Poulan 2000
« on: December 07, 2018, 01:36:49 pm »
My old Poulan 2000 is at least 30 years old. Maybe 38. So when it quit, I figured it was the typical deal of replace all the rubber parts. I totaled up the cost of fuel hose, carb kit, spark plug and plug boot. then I added $100 and ordered a new PP3816AV. It looks like the closest thing to the old saw except it has a slightly larger engine with forged crank & rod and of course it has one of those 2-hole carburetors and a blade brake. I like the lightweight saw and call it my "Old Man Saw". The big boys are so heavy that by the time I climb to where the tree is and pull the rope a few times I am already tired. I can cut more wood when my arms are not worn out from a huge saw. Anyway, I went out to the barn to reassemble the old saw so I could keep the parts together, and I found a tiny piece of sawdust stuck in the reed valve. Happens every few years... clean it out and the saw is fine again. So now I've got two saws, darn it! Guess I'll need a helper.

I got back a poulan 2000 I had bought in 94. Still going only a coil gone bad and carb kit and lines.

I had a 3816 or maybe it was 3516 newer strato design. Get you a spline carb tool, makes tuning easy. Come lean from factory most times.

yeah, got the carb tools ordered. My old saw looks just like the one in back of your photo, but mine has a 16" bar. I'll post a pic but am waiting for new fuel line before I put it together.

Yes 2000 in back. When bought mine new it came with 16".   I switched it to 12".   Just got it back from dad with 16" on it again.

I have a bunch of parts for these if needed. Plus craftsman 2300cva version I dont use. 1800 that runs but started to scuff piston it looks like when muffler was pulled last time.

Thats a poulan XX 20 in the front.

Little top handle 2000 I had bought in 94 new and later gave to dad to replace that mini mac I despised.

Well this year dad had gave me back 3 saws I had shown earlier while I was down hunting.

I was curious on the condition under the grime and if I could get it running. Well lets just say I made plenty of test cuts with 14" buried after a little fight with it.

Back to the 12 again.      Square filed PS3 for chain too.

Bought in 94 new and later gave to dad. Got it back during deer season.
