Title: Poulan 3750 badboy 380 60cc
Post by: Cut4fun on March 04, 2011, 01:28:06 pm
This one is a  Bad Boy Tim Allen edition. This is the 2nd 3750 I have had, but this is the first  TA edition on it.  1st one had a different style muffler, without the front deflector like this one does.

These saws run right with the stock 262xp's I had in the past and I tested one back to back with this one. 3750 was right on the heels in cut and 3750 feels to have just a slight torque disadvantage. 

While out cutting firewood and switching from 262 and 3750 back and forth with another cutter, both of use using the saws preferred the 3750 feel and handling in our hands.

Post by: Cut4fun . on March 04, 2011, 04:01:34 pm
Poulan made as far as I can tell.  basically a poulan pro 330 54cc with a big bore oem topend making it 60cc. open port cylinders.

MM might have more info on this poulan.

Post by: Cut4fun . on March 04, 2011, 05:01:38 pm
I cant answer that one, never been in a 365 poulan.

I do know the crankshafts are made in Sweden on them and the 60cc top end is made in Italy (girnolida) (cant remember the spelling, anyone ?) cylinder and piston kit.

I'm not completely sure if you could say that, they share the same piston but the cyl part # is different. Might be ported different or something else.

 I know its the same as the Super 380. I also know the 3750/380 run a larger carb the the PP365. The 330 also runs the bigger carb.

I know my 330 will give my 365 a run for its money and I have a HDA 137 here to try on my 365 if I ever get around to it.

Its not surprising that a unbiased user would prefer the feel of the 3750 over the 262 either. I really enjoy this series of Poulan saws, they just feel right and have the best control layouts. A stock 262 won't put much morre wood in the truck either.

The first 3750 I had. It also placed at a chainsaw race at the fairgrounds here in ohio in the 0-65cc class. The Dolmar 6400's  took the places in front of me from what I recall

1st one had just a hand guard and 2nd one has a chain brake.

I have been trying to get my early edition 3750 BadBoy 60cc back from a firewood cutter I traded it to a few years ago. He wont come off the saw when even offered bigger cc saws on trade  :'(. 

So I went looking for another early edition with hand guard instead of chain brake like my other later edition one.

Well  I stumbled across one on it's last day that had been run with a bow bar  ???. 

So how many of you poulan guys had bid me up on this one.



Title: Re: Poulan 3750 badboy 380 60cc
Post by: Modifiedmark on October 31, 2011, 09:24:56 pm
I seen it but didnt bid. I forgot too.  ::)

I forget what it ended up at but I think you did ok on it. I would kinda like to have one as well.

I have no doubt they run well.

Speaking of running well, I got a chance to look at that hot rod little PP330 that Randy sent to me to take to the Poulan GTG.

It was giving trouble when we tried it later in the bigger wood and wouldnt hold a tune.

Found it had a mushy impulse line. I checked the carb but didnt really find anything out of wack. I put a new impulse on it and decided that the original muffler deflector wasnt big enough so added a second cut in deflector on the other side.

Man does it run good now! Night and day difference. I was by myself and had no stop watch but man was it hauling through a 18" piece of oak. I got my ported 262XP out and I swear the 330 was running right with it and might even be ahead of it.

Its on its way back to Randy now and hopefully he will make a video of it. Man its loud now as well!!!

Mark I hope you seen that green 3000 that came down yesterday. It went real cheap.

 I would have but I'm all tapped out with saw buying right now. :(

I'm tapped too  :'( or I would have bid on both.  Been wanting to pick up some of these since I sold my PP305.  Did get a 2800 cheap the other day.  My saw money is going to be nonexistant for a while.  :'( I have to get rid of some and finish about 20 in the project pile.  Then let the buying commence. ;D  Got to have some of these saws.  PP305 was my first one of these.  Pretty impressed with it just couldn't turn down a buck and a half.  Only have emotional attachment for 1 saw (my Dad's 44 Husky).

Again, I seen it but kinda spaced it off. I think I had the opening bid on that one.

I have been looking for a super clean Green 3000 but that one was on the bubble as condition but I should have scooped it up for that.

