Were these bare bore like a 3300 or were they chrome bore a 335?  If chrome bore, thick ring or rings like a 3450 or the predator 335 or thin like pp335?

@3000 FPS  this one is like the 335 poulan predator, chrome bore with single ring bare piston  like used on poulan 3450 pp330. 

Also noticed this one had fuel line out of top of tank, but the tank vent like on the 3450 330 etc saws with it on the left side area.
So this must be that update tank deal I had ask about earlier in a thread on that 3.0 when I noticed a type 2 II tank listed.

Would you be able to post pictures of the fuel line setup ?

I'm just looking to see what the differences are between the grey one that I have (ported now) and this one.
My grey one (plain bore) runs pretty well ........... we'll see how nice time is to her as she is being used as my limbing saw with .375 LP chain. IIRC, it took an extra link more on the loop than the Echo needs

The bronze vent duckill valve behind it wasnt showing up in pic. So 2nd pic screwdriver shows where it is at.

Red orangish line is the fuel line on this one. Wondering what that line is from. Very pliable.

That should make a great running saw.   Very Good.

Just test cut with it.

Just finished going through it.  Replaced the impulse line with the echo 3mmx6mm line. Left the red fuel line in to see how it does, then will put the true blue stens in if needed.
Noticed it has a brand new cylinder cover and air filter cover.  Plus a new back half muffler.   2 bolts for muffler that were wrong and to log. Cut them and grinded on them some to use with right washers etc.  Front muffler half one of the holes had been wallared a hair but usable.

I left it all stock to see for now. No opening of muffler baffle or extra exit.   Impressed for stock.

Modded the new 16" K095 mount dolmar bar that came with it for for K041 oiling and bar tensioner.

I am really really liking this 3.3 335.  ;D    Might have to keep this one in place of the 365.

I helped 2 folks out today. 1 was just wanting 3 11" cookies about 2" thick. Some local wanted to charge her $10 a cut per cookie :eek::confused:.
I told the women I would cut her 3 cookies for free and sometimes it is not about the $ :envy: pass it on freely.

The other was a preschool looking for wood projects for kids to stack and play with.  They were wanting to pay me but again I said consider this a donation. :cheers:

Well my little 3.3 335 impressed the heck out of me today again. Besides all of the little cuts and the biggest 16" buried bucking.
I decided to see how it would do ripping the ash butt log with the 16" buried. :sweet:  Also did some noodling and it would pack up the clutch cover at times. But dang she ripped for a 54cc.
Also ran a 372 I rebuilt and sold. Dang it was a good running saw ripping with 24"

Front left 3 are 11" x 12"

I know I sure like my 335's a lot.   I cut up a lot of wood in the mountains about 2 years back.    Last year I used the 365's and 3750's and this year I used the 3500 some and my Husky 455 and Stihl 036.   The 335's have no problem keeping up and they are compact and light weight.

I think you should keep this one.

While bench #1 has 3 waiting on parts. Decided pull another of mine from the to do list. Put this one on bench #3.

Working on a 54cc I picked up to have parts back up for my other one I just love for my 3 cube size saw. Only thing it is a runner. Chrome bore 3.3.

Pulling all the yellow no name lines, fuel, vent, impulse and will be using echo black lines.

Glad I checked the muffler etc. Had some blockage from a wore heat shield and washers used on wrong bolt inside muffler.

Did you happen to check the piston and bore on the gold lettered gold label black craftsman?  Seems some of those have been chrome and bare bore.

Very nice, I wish I could find more of the good poulan local , I'm kinda wanting a 3450 size with the big carb

All 3450 3750 380 330 come with big intakes and big carbs. Carns will be 164 and some 137

I have a like new 3450 here right now.  Came with the 137 carb = needs a kit in it still. Put another carb on it to test with. But pulls 180psi stock with gasket in.   Piston still has crisp witness lines.
Still need to check and see if it reads that high. Never seen one of these pull that stock.

Also have 2 NOS 380 3750 60cc p+c kits. I had to pay retail for at a dealer that he had left over from when his dad was a poulan dealership.

Oh another craftsman 3.3 black sears best I hope to get real soon. Pics below.

UPDATE.   Had talked to the guy after missing that last Sunday meeting.  He had forgot and was hauling wood and ran late.  Again no biggie.
The next Sunday I remembered I was going to be at Eldora for the weekend.  He stated he would hold saw and it was mine.

Well today with both met halfway between where we live. 45mins 1 way  each way for both and return trips.   

Bought it just for the parts but going to see if I can make it a runner.  He stated he couldnt get it to start. 

Plastics and air filter all look new still. Just surface rust on bolt heads, muffler etc.

Even came with a 20" oregon set up.

Just picked this up today after a drive in Ohio. My 3rd 54cc of this model craftsman 3.3 with chrome bore.

Bought it for parts. But bet I get it running. Last guy couldnt get it started.

Good thing the air filter was doing its job.

Under clutch cover looked like new.  Under cylinder cover looked like new. Everything looked like new.
Could tell fuel line, tank vent, impulse line had been replaced at one time.
Dumped fuel out of it and got a bad feeling when I seen what looked like straight gas.
Pulled muffler and the heat shield etc was still like new.
Buttttttt one side of of piston had started to score and stuck ring. New that straight looking gas coming out was going to be bad. Oh well. 
Dont look like straight gas score from what I saw though.
Wont rebuild for now just glad to have all these like new parts for time being. 

Has the harder to find pulley etc just to start with thick recoil.

I so could clean this piston up in this saw.   Will clean cylinder up and use the piston in another saw for myself.

