Damage to the 371 C/P. May be able to clean up the cylinder but with the broken fins I am not sure it is worth the time and effort. I will have pictures of the damage to the case in a bit.

Time for a new cylinder and piston.  That thing must have been really cooking.

I don't know how one would test it but the compression release did not seem to be working correctly either. e.g. no click when pushed or pulled, just slid back and forth.

I do not trust compression releases and avoid using them.   Even on my bigger saws I avoid them.

Here is the damage to the case. the first attachment is the crack at the rear, the second is the rest of the case where the ear is broken off. there is an undamaged case in the picture to illustrate where the 371 case is broken. I don't think either of the two damaged areas are show stoppers. The broken ear is obviously quite old IMO because of the oxidation level of the broken surfaces. Probably makes the saw a handfull when in use but the owner appears to be OK with it since he did not mention it in his summary of what was wrong with the saw or in a conversation we had on the phone.

Tim was that part of the Antivibe that went there where it is broken off?    To bad he did not have the broken piece that could of been welded back on.

Actually, it is where the travel limiter is installed. The travel limiter is nothing other than an M5 bolt threaded from halfway up the shank to the head, the rest being just a smooth pin that goes into an indentation about the size of a dime in the right side of the tank. I am not sure but I think it is there for those folks that are running the soft version of the AV springs.

Would have been nice to have it and put the saw back together right. Looking4Firewood is in Florida on business this week, perhaps I will send him a note this weekend to see if he might still have it. I don't know how to weld magnesium so will have to get someone to do it, if he has it.

Welding magnesium is something I can do.   He would just have to decide if it is worth the effort and expense for shipping.

The travel limiter I am familiar with.   On the huskys I have it is located in a different place.
I always thought it was there for the person who likes to yank on his saw too hard when pinched.

On the 372 the travel limiter goes in that little hole you see in the ear just behind the clutch.

KRL, good on you for helping out.  Those parts look awful dry.  Did you put them through the parts washer before the pics?