Like Shep said I have been a little on the light side with saw funds right now as well.

I did make a trade for a newer super shape big saw mostly with the idea of it going to a local tree guy, but I have not heard back from him yet. If not it will be on the block to build the saw fund back up some.  ::)

Mark be glad you didnt get that 3750. Totally misrepresented saw  :o :o :o :o :o. Not as described.

 I'm tearing it down for a rebuild now as I am still going to keep it instead of sending it back.  Crankcase had been grinded on to allow for the bow bar, not just the plastic bar cover. Piston and cylinder had some scoring with ring stuck. Plastic top cover was melted away all around the muffler. Thats just in the 2min look over out of the box.
Hope bearings and seals are good to go.

Post by: Cut4fun on November 10, 2011, 07:38:41 pm
Now that other 3750 is fighting back some. The cylinder cleaned up great not noticeable at all and the piston has some noticeable carbon type marks but nothing to hang a nail on at all, even used old ring, it was just stuck (carbon IMO). Holds 150psi cold.

Need carb kit being it's not pulling fuel and runs on mix squirted in carb.

Ran new fuel line and had to install a new impulse nipple in carb HDA ( because plastic part of nipple was broke off in line) from a 066 carb had laying around. Will run new impulse line when carb removed this time.

For the life of me I cant find the tank vent on this one.  :-[ :-[  Another day.

Post by: OhioGregg on November 10, 2011, 10:02:53 pm
My memory is not real clear on the tank vent is on these. Been so long since I had my Super 380 apart. Be the same saw as the 3750.  Its kinda hidden and on the left side as I recall. Like behind a plug or screw or something. LOL   Not much help I know. As I recall, it will use the usual duckbill valve that Poulan uses on many of its saws.

Gregg,

One other thing that might help. I think you have to seperate the tank/handle from the engine/crankcase section to get to it. >:(    It is shown on the IPL's for both the 3450/3750 and 380.

Sweet. Does this saw have the dated sticker on the back right side of tank still. What year is on it?

I take it these were built same time frame as smaller saw brother 330?

Hmmmmm pull this 3750 topend and put on 330. Nah want real 380 super now.

Now I wonder can the 365 topends be swapped to the 330 3750 380 with bigger carb and intake? Does the cylinders from 365 bolt up. I never checked.

Now I wonder who bought that super clean looking poulan 3000 for $65 before I got home today.   :'( :'( :'(  Hope it was one of you poulan guys.  Markkkkkkkkkkkkkkk?
Title: Re: Poulan 3750 badboy 380 60cc
Post by: OhioGregg on November 11, 2011, 04:12:32 pm
Mine has a date of 1997 on it. I think the 330 can be upraded to the 380, same for 3450 to 3750. I think the 335 & 365 were a little different. They were also 54 & 60 cc'.  Little different design I do believe. Mark knows these pretty well.

Gregg,
Title: Re: Poulan 3750 badboy 380 60cc
Post by: Cut4fun . on November 11, 2011, 07:42:46 pm
The reason I ask this. The gasket kit that came for 3750 had 3 different base gaskets and 3 different muffler gaskets.
1 base and muffler gasket fit 3750
1 muffler gasket fit 365
1muffler gasket fit 3000
2 other base gaskets fit, I dont know yet.

I was just wondering if the bolt pattern was different on the 365 60cc by just a hair. I never measured them. Heck I just had the 365 in my hands tonight while I was adjusting carb and sending  the craftsman 3000 out for the woods this weekend.
Title: Re: Poulan 3750 badboy 380 60cc
Post by: Modifiedmark on November 13, 2011, 10:34:09 am
Kevin, I'm not sure if the 365 cyl will bolt onto the 380 or not. The part # for the 3750 and 380 is different then the 365/3500/3600. It may bolt on the case the same but there are probably some other differences, like intake etc.

Yep, I got the $65 3000. You should have been faster.  ;D Really I just found it on my phone while on break at work, called them and bought it.

I have a uneasy feeling about it though, we will see when it gets here.

