Title: Husqvarna 372xp
Post by: Cut4fun on February 24, 2011, 03:14:24 pm
I took this 372 in trade and noticed a little more oil was coming from the clutch area then i thought it should. After inspecting there was a fine crack under bar plate where the old style bolt adjuster would have been in crankcase. This is where the bar oil is seeping when running and under pressure.

I need to get a close up pic to you guys can see.

Any ideas on sealing? I'm thinking a fine coat of JB in crack or seal all.

I would slightly V out the crack, and then scrape it up real good around it, to give good adhesion for the JBWeld.

I'm going to clean the oil tank out real good and see what the crack looks like from the inside too. Then try and put some kind of sealer from the inside also.

Use some really nasty solvents and give it some good heating to burn out as much oil as possible before applying whatever sealant.

One possible to use in a fine crack like this is Locktite. Seap it in and seal with some tape for a while, Locktite hardens from lack of air.

What concerns me about this crack is that it's in the bar mount area and sees some stresses.  I'm not sure you'd want to split the cases, but the best fix would be from inside.  Drill small holes at both ends of the crack, bevel the crack a little, rough up real good around it, and then JBWeld it.  I did a similiar repair to a 015 and my BIL is still using it.

Guys asking me for a 50mm 372. I have plenty but hard to conform to the rules that have been set.
Some of my saws have red in them, some have 362 365 tags, some have BB on 372 and 372xpg tags, some are already ported. But I do have plenty of 50mm stock tops and crankcases they could go on. Just replace the tags with a 372xp tag.  Husky tags are known to come off and get lost.  ;)

Few I have left.

Post by: Cut4fun . on March 31, 2011, 06:34:59 pm
I still dont see why a 2171 cant play too, same dang saw as 372xp  ???.

Heck even hybridized 2171 crankcase with all orange besides the crankcase is a 372 to me and it already has a stock 50mm on it.    Dont matter to me anyhow. I was just going to send saws to guys to use with 50mm tops.  No biggie, they can set right back on the shelves  ;D.

I think I'm going to get in on the porting fun too, I've gotta make a couple calls to see if I can scrounge up a pile of parts to make into a 372/371/2171/362/365/2071/2163 saw. It should be interesting to see what sort of stuff shows up at that GTG.
Title: Re: Husqvarna 372xp

Sounds like Terry changed his mind and letting Jreds 2165 2171 2071 etc and 365 etc in long as 50mm bore.  8) 8)   

tlandrum2002  = folks i dont mind if you use 365 371xp 372xp 372xpw bottom ends or the jred counter parts as long as nobody whines about all the saws not being the same. but you must use the 50mm cylinder with the apprpriate intake and carb for the 372xp all other rules being in effect concerning how you build it. i said from post #1 that rules were subject to change. so by all means run whatch u brung. im not trying to exclude anyone,hell this is for fun and bragging rights. and for people to really be able to get a feal for the differences in how perticular builders do things. not looking under the hood,just seat of the pants differences.

I would think so too, but it sure it fun having a hot ported saw. Personally I don't yet but I got that 394 up and running good more then enough saw for me. I might mod the muffler and adjust the squish some but that is about all I will do with it.

I'm glad I found a good complete saw to use for the buildoff. I got an 09 model in new shape to use and I'll probably put an xpw topend on it after the buildoff.

Luckily I found a good complete saw, it'll be getting a similar port job to my other 372, but with all the running hardware intact.

Just thought of something. Couldn't it be a 371 tank on a 372xpg ?  I dont know what the difference in the 2 tanks would be to know.
Title: Re: Husqvarna 372xp
Post by: Cut4fun on May 21, 2011, 01:47:28 pm
Well I got one question. I just finished putting everything back together on the 372xpg last night and I was short 1 ring.  I know racers and hot woods ported saws go with top ring and leave bottom ring out.

What would it hurt on a work saw to leave the bottom ring out till I get inside it again with new rings? 



Title: Re: Husqvarna 372xp
Post by: man of stihl on May 21, 2011, 03:06:49 pm
IMO. That second ring is just along for the ride anyhow.

