Thank You.

I was thinking like removing from material from bottom of a cylinder redneck way. Would probably be to time consuming and to hard  keep close to square that way.

The reason I do not sand it down that way is, it might hit the rubber portion of the seal.   

Really it does not have to be perfectly square as long as you drive it in you do it square.

Not considering cutting so thin you hit the back side of the inner lip on the seal . . .

I've sanded cover plates down with sand paper on a flat surface. To assure squareness I checked with the calipers in four places and would bias the pressure on the thick corner. Worked out well for me.

You just need to be careful when cutting.   It really was not difficult.

When I get to having to try it this way. I am going to try it your way first. I just know I am not to steady with the hand piece doing mufflers, cylinders etc.

Yea I thought I would throw that on there for kicks.   It looks louder than it really is.   Almost all my saws are MM to some degree so it is what I am used to.

That muffler was like the 365 in that it had an outlet on the front with a deflector spot welded over the outlet so the exhaust would exit side ways.    I ground that deflector off and welded the hole in.

Exactly the Poulan 3500 and 365 both seem to come with that style.
