Poulan 4620
« on: November 28, 2012, 01:12:35 pm »
Had a poulan 4620 dropped off  today.  Also has a bunch of letters before and after numbers, will get them later.
 Haven't really looked at it yet, just a quick glance.  Seems to look a lot like a  295.

The complaint is the chains wont stay tensioned. Said there was some weird tensioner system on it.  All I noticed was a tool less   clutch cover when I glanced at it.

Any known issues or suggestions?

If he does want me to replace with a older style clutch cover if this turns out to be the problem, what all models   work on this? 295 and ?

I was thinking the 4620 was the Poulan and the 295 was the Poulan Pro?

Seems I remember one was chromed and the other was Nikasil?

4620 is a poulan pro and looks to be a newer 295.

PP4620AVX  if my memory is right.  Pics loading to tell for sure.

NOT a fan of this cheap flimsy clutch cover tool less thing that tightens on 1 bar stud.  ::)

Also the reason it dont keep the chain tight. There is 2 metal gears and 1 plastic gear using 3 gears to adjust tension. Guess which one is stripped.   Why a plastic gear there.

Has anyone tried to put a regular poulan tensioner in these?  Thinking about trying that route.






Interesting they have went with coil on topside now.

After seeing how these are made I might be able to just flip the plastic gear and put bad side gear away and use the good end. Know here in a bit.   ;)

No such luck. The one I am working on is the old style  and molded one piece plastic.

Some folks have drilled the AVX cover to convert it to the standard tensioner.  I've never tried it,  I would lean toward replacing the AVX cover with a AVHD cover.   You'd need to dig through some IPLs to find out which others covers (295, 2900, 4218, etc.) would work.

I'm a chainsaw hoarder & tinkerer.  The brand isn't usually important,  if the price is right I'll probably buy it.

I ask. Owner dont want me switching things, even the crap plastic bar stud clamp.  ::)  Said he got it for Christmas 07-08 and wants to keep it original.  Oh well I tried. 

Still waiting on the 2nd part of the new updated 2 piece part when they sent just 1 of the parts  >:(. Heck I even ordered another here in Ohio hoping one would show up soon.