It looked to run good in a video I watched in the morning of it.  I had put in in my cart before leaving but it wouldnt check me out on the site it was on. Check out wanted me to do local pick up, not happening.
So I went onto work and when I got home it was sold. I was just hoping it was one of you guys that was looking for a clean 3000.  I needed it like a hole in the head, I would imagine the same can be said for most of us. LOL

I put the 3000 in my watch list too.  Went to their website pulled it up to buy it.  Nature called when I got back it was gone.  Hope it runs as good as it looked.  I'll have to be faster next time ha ha!  Then I thought about bills XXXX.  Glad a Poulan lover got it.  It will have a good home.

Have any of you guys compared a PP365 or 3500 with smaller intake and carb to the PP380 or 3750 with bigger intake or carb? or even a PP330 54cc to the first 2?

  I am going to take the PP365, 3500 60cc and my 3750 60cc and PP330 54cc and compere them in the future with 20" bar buried with same chain on all 3/8 050 in hardwood to see if there is a difference. I am thinking besides the smaller carb there is some port timing difference in them.

Post by: Cut4fun . on November 16, 2011, 06:36:39 am
Well the ring may have been good enough to hold 150psi cold. But once started and warm I was getting blow by. So 3750 #3 is tore back down waiting new ring. 
Title: Re: Poulan 3750 badboy 380 60cc
Post by: Cut4fun . on November 16, 2011, 02:41:02 pm
Need some info if you know. The ring on 3750 380 365 if my measurement of worn ring is correct and bore of cylinder are correct. Is it 49mm bore by 1.5mm ring?

If so that would mean a stihl 039 MS390 and one of the stihl cut off saws, husky 460 570 would also work if I had one on hand.  Am I thinking right here?

What is the bore on 330 3450? Smaller I know, but what mm.

Post by: OhioGregg on November 16, 2011, 06:16:28 pm
Here is a video, if I can get it to show...LOL  I did probably year & half ago. Someone asked me how the 3700 & 380 compared. 61 & 60cc.  Well, I did this 3 times, and each time the 3700 is faster. Not a great deal, but it has more low end grunt & is stronger I believe.  The 380 has much more time on it since then, it is my "light weight" saw.  ;D

Nice and Thanks for the comparison, 3700 380.

 I only have a 4000 and know my 3750 is no comparison there IMO. 4000 has the torque that I say is missing a tad on the 3750 (wish it had that kind of torque). Glad you had a 3700 to show us a even comparison.

I think me and w8ye is going to hook up soon and run the PP365 3500 3750 330 3450 soon with same  chain. Dont know about us doing a video though, but might take a stop watch. Will see on video. Hmmmm could throw a 362xp in the mix. I know they wouldnt touch the 365 special.

I know my PP415 ate my 362xp after the 362 fresh rebuild. Now I wish I would have done the PP415 and 365SP when I had 2 of the 365SP. Heck could have thrown 4000 in that one.

Is that the one you welded back on?  Stuff like that makes you sick and mad.  Esp. since it was totally avoidable.  Bought three parts saws 261Husky among them.  Guy threw all three in the box no packing broke the ear off the 261 above the ID tag.  Not a real big deal BUT!

Nope different saw, that was a 415 another guy welded on after tree won the fight with him. (weld area he did not hold and just fell apart and the welded area just crumbled  and left a hole in area). I bought it from him as a box of parts and thought hmmm I wonder if. That same 415 was ran at the poulan gtg.

My redneck 415 fix looks like it will hold longer and stronger then the weak metal area on those crankcases.

 Maybe sometime during the weekdays before Thanksgiving or after?

You never ran a partner 5000 plus either?  If not I will get the 20" I got drilled for poulans and husky small mount with 72dl chain for all the saws.  I think I have a 72dl woodsman pro chain new in the box to run (warning not the best cut out of the box type  sharp).

I'm all out of 500's, just the 550 that is going bye and 5000's now.

