372XT

From watching the ground man of a tree service, he pushed the compression release, Pulled the choke on, and started pulling . . .

It never hit a lick. (by then it was flooded)

So the supervisor got over there and pulled until he was worn out. They put the saw back in the bin on the truck.

The next day I was across the street, the supervisor started it (may have been a different saw?) right up, like on the third pull, and finished the job.

I don't own a XT but from reading, it seems your chances are better if you don't use the compression release.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

+1 No comp release better off to plug it.  I plugged all 5 365XT of mine and my 562.  You can miss the pop very very easy.

I just got done tuning a guys jred 2172. It had starting issues. Takes many pulls to start it cold (8 or 9 pulls). And he said if you shut it down hot you have to wait till the saw cools down to restart. So taking spikes advice I richened the low jet. The screw was on the limiter but I have the tool to fix that. I opened it up about a quarter turn. The saw started in 3 pulls cold. I cut a load of wood with it this morning and shut it down multiple times hot. It started up with 1 pull every time.
The guy took it to the dealer twice before he gave it to me. All the dealer did was he plugged off the decomp but that didn't fix the starting issues.
 Thanks for the info here!

So I have a few gallons of mix through this xtorq to xp now.

Runs good and I am happy with the upgrade.

It can be fickle to adjust the carb, I think that comes from running this large a bore carb to cc's.
Once adjusted the throttle response is fine. No bog spots across the throttle range.

A little update after another couple months running this XT to XP conversion.

Ran good all winter. Had some warmer weather last week and it all of a sudden it went lean at idle during a removal.
I suspected a air leak so just shut it off and grabbed another saw to finish.

On tear down I found the muffler lose and the manifold leaking at both the carb junction and cylinder. Verified by starter fluid while running.
New muffler gasket
I coated both ends of the manifold with high heat RTV. Had the cylinder off so I could wipe the inside clean of any squeeze though of RTV.
Let dry over night and tuned the next day.

If I was building another I would seal the manifold connections right from the start. The 385 boot has to squeeze down quite a bit  on the cylinder, the 372xp cylinder clamp bottoms out. While the boot didn't move, I wondered if it was really sealed well on the first assembly.

So just a FYI if anyone else decides to do this upgrade/change.
