Poulan 3000 & Craftsman 3.7 CV
« on: January 13, 2014, 07:13:51 pm »
 Does the Poulan 3000 share the same bottom cases as the 3450 or 3750? Have my eye on a 3000 but the engine is not operational and isn't a factor.  I just like the style of this saw and might ending up hod rodding it.
 
On the C/ 3.7, are these a good saw ? They look sturdy and I'm assuming with this sturdiness, weight is on the heavy factor ;D. Anyway  I've got my scope zeroed in,just need to choose which one.

I was looking at the part numbers for the 3450/3750 and they do not share the same number for the 3000
So I would say the crankcases are different.   How they are different I do not know.

As far as the Poulan 3700 counter vibe saws go they are good saws with good power.   They are an older saw but parts are still able to be found and there is a lot of used parts on the internet still.    They are also an easy saw to work on.   I believe they are 60cc.

A red/black Craftsman 3.7 could be a Poulan 3700 or 3800 (if it's not a horizontal cylinder Roper built Craftsman 3.7 of course).  Both the 3700 and 3800 are 61cc. 

A 3700 has a chromed bore, bare piston, and thin rings.  A 3800 has a chromed piston, bare bore, and thick rings.  Most (but not all) red/black 3.7's are 3700's.

A grey/black 3.7 would only be a 3800 and not a 3700 (despite what ebay sellers like to say in their listings).


Red/black and grey/black 3.4's are all 3400's.  To further complicate things, there was a "3.0" labeled grey/black Craftsman saw in this series that was actually a 56cc 3400 (and not 49cc/3ci as stenciled on the bar of the saw).  They did that to meet a lower price point.  A case of getting more than you paid for.:D

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.

grey 3.0 49cc I have is the bare bore version of the 3000. 305 is the poulan pro version in yellow 49cc.  The 54cc tops from 335 3.3 craftsman poulan 3300 can also be put on these. Just so you know.

Yep.  To further confuse things there was indeed a grey/black Craftsman 3.0ci 49cc saw (that really was 49cc) in the newer 2800/3000/3300/etc saw series.  The grey/black Craftsman 3.0 in the CounterVibe series is really a 3.4ci/56cc 3400 though.
