That isnt a 335  piston  http://www.ebay.com/itm/POULAN-3450-PRO-335-PISTON-KIT-46-5MM-REPLACES-530071321-OR-530010989-NEW-/381374548122?hash=item58cbb1c89a:g:AAoAAOSwTapV3U90

That is like the one in the predator 335.

PP335 is 2 thin rings.  That is like 330 3450 piston with 1 thick ring.

Go to Ordertree .com or Ereplacement parts .com to look at poulan stuff that is listed right.

Well then based on that and what you said earlier, that piston would work with a plated 335 cylinder, correct?

If that is a bare piston yes. OEM is about same price last I looked. I would check OEM first.

I have taken a couple of 335's that I have sanded down the cylinder base alittle to increase the squish and advanced the timing, modified the muffler, and widened the intake and exhaust ports a little.   You can also port match the muffler to the cylinder by using the gasket as a guide.   For the size and weight of those saws they kick butt pretty good.   I probably have the timing too far advanced because I do get some pretty good kick back on the rope sometimes but, once they are running they do run good.

Awesome.  I am going to removed the base gasket and flat plate cylinder base to remove some material, and I will clean up the porting and match the exhaust as well.

I have a PP5020 and I love how that saw runs, but this one feels a hair lighter and I am very excited to see how it runs by comparison.  If I can get a 335 top end for it I'll be even more excited.  I would love to have something I could put a 24" bar on- the 5020 wouldn't pull one, but maybe this could.

54cc and 24" just dont go together IMO. 

Unless your cutting softwoods and full skip chain. PNW folks seem to do that.

Roger @3000 FPS  did you see any difference in your PP335 cylinder and the Predator cylinder.  The PP335 shows updating to the Predator part numbers.

I really did not see any difference in performance from the regular 335 and the predator 335 and I modified them both.


Drew_Uth if you build a saw with the predator 335 it will run circles around that 5020.   I have 5 of the 335's and 2 of the 5020's.    But it will not run a 24" bar.   There is no replacement for displacement.   I like using my 65cc saws for 24" bars.   You can go 60cc's but I think that it is marginal.   Just my 2 cents.

Well then I guess I need to buy some 335 parts!

I put it together last night with the parts I had on hand.  It was a plated cylinder and two thin ring piston, I did not measure either so thats the best I can do for identifying them.  I didnt modify the ports in the bore, however I did open them up (both intake and exhaust) to provide better flow into the cylinder.  Baby steps.  I did flat plate the cylinder base and remove the base gasket, being that it was a used top end this gave it a huge boost in compression.  Lastly, I removed the screen and baffle plate in the muffler for now- I have a second muffler that I am going to really modify tonight. 

It fire up in two pulls, dead cold after being apart.  Runs suuuuuuper crisp, I just richened the L a tiny bit as it seemed to be idling a bit high and not dropping down quickly enough when I chopped the throttle.  It was just some shop run time as it was late and dark, but it seems to run really great- I am going to sink it into some wood today after work, I can't wait. 

Thanks for the part numbers! I will be ordering the 335 parts next paycheck and building the other bottom end I have.  I'm up to 6 saws, and I just gave one back to my dad.  The 335 will make 7...I think its safe to say I have CAD.  All Poulan/Craftsman, with one lone Pioneer P28 (Granddad's saw) hanging out as well.  Its green so it stays haha.
