It said 2101 on recoil but could be 2101, never looked at tag. But it had the 2100 pro safety full wrap.  Built super strong and thick grip. Thicker then the grey full wrap grips I tried on them oem and way thicker then the black covered ones.

OK you husqvarna 2100 2100 1100 298 etc etc buffs.   Had 2 more in yesterday.
The question = One had a tank that had a lip and channel where the front handle bolted to it. Never seen this on all the rest so far. What did the tank come on if not a 2100 2101.

Still one of the best loved saws Husky ever built. It was very well designed and extremely strong,and the long stroke and full 100cc made it a real brute and it would happily pull any length of bar. Being a heavier sturdier design than modern saws they could be rebuilt again and again, they also had the torque to be happy on any Alaskan sawmill too.
I'm sure many people still have fond memories of running them. A few years ago I was in a shop and opened an old cupboard to see a really black oily neglected one sitting inside,I asked the owner what he was keeping it for,he said "It's an old piece of junk,I'm throwing it out",so I rescued it and took it home. When I washed it down it looked hardly used and it had the sturdy "West Coast" handlebars on it. The internals looked new so I tuned and modded it and it ran great,sold it in one day for $600.
What a lot of people don't know about the 2100 is that the oiler is designed so you can double the oil flow for a long bar,you simply remove the oiler and move a screw pin from hole 1 to hole 11(2),marked on the oiler.
It still is the king of torque of any 100cc saw made since.

When our shop sold chain we charged "per driver" for the length of the chain,for some reason .404 was the same price per driver(or close) as 3/8",so a lotta guys with long bars used the .404" because there was many less drivers in the chain so it cost less.
The saws are brutes and will happily pull .404 chain,with long bars many prefer skiptooth which makes filing faster,especially with a long bar.
To plug the governers in them we simply dropped in a welch plug from leftover carb kit parts,works fine.

That part about the two position oiler I didn't know about the 2100 . I run a 32" bar on my 2100 and it always oiled okay so I never delved into it .Good info to know .

I put a 42" bar on my 2100 for milling.   No extra oiler because the oiler on the saw really put it out.

Re: 2100 no power in the cut

All day with this thing. But I think I won after this last test session after pulling a gasket off of one of my HS carbs and using instead of the supplied gasket in the kit that is wrong wrong wrong.  You cant see it when putting all together lining intake bolts up.

Noticed this thing is a GAS HOG.   But power to spare. I ran his fuel out yesterday, ran a tank of my mix yesterday-today and start on another tank of my mix this evening.

Then I noticed the 2100 laughing at me. I thought what the heck I'm going to :-\ :-X. The bar nuts were vibrating off and 1 was already in the weeds. Got out the magnet on rollers and located it.  Yep were going to fight if it stays around.  :D :D

THANKS!


This is the post which lead me to find the final solution.  I wonder if it was the same wrong gasket supplied in both kits.  My saw is my dad's old Poulan 245 which has never ran well enough to use as a saw since it came from the factory.  It was the impulse passage, a rerouting channel which at the other end from the hole though the gasket, which was left slightly uncovered and leaking.  I found the old gasket and used it as a pattern to make a new one. 

The saga I read here have a lot of similarity with what I've experienced with this saw.  I had one of those run away events like you described.  I just buried the chain in wood and that stopped it. 

I've also plugged the governor thing.  Those run away events is what I think those so called governors are supposed to limit, but do not stop.  What I think they do is vent gasses into the diaphragm chamber lifting it away pulling the fuel valve closed.  And I think when that happened it bends the inlet control arm.  The aim I think is to prevent the saw from coming apart, perhaps starting a fire. 

There doesn't seem to be any literature about them I can find.  Just mentions here and there that they exist, "and to be sure to plug them with a disk you have to make."  Every where I read that.   I used that grey sealant, just a bit on the tip and then screwed it back in. 

The saw I'm working on has run away a couple of times in the past as well.  That was what caused my dad to box it and never mess with it again.  I found the control arm bent out above the bottom of the diaphragm chamber by 30 thousands. I think that is also why those diaphragms have that keeper in the fork at the end of the arm so that when the so called governor vents gasses into the diaphragm chamber it can pull on that arm really jamming the fuel valve tightly closed.

Which aftermarket pistons do you guys recommend for these saws? Unfortunately meteor don't make one.
