This is what happens when shipper puts big saw in empty box with no padding of any kind. The case takes the bumps when they hit concrete etc bam crunch.
 Luckly I have been down this road on my poulan 415 that I bought in a box of parts when a tree won the battle.
So I will redneck fix it if you guys dont have a better idea on fixing the break.

Please if you are new to this. Take the time to pack the saws up right and protect them. Thanks.

That is always a worry of mine when buying something from someone I don't know. I try to double box and pad all I can in the box I use.

It is a weak area from the factory IMO.

This 415 in below link was broke in the same area and previous owner tried to have it welded and did NOT hold.
So I redneck fixed it and these cuts are being made after I removed the crappy welding job and fixed it my way. Still holding till this day.

If this shows up, here is my 475 in a piece of oak.

You can hear it still 4 stroking a bit when it comes out of the cut and its set at 14,500.

Then downloaded  http://www.finalmediaplayer.com/mp4-player.html

Will see if that will open the mp4 file.

That did the trick. I just didnt have a mp4 video player available on my puter.

Project 475 under way. Crankcase redneck fixed like I did the 415 long ago and still holding  8)  .

Was taking parts out of my 2077 2083 tank and broke the on/off switch wire connection.   :(  So might just throw the 425 tank on since the 425 needs new crank bearings and seals for it's rebuild.

My brain is tired and having a brain fart at the moment. What is the bore on the 475?   I need to order a ring.

Why your at refresh my memory on 415   445   475  505 bores.     I cant remember.  :-[
Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: Cut4fun on July 26, 2012, 06:31:51 pm
Some of Marks info to save.

Anyhow after some more searching I found that the part # for the 415-445 coil superceded to part # 544018401 which is a common coil on a bunch of Huskys like a 55 coil.

Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: Cut4fun . on July 26, 2012, 08:04:14 pm
Redneck = anything I can do on the cheap side without proper tools or equipment.

  In this case just a fix I do  being I cant Tig or Mig weld cases etc.   
Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: bnkz on July 26, 2012, 08:45:03 pm
Okay, but how did you fix break?
Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: Cut4fun . on July 26, 2012, 08:59:17 pm
I should have showed pics I guess. I did this to 415 and 475.  Drill small holes on either side of break in both pieces, about 4 on each side. Lace #12 bare copper house wire and tighten each lace across.

Then on 415 due to someone trying to weld and blew it out I had to use JB to fill void then use steel putty and mold to both sides.

475 I was able to skip the JB part and go straight to the steel putty and mold on both sides.

 Something like this.  http://www.loctiteproducts.com/p/mech_spec_epxy/overview/Loctite-Metal-Filled-Epoxy-Putty.htm  or this   http://www.dual-star.com/index2/Service/quiksteel_epoxy_putty.htm

Thinking these are the mm of bores I was looking for last night.

505 = 54mm

475 = 52mm

445 =  50mm

415 425 =  48mm

Send it to me I will weld it for you.  I am still taking on practice pieces.  Just split the case and send the half that needs repair.  I have done 5 clutch covers, 1 crank case, and a bad crack on the bottom of my 335, and a hole in my 3750.  All have gone well so far so I see no reason why yours would not also.  The piece is very thin from looking at your pictures and will take a careful amount of current control to get it right without blowing it apart, but I do not believe it would be any worse than some of the clutch covers I have done.

I had thought about asking you about welding 475. But I had such good luck with the poulan 415 fix last year  in same area I went ahead already and did the 475 yesterday. It's ready to be put together now.

Thanks for the offer though.

Well ok I tried.  The only thing it would have cost you is your wisdom and knowlege that I could have called on in the future.  Maybe next time. 

  I just got a new computer couple days ago and I am still getting all the favorites set up along with other things.  Man is this thing fast compared to my old computer that I used for the last 12 years.   I can actually watch a video in real time now.

My redneck fix is by know means a pretty fix. But it is still holding up on the 415 and just did it on the 475.

If you want some pics of the final stage I can get those. But the part where I mended, laced together, stitched the 2 parts with the #12 copper wire is all under the last stage of fix.

  Actually I had read about your fix and saw the pictures of the 415 that you repaired.  I believe is was broken the same way by shipping and in the same spot.   Really a shame, but that is one of the reasons I decided to start welding on these magesium cases, because things happen to good saws.  Oh by the way I know you had done alot of work on some 3750's and I believe you had 3 at one time.  I am looking for another one myself so if you come across something I am in the market.  Roger
Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: Cut4fun . on July 27, 2012, 08:33:52 pm
The 415 was smashed by a tree on only it's 3rd time being used by a homeowner user just like me.

