Just an up-date, It has set about 3 days now so I needed to cut some brush this afternoon so I took the 500 out. One pull and it ran perfect,.. it is nice to have something you worked on end up running great when your done. Between this site and another, lots of reading and great folks answering some questions for me and I feel like an old hand at repair now !!

Thanks yea I have to think about things sometimes for awhile before an idea dawns on me.
 3000 I see in your signature you have some of the large older P P's I have tried to search on C L and in a local buy sell magazine but when I search Poulan Pro all I ever see is the new homeowner 33-38 cc saws is there a better way to search when looking for the 1980's / 90's PP's so I can zero in on the older "real " Poulan Pro saws? I have a local dealer that used to sell them so I know there should be some around.

Nope no certain way to search for them. Just got to get lucky IMO.  I have maybe 6-7 other part saws on the shelf too and maybe 3 bins full of parts.

Now forget all about this series and move on. ;)   Pleassssssssse   :D

1 of these 2 505 is 3000fps saw now in his sig.

I hope you know I'm just joking above. I will help you in any way I can.
Maybe not send you a NOS piston for a 475 like I did for 3000 when he was looking,  but will help  when I can.

I do have to admit that I do mot see them as often as I used to.   Like Cut4fun pointed out just search all the places you know.

I was in a gun store in Cheyenne looking at holsters and I get to talking with a guy and I find he is a retired tree service guy.   I tell him I collect chainsaws and I ended up getting 3 saws from him.   So you never know.

That 475 is a great running saw Kevin.  Thanks.
The 505 is not bad either.    I have some decent size ash here right now that I have been using those saws on.
I fired up the Jonsered 2083 this morning.   First time in about 3 years since I bought it.   Runs great.

The biggest saw  I own is an old P-70 I  would like a newer 7000+ or something a little faster than the 70. It runs fine, plenty of grunt for what I do but not real high rpms ya know. Some day I would like to find a Poulan Pro I have a 325 pp now so I am always on the look out. It would be fine if it needed a little tinkering I need something to putter on during the winter's. Don't take this like I am hinting I don't mean it that way at all just explain what I am thinking about.

Poulan 325 is a Partner 5500. basically a 5000 49cc updated carb choke and bigger bore 53cc = more grunt in cut. Have owned 2 of them.