Running other 372's now sure makes me appreciate how that PP372 ran.

1 top ring for now on 50mm piston. Breaking in at 13K and some dull stihl rs chain in 3/8 and 8T sprocket rim. Wood is some punky old poplar I have laying on hand to use.

All I use for my main saw in my tree service now is my 372XP with 16" b/c. I always have on hand a 22" b/c if needed but not very often I need it. The 395- 32" will handle the bigger stuff and my little 338XPT with .325 chisel on narrow kerf 13" bar does my main aerial work. My 346XP NE stays at home.

The 372 is a superb saw with the quick nice handling 16" b/c. Also alot less rocking out the chain with the short bar too, touch up with the file is quick.   I'm  itching to try out a 562XP when available to replace the 346.

My older brother raced Jonsered 80s in the 1970s  with the bottom ring removed, won him alot of races.

371/2 prolly the best saws ever built?

Advantage of the single ring is less friction making higher rpm. The disadvantage is durabilty and a slight gain of crankcase volume but the added rpm / hp makes up for the difference, especially if only used for a short chainsaw race.
Yes the 371/372 has come along ways from the 266/268/272. That little extra stroke length of the 372 seems to be the final design improvement along with the air injection that makes these saws so strong.
BTW I know a fellow down the street who has a brand new 1992 272XP that has never cut a stick of wood. Once a year he idles it for a few minutes to keep it limbered up. I'm tempted to buy it from him.

Hey guys I just got back from a out of town job run. Thanks for posting the pics Kevin, yes I can get that saw for $300 thats all the old fellow wants for it. The saw was passed down to him from his deceased brother inlaw who never had a chance to use the saw.
Its almost too nice to use for work getting  it dirty seeing it can be an excellent collector saw. My saws are used  to their full capacity. But I can keep this one on my shelf for only $300.
I think of the 272XP as a factory big bore 268XP with a few extra improvements, with its outboard clutch I think of it as a super handling oversized 346XP.

Redneck crankcase splitter (person with time). Having time on my hands from having walking pneumonia for 6th day.  Breathing good enough  to get it apart WITHOUT the $55 + $10 shipping oem crankcase splitter. Still going to break down and get one some day. Just rednecking it and no homemade splitter made either.  8)

365 special crankcase tag.  ;)

Could somebody give me some redneck tricks for getting the old crank bearings out of the case? Hopefully someone has a trick that is easier then the way I  do it.

Title: Re: Husqvarna 372xp
Post by: Cut4fun . on May 28, 2011, 03:23:40 pm
I never thought of  using a  vise.

I just changed them out. Heat oven to 200 degrees. Put both halves in. Pull one out and used socket to drive out. Put back in oven after cleaned up. Pull other one out drive out with socket. Put back in and pull the first one out and use socket to drive the new bearing in. Same thing on next one.


Will have to try the vise method sometime. Thanks for slick trick.

Its been many years since I had to change out a bottom end but I did just like Art does.... vise and sockets.. Didn't even use heat or cold. I still have the original flywheel/ case puller that came with one of my Jonsereds I bought back in the mid 1970s. Came with the saw because of the routine maintenence the saw needed with its poiints [about every 6 mths of 8 hr a day logging.]

Didnt have any seals on hand, being I sent my last set to Fla to help a guy out in a hurry.  So went ahead and installed crank without seals. Last one I did I installed seals first.

What do you guys think is easier way to do it? I like the idea of no seals in due to not having to worry about flipping a lip. Whats your guys opinion?

Title: Re: Husqvarna 372xp
Post by: Cut4fun . on June 15, 2011, 06:36:44 pm
Got the seals in today. Glad I ordered 2 sets for 2 saws.  :-[

Question.   On the clutch side seal or any seal for that matter if you happen to not get it even in case and try and straighten it up and the seal is then set to deep  :-[. How do you get the seal re-set right?  I couldn't figure out a way to get it out safely and ruined a $15 seal by pulling it out and just putting other new seal back in.

On the clutch side of the 365 372 you have that metal bushing that slides inside the seal. Wasnt any room left to enter in seal and would create a leak.