He then tried to have it  welded but whoever did it just made the metal brittle and it just fell apart around welded area aka blew a big hole through it basically.

I bought the 415 saw as a box of parts so I didnt have nothing to loose trying my redneck fix.

3750 what shape are you wanting?   You wanting TA editions purple covers or just a plain 3750 with black covers?
Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: 3000 FPS on July 28, 2012, 01:30:20 am
Anything that has a good cylinder.  I believe I could find the rest of the parts fairly easy.  So if you come across something let me know. 

  I did not know that about the 415 I thought it was broke in shipping also.  Well anyways thanks alot.

Post by: Cut4fun . on July 28, 2012, 01:25:02 pm
I moved most of the 3750 info with part numbers over to 3750 thread.


Pic of 415.  The weld just crumbled off taken some more case with it ( Someone tried to weld it before I got the box of parts, it didnt hold, it is just set there for pic).  My redneck wire job and fix is still cutting it today.

I'll get some pics of my ugly fixes on 415 475 later today.

Since were showing some welding this is a before and after I did today.  I believe it is a 5200 clutch cover.  The pitting is very shallow in the pics and will fill in easily and will not affect the integrity of the metal.

Post by: Cut4fun . on July 28, 2012, 03:27:28 pm
Redneck fixes.

Here is the 415. You can see the lighter grey JB I used on this one to help fill the voids that was blown through both pieces on the attempted weld.  It is wired together underneath then JB and then the steel putty.

Copper #12 house wire I found works really well and is mend-able  to form around.  About 2" pieces at a time.

(http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g289/doemaster789/PP505PP365JD800/redneckfixes007.jpg)


Project 475. No JB was needed on this one. Just drill holes, wire and steel putty = redneck fix.  ;D

Must be nice to be able to weld.   8) 8)

I have a very old stick welder for emergency repairs and then it  looks like chicken poop. But as long as it holds I'm a happy camper.

Your fix looks to be strong and holding it together so that in the end the saw can still be used.  It gets the job done.
Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: bnkz on July 28, 2012, 04:27:52 pm
Do you have to remove paint before JB weld or steele putty? If I ever need to I'll try your redneck fix. Although hope I don't have to.
Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: Cut4fun . on July 28, 2012, 04:31:38 pm
It just says clean area. So I just wiped clean and then used rubbing alcohol to clean area and let dry. No paint removed. 

On the 415 I was just trying it out and it worked.  I'm not one to worry about looks as long as the tool works right.
Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: Cut4fun . on July 31, 2012, 07:01:20 pm
Well I am learning the 475 and 425 differ.

 After spending 2 different days trying to remove the 475 clutch, today I succeeded. Once the clutch was off and oiler removed I realized it has the metal pressed on worm gear on crankshaft.  Guess I should have realized this when it didnt have the same clutch drum as 425 and plastic worm gear.

So right now I am stuck at coming up with a worm gear removal tool for the 475.

Also one side of the 425 crank bearings is different then the standard bearing used on opposite side and on both on 475. That 425 side seal is different too.

Saving info from another running into this on a 2077 oiler redo. OEM part number for worm gear puller  502540901

((The original gear on the crankshaft was steel,15 mm I.D., 18 mm O.D. on the sealing surface, 16.5 mm overall height/length, and about 22.43 mm O.D. on the gear teeth.

The replacement I ordered (503 72 36 01) is plastic and intended to drive off the clutch, 17 mm I.D., 19.75 mm O.D. on the sealing surface, 15.15 mm overall height/length, and about 22.2 mm O.D. on the gear teeth.

All measurements above were made with the dial caliper and converted to mm so they may be off slightly.))

Forgot to mention I had to use a afm 52mm piston for now.
The oem piston ring is stuck in the groove and I havent been able to get anywhere with it for a few weeks.  Looks like it will be making a trip someday to Al Smith's place for the kroil treatment. 

Used 425 tank on 475 also. Have 2 bare 475 tanks on the shelf.

475 is running now  8) .  I am still way short on parts to complete it but hey who need it anyways.   ;D

Post by: Cut4fun . on August 08, 2012, 08:26:30 pm
I used a afm solid style 52mm 372 piston  ;). Slipped right in with no mods to it.   