Update I got the new ring for the 3750, but no time right now to play. Working 7 days a week to get some extra CHRISTmas $$$ and for another saw I want to put on the shelf too.  ;D ;)

New ring, and same blasted symptoms. Runs but not right and wont hold idle. Switched carb to like new one I just got in HDA 164. Same thing.
Starting to guess seals or maybe even the case seal has got a air leak into crankcase.

Good news is the hand guard on this 3750 works perfect on the JD 800 = echo 8000.  ;D  Plus found a good plain green clutch cover for it also.

On the shelf 3750 #3  goes till a much later date.

Yep crankcase seal leaking into crankcase. Time to split another down the road.

Well it's down the road and I could stands it no more.  ;D

In the basket there is a part I noticed in pic that dont go to the 3750. Anyone else catch what it is?

Well she may be a ugly 1998 TA Bad Boy, but  at least now it runs and cuts good.

You can see where the crankcase and old clutch cover were grinded on to clear the bow saw that was run on it.   Couldn't imagine it 60cc  pulled that very well.  ::)

I should have known better, but I offered and left the old rebuilt 3750 behind other day.   Hoping to get some more run time on it to break it in.
Me and 660mag was cutting up some test wood one day and on the way home I stopped at a friends place to BS. Well while I was there his landlord ask me to muffler mod and sharpen his chains for his 310.
Well I exchanged saws and he said the poulan wasnt running right and had to be run on half choke. 

 So guys what does it do to a saw that is being used in cuts on ash run on half choke when not running right?











First thing I looked at after carb adjustments was IMPULSE line which had come off.  Put it back on it it seemed to run fine with 140psi. Still I want to know more. Took muffler off and some scoring on new ring hmmmm. So I pulled it down ad even found a small corner piece off the skirt on 1 exhaust corner missing.

To end all. Then noticed the tensioner bolt missing.

 Nuff said on my part and LESSON learned if you dont know the chainsaw operators skill levels.

When my mid twenties grandson is helping me, I have to darn near rebuild the the saw every time I fill it up with gas.

I have to touch up and tighten the chain and blow out the clutch area and check everything about the saw.

I keep a hawk eye on him.  He'll run two tanks to my one but I'm having to look after the saws.

I have not see him rock a chain but the saw sure gets clogged up when he uses it.

What puzzles me is I havent found the missing corner piece of the piston skirt. I shook upside down, I just dont see anything anywhere.  It's big enough if it got into crankshaft it should have locked it up.  ???

One more look see and in the box she goes and on the shelf for another day.

Anyone know off hand the bore of the 60cc poulan 3750?

 I'm thinking the 54cc 3450 was 46.5mm not sure and not running out to the barn right now.

Never mind.

Went and used a bore stroke calculator and came up with 49mm bore.

You can still buy the 3750 top ends new real cheap. Then just bolt  them on 330 or a 3450 that isnt a 60cc already.

Yes #3  had a bow at one time and it is the one I had to split the crankcase do to bar oil getting into crankcase past seal. 

Also just put back together after loaning it out awhile back. Bad mistake  ::)  It's not perfect by any means.  Should have a new piston kit put in it but it's just a loaner back up type saw to me. You would crap looking at the old piston and wouldnt believe it cuts as good as it does with it.

Great information thanks for the reply.  Now I have a 3450, so can I just order the cylinder and piston and set this right on the old crankcase, and do I need to change the carb or anything else like covers linkage anything like that?

   Oh the TA 3750 you have can be welded and filled in where they cut it away.  But you would have to split the case again and send it along with the clutch cover to make it match up correctly then you would have to paint it. 
Title: Re: Poulan 3750 badboy 380 60cc
Post by: Cut4fun . on July 28, 2012, 03:06:27 pm
Yes everything can go right on the 3450 as a bolt up no changing nothing. Make sure your 3450 isnt one of the 60cc ones already.

Everything can be had new for $100 or less for the 60cc topend swap. Piston $40 range, cylinder $50 plus rangeup to low $60's. Shop around.

If I split that 3750 again in the future I will  let you know so you can fix that case side up. Thanks.

fastleo151  could you post more pics of your 3750 you bought a few weeks after I passed on it. It was the first 3750 labled saw I have seen with black covers.