I will get IPL and word in a moment. 

Page 4 H pic of  bushing 503967001 goes inside seal.

Was putting another 372 together, but had to stop when the 50mm piston I thought I had turned out to be a 52mm big bore piston. Now I got 3 52mm pistons for 1 52mm BB372 cylinder.

So I went and got another BB372and  putting av in and fixing crack in bar plate area on the one 372  that leaks a little when full. 

Just killing time today.  ;D

BB372 is potty trained again.

So far the fix with SealAll is holding on the saw that started this thread. Filled it up and set and no leaks. Put plate back on and b+c chain and ran it no leaks. Now to get a good test of cutting firewood some day to see how it holds up.

 :'(  Well I thought I finally had enough parts to put my last 372 together that has been waiting  on the shelf.

Took everything out to make a parts list  :o. She still has a  ways to go, so back in the box she goes.

Good thing about it is I found parts I forgot about. Like a extra 362xp piston etc.  Also have 2 BB 372 pistons too, to trade or help others out with if needed, 1 new in the box complete kit and one used like new with no rings.

Quote from: HolmenTree
372 The only complaint is when heavy bucking the chips don't clear from the sprocket cover well enough and the chain jams up solid in the bar rails and sprocket nose, and it takes a bit of rubbing the chain back and forth on the log to free the chain up. Does any one else have this problem?

Just throwing this out there for you. There was a standard and wide cover option for those saws. I researched and learned about the wide cover when wanting more chip clearance for a 5ci 372 racesaw.


I'll ask 660 to post info or I'll dig the part number for you.  ;)

In case you forget the number, it is the cover for the current 372 XPW  (the XT style saw)

The older 372 XPW with the 375 cylinder from 2007 had a regular cover.

Hello Niko its good to talk to you again. Yes I have proven to myself that my 272XP noodles much better with its outboard clutch then my inboard 372XP.

The design of the chain adjuster on the 372xp may be a larger issue regarding noodling than the inboard clutch - just a thought, but it has been "rotating" in my mind for several years..... ;D

  Well I gotta say the superior balance and handling of the 272XP far out weighs what little disadvantage it's front mount adjuster screw offers.
 Come to think about it my 2009 395XP's front screw works just fine or Husqvarna would have changed that if it was a problem.

Well, the main differences between the 371 and 372 was the side adjuster and beefier case on the 372 - that adjuster is not one of the great features of the 372, more like an afterthought - but it works surpricingly well ,considering that.... ;D

Took one of the 372's out in the yard at the house today and after adjusting the carb, I used it to prune a few limbs in a Silver maple, a pin oak, and a blue spruce. Lifting it up high with that 24" bar is a killer for me. Not my pick of a pruning chainsaw.

I wanted to give it a little exercise as it has had a new ring in it recently and has not been used. I figure when I get ready to really use it that it will be used hard.

I cleaned it up and put it away.

Just realized I have no stock 372's left.

 Time to get my parts needed list together and get the parts off the shelf and out of the box.  Maybe I should  put a green gas cap on it just to mess with ones mind.  ;) :D ;D

Before putting in box and stored away.

Just piddling here and there with this 372 project.

Like new piston and cylinder with crosshatch and witness lines still. Like new crankshaft etc. I just hope it runs as good as the last 372 50mm I did.

Need a bunch of little stuff if any has any to get rid of or trade. Just let me know. I'll post in wanted a list later.

Well I just couldnt wait any longer for the 2 parts I have ordered on such a nice day and a little free time. I stole the intake flange and intake sleeve from the 362xp and put on this latest 372xp project.

660mag had just stopped by when I was buttoning  it up and fired it  to tune and stick in a test piece of black walnut. Feels like another good runner.  8) ;D

I got a couple of those bars too Kevin, got them from Baileys real cheap. But look close at the bar nose joint and you will probably see where the bar was ground down to match the tip, probably why they blew them out cheap.

