Title: Husqared 3171
Post by: Chris_Elliott on December 19, 2014, 03:32:35 pm
Some of you may have seen this saw on another site, but I figured it would be appreciated quite a bit here for it's "redneck repair" aspect.

I had a bunch of parts for this series saw, and a incomplete 371xp, and an incomplete 2171 parts saw.
The 371 had the tank mount busted off the case. The 2171 had the flywheel side smashed up.
What to do?
Build it up, that's what!

This project was more a challenge for myself to see if I could complete a case split\bottom end repair. I'd never done it before, and figured this would give me good practice.

It came out pretty good I'd say. It runs better than it looks  ;D

Working on it. Photobucket doesn't seem to be cooperating very well with me at the moment...

So I had a Husqvarna handlebar, and the Jonsered fuel tank. They don't work together, right? The angle and mounts are different.
Well each of those parts was good, and I wasn't about to buy any new parts, so I MADE it work. Total redneck repair  ;D

Bottom mounts up just fine
(http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i371/chris_elliott1/Husqared%203171/DSCF1518.jpg) (http://s1090.photobucket.com/user/chris_elliott1/media/Husqared%203171/DSCF1518.jpg.html)

The side mounts is what presents the problem. The Jonsered handlebar is angled at the bottom, and the holes are in different locations. The bottom hole matched up, and I just drilled a hole for the top tank mount and the cylinder AV mount. The handlebar might be a little bit wonky, but I've seen handlebars bent ALOT worse and still ran on saws.

Isn't the first time this has been done. Seem to come across about one a year.

Congrats on the fortitude to carry through with it. Should work fine.

It runs like a muffler modded 372, as to be expected.
I'm happy, I built up a 70cc worksaw out of parts I had nearly all of laying around. On the cheap.

Thanks! I figured if I messed up the bearings or cases, what the heck, not out alot of $ or a very valuable saw. I doubt I would ever sell it.

I didn't figure it was the first time this had been done. But I've never seen pictures of the mixed crankcase halves.
Maybe that's because anyone who's done it was to embarrassed to post pictures  :D I don't care!

I've seen them for sale on Ebay with two different case halves.

I've seen, in person, a crossed up one but both halves were the same.

Good job.

One of the coolest rebuilds I have seen. Using jred and husky crankcase halves. Then able to make a husky handle work on a jred tank. 


Way to go with the  Redneck ideas.

Now to redneck the recoil pieces missing. ;)

I got an Etech gas cap I could put on there  ;D I bet I could find someplace to slap some JB weld on too!

Yup, I gotta see what I can find to fix up the grills. I think we might have a junk craftsman weed trimmer I could rob some plastic off of.

Another reason for doing this, is so when guys argue on facebook groups that Husqvarna and Jonsered are totally different saws, I can post up this bad boy. BOOM! Check this out! Argument invalid  ;D

You can pick out my Jonserusky in this photo.  I later made a 2171 from the crankcase and used the orange stuff to put together another 372.

Cut4fun went and spray painted his green caps. With the saw setting there, I didn't notice?

It's a pity there isn't a Poulan Pro version - that could have added another color.... ;D

Looking at that 372 with the red tank and green cap, I think I'm kinda glad my plastics are faded, dirty and scratched. That one REALLY stands out!
