Mine is Neuropathy. My my mother had it. Neighbor across the highway has it and he used to be a tool and die maker.. A guy I worked with who is 4 yrs younger than me has it so bad you can see him shaking just standing there. He does beautiful woodworking at home.

Same thing as diabetic nerve pain.

Roger your 3500 looked to have a side exit or did you use a different muffler?

That muffler was a front exit that I welded in and then cut the side open for the triple pipe.

You might be on to something though.   It could be the year the saw was made that determines what type of muffler it has.

Me too Jim. I'm horrible and getting my dad's shakes dont help.  He said in Vietnam while building bombs he had to make sure to time the shake.  :o

He finally got it diagnosed. but cant remember what it is called.
Was it Parkinsons?  My Granddaddy had it, broke my heart seeing him try to drink a cup of coffee or eat peas with a fork.

I agree it's probably YM & Type.

Well I have been working on the 3500 again.   
This time I changed the carb over from a HDA 49 to a HDA 164.
I already had the intake boot that I bought several years ago.
The metal plate that fits between the intake boot and the carb I made myself along with a gasket too.
The conversion is pretty easy and the saw runs good. 
How much better it runs is hard to say since I had not run the saw for several months before converting it to the larger carb.
But the saw should have as much power now as 3750 since it is basically the same now.

Good job on the conversion.

Maybe I'll convert mine because it's a pretty good saw?

It is a pretty easy conversion to do.   The tank does have to be separated from the crankcase in order to replace the intake boot to the larger one but other than that not a bad job.
I would like to know what you think with the before and after.
