510 EVL, comes equipped with a solid-state electronic magneto which is not removed during routine maintenance.

    I think there is newer then the 510 now too. Good Luck with your choices.
    The serial number is 0186600. I had it at an Echo dealer and he didn't say anything about a recall, but this saw is from the 80s I believe.

    UPDATE #2: she runs!
    My guy had it going in 2 hours. Cleaned the carb really good and it started on first pull! Said it ran like a champ!
    As my "backup" saw, I am glad to have it around. Thanks to all with your advice and suggestions!
