Poulan 3500 3600 3350
« on: September 16, 2011, 10:31:02 pm »
I have a Poulan 3500 Type II that I bought at the local TSC store in 1998. The list price at the time was $399 the best I can remember.

It is 60cc with the Gilardoni cylinder. 20" B&C safety chain. It still has the original B&C in the picture. The hold down for the air box cover is a screw instead of a knob. The muffler is a empty box. The muffler outlet is a rectangular hole in the front with a deflector shield spot welded over the front directing towards the chain.

I cut mostly dry wood and have had to replace the fuel filter about 4 years ago and this spring I had to put a new diaphragm in the regulator. I consider myself using this saw a good bit but as you see there is not much wear shown. I've always run it 32:1 mineral oil.

There is no chain brake. If you come across a real IPL for one of these, you will discover that the cylinder and other parts are different between Types I, II, & III.

3500

It has been several years since I paid any attention to the type # of the saw. I'll have to look at it and see what it is? Seems I remember going over all this back 12 yrs or so ago?

Just picked up a pretty nice 3500.  Supposed to run good.  Started taking it apart for a bath last night.  Found the impulse line @ cyl. gone.  Crap I hope they haven't screwed the piston.  Will pop the muff. today and see.  Wife fell and broke her pelvis Mon. night so things have been a little crazy here.

I hope your wife manages OK with the set back

Here are images (for reference) of my 3500 that I bought new in the late 90's. It is all original.

If it is still running you probably haven't hurt aynthing too badly.
Expect the carb to be completely out of adjustment when you replace that impulse hose!
Mine just quits when  the impulse hose comes off.

That 3750 I just redid again would run with impulse line off of cyl if it was on half choke.  ::)  This was per the guy I loaned it to while I was working on his stihl.

He said it wouldnt idle etc and wouldnt cut unless at half choke.  First thing I checked was carb then impulse line.

First thing I look for on these saws is impulse line most are dead or missing.  Pulled muffler yesterday.  Piston has scoring on ex. side.  I think/hope it will cleanup.  Don't want to put a lot of $ in it.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/251094190720?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

I was looking for 365 3300 stuff today and stumbled across a non running parts saw. I'm guessing a 3500 3600 or maybe even a 3350 I have never seen before. 

Have way to much in it for full out repair  if needed, but  figured parts is parts.