You must have got some seconds or something that was being clearanced out IMO. All of my 050 bars have been perfect, no grinding to fit anywhere.  Very Nice fit and finish.  8)

I have looked for what you said on all my Carlton bars German made, Japan made. GB made and I cant find any grinding  ???

Repo 372 I'll call it.  ;)

I think I received a 372 from fedex today. Wife had it set in the kitchen. When I got home and seen and smelled box.   :o :o

It was covered with a clear plastic bag over whole box. Guessing fedex did this.  Bar was hanging out the end with only few inches keeping it from going on out. Plus plastic bag.

The smell of gas was so strong I just took it to the barn. The saw seemed to rattle back and forth in box.  I can only imagine what I may find inside.

Might want to take photo's of the box,ect. beforehand just in the event you might make a claim for damage.  Its happened to me before, and pictures did help.  When I sell a saw with bar, I usually ship the bar in seperate flat container.   I have had many saws come to me with this problem.  Hope its OK.

I cover both ends of bars in cardboard and then duct tape the crap out of it. Then I duct tape the bar to bottom of box.  Little time and effort saves a bunch of BS IMO.

I was told by a guy that work for usps one time when he opened one of my boxes. He said it looked like I went to college fro shipping. LOL

Nothing awkward on this one.   I had a friend that was owned a 372 for a long long time.  I seen the other guy selling a 372. I sent a PM. I had 372 owed shipped to me so I can get it to my friend.  I got my friends approval first to do this. 
I just hate seeing some not follow up and take advantage and not pay their debt owed, especially to honest type folks  I know my friend is.

Like the friend says, anything in there is better then nothing.  Otherwise he may have never seen the saw in the future.

Finished opening the lane up and noticed the box pulling plow back in. Thought what the heck was frozen already from hooking up plow etc.

Yep half full of mix. Didnt even check bar oil because none leaked out.  I have heard that has happened before with very bad results.   ;) :D



Loading pics now. 

372xp HD filter set up. PSI feels good. Looks good IMO. Just like what I used to sale for $400 with no hesitation from buyers. Guess the OE are bringing little more so new owner will be happy in the end. b+c 058  ::)  18"  look like new chain.

Glad to have helped this friend out and now hope he dont mind if I keep it a few months till warmer to test and go through it with a check over.

To the owner of above saw. Quick check over, dumping mix putting my mix in. Setting carb rich side on everything. Ran some and couldnt get any type of issue to show up, IMO ready.

Set super rich to clear up in cut.

P+C looked like new IMO through plug hole. Oiler worked great, AF HD looks new.

I'm calling it a good saw for you.  Dump the mix and bar oil out to start airing.

Guy with 3120 picked up and dropped off a woods ported 2013 372XP x-torq. He said he has tried tuning it and cant get it to idle. Took to a dealer and they couldnt fix it either even after saying they did. So now I have my shot at it.
Whats cool is he said a non internet saw shop guy ported for $120. Now that is the kind of prices I was used to seeing through 2010. Will get pics later.

Wont idle shuts of when it sets it down.     Ideas?  WAG  =  out of adjustment carb,  main nozzle bad,  tank vent.  Any other folks think of stuff?

Yep check it with out the bar and chain and then with the bar and chain to see if the clutch is bad and causing it.   
                         ----                                        -----

If clutch is good then check for air leak or carb problems.   
Title: Re: Husqvarna 372xp

I would guess out of adjustment. But could very well be and air leak. I would check the cylinder screws to make sure they are tight.
Title: Re: Husqvarna 372xp
Post by: Cut4fun . on February 06, 2018, 08:17:54 pm
Does it without and with bar.

Other ideas given me in CR group was transfer covers might be leaking if they were removed and other carb not on right as one guy has seen that.   

So will see when I get to this one.

I believe the transfer covers have a formed o-ring in a groove that seals them.   If one got pinched when installing that would sure cause a problem.

I found 1 carb bolt really loose. 1 not real tight.  Intake clamp around boot loose.  Carb out of adjustment on L and I IMHO.  Checked cylinder bolts and snugged as they moved hair not much.

Idles  all day now.   

