Title: 2165 Rebuild
Post by: mdavlee . on January 04, 2016, 07:28:38 pm
Had a locked crank in the 2165 bottom end here. I got a nice used crank for it.

I had to hammer the crank around to be able to get the splitter on it. I heated the pockets before I tapped the bearings out.

Started reassembly today after finding the right bearings. I heat the case halves in the oven at 300 for around half an hour. I had to reheat the pocket on the 2nd half. It cooled too much while taking pictures. The flywheel side went all the way in by hand pressure.

I put 518 on the case gasket to help hold it in place. Here it is right after getting the bolts to tighten all the way up. I had to tap on the flywheel side a little to free the crank up. It was a little tight to that side. Hopefully later tonight I'll get the tank off the other saw and put on this case and install a p/c.

These were one of my favorite series of saws.  Sort of wished I would have keep a few back.

I like these pretty good. The 65cc will pull a 24" just like the 372 will.

Here's as far as I got. I need a brake handle and clutch cover to be complete. The rest of the parts are there on the 365 or on the way in the mail.

I have some 365 Specials that I use along with my 372XP's. I choose one or the other in the woods according to the chain

I did not know that.  I may have to keep an eye out for one.

I bet there's a lot of those cylinders setting on shelves from being swapped to BB kits or 71cc OEM kits.

It is so far. Waiting on a few parts from Spike to finish it up.

24" under I bet folks couldnt tell one from the other if handed the saws in 71cc and 65cc with the closed port top.

Glad to see you got the ole girl bout running again.  These saw series are living legends in my eye.  They just do everything well.  I have yet to ever rebuild one though :(  Maybe someday I will find 1 cheap enough to build  ;)  Everybody loves'em. :)

So far I prefer the older series over the new ones. The 576 is ok but these are better to work on.

I started referring to the 365 372 as OE and NE like on 346's.  That way I know if they are ones I am interested in. I prefer the non xtorq stuff still.

I broke one on my 445 yesterday.  Had the WT one on hand ready so just changed out.

Buddy was like ok now what happens if this happens to me in the woods.  I showed him. but he wont remember how to do it.

I hate when it happens. I'm going to grab about 10' when I go get some tomorrow.

I had maybe 40 feet of 3 different sizes on hand. 

One thing I learned racing. Carry extra recoils ready to bolt on them if one breaks during warm up. Hint hint for future. ;)

Yep. Going to have a pile of parts for 365 the way it looks. 2 good cases and one with a broken piece for the rear mount. At least it's a good crank.
