If memory is right it was the poulan 330 3450 piston in the 335 cylinder.  Remember it being all red.

The saw still cuts great.   It was different from the regular 335.

What I was thinking Roger in the far away future. Being I just dont have time yet to do the project saws or the interest yet.   
When I pull the 3450 54cc p+c to put on the 60cc p+c, I was thinking of taking the piston from 3450 and mating with a 335 cylinder I have here and putting in the grey 3.0 3000 or 2700.

That would be interesting.   I never even thought of trying it.

Should be same set up in the predator 335 you have.

I'm lost.

Its the same thing. Not understanding? 

2700 3.0 are all same size as the pred 335 etc powerhead wise. pred 335 has 3450 330 piston in the 335 cylinder. So same size still.  So no big changes. Heck factory done it, so no big deal IMO me wanting to throw a 3450 p in 335 c on on same size saw JMO.  ???
Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: 3000 FPS on November 07, 2014, 11:57:37 pm
I was thinking 3450 cylinder and a 3450 size saw compared to a 335.   The 335 because of the air filter and cylinder cover design is smaller.   My misunderstanding. 
Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: Cut4fun . on November 08, 2014, 12:02:50 am
I thought we had switched tracks somewhere. Thats why I was asking.

 I am just using the extra 3450 piston out of the 3450 when I put the 60cc 3750 topend on 3450.  Then make one of the 46cc-49cc a 54cc predator type motor using 3450 p and 335 c.
Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: Cut4fun . on November 08, 2014, 12:05:36 am
If I was going to try the other I would put the 60cc on one. But with the 3500 365 around. I just dont see the use of doing that on a 2700-3300 saws.
 I still think all it would take is slotting and maybe crankcase open some for p skirt clearance.

Just putting the poulan predator 335 stuff in this thread.  Hoggwood found one for sale up in Canada too. Will post pics. he said over by Tim aka fossil. ;)

I got the 335 Predator back together and took it for a quick check.   Saw runs good and I think I will stay with the 3/8, 16", .050 bar and chain on it.    I did the usual muffler mod, dropped the cylinder, advanced the timing, widened the intake and exhaust.    I put a new ring in it and cleaned up all the carbon from the piston and cylinder.    After running it and letting it cool down I got a 200 psi out of it so once again I am very pleased about that.   I like building these to add torque not neccessarily RPM.    Since cut4fun put up the before pictures I will provide the after pictures.

That's a very sharp looking variant of this series.  I like it a lot (OK I'm partial to red/black saws, especially when they're Poulans). 8)

Man my bench was a mess when I took that.  Need to take some fresh pics of the saws so I can stop using the messy bench pics.....

That is pretty cool Hoggwood.   I have not seen many of the predators around.   Nice find.

Hey Aaron I think the red and black is good looking on a saw also.

I agree Roger.  Especially when they have an engine turned bar on 'em.

I'm going to have to do that for my 'looker' Craftsman 2.3PS/VL.

Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: 3000 FPS on July 19, 2015, 12:17:54 am
That was a wire brush and a drill press.   It seems to stay with the bar even though I have used it.   

I just brought that saw home from Cheyenne where I had it stored for awhile.    I might take it on my next trip to the mountains when I go for more firewood.
Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: Eccentric on July 19, 2015, 01:00:13 am
That's how I'm going to do it.  Just a small cup brush in the drill press and a few beers.  Will be an old Windsor Mini-Pro bar for my Craftsman/Poulan.

I had mine out about 2 weeks ago.   I was over at the brother in law cutting up some rounds for him to be split.    We did 2 1\2 cords in one day.   The 335 ran excellent.    You really do not see those 335 predators very often.    Pretty cool you found another.
Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: Cut4fun . on November 05, 2018, 03:15:50 pm
Not me another guy on CRG wanted info on them from me in PM.  Wanted to know if he should buy it. I was like yes. He got it for $80.
Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: Cut4fun . on November 29, 2018, 10:17:55 pm
Another one.
Looks like he has the wider 365 3500 air filter cover on it. Maybe different cylinder cover too.



Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: 3000 FPS on November 30, 2018, 11:56:28 am
Never seen that before.
Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: Cut4fun . on November 30, 2018, 01:05:50 pm
Never seen that before.

He did it and think he said he put a 49mm topend on it aka 365 3500. 
Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: 3000 FPS on December 03, 2018, 12:36:28 pm
Maybe it was a 365 to start with and he changed some of the covers to look like a 335 predator.   
Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: Cut4fun . on December 03, 2018, 04:01:13 pm
It appears to have the black crankcase too though.   But could have been painted.

Guy I know suppose to be trading for it. A non running shin 377 and $40 boot for the red saw. 
Being a collector type I tried to explain this saw was no where near original. Time will tell.
Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: 3000 FPS on December 04, 2018, 06:29:09 pm
Even the gas tank and handle has none of the characteristics of a 335 predator.   
Title: Re: poulan predator 335
Post by: Cut4fun . on December 05, 2018, 08:04:02 am
Ah yes on the tank good catch. The presence lever and trigger are not red either.

The guy got it anyways.
Was on a different case again. That is what the guy was doing Roger. Just pulling the recoil and clutch covers off and putting them on saws.  Least this time it was on a yellow 335. Now he has a clutch cover with chain brake and hand guard.  :D :D

He cant say he only collects originals now.   He told me that once when I offered him a NOS topend for a 3450.

One of the mods in the chainsaw repair group bought out a closed shop. 

One was in the piles of saws he got from the place.

Here are the pictures of a Poulan 335 starter cover and flywheel.

That confirms what I saw on other one Roger. Thanks.

PP330 etc style pulley and flywheel.

Since I am not 100%  on this anymore.  My ole brain is starting to confuse all the cylinder numbers etc etc.

I got some stuff out to compare this morning.

I got one 3.3 chrome black blue I could pull and a NOS Pred 335 cylinder. Just from what I can recall on IPL they both come back to the 67 last numbers.

I think I have a 3450 pulled right now and will run bolts threw cylinders to compare.

But like I said. Not 100% on anything anymore so cant swear by it.

4 of the runners and one non runner on bench. These are my go to small saw now.

Then =

Ok get this while fresh and just checked.

The blue black 3.3 chrome and the Pred 335 same cyl's and base space. The 3450 is larger base spacing

Threw a bare bore in there beside the NOS pred cyl for comparison pic. Back side right bare.

Enough for the ole brain till I get some more coffee.