Learned that the cranks look just like a husky crank I have on the shelf too.  Just need to put calibers on them. But they look identical. Also learned a air filter I can use in flocked style instead of mesh for the filter types I use on these.
Title: Re: Poulan pro 475

Recognize the filters?  These are oem 415 505 filters.

and here is the flocked filters I found on some of my newer smaller poulans that work. They are just mounted upside down on those saws and carry same number on filter ;D

Post by: man of stihl on August 08, 2012, 08:40:31 pm
I'm anxious to hear how it runs. The 415 is a bad 65cc saw IMO. The 505 runs good too.
Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: 3000 FPS on August 08, 2012, 09:15:25 pm
Why re-invent another filter when you can take one off the self.  You would think that it could save manufacturing costs.  You seemed to have a firm grasp on the Poulan line of saws.   I myself will just keep reading and learning.

I just got done test cutting with 475 in some black walnut I have on hand.  ;D Sweet.

One thing I learned on this project. You can use  different husqvarna parts from 272 371 372 on it and they are bolt on no mods required.   ;)   Every time I looked at something, I thought, hmmm that looks like it's from a 272 or that looks like a 371 part and those 372 parts work perfect  8).

WeLL I have 3 runners 415  475 505 so far and  project 425 still in the works. Problem is I have 3 runners and 2 clutch covers.
So I made a 3rd one today. Poulan ones are plastic. The one I modified  is metal.

 

Started with this clutch cover and started carving on it  ;D .

I was just telling Magnus a few tips on using the husky clutch cover. Being he just smashed the partner 710 clutch cover  and he cant find a replacement cover.

Lot of inner trimming to narrow cover up like the poulan one. Also have to notch the metal deflector part around the bolt heads  being it sets  further back.  ;)

371 cranks look identical to one pulled from 425.
flywheel from 372 and 425 look identical with molded in  key too.   
You can drop a husky 365 piston in the 425 or 415. 
Husky 372 piston would be a drop in for the 445.
Aftermarket big bore 372 piston is a drop in for 475.
Black coils from 415 425 exchange with husky 272 55 etc. Remove the green coils from 505 475 and put the 272 55 in.
One side of seals came back to husky 372 for 475 425.
Both bearings on 475 come back to 372 and 1 bearing on 425 come back to 372.
starter pawls on flywheel look to be 272
starter pulley looks to be from 266 268 272 would have to match up the metal  length
needing carb bolts, I just used 2 from a 372  ;)

This is just what I can think of off the top of my head.

Just throwing this out there. I can be traded or for right price out of all my poulan 415 424 475 505 stuff. Done it before on 325 066-660 084 stuff in the past.  ;D  Like I said I'm not attached to nothing in saws. Just a hobby of rebuilding and working on them.

 I have 1 new NOS 475 bare tank and 1 475 well used bare tank plus a back up bar 2077 2083 tank too.  I just used the 425 tank on the 475 saw for now being I had the trigger etc in it already.

371 cranks look identical to one pulled from 425.

Finally spotted a difference in the 2 cranks. Coarse thread used on poulan and fine thread on husky.  Didnt catch it till someone else was holding both up looking at them and I looked at them straight on.

I am still looking for a crank seal on the Clutch side of my 475.   I found the one for the flywheel side and ordered and recieved it but still have not found one for the clutch side.   I was comparing the Jonsered 2077 and 2083 but do not know if the case is the same.  I also looked at the Husky 372 but once again I am not sure if the case is the same.   Have any of you tried a seal from one of these other saws for the clutch side and have it work ok, or know of another alternative.

Well the more I get into the 475 the less I like.   It looks to me like someone did some repairs on this before.  Screw heads that are rounded out and check this out.   

    This is the seal on the clutch side.   They had this sleeve pushed up into the seal for what reason I do not know.   I have not had one of these apart before but have a hard time believing it was made that way.  No sleeve in the IPL that I can see.   The only thing I can think of was no one could find the correct seal so this was the fix.  Have a look tell me what you think.    Roger

Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: Cut4fun on January 15, 2013, 09:04:59 pm
Which oiler you have on yours?  Metal pressed on worm gear or the plastic oiler wing? Sorry cant think of proper name.

I know the husky 372 uses a sleeve. I havent seen one on mine but that dont mean I didnt over look it. I am thinking one of the 505 with plastic wing oiler gear   might have a sleeve. Will look later to be sure or not.

Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: 3000 FPS on January 15, 2013, 09:38:30 pm
The worm gear is metal but even it does not look right.   It is not one of the ones that looks like it has wings that drives off the clutch drum.   This one was metal and it looked like it had been cut away some and it just slid right off, was not a press fit. 

