new Metal Clamp 350 353 346 etc
« on: March 17, 2015, 03:01:46 pm »
OK guys I hate to admit it but yesterday I was having a bad day and this new updated metal clamp with not helping my day. 

I usually can put this on in a few tries. But for some reason this one with new partition and metal clamp was knocking me out forever.

Anyone have a a trick up their sleeve that I am missing?

Like I said never had a problem before, just a tad struggle and wham-o together. But yesterday this one was difficult to say the least. In the end I got it clamped, but now I have to pull it back off for another used cylinder I just ordered. 

I know to use a 372 or a poulan 330 clamp, but this one came in the kits for a customers saws.

SB info

The new partition wall is made up of polyamide with 30 % fibre glass.
The new clamp is a hardened steel clamp. The new material and the design of the clamp reduce the risk of deformation and the subsequent risk of leakage.

Was tricky for me when I installed one too.  Can't remember what I came up with to do it.  There is also a NAPA Auto CV boot clamp that works......and will be what I use on the next saws I I work on.  Will get the # for you.  The PP330 clamp was backordered last time I tried to order it.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Now the poulan metal clamps going NLA. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I got another used small intake for poulan yesterday and it came with the clamp. But I didnt want to give it up. So I fought it.
I also bought a new 372 updated clamp for my own.  Little different then old one.

I tried a Husky 365 boot clamp on a 350 before giving in and ordering the partition/clamp update kit.  365 clamp was too small.  Dunno if it was the same # as a 372 clamp.  Was what I had laying around to try....

That's the kit I put on my 350 also Kevin. I can't recall what I used to put it on, want to say it was some needle nose pliers but not positive. Luckily it was a one and done for me. Sure does get on there tight. Hope you get it together without much ado. I can't remember if I did it with the cylinder off or on??

I had to do it with the cylinder off.  Tried first (without success) to get that damn clamp locked with the jug on the saw.

The NAPA boot clamp is 6865833.  I haven't used it yet, but I trust the fellow that gave me the #.  He has used it with success.  The description on the NAPA site sez that it has an installed diameter of 7".  They must mean circumference...

I've done with cylinder on and off before.  Just for some reason this one got me.

I ended up using locking needle nose so it couldnt get away from me. Then pushed with flat tip screwdriver to latch.

All the past ones just regular ole needle nose.

I was thinking that too.  Those usually take a tool that looks like a pair of hog ring pliers.  I'll ask my buddy what he used.  He gave me that # today.  Last time he sent me the # (which I lost), I thought I remembered it being a screw clamp...
