No problem, that is what this site is all about.

You will only need a few tools to do the job. If you have the SM it has a list of those that are needed. Most of the work can be completed using only a 4mm Allen key, a 'T' handle works best.

You do not need to remove the starter to do the job however you will need to remove the bar/chain and the top handle. The hardest part is getting the rear AV spring off the old tank. Husqvarna makes a tool for this but a small diameter drift and a small plastic mallet works fine.

It is much easier to replace the fuel line/filter and the tank vent when the tank is off the saw so do these two jobs on your new tank before trying to install it.

Well, we in western NY are up to our azz in snow! I imagine the same in your area. How did you come out on replacing your tank/handle unit?

Or did you, like me waste the entire weekend moving snow?

Saturday was the last day of our shotgun deer season so I went out hunting. Sunday was spent moving snow all day. I am hoping to work on it one night this week after work.

No luck... Thought they'd be moving with the storm coming but I didn't pick up a fresh track until the afternoon. Finally got a look at one of the two but it was a doe. Looking forward to ML season now....

Since you will have the saw apart, you might consider replacing your piston rings. Breathe a little new life into the old girl. If you provide an email address I will send you the 365/372 shop manual to help you long.

Cut4fun provided a link for the manual which I have printed out; thanks anyway. The saw was purchased as being reconditioned; new cylinder, piston, rings, etc. My only problem (so far; fingers crossed) is the tank leaking. It runs great and has very good compression. I would like to work on the tank tonight, but it looks like I'll be moving snow again tonight when I get home. :(
