Is a 351 the same saw as a 353, but with the 44mm open port cylinder used on the early 350's?  I've never seen a 351 in person or in a Husky catalog.  A friend just told me he got one in a load of saws.

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.

That's the way the OEM's look to me.  44mm open port

That's correct. 351 had the same P&C as the early 350. 351 to 353, (or Jonny 2149 to 2152), mostly mirrored the changes that apply to the early and late 350/2150. (with the exception of the metal cased saws getting a flat top piston vs the dished piston in the plastic case saws)

There's actually several changes between early and late saws on this chassis. Different, (course vs fine) thread hardware. Different starter pulleys and springs. Different air filter holders on the metal cased saws. Nothing major, but stuff to watch for when mixing parts on project saws. The one to keep an eye on is the cylinder bolts though. At some point they went from a course thread to a fine thread. If you mistakenly get them mixed up you'll bugger up the threads in the case!

Simple to answer, YES!

The 351 didn't last long, before it was replaced by the 353.

Thanks for the info. So would I be able to put a 353 flat piston in this 350 for more power? I got this saw cheap and want to play around with it a little.

There's a Meteor piston for the 353 that you can use.