Even though the worm gear like on the 505 that uses a spacer, would not have the spacer fit up into the seal and against the bearing.   

   The way this thing was set up was a recipe for air leaks.   The only reason I never started the saw when I got it was because of the start of scoring on the piston.   That was why I started right away looking for crank seals.    Then later I decided to do a compression check and the bearings started to lock up on it.   I think I got taken on this one.   Oh well.

Yep one in the same.   
This has now put me on a mission.    I have to much money that I paid for the saw to just let it sit.   So I am going to yank the seal out tonight and take all the necessary measurements and try and find one that way.   Then I will address the oiler problem.   Maybe convert it to a worm gear with the wings that drives off of the clutch drum.

   It is going to be interesting what I find with the bearings after I split the case.    I now have the starter, flywheel, clutch, oiler all removed and I cannot believe how rough it turns over.   I will update as I go along.

Well I got the 475 all tore down.   Cranks bearings showed signs of rust.  The crank case showed some signs of mag rot where the bearing press in.   I had to drill the heads off of 5 of the case screws to get it apart.  Someone had rounded them out.   I have the crankcase gasket and clutch side seal on order.  The piston was scored on both sides and so I am going to replace it with a meteor.   So we will see how it all goes back together.

  barneyrb = Guys I went back today and there are no more seals for the PP475. The owner of this shop told me that the new bearing/seal assembly (505) will replace the separate seal and bearing without any problem. He convinced me enough to where I went ahead and bought the assembly to replace what I had.

He also told me the reason for the change is this, Jonsered/Poulan had a problem with the separate s/b spinning in the case thereby trashing the case. The JRed fix was to replace the that assembly with a bearing with built in (replaceable) seal and it had a wider outer contact patch with the case and stopping the bearing spinning in the case.

I am building a 415 and using a 505 setup and will report back my findings.

I screwed up Kevin on the measurement.   The shaft is actually .588.   I had already ordered one of the others and did not realize the mistake until it came in and I put it on the shaft.   So I started looking again and cannot find a seal with that shaft size.  I also took metric measurements and it is. 
shaft  15mm
OD.    35mm
width  6mm.
I did find a single lip seal that was close to that but it is out of stock until march.  So I am thinking that it is probably NLA also.   But if I have to do some kind of improvising I will to get this thing working again.  I have the case gasket on order and everything is in place except that seal.  Too much time and money to quit now.

The dimensions
Shaft   .588
OD.     1.370

If a seal can be found with the correct shaft and OD.  the width could be modified easily.

I looked at pages 3,4,5 and all those have a shaft diameter of more than 1 inch.

I ordered the seal from Rock Auto and have not recieved it yet.   When I get it will let you know.

Guy in Oregon told me he found right seal on that sight. I didnt see it. 

Let me know on the rock auto for sure. I have gotten stuff from them before for cars when not in a hurry.

Thanks I see now 1mm short pin to top and 2.5mm to 2.65mm short total.  I really like the BB372 in mine. Gives you a little more intake with the shorter skirt.

That is one good looking piston there.   By the way thanks.

The saw is together and running good.    I tuned it in some wood and kept it just a little on the fat side for now.   Checked the RPM's out of the cut 13,300.   I checked the compression after letting it cool down and still holding at 180 PSI.    I had to pull the clutch off of a 505, the one on the 475 would not let the saw idle and chain stop moving.   The oiler works really well and I had to turn it down to keep it from pumping to much.   The bar is a 28" that I had recently did some work on.   Trued up the rails on it and put a new sprocket nose.   
Here are some pics.

You still running the stock green coil? Reason I ask I have read some were rev limited and some were not in green.

 My green ones have been rev limited so far  :'(.

Also got some pistons today too. Thanks back  and  8) ;)  glad I could help you out.

No on the green coil.  When I tore it back down to do the piston I replaced the coil with a husky like was suggested.  The saw I believe is just tight right now with the new bearings and seals and new piston.    I think it will lossen up with use and pick up on the rpm's.

While I was snapping pics today. Here is the poulan nos tank that I was told was taken off a new poulan 475 at a dealers back in the day that was being used as a parts saw.  You can see where a handle was in it and little chaff on right side under handle. Maybe shelf scrap :confused2: who knows.

Might be easier to just buy a yellow shell and make or buy 505 decal.

What all ones you have in this series now? 