Makes me wonder if it is the 3450 60cc just with 3750 stickers done at the factory or vice versa like 3750 and they just put 3450 stickers on 60cc's.

Not rejects. I just have to many of those still. If I only had 1 or 2 I would have scooped them up.  I'm down near 30-40saws now on one wall.  Used to be 3 walls full.

I tested my like new 3750 against a 262xp etc in nice clean even cants if you want to compare in the cuts with 3/8 same chain.

We also tested both out cutting firewood hardwoods back to back all day once.

We both voted for the 3750 over the 262 in handling, feel, comfort of handles,  etc, even though the 3750 had just a little less torque in the cut then 262.

I just noticed my 1st 3750 BB timbermaster (was on it too) with purple covers  had a black tank in this pic.  All my other 3750 BB saws had green tanks.

I was out today doing some fire wood cutting with Tim Allen 3750.   I had forgotten how good that saw runs and cuts.   I have not started and ran this saw for about 2 years now I am guessing.    This is one that I had bought and split the case because of a hole into the oil tank from the chain adjuster.    I did most of the welding from the inside of the crank case.

Runnin that 3750 today kind of motivated me to get started on the other one that I got from woodchuck, your old one Kevin.

I got my compressor in place today and I just need to bolt the motor and compressor in place.   
Then wire it up and put a regulator and water trap on it again.    I found my flex shaft today also and can get it put in a place so that it can be used also.   Once that is done then I can start working on some saws again.

Well the crankcase is welded up and put back together and the cylinder is cleaned up and I am getting ready to put it back on with a new piston and rings.   The cylinder cleaned up real nice and I lowered it by .020" giving me a squish of about .024" with out the base gasket.   I also opened up the intake port and exhaust port some by widening.   I left the transfers alone.  I hope to get at least 150psi or more out it when put back together.

You have me laughing.     It did get up to about 40 today so that was not to bad.   I have figured out though, that wearing gloves is a must when handling cold objects like cylinders.   Cold objects will suck the heat right out of my fingers...   

   I am hoping when done that this is going to be a great runner and will make it one of my firewood saws.   I also have a NOS chain brake and clutch cover that I will use on it.

Dang Roger ugly betty going to turn out to be a nice one in your hands.

History......#3  for me at the time.

That Time Allen BadBoy 3750 came from Ga off feebay and had been cut to use a bowsaw.  I had to split and fix crankcase  bar oil leaking into crank area.  Then loaned out and brought back scored up worse after first clean up.
I then traded it to ms460woodchuck after meeting halfway in Ohio in a 5 saw trade. He put it on feebay later on and low and behold 3000 fps has her in his mits showing her the welding and restore it needed.

How's she looking and are you going to touch the bare crankcase weld  to lime green?

Well I am done with the TA 3750.   This baby runs great but have not had a chance to put in wood yet or tune in wood yet.
 This week end that is for sure.

So what we have is:
Installed new piston and ring.
Installed new intake boot.
Installed new crank seals.
Installed new fuel line and filter.
Installed new impulse line with black rubber line.
Installed new HDA 134 carb.
Installed new chain adjuster.
Installed new chain brake and clutch cover.
Installed new bucking spike.
Installed new air filter.
Installed new intake carb gasket that I made.

Shaved bottom of cylinder off and without base gasket I got a squish of .024".
Widened up the intake port and the exhaust port.
Matched the muffler to the exhaust port and completed a muffler mod.
Used a 320 grit ball hone on cylinder to clean it up some.  It looked real nice.
I will be taking a compression test after I have run it a little more to see where it ended up at.
Advanced the timing by 4 degrees using the penny trick for a key way.
And of course welded up the area that had been ground away from a bow bar that was on it.
I am just going to leave it bare magnesium and no paint. 

This is a shot before welding.

This is a shot after welding.
(http://chainsawrepair.createaforum.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=95.0;attach=4625;image)

Here it is all put together and ready for the bar and chain.

Yep.  For some reason the black tops are around $7 (still cheap) and the purple tops are $5.  Not sure why the purples are cheaper.  You'd think that they'd be more expensive, as they were produced in smaller numbers.  Oh well....

