Poulan 3450 60cc
« on: March 09, 2013, 05:38:14 pm »
Well I got floored today. I thought all poulan 3300 were 54cc and bare bore chrome piston.

ms460woodchuck can you take a pic of the top of the cylinder on the one I traded you?  I might come across a pic of when I had it, but just in case.


To start off I set this 3300 on the shelf about a year half ago or more. Today I pulled it down and first thing I notice it has fins on the top of cylinder. I looked at sticker and it did say 54cc  ???  and date of 2003.

What dates were the 3300 made? I know somewhere in mid 80's to ??

So I had to dig deeper and found a chrome bore swooped transfers 49mm 60cc top on this saw.   ;D

Somebody swapped top ends there.  Does a 3500 or 3600 have that style transfers?
-Aaron

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.

I have a 3500 on the bench too and it has same numbers across cylinder.   Thats what I was thinking.

 All looked like never been messed with before. Just never seen a cylinder so snug as a bug and didnt want to come off. 

Was doing the happy dance though.  8)

 No pics Kevin but mine is not 60cc. I am growing partial to my 3000. The thin double rings seem to make the 3000 have more snot than my 3300 even thought the bore is less. I wonder what my 3000 would run like with the bigger carb and air filter set up off of a 3450/330...hmmmm

I was planning on putting a 60cc on the grey craftsman poulan 3000   ;D with big intake and carb from 330 etc.  Ask 3000 fps I told him this a few days ago.

Had a poulan 305 and loved it should have never parted ways with it or the 335. But I dont grow partial to nothing. I actually had to price a saw at the mini gtg today.

You may or may not be able to do that. There is a bolt pattern change in there somewhere as I tried to put a 60cc top end on a 335 and the 60cc had a wider bolt spacing. I'm not real clear as to when this happened but some fit and some don't

I thought the 60cc 3500/3600 saws had the same 'smaller' pattern as the other earlier smaller displacement saws, while the 3450/3750/330/380 saws had the larger pattern.  I may be mistaken however....
