Went through the new to me 385 and all checked out. Only thing missing was right side fastener for brake handle. Found one in my misc bin. I quit pulling it over after it hit 150psi. Looks like new inside looking through plug hole. So didnt pull muffler.
Being I only have small dry ash on hand to test for now. 3/8 8T and 16" LOL

Reading. Is the 385 rev limited coil 13K?    Swear it had black coil which to me is unlimited from past saws. 

Max setting in manual say.

385 12.5K   2700
390 13.5K   2700

Bar oiler

Recommended settings:
Bar -15":
1 turn from the closed position.
Bar 15" -18":
2 turns from the closed position.
Bar 18" -24":
3 turns from the closed position.
Bar 24" -:
4 turns from the closed position

Husqvarna dealer from GA Onan18 says

Between the 385 and 390 I would pick the 385 all day every day. The timing numbers and port shapes were almost perfect from the factory because it was designed from day one to be what it was. The 390 was more of an afterthought "We have to get in the 90cc class to compete with the MS 660" so it is essentially a factory big bore and they had to compromise on the port shapes to make room for the larger piston. Also, while 1mm does not sound like much, the 390 piston is MUCH HEAVIER than the 385 piston. As a result the 390 is known for killing cranks, in as little as one year in commercial duty even with decent care and good oil.