The theory that has been posed before is that it was a way for Poulan to fit these saws with a longer bar (22") for marketing purposes, without taxing the saw too much (effectively it's more like a 20" bar with those stupidly long spikes).  I replaced the dumbo spikes on my PP330 with the shorter ones from an earlier saw in the series.  Sold the saw with those spikes..............and still have the dumbos sitting in a parts box somewhere.

I've used some of cut4fun's 3750's and they are a very respectable 60cc chainsaw. I had a Poulan 3500  60cc for some 15 years and liked it very well but then I found that his 3570's were a significant power improvement over the 3500 at basically the same size and weight.

You are right the 3750's run pretty good stock so you can imagine how this would run with about .030" removed from the cylinder base and then with the intake and exhaust port widened up and the exhaust matched to the muffler and the muffler also was opened up.   The saw still needs to break in so it will just get better.

You sure it wasnt 7 3/8 or a 8 325?   That drum should be small oregon spline. I have no 8 for that only special Danzco rims for small 8.

Well I could have swore that the rim had an 8 on it when I had it apart and I know that the chain is 3/8 along with the bar.  Now you have me wondering.

I took the clutch off of the 3750 today and Kevin you are correct it is a 7 pin rim.  I must have seen the 8 from 3/8 at a glance and it stuck in my mind.

Well I took a whole bunch of pictures of saws with their weight so I am no longer wondering.  Here is one of the 3750.   Power head only, no fluids, every thing on the saw as if ready to cut, like hand guard bar plates, clutch cover with bar nuts.   Remember this saw did not come with a chain brake which makes a big difference in the weight.

Jason Cerven = Yes sir i have but i came across it by accident, i was a Poulan Pro and Dolmar dealer at the same time through the early 2000's and coincidentally had a 380 and a new chassis Dolmar on the bench at the same time both for top end replacements due to customers running straight gas and got to looking at the rings and noticed they were basically identical, lol. Much cheaper through Poulan though if i remember right though.

If anyone is wanting to put a poulan 3750 60cc tim allen badboy TA BB    collection shelves

I am going to put this one into the right hands.  One of the nicer ones I have had with intact clutch cover decal and bar still have the screen print on it.

Local guy wants a 60cc to do his limbing in the logging he does. But I cant see this one getting wore out if a collector wants it.

What I have in it plus shipping or will trade for the right saw , bang bang , etc.  Throw ideas at me. 

I know wrong time of years but can wait till after new years for shipping etc too. 

Can get better close up pics later.  Before shipped pics and after unboxing.

I was going through the 3750 trade in  and noticed the  part #13 on page 2 in wrong place (in between outside carb and filter plate) and was missing part number #24 on page 2 that goes inside the intake boot and gasket goes on then carb.    poulan 3750 IPL http://s30387.gridserver.com/partsDiagrams/Poulan%203750.pdf

Noticed it had the heavy duty 3 shoe clutch. Will check later to see if a 137 carb or 164.

Glad I gave it a look over before getting ready for a couple collectors that are wanting one.

Just showing to always check your saws you take in before selling to others. Even though you are told everything is right in the world.
The gasket is shown on outside of carb and between the air filter base. The metal part where gasket goes onto inside intake boot was missing. IMO it would probably have gotten a air leak and burned up if not caught by new owner.
Going to put in new echo oem lines for impulse and fuel while in there. Plus the right size fuel filter.

Chit forgot pic of the HD 3 shoe clutch for new owner.

Turned out the 3450 parts saw I took in too has a busted tank on it I wasnt told about. I was checking it over to see what it needed for a build. Dang throttle lock area broke off the tank.   :D ::)

new lines and part installed in boot with gasket.

has the hda-137 carb too. Unreal thinking first bb I seen all 3 of them on saw. HD clutch, 137 and front exit muffler.

clean low hour saw IMHO

Found only 3 more things missing. Coarse AV outer screw and 2 rubber top cover bumpers. All put on the saw from my parts.

Anyone remember off hand if the HDA137 takes the same carb kit as HDA164?  I am thinking yes.

