Tom, the last of your parts should be here Monday, so saw should be back together Tuesday. I noticed that you had a clutch cover that was set up for the side adjust chain adjuster, so I had the parts laying around and will change it over, that way you will not cut off anymore finger tips adjusting your chain! ;D

Tim, it was just one finger tip, and it was all flesh.  The ER sewed it back on.  A side adjust, hmm, that's going to be something new for me.

It is no big deal, your clutch cover was already set up for it. Perhaps when you bought the new cover the dealer removed the parts because your saw had the front adjust. The side adjust allows you to adjust chain tension by putting your scrench in a hole in the clutch cover just behind the bar mount instead of threading it between the bar and inner felling dog to adjust the chain. If you do not like it it can be removed by taking out two screws. IMHO it really does make the process of keeping correct chain tension much faster, easier and more safely than the front adjust.

The 372 style with the adjuster in the cover is much easier to use than the 371 style in the crankcase.

I have a nice 371 but I don't really care for the adjuster in behind the bar.

........The pictures were taken with my new SnakeScope clone from Harbor Freight so may not be the best as the thing is difficult to use but not a bad deal reg $249 on sale for $199 and a 25% off coupon gets it for $150. .3 inch head (goes right down the plug hole) and also will go through the EP or IP and out the other side with adjustable light, pan and zoom. I have not tried but it may even fit beneath the piston at TDC and allow you to look at the crank........

couldn't get the quote to work so doing it this way.  was nosing around lowe's today and saw a "pocket" version of something similar for ~$100. had a 2' flexible reach with led's, magnifier, etc.  don't recall if you could take pix though. sorry. it was in the electrical section aisle

looking at that tag w/SN gave my pause for consideration. what would be the proper protocol regarding machine SN when swapping parts? somewhat of a tongue-in-cheek question but seriously, some machines, poulan 306A comes immediately to mind, can be "re-numbered" just by swapping parts (the starter cover in the case of the 306A). guessing there's really not a good answer but was just wondering.
yeah, i know, that can be dangerous.

I have 4 huskys and they all have the bar adjuster screw next to the bar.  This probably won't take much getting use to.  It'll probably spoil me.  ;D

Well in this case the 362/372 family of saws have the serial number tag on the flywheel side of the case. I suppose that it could be done by switching case halves to get a different number but a lot of work, and due to wear like on the front of the case you could tell really easily that something was not right. In this case I put up the picture of the tag so others would know it was the same saw. However I will be returning the original broken case half to Looking4Firewood along with his repaired saw. Also the side of the case that was replaced was opposite side.

I understand your question about proper protocol as far as serial number goes, my feeling is that it depends on the honesty of the person doing the repair. I have repaired saws with crushed cases that required a new case, which do not come from HVA with an ID tag. My process it to return all parts replaced during a repair to the customer. This way should the decide to sell the saw at a later date they can prove by the old case what the # was and show why the number is not on the saw at this time.

I have a little container of 365/372 serial tags removed from damaged cases.

660, I thought they were riveted on and were very difficult to remove without damage. If you know the answer to this please do not post it in the open.