Still kicking myself over not getting the 445 or least try and get it.  Still the only 1 I have saw.

445,475,505

If I can find a shell for the recoil I will do that.   I just have not found one yet.   I do not want to order one from craftsman it might end up a different color.

Hey Roger...................... how do the full wrap handles on these feel compared to the half wraps. Same handle thickness?  Not skinner I hope like a 166 is compared to the 166 half wrap.

Thinking about a set for 505 green jeans is why I ask.

The half wraps on my 505 measure around 25mm and the full wraps on my 475 measure around 27mm.   Just alittle bigger which I happen to like for my hand size.   So I prefer the full wrap handle, but not enough to go out and buy a set to replace a perfectly good set of half wrap handles.

I don't have pics tight now but if you look at the pics someone posted above in the first and second pic you see that piece that sticks out the front and up? The piece where the handle attaches it broke along the line where the air filter cover mounts. I hope this helps. I did not know other models would work, would really like to find a yellow one but I guess I will settle for anything. Thanks!

As far as a pic of my saw I took a few but I'm doing this on my phone and can't get them to upload but that tank you have pics of looks identical to mine. I've been looking for a tank for 3 yrs (obviously not to hard) it seems odd I couldn't find none until now and you have 4. Let me know about that fix you did.

I didnt fix none of the tanks I have. They were traded to me like that (yellow fixed one came in on trade for my NOS 475 tank). Actually hope I never have to see how strong the fixes are and if they will hold or not.
 Just back up tanks if one gets crushed etc like what almost happened to the one on my 415.  **** the floor of the tank etc.

I am the one that put that metal plate on the tank. If you look real close you can see a crease that follows the original tank lines and that crease gives it the strength. It wasn't hard to make, it just took several hours because I don't have the correct bending tools and I am a perfectionist when it comes to repairing something like that.

Once I got the plate built to my satisfaction, all the holes drilled, and everything aligned up properly, I set that sucker with JB Weld and then bolted it all down for good and walked off and left it for a day for the epoxy to cure. I have no doubts it is stronger than the day it left the factory.

Yes, sorry....its not letting me quote.  The magnesium cases can be welded. Just cause one person failed doesn't mean it can't be done. Welding is one of those things that an "ok" who knows how to work a particular metal is better then an ace who has never touched it.

It almost looked like they tried to use aluminum filler rod to me instead of magnesium.
Title: Re: Poulan pro 475
Post by: doreadeal on September 04, 2013, 06:35:48 am
They probably did. A good trick, if your not sure if something is aluminum or magnesium, scratch off some shavings. Put a lighter to them, if you don't get a blinding white flame, its aluminum. Magnesium if you do....the right filler rod works wonders.

fossil found a dealer in Canada that could still get the  poulan pro 475 clutch aka PTO side seals. $10 something a piece. I got one coming for backups.

I still think the newer bearing seal deal in 425 445 505 will work too. But till I hear from Randy, I cant say for sure yet.

Just throwing this out there.  Not a have to do as I can dremel out what I need for my air filter needs.

I've got a NOS poulan pro 475 air filter cover for my new project  saw.  If someone has a good condition air filter cover 415 425 445 505 with the air filter type I use. I would trade. Other wise I will need to trim the plastic up inside the NOS PP475  cover like I did on my 475 to  run the filters I like on them.  Might also have to sand the screen printing off.

So rather someone that needs a nice NOS 475 cover to trade for a good cover for my needs.



Also have a used yellow PP475 tank that I am going to trim the air filter plastics out of to use for the air filter style I like.  If someone has a yellow 415 tank and needs a 475 tank for that style air filter, I would gladly trade you too.

I've been getting PM'ed about someone wanting a 415 475 yellow tank for a racesaw build.  I was just given the address to mail the tank to and it was Herb Gringras brother to Jerry Gingras looking for the tank.

Now I wonder if he is building a 4ci or a 5ci racesaw from the poulan.  Hope it is a 415 with the quads for a 4ci.

were only 2 without bars on them. I choose the 475 for test.

Roger if you notice it has the updated 505 445 425 tank in black. 
That way I didnt have to cut up the 2 475 tanks I had with that older air filter set ups. I prefer the newer air filters and tank set ups.

Now my yellow tank on my 415 is the newer set up.  Unlike the older 415 ones shown in IPL.

Myself I think my 475 cuts just about as good as my 505.