Noticed yesterday when I pointed straight up it shut off. Also had rolled side to side and pointed down.
Today did same thing after about 20mins of idling and stayed running even pointed up.

Now to wait on a 394 he said is next. ;)

Will load pics in a bit.

Worked on a 395 that both the carb screws had loosed up enough for the metal sleeve in the intake to rub grooves in the face of the intake manifold. Replaced the manifold as I was afraid it would leak. Loose screws are always some thing to look for in a husky. I would say the newer the saw is the more likely it has loose screws somewhere that cause it to not run right. Just my opinion.

2 days ago

This one was shutting off when picked up too. Just like you hit the kill switch. I checked and cleaned coil connections, tightened everything and back by stop switch you could see where it was hitting on the AV spring. Also I rerouted the wire going to coil from switch. Plus fixed the bent tab at switch. Isnt doing it now. Could the tab grounding on AV spring shut the saw off?

 I still think is puddling in intake a hair though. Will see after kit.

today

 Looks like rebuild kit took care of the issue.

Tell you something I found on the walkerized muffler mods.  They take 2 short studs and put a bolt in with nuts and braze them shut. Then just braze the support.
While testing the saw and finished I shook saw side to side etc and could here a banging going on.  I text guy and told him I wanted to pull muffler and see whats going on in the saw.
Well one of the nuts was banging around in the muffler and the stud piece no where to be found. Hoping it went forward and out of muffler.
Anyhow I said you want me to leave that other one or use a punch and get it out of there too. He agreed with my thinking and get it out of there.

Still bugs me not knowing where that thread short stud ended up though.

New carb kit and installed a missing carb sleeve. Somebody just rolled up a piece of paper for the red plastic sleeve.

Cut great today with 24" buried after I sharpened the chain.

This is the 372xp OE that was muffler modded and portered by walkers in Vancouver Canada.

Post by: joe_indi on March 01, 2018, 11:41:33 am
ouch! That is a bad crack right where the stress of the bar and chain would be the maximum (I suspect). Also, that is the area that would see a lot of oil. No resin by itself would hold out long. Some physical reinforcement is required. Maybe shave off the surface in a rectangle on both sides of the crack. Cut a steel sheet of, #22 to fit snugly in the rectangle. Drill holes and thread them with tapering at the top and fit tapered screws so that the plate is held down with nothing projecting up. Then clean the whole area , apply some slow setting epoxy and tighten down the screws. Do this for the crack in front too. Once the epoxy is set smoothen the area down on the bar side so that the side plate seats properly

Took this 2013 372xp x-torq in trade today.  He has dual ported the muffler since I saw it this winter. 
Also got the new full wrap and big dawgs with the half wrap and small dawgs.
Has had a new oem topend put on it by local husky dealer in the past couple years and a  had cleaned the ports up some.
It will be for sale.

Husky 372 OE that was woods ported. Thought would dig a little deeper to see why it has such low psi tad under 120psi. Ring looked fine and caber. End gap was good in cylinder when checked.

Some scuffing in cylinder. But the porting or lack of is what got me. 😲 The base gasket couldnt have been oem. .022 think and come off in pieces. Never ever recall any of mine coming off like that in years past. The squish without gasket .030. So it had .052 squish with base gasket. 😲

Reringed anyway with new caber and gasket delete. Hopefully it will at least cut with the stock NE 372 and 576 that out cut it in past testing. Was with 24" bars buried in dry ash back then. Guy uses it has his limber trim saw.

Oh he brought a new aftermarket muffler someone modded on ebay. The triple port oem one was shot.

Ran it through a couple heat cycles last night. Hope to cut with it and then after cooling check psi. 
Took throttle good etc. Seemed snappy and sounded good. Hopefully it is good in the cut later.

Ran and cut fine in the dry ash. If I had more time should have compared to my stock 445.

Wait for it to cool down to see if gained any psi with delete. Even though new ring. Feels better anyways.

Went from 116/117psi before to a hair over 130psi. Will get better once some tanks run through it. Calling it good for what she is.
I would just call it a warmed over stock saw with muffler mod. Runs pretty good for what it is.
