McCulloch 2.0
« on: January 30, 2013, 05:22:23 pm »
This came in today and pics is as delivered.  I am guessing a McCulloch 3200 = 2.0 ? 

Also do these have a adjustable oiler?  I couldnt find anything to adjust.

Guy said it hadnt been used in close to 12 years. 

Funny thing or not so funny is the name under the air filter cover etched in is a guy I used to know and work with years ago. He has been deceased for some time now.

I had one of those for abt 15 yrs. I never had any trouble with the oiler but had to put new fuel lines in it.
I had another that was 38cc and the oiler quit. I put some kerosene in the oil tank and no more oiler trouble.

If you take the muffler off, it will fall apart into several pieces. You can remove the two baffle plates and ream out the outlet some and it runs a lot better.

I've never seen one and doubt I have an IPL for one but I'll check .However if it's built like most minis it will have a screw adjustment up front near the oil tank right hand side .

I can not see any difference in a FR 2.0 and a 3214.

There's a problem with what AL said  "up front near the oil tank" and that is the same problem that always plagued me. The problem is that the oil tank is in the rear at the handle. I filled my front gas tank with bar oil more than once.

Here's a list of Mac models

The FR 2.0 was a refurb saw and I bought mine from Odd Lots and it had some saw dust in it but had a new bar and chain

The oil pump appears to be on the flywheel side and is scroll driven from the crank but I don't see any adjustment?

Thanks for the info.

I never did find any adjustment and the oiler started working good after some time running it and checking it. Think it must have been from just setting empty in the oil tank and probably old bar oil in the oiler, setting he said close to 12 years.  ???  Alls well now and back in his hands.

Well I wasn't sure how the thing was made but evidently it's not like the original mini mac design .Actually that's a good thing .

The impulse type pump the minis used was the weak link  on those little things.It should have worked because as a rule the pumps worked well on every other McCulloch . Too little and tiny perhaps .

There is a a small amount of commonality between a mini and one of the newer plastic designs such as the 3214.

But there is a world of difference in the ergonomics and generally, the 3214 types hold up pretty well for what they are.

Like I said, I had one for 15 yrs and used it often in the warmer months. The only problem I had was to replace the fuel lines about two years ago. I just used regular Tygon. It has the original spark plug. I had trouble with it not oiling good one year but I ran a tank of kerosene through the oil tank and it cleared up.

With the screen and baffle plates removed from the muffler, the chainsaw runs respectable for a 32cc plastic saw. As they come from the factory, they are very quiet and sound like they are running about half speed.
