Husqvarna Crank bearings and crankshaft installation
« on: September 27, 2013, 09:17:02 am »
On another site I did a tutorial on the factory method and tools to do this. If anyone is interested, I will reconstruct it.

This is a chainsaw repair site so I can not think of a better place to post your tutorial?
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

OK, the next tutorial will be this one.

The idea is to take a 372 bottom end that is in need of bearings, seals etc and demonstrate how to use the Husqvarna factory tools recommended for this maintainence. There are techniques and factory supplied tools that the factory recommends for doing the work. We will actually do the work and demonstrate the tools as well as explain what the tools are actually doing for you.

Will not be complete teardown of the saw, we will start with an already stripped down saw, split the cases, remove the old bearings and seals, install new bearings and seals as well as reinstall and center the crank.

No Problem alsled, it is my pleasure! I get the subject for a tutorial and you get a rebuilt 372XP bottom end. Now all you need is a Hyway 372XP 52mm BB kit and a Stihl 064 piston and you will have quite the runner! A 52mm 272XP piston will also work but you will have to send it out to have the squish band cut, $40 from Mastermind, and you could hit 0.020 on the squish without a base gasket!

I have not yet gotten to do the thread because I have not yet come across a 372 saw in need of bottom end work. I did a quickie on FHC just to show the tool and how it works. If anyone has a 365/371/372 that needs bearings and wants it done PM me. I will do the work, supply new bearings/seals/gaskets for your saw just to do the tutorial. You pay shipping both ways. I only need the bottom end not the complete saw.
