Seal looks good. I cleaned that all up looking.

I have my theory on why. But who knows.   

The gear threads were stripped  and not turning the pump. The drum where it goes into the worm gear was all stripped out. Just spinning on plastic.
 The clutch drum and clutch are a nice shade of midnight blue. The clutch bearing took a licking too.  Surprised more didnt happen to it.

Just hope I can get the worm gear tomorrow and find out if the pump is good or not.

Does the pump shaft turn freely?

IMO yes. Seems normal to me.

I'm thinking just lack of knowing and maintenance.     Owner  ( firewood cutter )  didnt even know it wasnt oiling till I showed him when he brought it in.

Figures. They show a worm gear in stock for the 455 between the 2 shops. But they cant locate it.   So on order.

Part # 537252601 pinion worm gear ordered on Mon and came in Fri. I was able to pick it up today and install.  Oiler works great after adjusting to max output and saw is ready to go cut some wood.

Funny part was they ordered 2 so they would have a extra on hand. I was like cool I'll take that one too and put it on my shelf.  ;D

It's Running 20" 3/8 oregon vanguard like the new poulan 2050 comes with.  My softwood piece today might have been only 8" and the walnut piece maybe 11" and it cut  good in that.  Not a real test. Need  little bigger to tell anything.

Fast forward to  evening.

Just went out to the secret wood  pile stash with 660mag and got a truck load of wood to test in, hard maple mostly.  Will have to see before it is picked up tomorrow afternoon.

I just cut  a 16" piece and 20" piece of hard maple with above chain set up. Saw felt smooth and cut as expected for it's cc size. I like this saw for a clamshell design way better then the 290 series by stihl. 

I then cut with the 55 I took in trade  ;) with a afm 46mm open port topend.  I was only running 15" .325 and stihl rsc chain on it.   If they were running same bar and  chain they would be close.    I dont have time to switch them back and forth right now. 

I then ran my 60cc poulan that has a hurt piston in it but still pulling 130psi with new ring and 455 had more toque in the cut then the old  3750 that  and the poulan 365. I guess I should pull out one of the new PP 330 I have.

The 455 was way smoother in the cut then all of the above saws I ran. It just needs a better chain then the vanguard IMO.

Sounds like the 455 is a good saw.