I had to know how well it cut. Runs great in start of cut then starts to bog like running out of fuel. So let off of cut catch up and do it again.  Last time I had one do this it was a stiff hardened diaphragm. 

So carb prob has original carb kit in it betting 18-22 years old.

Runs and cuts great. IMHO. But I still think the mounting area on boot might have a hair split in it from that piece missing before. I am thinking of pulling down and putting a new intake boot on it.  Better safe then sorry.

 Betting ole one has a small split right where it goes around the carb bolts. My WAG from what I am seeing. Will show pics when I pull carb and then old boot. I would bet on it.

 Never warmed up enough to leave saw with the rubber parts in shop with heater running. So brought it in with the boot I brought in yesterday to thaw out LOL
Pics of what I think may have caused a ever so tiny air leak. Dont see how with the inner metal part and then gasket on top of that, but not worth the chance IMHO with a $16 part and my offer for free labor.

pics old and new

I just want this saw 100% right in my mind when I send it out west.   I was at about 95% but the tune on H bothered me as it was not something I had seen on any of the past saws in this series.

Oh had to chuckle during carb rebuild and didnt catch it till cleaning up. Was missing the old  gasket on the pump diagram side. Somebody had the carb apart before.   :P
No wonder it was acting like a stiff diaphragm running out of fuel in the cut.  :D

Back ground on poulan TA BB I was told. Owned by a older lady that had bought new.  Guy I got it from bought it from her years back.  He used it to do some limbing back then and no use for it now.

Told me it was a 37cc beast of a saw.   I figure it must of been a beast to him  thinking the 60cc was a 37cc.  :P

Wow another good looking  BB.    Looks to be in nice shape.

Thinking the cleanest one with all decals too.  The nice one I sold Mike was missing the clutch cover decal. But otherwise just as nice.

I just wonder what happened to the original badboy bar. 
I wouldnt figure this to be the original bar but it matched the condition of the saw.

I'm getting to much into them but if I break even getting them into the right hands I will be happy.   

I know the parts alone come out way ahead what I have invested in the last 2 now. If such a thing was ever done.

I was guessing it was red armor by the way it looked.  Was being run rich too.

He just text me back and it was AMSOIL DOMINATOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing Oil. Interesting.

Looked alot like Red armor to me.

So who runs the dominator? Was it you Nate?

I have run the Amsoil synthetic racing oil before.   It seemed to work ok for me.   I got it for free from a guy in Cheyenne.   He wanted a single rod of AZ92a mag rod.    I never tore down a saw afterwards so I cannot comment on what it looked like in the cylinder.

Just wondered on it. This dominator reminded me of the way red armor coated stuff. 

Already dumped it into clear qt jar for look see. Like to see what is coming out of the saws I take in.   Will be putting KL-200 back in to see where it was set at some day. Guessing whatever the factory was. Due to the epla red and blue stops on it.

Not to shabby for 1998 to 2018 saw.

I ran the full skip on 24" but in dry hard ash buried. Ported 380 60cc no troubles. But when I mistakenly put it on stock 330 54cc first I thought wth barely getting through cuts slowly.   :P

Me too . But only difference when I was logging I didn't bore cut with that short bar when felling.
I guess because I didn't log hardwood like the eastern guys did.
Majority of my spruce and pine trees on a strip had a common lean in one direction.
Hardwood can have a bad lean every which way.

Stihl made a 20" ES bar with a huge 13 tooth 3/8 nose which is no longer available and correct me if I'm wrong...the east coast hardwooders loved that bar for all day bore cutting.
That's one bar I need for my collection, I had many chances to buy.

Poulan 60cc aftermarket piston for the 380 3750 365 3500 3.7

Guy I know putting one in a PP380. Pretty much he said the ring looks crappy.
Circlips wouldnt use, wrist pin looks thick and heavy (hope oem fits myself), so basicly looks like all you get is the bare piston and put caber or oem or stihl rings on it, use oem circlips and wrist pin.

