Figured I'd put a silver clutch cover since it got a Xtra Pee top-end.   ;D

Thanks... It almost went in the parts box when I found it needed a crank. But it is really too nice for that.

I have never run a 357XP except to fire up a new one for a customer but loved the 359 with an 18" bar and 3/8 chain. Light and all the power we needed for cutting soft wood fence posts and fire wood. We seemed to have fewer problems with the air filter clogging with snow and icing up than the Stihl guys, they were running 026 and 036.

Shep, I'm curious about the 359 with dolmar piston, what the idea behind that one?  Windows?  Thanks Adam
Didn't get on site yesterday to answer your question.  Yes windows, piston is lighter and 1.2mm ring.

357xp has a little more zip over the 359. Both great firewood saws that usually get overlooked...
