I have a few of the same stickers, cool. What did you use to cut the notches to match the starter so well?

Not me. I sold my ported 375 using 375K ported concrete cylinder ( dozerdan ) before the stickers were  out.  I just saved pics of them from the net.

Nice looking 375.  Even has the sticker.  :-)

That's a serious bar.  I handled a 390xp today at my local pawn shop with a bar like that.  Bit on the heavy side.  375 with a woods port and a 20" bar should be more than enough for what I need to do on my land. 

How much for the 390? I wouldn't mind one of them for my small saw;)

I had one of those xpws from that seller also. It was ported already and not a great runner. The 10mm 044 I had then cut right with it.

LOL, I guess your big saw is a 3120, eh?  That 390 was marked at $600.  It'll probably sit there for a long time, because most people around are Stihl-heads.

As for that ported XPW, did Rich port it?  Sounds like an underwhelming saw...

It looked a lot like the one he showed videos of the cylinder porting. It wasn't very impressive.

My big saw is a 660 and 9010. The little saw is a 288 right now.

The saw is en route back to him now.  He agreed to give a full refund so that each of us only loses shipping costs one way.  I will update once he has issued the refund and everything is settled.

COOL, what are you looking for next. This is high season for chainsaws in upstate NY. So, I am getting tons of saws in on a daily basis. Today, 14 came in!

I still want a 372 with new bearings, seals, etc.  Preferably one with a compression bump and muffler mod.  A woods port would be nice, too.  :) 

Refund update:
He got the saw back today and submitted the refund through PayPal.  PayPal will take a few days to process it, but he sent the refund in full.

So there's a whopping 4.6cc difference between your 'little' saw and your 'big' saw?:D
