husky 365 xtorq 71cc model
« on: September 14, 2013, 11:33:41 pm »
ok maybe its just me but I can't find and new piston and jug anywhere aside from the dealer. I do not feel like paying $560 for just the parts from the local dealer. anyone got any leads on where to get one? baileys didn't have any
chainsaws are chainsaws but stihl runs through my veins

That is because it is a Xtorq.

The only after market piston & cylinder kits are for the old style 365 Special and 372XP. But you can get a 52mm big bore 76.4cc for these old ones.

The intake boot, carb, and choke lever are different on the old style. There are a few other differences too but they have no effect on a conversion.

You may only need a piston? Perhaps your cylinder could be cleaned up?

Well, it is either pay the big bucks for a new X-torq P&C or convert it to the old style after market style.

I doubt they ever make aftermarket X-torq for these for the design is due for a re-make and there wasn't enough installed base of 365/371 X-torqs to justify a after market X-torq piston & cylinder

I may have a jug but no piston. I will look for the jug and PM you. My thought is as the above you would be better off with a BB kit.

I picked up a XT P&C on Ebay a while back for $100 or so.  If your not in a hurry they do pop up ocassioally.  Agree w/others on the BBK for the least expensive way out.  You also might look @ a 372/375XPW P&C.  IIRC they are cheaper than an XT.

I used a Forester brand BBK from Ahlborn on my DolMak 6401.  It is a NiSi kit (Tiawan).  I had a NWP BBK in stock @ the time  chose the Forester it was better looking than the NWP.  Real happy with it.  Cost is about the same the Forester being cheaper w/my shop discount.  I need to place an order this week if I can help let me know.  PM for details.

Phil I notice your avatar is one of the saws from Madsen's. You work there by any chance?
