Is the duck bill like whats on a homelite super2 type saws?  I have a craftsman 2.0 at home is that a micro?  The barb fitting says leaves are wharehouse in 5-10 days, I would roll thru the husky dealer, but I don't really want to take half the saw apart, probably what someone started to do that landed this thing as a parts saw to start with ;D  I guess I am either going to have to swap tanks = take half the saw apart, 372 vent = take half of saw apart, or try & find that barb locally.  I'll have to look closer at the saw with the goo on the extra tygon coming out the tank, Kevins redneck type of repair!

The 530026119 duckbill valve is a current Poulan and Husqvarna part #, as that valve was (and still is) used on some Husqvarna machines.  Your dealer should stock it.  The double barb fitting they can order.  The Micro application fitting can also be ordered through them, and may be in stock as the Husqvarna 23 was a Poulan Micro in orange clothing as well.  Your Craftsman 2.0 is indeed a Micro series saw, and is basically a private label Poulan 2000.

You can use the Homelite 69451 duckbill (as used in many Homelite gas caps and also in the oil and fuel tanks of an XL2/Super2) here as well.  It may be too loose for the 'correct' double-barb fitting..............but is a good fit on the Micro double-barb fitting.  Those duckbills are still sold through Oregon and Stens dealers.


I just started a new thread here covering this tank vent retrofit.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Having a Masters degree in Redneck engineering, I can tell you with certainty that although tygon is a poor impulse line, if you can't find the right size line, a 3/8ths inch long piece of tygon will make a suitable shim inside an automotive line that's too big.
You can cut the end at an angle to facilitate installation.
Make sure you have a squeeze clip that will make it nice and snug.

Should there be any side to side play on the crankshaft?  I think i got more problems than the vent.  I added the duck bill setup to it, and no change:(

These have side to side play. Seems real sloppy side to side play compared to what you get used to IMO. But they work.  Just make sure no up down play.

I dont remember your symptoms. But seals are common on these for the ones I worked on,  impulse line, carb kits, intake boots,  base gasket crack or leaks, etc.

I seems to run great at first start up, then when it hits the wood, bogs 0 power.  I just had thought about the 1/16 side to side play & wondered about it.  I guess i will go order the dolmar fuel line & wait for it to come in & check it all out at once.
