broken av mount on a husky 365
« on: December 29, 2013, 04:27:59 am »
this is what I started with. owner tried to clean it up a small amount and then tried to weld the tang back on. didn't work, lost the broken piece, brought it to me for something that would work other than a $400 repair bill from dealer.


cut and welded a couple of 120thou thick pieces together to make a bracket. drilled and tapped the holes for the screws, welded both brackets to the spike for added strength:



locked everything in place with jb weld:


bolt everything up, wait for jb weld to cure, and throw saw back together:

Nice job, how did the tab get broken off in the first place?

I agree with Kevin, and give my stamp of approval as well.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Sorry to be drifting off-topic here..............but I found this pic while searching for the 'thumbs up' pic in my above post.



Am I the only one that's genuinely impressed (instead of just amused) by this guy's auto AC solution?  I think it's awesome (although probably a bit loud with that genny running on the decklid).  Also digging his tail light retrofit.  I'll bet it get's nice and COLD in there with that bad boy running...8)
