Poulan 365
« on: March 17, 2011, 12:40:08 pm »
I know its the same as the Super 380. I also know the 3750/380 run a larger carb the the PP365. The 330 also runs the bigger carb.

I know my 330 will give my 365 a run for its money and I have a HDA 137 here to try on my 365 if I ever get around to it.

Just got a 365 60cc  in on trade. Was  told that it will start but not stay started. Havent had time yet to check anything over.

So is the 365 like a older version of the 3750?

More likely the older version of the Super 380

See if you think what I am thinking on this. Saw idles fine when cold and first started up.  Get saw warmed up and wont idle.
New fuel line and impulse line was already on poulan 365. So I pulled the carb apart to check diaphragms and fulcrum height. Carb kit looked new, but I went ahead and replaced the needle and fulcrum.
Then went to make some test cuts, runs cuts and still no idle for crap.

So quick check for a air leak. Turned on one side and then other side, off raced the idle when flipped to the other side. 

So my guess is leaking crankcase seal and will check main bearings when looking closer.

Could be a bad carb boot . Make sure someone didnt use tygon for a impulse line as well.

Yes tygon or at least it's clear yellow and is used on the impulse line ( I think forester is sending some cheap clear yellow line over and people are selling it on ebay as tygon). Why is this a bad thing and why would it cause this symptom? 

I gave boot a quick look see, and didnt see anything, but removal of boot before seals is coming.

I have used tygon for impulse line on most of  my race saws 5 cube 372, 4ci 262, hotsaw 166.

Keven  short term the Tygon style line will work but it wont take much heat and gets to giving trouble after  a while.
