Let me know if you still need the husqvarna 385 service manual. 

I will need to load it off my CD to my puter then email it to you.

Great thread and pics.  I bought a 395 XP off of ebay about 4 years ago.  (Guy shipped it USPS with a 1/2 tank of gas in it.  Post Office people were not real happy about that...but, that's another story.)  Very similar saw.  I didn't pull the jug.  But, I had to replace the whole brake assembly/ right side cover, replace all the tubing, Oil pump, strainers...all that kind of high mileage stuff.   

Clutch tool I made out of a socket using an angle grinder like Cut4fun said.  Works like a champ.

If you peel off that black plastic air cowling around the flywheel you can get a bearing puller in there.   Take it easy on the wire keepers.  They're little tabs of plastic and will break easily. (Don't ask me how I know that.    :-[)
I'm sure there are tricks to make a home made flywheel puller.  but, I bought  one about 15 years ago and there's no getting around how valuable it is when I need it.  Get one that you can configure for three jaw or two jaw operation.  Get a little tension and tap the puller shaft with a leather or soft blow mallet.   If you're gentle with it, a little Kanokroil around the shaft will help.  I have heated stubborn flywheels with a heat gun.   I'm always timid with flywheels. 

Looking forward to seeing the rest of your project.  I'm sure I'll learn a lot from the veterans as you go through it.  Good luck.

This front AV mount seems to have a problem.  It has play in it, where it meets the tank.  The spring is not broken, but something isnt right about it.  The pics are an attempt to show how much it can move (probably almost 1/2")

There is a plastic threaded boss on the plastic that the spring threads onto.

See if you can tighten the spring onto the plastic boss? You may have to remove the crankcase from the tank to get to it?

I still need the manual. I already have the IPL.

If you can, email them to me.  I believe my account set to receive emails from users, so it should work.

Thanks!

I'm going to continue disassembling the saw soon. I'll keep the pictures coming.

Got the manual.  Thank you very much!

What does everyone think about the piston in this saw?  Should it be replaced?

The piston has some skirt wear and it would be best if you could put a new Meteor piston in it.

However, the saw will run to clean the piston and put new Caber rings on it but down the road you may have a skirt breaking or spit back through the carb.
