Looks like the 365 has seen its last cuts in this configuration.  I offered to help a guy out that had his flywheel explode in half on his 3500. Offered him whole saws in 3500 or 365 or parts needed.

So I will be pulling 365 crankcase, recoil cover shell, inner air dam, flywheel, top cover for his new project build.   Shame to do it to a running cutting saw but I have plenty of them. 
Plus it will be transplanted into a saw to get back up and runner for another.

Owner of the 3500 is very lucky to not have been injured IMHO.  Here is the 3500 pics that the 365 will be rebuilding.

Tear down done. I think I could almost do these series in my sleep or eyes closed.

 :D :D :D :D :D  I did make 1 newbie mistake. I forgot about the recoil spring not being encapsulate in plastic.

Wow that would have been exciting.  He is indeed lucky to not be missing part of his left hand or other important bits.....
-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.

Seems to me something happened to that fly wheel before running it or something foreign came loose while it was running.   Split in half like that weird.

Someone in another thread where we are talking about this. Brought this up. Wonder if he had used a impact to tighten the flywheel nut down with. Got too tight and fractured it.

I have used an impact on flywheels plenty of times.    Unless he got some 600 pound impact driver and drove the nut on like no tomorrow.

Just trying to come up with something as to why. That is just crazy busting in half like that.

Reason I say this. I have been racing with a gas saw before and be full throttle and catch the brake handle on a up cut and instant stoppage. Nothing broke.

Had to be something wrong or done to that flywheel in the past.