This is the 475 using the BB372 piston. Hair more intake duration (pic of all those pistons in a row pin to pin shows this).
Ran great and always has IMO.  This stock 475 was out cutting a woods ported 505 topend on a 475 at poulan gtg in cant 10x10 timed cuts. My 20" chain made up the difference. That was with me operating both saws. Boy that irked the woods ported owner.   :D :D :D :D  he kept sharpening his round chain till I finally got 1 quicker cut with his.  :P   ;D

The chain needs some work (as I didnt touch it yet looked ok for test but not up to my likings)  but was surprised how well 77cc pulled full comp 119dl in rip cut. 
 I could dawg it in to slow it down in rip cut, but you can do that on anything even bucking.

I really cant tell much difference in the 6cc difference of 505 475.  Same saws just 2mm smaller bore 475.

Chain is getting close to the witness mark but sure glad I didnt have to hand file this thing. I put it on the grinder then checked the rakers .025.

Cleaned the surface rust off the bar and went over the rails.

Then  thought I would see if the husky homemade clutch cover would clear noodles better. Nope.

At the last GTG I had the 505 I got from you and my 475.   Both saws ran excellent and cut through those big pieces of oak they had there with very good authority.   I was very pleased to say the least.   

Your right Jim too bad they do not make them any more. 

Gatekeeper I have a 2083 also but have never ran it.   I need to get it out and get off my butt and see how it does.   I have some big pieces of ash here that needs cut up.

The 505 woods port I ran was stronger then stock but not impressively stronger like I like and it was ported by a guy that knows how to port a super strong 372 OE.

So who knows what someone else can find for one.

I do wonder if the 70.7cc 445 quad port can be made to run as good or better then the 372 OE though.  I would think it could be better JMO.

The cylinder design is more like a Stihl. Should port more like them than a husky.

Jim I was thinking about this today while in barn working.  I have a pp505 lower end with good crank and bad pto seal on the 385 style upgrade bearing seal deal.

Ok.   So I know there was some confusion on the shaft size of this seal due to some of my own errors.   

I looked at the OEM seal and the size on that says   18x35x4mm.   

So I got the one I ordered that is for a Husky 455 and it is 15x35x4.   So the shaft size on this seal will not work.   So for future reference
The correct shaft size is 18mm.   This is due to the way the oiler is designed on this saw.   That was an error on my part not knowing that when I first tore the saw down and measured it wrong.       So back to the search you guys.   Thanks for trying.

Also if I remember correctly a seal that is up to 6mm wide will fit without hitting the oiler.

18x35x7 Viton. Colonial Seal Company[New Jersey] has on there site a seal with these dimensions. Viton has a better gas resistance than NBR.

Post by: 3000 FPS on January 11, 2016, 10:56:31 am
The 7mm wide will not work.   6mm is the max width that it can go.   The oiler will hit if any wider then 6mm.

I looked up their web site and they provide a number to call with questions.  Could have possibilities  Thanks.

They have NBR seals 5 mm wide. I do not know how NBR resist to gasoline and ethanol. If the specs are aceptable maybe you can try those[ much cheaper].

 You can cut 1 -1,5 MM from the inner side of the seal, only the robber coating.

NOS Honda CB92 18x35x5 Oil Seal 91305-202-000

Get lots of hits on the Googler for the Honda part number. Possibly some would be a lot less with shipping than this Ebay link.  A couple of the hits mention it goes behind the alternator or breaker plate of an old Honda skooter, so it is a crank seal of some sort. Might save a few saws from the trash heap.

Nice info thanks for sharing. Wonder if she works.

Just in case you didnt know. The updated crank bearing seal combo pto side 505 also work in the 475. So they wont ever make the heap pile because of the seal. It is just tougher as you need to split the crankcase now for pto side. 505 updates to the husky 385 390 bearing seal set used.

Here is a picture again of the OEM seal on the right and I believe the Husky 455 seal on the left.   You can see the inside diameter on the one on the right is larger and that is what you need.    18x35x4 mm for the OEM seal.  18 is the shaft size.

Seals I ordered are in. They are NOK brand, very good quality in my experience. The seals themselves are marked 17.9 X 35 X 5 but the seal lip is quite pliable so I don't see an issue. I'll hang these on my wall and test fit when I have a crankshaft to try it on.

