Another poulan 245

Figure worst case becomes a parts saw or a project for someone else. Poulan 245.
No coil wire I can see. Muffler repaired.
But have a 306 parts saw here too.

While waiting for parts. Dug in that 74cc poulan.  Coil and flywheel on 306a parts saw different style then 245a.
By looking at 245 piston I donít know if it would have been a runner anyways.  Ugly looking. 😋
So both parts saws now if anything needed.

I was hoping going to be same. But one is prob early points style on the 306. The 245 is later style no points.

Shoot just thought of something. I should put what is needed on the 306 to see if it will start.  P+C are nice in it.

Is 245A cylinder the same except for decomp hole?

Trying to help guy build another with some parts.

hotshot info = If I remember correctly, the only revision difference in plain A & SA was the auto sharp feature.

That looks like an early 11563 model. Have seen three different cylinders 5300-11564, 11563 & 11525.

The jugs were all the same bore size & will interchange, but may require plugging the decomp up & finding the correct tin muffler assembly in order to reuse it.

Not sure if the SA revision covered all the other changes like elimination of the points & decomp hole, a different tin muffler can & added the rear cylinder boss mount style.

That ugly as sin carbon up piston 245A and 306 parts saws I sent to a guy with a 245SA needing the cylinder etc.

Looks like he is making good with the A on the SA.

Before and after. The before is how it came to me with base gasket.  After is after him cleaning up and putting on SA without gasket.