3-$5 is what I normally pay, but I have gotten some from Fastenal to try in my own stuff for $1.99.
They seem like nice bearings so far. I have had them in my 372 and 262 for over a year.
I just like being able to walk in and out with them in my hand on the way home from work.

The guy I bought this badboy 3750 from seen it in the chainsaw repair group testing and ask if I would sell it back to him.  I told him no problem being the guy that I was holding it for hasnt paid for it as of yet as of 6-7 months now.
Was his grandfathers saw and he was having sellers remorse.  I told him it is coming back way better then received.

I had put new intake boot, like new 137 carb I had on hand to replace the 137 on it that had some blockage.  New echo oem black fuel and impulse lines.

I had it set up to be tested this weekend with a little planned gtg of some saw testing in 60cc range.  But since I shipped it yesterday I tested it and the echo 590 yesterday in a 8" round and 30" dry ash logs.   
3750 was running perfect now. 

Just so you know watch ups shipping rates as I have always used ups, but no more. They have went up sky high recently. Way more then fedex and usps. I left with the box yesterday because ups wanted $59.55 to GA for 19lb box with 300 ins, 24x16x15. fedex and usps were both way cheaper.

He is looking for a modern 70cc + saw and has 2 60cc poulans in great shape to trade for one. The other one is a 3450 but could be a type 3 or someone has put the 60cc top on.

Also just told me a stick edger and looking for something newer in the 50cc range. 5105,550,261. Anything 50cc really, just newer easy to source parts for. Also a top handle, preferably a 192t

ups is on a roll here. They get here about 6pm to drop off the 2083 box yesterday. Tracking showed it being out for delivery too. So I walk out to meet them.  They (there is 2) take awhile and come to the front and say your box is suppose to be on the truck but isnt here.  So far today no new tracking to state where the box is.  Guess I will be calling the main office in town today.

Saw I shipped out arrived safely with fedex at least yesterday.

I traded some parts with a guy in Oregon recently, I'm in Canada.
I sent my parts by ground with Canada Post, no insurance with a $ 1 value as a gift. Cost me $15 US.
My Oregon trading partner send his parts by Fed Ex. No insurance, no value as a gift. Behind his back (so he says) Fed Ex put a $100 value on it, and classified the Stihl 066 parts as US origin of manufacture. A few weeks later after I get the parts Fed Ex sends me a customs/duty bill for $40. My trading partner never got a bill.

Now Kevin all the parts I had UPS sent from you and others like Chainsaw Lady  I never got a customs bill.
So must be a difference between the 2 country postal systems and Fed Ex....or maybe Trump recently had something to do with it, lol.

 Think I will go check the tune on the PP380 since it didnt seen right in the big wood test we did over weekend and see how it does in the cant with same chain. It is a test saw that is being run with a minor scored piston and new ring. 590 owned the 380 3750 in big wood. But the 3750 turned the tables in the small ash log. So see how the 380 does.

590 scored piston 140psi  Before with carb stops removed.  3.25 2.94 2.90
After muffler mod.   2.84 2.78 2.75

380 still not running right after tuning. Has run on.   2.47 2.79 2.72

Got a used 60cc topend in.  Betting the sides of exhaust outlet is 1/4" blocked on both side.  The ring was all carboned up in groove too.  Wonder what oil and how rich they were running the poor saw.   

Will get pics in a bit.

Any poulan Tim Allen BadBoy collectors needing a 22" bar for their TA BB saw? I dont want to run this screen printed one figuring someone may want it for looks on their saw. Its used in good shape and the printing on it is what is left. Both sides shown. Open to trades or sell outright.

590 or 600?  I replaced the piston on a 600 I picked up. Runs pretty good after some tuning. Opened muff up a bit. Seems loud

Cant remember if I had put this poulan 3750 tim allen edition badboy ad from 1998 here.

Also one for sale in the chainsaw repair group. Looks like new. Only thing I seen wrong was the T handle.

Well the one box was a NOS NLA 60cc piston I seen other day I forgot I had. The other was a used 54cc piston in a box. Can see on intake side under ring pin where it has been rubbing the wrist pin etc in the box. Not really anything to worry about IMHO.
