The year before last I had a chance to get a Homelite muti-purpose saw, DM 50, at a local auction. The production # 6_1026_0095 tells she was manufactured on 1981(1 for 1026), January 26th, and she has at least 94 sisters besides herself(0095 tells it!), if I understand it correctly.
When she arrived she did not spin, her crank seemed to stop at the top end, so tore her down and gave her a check; Piston was pulled out but carbon deposits have been stacked at around the top dead center, so scraped off these debris out. Chy

OK, not so bad then. Be sure to carefully wash out the bearings on the crank and the wrist pin do be certain there is no debris in them before you reassemble. I am betting you knew that, your work looks first rate. I just wanted to be sure and warn others reading this thread about it. It will be cool to get that running again.

Thanks Sweepleader, appreciate your comment. The way they split or assemble crank case is to me a little more easy to those European models apply for theirs. Like some late McCulloch e.g. PM800 the lower part and upper part easily get apart with several threads, needless to remove many other parts around them. Chy
