Not I.  I never saw it.

I put the 1st bid but not really wanting it  though, just in case it snuck by bid.  Has 60 psi but was hoping it was a stuck ring and not straight gassed like they were told when they bought in group of saws.

I don't know 160 bucks for a saw with 60 psi.  I would say more likely scored piston then stuck ring, and good luck finding another piston and cylinder if it cannot be cleaned up.    Beware if this saw shows up for sale again.

I wasnt worried about piston. Only the cylinder. 

372 OEM or Meteor from husky I will use when I ever have to tear my other one down.  ;)   Should be drop in and better then stock poulan oem piston.

I count total cost = add  shipping so it was $210 in my eyes for a parts saw.

That was something I noticed.  I put my bid in over a hour from end. It wasnt 20-30 mins later someone bid after me way before the end.  I was thinking that too. Someone trying to get someone to rebid. LOL

Found another one and just paid for it. Uglier then the last and even more busted up.  Says it has a good p+c. All I wanted was the 70.7cc quad port cylinder from it.  ;D

Will post some pics I received.  Dont laugh now.

Per owner of PP445. = I'll give it a good cleaning and see what I have. The piston and cylinder looked pretty good through the exhaust.
Whole saw is covered in grease oil and dirt.  I washed the saw off and gave it a shot of mix and it fired but quits. Thing has a ton of compression but is not in the greatest shape, it has a missing piece on the case above the oil fill point and a bunch of fins missing on the recoil, the chain brake is intact.

With those chain tooth marks on the brake lever, it looks like it was in a chainsaw fight?

Looks like it is all there.   Except for the case being broken looks like you did ok.    Interested now to see how it runs.

Got home opened the box today and tried to pull over, no go.  So I tore into it.

Saw pulled over and started on prime?  It is locked up at the crank and big end bearing is out. Crank no good.

Ring was stuck on piston and wrist pin LOL but I was able to get the everything off to save that part.  Got the ring off and wrist pin out.