Poulan 475 76.5cc this saw showed no signs of anything wrong. Pulled 36" ripping like a beast. Psi felt good IMO. Priced it to a guy with used topend and BB372 piston and used oem 475 piston.
I wanted to check the piston etc so I pulled the muffler to see how things were looking on the afm piston. Noticed a scuff right side. So I pulled it down and called guy to tell him. He told me to go with the NOS 475 topend kit I have and I would do the swapping labor free.
Then while down I pulled it down to check seals etc. Seals still good but the crank bearing had rough spots. So called the guy and told him no go on this one for now. Oh well better to find out now then ruin a good NOS topend.

Used pulled 140psi with base gasket, but felt more then that to me.  ???   Guessing 8 tanks on the afm piston and rings.

Looks like I will be pulling wild thing 505 apart and throwing on the NOS 475 stuff on it with the covers etc.
Just no time to be splitting and doing bearings on saws right now.
Have a 505 down with a pto seal bad. = $35 bearing seal combo and split. One thing that is a draw back of the update. But is also the same bearing set used on the 385 390 saws.

One of the reasons I tore my 475 down was because of the bearings.    The symptom was that it was getting hard to pull over with the pull rope.    When I got it tore apart and pulled the bearings out I could see where they had rusted at one time.

Stripped the 475 all the way down to where the crankcase could be split. Not going to use the right half anyways as it was the half I had to redneck repair.
Will use a 445 crankcase or other 475 cc. All I want from this 475 was the good crankshaft for the 445 or other 475.  All the parts put in a bin and shelved.  :P

Still havent come up with anything to fit this freaking worm gear. Guarandangtee ya no freaking worm gear will be going back on with the nos 475 seal and bearings. Will all be updated bearin seal and oiler system from the  505 445 425 stuff.

This was a piece of a puller that I believe was made for a Husqvarna.    I bought it along time ago on ebay.   But anyways I took my flex shaft with a small cutoff wheel and re-cut the threads some.   It is only enough to get it on a couple of threads but it was enough to pull the worm gear off.  If it threaded on any more I might not get the two jaw puller underneath to get it off.    Well that is how I got mine off when I rebuilt the saw.

Then pull the bad crank big end rod bearing gone out of it out of the good 475 crankcase.

Also will be giving up that redneck repaired 475 tank I took on trade for my NOS tank way back. As I wont use 475 tanks due to the different air filter systems used. I like the newer 505 set ups.

There surely were differences, the PP 415 and 475 didn't have the fully developed "Air Injection", just like the early 7700, 2077 and 660 saws didn't. At least over here, 1992 was the first "model year" for the "Air Injection" (on the Partner and Jonsered models - no Poulan Pro over here). Unlike with PP, the model numbers remained the same with Partner and Jonsered, after the change.

The timing always made me wonder about the "gap" between the PP 475 (without AI) and the 505 (with AI) that replaced it in the PP line-up. There is about a year where the PP 475 seems to have been different from its Partner and Jonsered "stablemates", provided there never were any 475s with AI (which by PP logics should have been called 485)?  ???

Pulled the crank from the crankcase today. Was 2nd attempt. Not a fan of the crankcase bolts used in the 475.
T-25 or straight slot screwdriver.  2 were wollard and had to drive a T-27 into to work. 1 still would not work as it was wollard that bad.
So I let out a plan. 1 left cut drill bits or drill and extractor.
Went with left cut drill bit and to my surprise it worked.

Then to split cases without a splitter.   Done.  Was the crank bearings like I thought.  1 so bad the inner race is still on the crank.

Drawing a blank on how to remove this inner race. Ideas? 

Not seeing where any puller I have will work.  :-\

Heat or cut off is what I have come up with too.

Yep.  Heat from a small torch tip right on the race.  Hang the crank with that end down and heat the race.  Tap it with a hammer and it'll probably drop right off.

I'd try heat first. It should expand quickly and be able to be pulled off or pried off.

Looks like I dont have to worry about it for now. Guy needing the crank said send as is.  Since he needs the crank for a 2083 with big end out and wants my wild thing 505 cylinder too.

Grabbed some pics while pulling a cylinder off the 505.

475 I split for the crank. It is the one that I redneck repaired the av mount back onto crankcase.

Never new there was updated worm gear kits for the 475 415 till I found some NOS kits I thought were 505 worm gears.  8)

NOS worm gears, oilers, clutch drums, pto crank seals, misc other parts came in.  The NOS ones will work with the updated sleeve that was made to use to update the 475 415 worm gears from metal ones.



I think as long as I use the updated sleeve with this worm gear they will work as 425 445 505 worm gear replacements too.   :P

The 475 crank and 505 cylinder left to it's new home on a 2083 in the great white north.  New owner said he would keep me updated on the rebuild progress and how he removes the inner race.