I took pics comparing the 3.3 cylinder which is the poulan 335 predator cylinder and thinking poulan pro 336 cylinder.  All pistons the same from what I can tell. Different numbers molded inside though. 

Also took pics of a poulan pro 330 cylinder and piston to compare. Same as 3450.  To show comparison like the 336 thread.

more pics 3.3 330 etc

 After cleaning by hand then ball hone to put crosshatch .

Piston installed. Saw was about as new as you could get. Not even carbon anywhere inside. Just little on top of old piston etc. None in ext outlet.
All new lines with oem black echo 3x5 and 3x6. Fuel, impulse, tank vent.

Break time. Button up later.

 Shes a runner. 20" just for testing purpose and what they come with. I like 16" on the 3ci size saws myself.

Just finished test cutting and tuning. Reminds me of the #1 I like even with first cuts on new piston kit.

Will look into #2 and see why  she dont match up to #1 #3. Just not as spunky maybe I missed the tune on #2 or carb kit cant remember what all I done to that one.

Looks good.  I did one up for my neighbor across the street. Got it on ebay, repaired what was wrong, mild port work to  get the rpm's up some, muff modded, and set up with a 18" NK bar and chain.  Nice saws.

Needed a muffler heat shield for #2 and a inner baffle for #3.  Heat shield was close to $11 before shipping  :o. Inner baffle was NLA.  So I just bought a used muffler set to get my parts. Just so I can make them 100% right.

2 were bought for parts saws for my runner. But I just finished up the other 2 now as all the muffler parts were found that I wanted to make them right.
My 3 3 cube size saws I love to cut with 16" under. Poulan 335 predator saws without the chain brake.

The large carb/boot  for sure helped the torque in the cut ...it seemed a bit boggy...on spool up ...after 2 trips to the porting bench it's where I think it should be ...1st time I only cut base and squish , worked intake and exhaust. ...no upper transfer work ..it was just ok nothing super special. ...2nd trip in was all upper transfer work ...that gave it the wow ...factor I was looking for

Got it.

There is 3 types of Craftsman 3.3 54cc that I am aware of, black with blue, black with gold, grey. The ones I like alot are the chrome bore versions that are like the poulan predator 335 saw.  Run with any saw in their same cc range and out cut some bigger.   
But anyhow went on a little trip this morning to pick up a 1 owner saw south of me.

Was showing someone why I sell all the 026 353 350 351 346 I get in.  I run these instead.

Hmmm maybe it will be a runner too. I only was taking on trade for some labor for the parts for my other 4. 3 of those were suppose to be parts saws too.
Had the original like new case with it. I gave him the case for the 2159 being it was a perfect fit and I dont do cases. He likes cases for his saws.
3 cube size 54cc that I love to run with 16's.

Got lucky on the nice parts saw I took in for some labor on a saw.

I could hear the rattle in the muffler.  Didnt care myself. Parts are parts to me. 

Anyhow #5 is a runner now too. Still need to run all new lines though.

Resizing pics.

Just finished one of these up for a local.  Needed a air filter, so I sold him one.  Impulse line, fuel line and she is ready to go after 2-3 years of setting with mix in it. 

Only 1 saw out of 10 I couldnt get running and it had a hole in piston.

Craftsman 3.3 54cc black with blue decal is a poulan 335 predator.  Chrome bore but with thick ring pistons. 
Looks like it still has the original champion 29 year old plug in it too.  Most of these homeowner bought saws seem to.

She lives to cut again #3

Another one of those chrome bore 54cc blue decal.  Last one of these to go through.  Will make 4 runners just in these ones when done.  So will be putting some up for adoption.

Guessing they were using tape to try and hold on/off wires on.  All they needed to do was close the female end some.  Tape gone. ;)

Poulan guys will know this. See the difference in this tank and the other one I did today.

She lives too. #4

5 runners now. Bought other 4 for parts.  But they took so little to make those runners too.

I expected the worst when I saw this on tear down. Was expecting to see scoring.

Muffler was loose at seam.

Just went through the new to me 54cc chrome bore.  It lives too.  So 6 runners in those alone.   
Lot nicer under covers then expected too.  New line, impulse line, bar tensioner and my redneck line clip.

NOS Craftsman 3.3 358351202 NIB  new in box etc. 1996

I dont buy or collect saws to set on a shelf, but thought folks might like this.   Needs to get into the right persons hands IMHO

If I didnt have like 6 of these already I might have bought it.

Picked a 351200 and a McCulloch 3516 today for $15.  No interest in the Mac but was willing to make the drive for the black saw.

Eager to tear in.

There has been folks with the black and gold ones have chrome bore and then folks with bare bores.  So seems a toss up on that the 358.351200

Dont matter which to me. But prefer chrome bore. 
Heck I have dads bought new bare bore 3300 to prove they last forever.

Please keep me from searching endlessly....what is the part number for the air cleaner.  Can't find my notes from when I built my neighbor one of these about 8 years ago.  Yeah I'm sure NLA.

Yeppers, already found that thread.  Thanks

Change the impulse, fuel, and vent lines,...reset the coil gap, and put another HDA 49 that I recently bought on...up and running. ;)

Single ring chrome bore '87 build.  Missing two screws (have) and the hand guard.   I'll need to try and find some of the plastic starter pawls in the future.  May add some foam or possibly some polyfill into the filter.

Cleaning and modding next.

I like $7.50 saws ;D

That should read '97 above.

Scored 4 spare starter dogs for <$12 to the door.  Plugged the knuckle coolers also.

Tempted to pull decals to stymie people. ;D

Threw a 16".325 Forester platinum bar on it to boot.  Looks teats.
