Crank stuffers...and stuff
« on: February 20, 2016, 01:54:17 am »
Couple of questions.....

How loose is too loose on these 562's?

Any reason not to use Three Bond 1184 to tack them on with?

Thinking of trying to do a build w/o stuffers and more intake duration & transfer port tweak along with a significant pump in compression. Shooting for torque and don't care if I loose some of that 16K 2 second "zing" for limbing. Want to pull the power down a bit in RPM's

I have a 545 without the stuffers as well as a 550.

I like them both and they go together as a pair in the woods and the sharpest chain gets the most use.

Watch the video's, good stuff as usual. BUT still interested in folks experience with those stuffers getting loose as I've seen that on three 562's so far. When you pull the cylinder you can move the stuffers around with a finger...that loose. Two had bad flywheel side bearings. I put one back together with "tighter" stuffers tacked on with 1184 to see if that's a workable solution.

Second, in the thread he made reference to "making room" for the stuffers showing the crank. Is the 555 crank different than the 562? A little wider maybe? Do they have different PN's? Or is a 562 identical with the addition of the stuffers. It would make sense the crank on the 562 should be narrower by the thickness of the two stuffer's "sheet" metal... maybe like .030 from bearing to bearing. Is that what he's showing? A little surprised Husky wouldn't just use the same crank with "shims".

The 562 crank is a mm or two longer on the clutch side and won't fit a clutch cover.  I built a 560 out of a used 562 and set of used 555 cases only to find out the crank is too long. I didn't try the stuffer because I take them out because I think these saws are stronger in hardwoods without the stuffers.  IIRC to convert a 562 to small mount you need a 555 case & crank, chain plate, and a 550/545 clutch cover.

I sold my 562s and bought a 555 with a set of 562 transfers from a junker cylinder and couldn't be happier.
