My 2009 5100131 338XPT has the same "new edition" sticker like yours.

Comparing the 05 to the NE 2010 the only real difference I can see is the side tensioner in cover on the 10.  Was there other changes made I dont see till inside one?

Talking with a owner of a 338 he has torn down. He is needing info on the fuel line routing.  Anybody got any info? Pics etc?

Also what is the normal psi on these saws?

I took a bigger diameter decking or drywall screw and you have to cut the pointy tip off.  ;)  Then screw into the zinc metal cap to remove pulling straight out with pliers.

Once the L side zinc cap was removed I could adjust the H side without having to remove that one.  8)

Well the 338 I ended up getting to keep is finished and ready to test with stock to stock no muffler mods on either. Only thing done on the 338 is screen pulled and deflector opened up some.

Just read this on the 2013 338 updates. Was this part of the New Edition updates on the 2010 too?

338 XPT represents a new upgraded edition with increased compression ratio for more rapid acceleration and increased torque.

The 338  last use in Aug-Sept didnt check out on my testing before shipping when checked out the other day. So I pulled the plug on sale till fixed.

To the guy waiting on this. I tested 338 today and it was acting like it is going to need a carb kit.  Been setting since Aug or early Sept. It is a 2011 and never had a carb kit put in. So right now I wont sale it the way it is with idle and taking throttle.

Going to lock FS thread till I get it fixed and then will update.

Yep carb diaphragms fill stiff and going to go ahead and replace primer bulb while I have it apart there. 

Went ahead and pulled coil and cleaned all the gunk out of there and reset gap too.

Carb was 3 years old  2011 338xpt. Man what a difference a new carb kit makes.   ;D ;D 8)  Went ahead and put a new purge bulb on it while I had it down to there.

Dang wondering if I really do want to sell it now to get a T540xp.  It will do everything I need plus some.  :P

The 338XPT is a good little saw. Going on 5 yrs with mine and still running strong with no repairs yet.
The only thing I don't like about it versus my old MS200 is the 338 doesn't have a cold weather pre-heater window for the carb. I've run the 200 right into early winters and early springs with their freezing temps. That's one thing Husky didn't do their homework on. Seeing the the new 540 is closer in design to the 200 hopefully it has the winter/summer window.
Making a living with a saw since age 16.

husqvarna 338 xpt intake boot removal
« Reply #49 on: March 28, 2014, 03:52:19 pm »
First 338 I had to pull the motor out on.  2010 model that the intake boot pulled apart.   

Looking how the AV and intake boot set up is, it is pretty easy to see why this is a problem on these saws.  JMO.  In my we little mind anyways.
