Poulan 330 380 Brake band
« on: November 01, 2017, 11:35:50 am »
Does anyone know if the brake band for Husqvarna 51,55 is the same part for the 330/3450 series of saws?

I imagine the husky 266/268 bands are not the same size.

Anybody ever do a comparison?

Thanks

Never compared brake bands to anything else. Might also check 262 261 husky as I know the brake handles were that same.

Do you have a 262 in house to measure?  Clutch drums on the 330's are 2 7/8".   Are the husky's similar from 55 -268?

Follow up for resource info.
Clutch O.D. for 55 rancher matches this series of Poulans.

Ordered two bands from china.  Will report back once installed.

I would like to also add that this brake was mostly never used.

Wear must occur from thermo plastic shift, aka warpage, to cause the band to rub clutch drum in normal use.

I wonder what weight penalty a magnesium cover would have added to these saws?
