Did you ever get the PP 365 running?

Well I passed on a family trip in town to get into the 365 and 236 today. The 365 needs crank bearings and seals.  Still runs but you can watch the crank movement and then when not running make it clunk clunk back and forth by hand and a little noticeable up down.

 No biggie it's younger brother was there to compare to and really likes it's dawg  ;).

I was getting a order ready for the poulan 365 crank bearing and seals. I noticed that the crank bearing have the same common bearing number as the 372 husky. Am I seeing this right?

Had some time to kill today. Just like the PP 330 I tore down the PP 365 dont use a crankcase gasket, only sealant.  Sweden made crankshaft  ;).
Piston had some scoring on exhaust side and ring stuck. How it ran like it did is beyond me.

Bottom right shows the worm gear puller. Those things are the cats  ::) to use to get the worm gear off the crankshaft.

Is the piston salvageable?

MOS. Last night talking with a guy at his daughters graduation party.  Talked turned to chainsaws after having to get the 4x4 and partner 500 to go get some more bonfire wood. He was telling me he needs a hook up for a bigger saw now that I had shown him the error of his ways in the past. I am the one that gave him the partner 500 muffler modded and runs full skip 3/8 20" cutting hardwoods buried.  :o  NOT MY CHOICE.
So now he wants more cc.  ;D   I told him when I am finished with the 365 and it is deemed firewood cutting ready, it will be his for free.

So MOS you giving me that saw on a trade and then me doing labor and parts will be going to a good cause. Guy has been on unemployment for a year and half at least now. Big Diesel mechanic at landfills after his company got bought out and new company  brought their own roving diesel mechanic with them.

Just a update where it will be going.  ;)

I just converted a PP330 (New Old Stock) to a SD380 (60cc like the 365) by putting a new jug and slug on it. While I had it off, the cylinder lost about .045", the piston got a raised center of about .040", intake and exuast widened as much as I dared,  transfers were raised to about 22* blowdown, compression came in at 190 psi, and it runs pretty decent pulling the .375" x 22" bar.

I'll get some pictures and videos posted this weekend as it is now my favorite "go to" saw.

I'm new to this site so take it easy on me guys.......

  Bet she is a pretty sweet running saw with all that work and psi.  Did you do anything with those open transfers?  Pics pics pics  ;D

I have owned 2 60cc 3750 and both of them run as good as the 262xp and ms361 IMHO.  The latest one is posted in a thread here.  http://chainsawrepair.createaforum.com/poulan/poulan-3750-60cc/   

It is as new looking as you can get without being NIB.  Bad Boy one has chain break and the first 3750  had hand guard and no BB decal.