Yep I was waiting for it and forgot  :P. I remember the video from the racesaws day.

Finger ports were in this saw Roger.

Seen a racesaw 084 with his signature across the clutch cover in black permanent marker that he built. Coon was running the saw.

He built one of the meanest 45cc 346 on alky nitro saw I ever seen too. Was built before some shows started to allow the 3.1 in the 3.0 class.

Drawing a blank on how to remove this inner race. Ideas? 

Not seeing where any puller I have will work.  :-\

Well being we came up with all the redneck ways of doing this. Here is the husqvarna bearing puller. Shared with me by Onan18 at Hills Ace Hardware and Outdoor Power

We are talking about this in the chainsaw repair group. Poulan 425 445 505  plastic worm gear and might have someone there try to make one on a 3D printer.  Jonsered 2077 2083

Also the old metal worm gear poulan 415 475 can be made on a metal lathe.

Also note there is 2 different plastic winged ones that have to be used with different spacers.

Last summer in Vancouver, B.C. I saw a 3D printer make a foot high  plastic Eiffel Tower in about a half hour.
My concern to make a product like a worm gear for a chainsaw is what type or grade of plastic should this printer use.
Here's a pic.

Hooked up the maker and another guy needing one. Think they are going to give it a try.

I had question about the plastic holding up.  =  it depends on temp and if i used nylon it would help, i mostly do rc stuff.
 i can 3d print anything you want pretty much if i have something to work off of

2 going to be made so I can test one out and compare.

Stated he will order some higher heat plastic being his normal plastic starts to melt at 300. Seeing if he can get 400 or better.

I had my 475 out today to cut some of this Elm off.     I had not run this saw since 2015 and it fired up and did not even need tuning.    This saw always runs great.

It has a 28" bar here in this pic.    I could not lift this log with my tractor is why I cut the end off.

That is a heck of a deal.

I have to say Kevin the 475 I have is the one I rebuilt back in 2012.   That is the one I got the new OEM piston from you and installed.    This saw seems to have really great compression and always cuts and runs great.

I ended up ordering a set of those big west coast dawgs spikes that came with the full wraps.  Felt I could use them on the 505 with 32".   

I hated the small dawgs on the 385xp when using the 32" and wished I had had the bigger set on it. So getting a set while I still can for 505.

Guy I sold 385 to local first thing he did was pull the small dawgs and put on bigger dawgs with his 32" set up.

Hey Roger...................... how do the full wrap handles on these feel compared to the half wraps. Same handle thickness?  Not skinner I hope like a 166 is compared to the 166 half wrap.

Thinking about a set for 505 green jeans is why I ask.

The half wraps on my 505 measure around 25mm and the full wraps on my 475 measure around 27mm.   Just alittle bigger which I happen to like for my hand size.   So I prefer the full wrap handle, but not enough to go out and buy a set to replace a perfectly good set of half wrap handles.

I was wondering about this. Great info Roger.

Been getting calls from the UK  :o. Guy tracked me down by calling a old poulan dealer I have dealt with  here in the states.  Looks like I maybe sending the NOS 475 topend to help him repair a guys partner 7700 with the air injection.  Figured he could just leave the tube off.

Guess a tree claimed another 475. But shop says its repairable.

Now I got someday calling saying they was told to get hold of me for a 475 tank.   I was like sure I can pull one from a running saw for you or just sell you the updated 425 445 505 415 style tank.  They ran it by the owner and they want it back the same as 475 used.

Told them no problem I will pull it from saw I just got and sell bare.  Will pull all the parts from it to install into another 425 or 505 tank for my saw.

This tank I will sell them if they want it.  I like the updated ones better anyways.  ;)

That round metal piece that goes in there for holding that section together seems kind of flimsy to me.   I made one out of thicker metal on my Frankensaw. 

That would be the rubber intake to the plastic handle and carb.

Post by: Cut4fun . on October 25, 2018, 02:04:51 pm
Thought you ran the updated tank and air filter system on the 505 with red tank?

If not, you talking about the outer piece that in on carbed end?

Think I have some of those NOS still.  Metal ring piece on the rubber inlet tubes?

Old pic, lot of stuff gone.

Later updated tank in red.

You seen what Bob had to say about the early air filter system?  = Bob Morrison I was involved in the development of that saw.   The original-style air filter on the 415 and 475 didn't work. Took me about two years to convince the Swedes of that.
