Coil Spring Stud Spacer Pics...
« Reply #20 on: January 03, 2014, 09:04:21 pm »
Here ya go Jerry.  You can see the remainder of the 3/8" coil extension spring (originally was longer, with hooks/eyes on each end) and the two spacers I've made from it so far.  4 coils is about the right width, at least with this spring.  You may have to adjust that coil count depending on the wire thickness of the spring you get, as well as your bar thickness.  Obviously you want the spacers to be just narrower than your bar.  The second pic is of the spacers on the studs of my Poulan Pro 375.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

I have used a heli-core for the spacer if needed.
You can buy a pack of (6) in most auto part stores.
They come in most any size you need even metric.
Most of the time their is no cutting , just slide it on the stud.
