Poulan Micro
« on: April 10, 2014, 06:49:55 pm »
Aaron asked me to post this over here. I bought this in an on-line auction. I will be picking it up on Sunday. I have no idea whether it's pooched or not but if so, it will make a nice shelf queen. Here are the pics from the auction site.

That really is a cherry Micro-CVA.  Look at that bar stencil.  Same 2.0ci/33cc engine as what's in a Poulan 2000.

Unless they straight gassed it, that saw's probably mint inside.  Looks like it spent the last 30 + years in its case.  My guess is that fuel lines and a carb kit (and possibly crank seals) will be all it needs.  Maybe a fuel cap if the check valve has melted.  The updated cap is available from Husky for about $5.  They used it on the 23 chainsaw as well as some trimmers and blowers (all made by Poulan). 

Crank seals take 30 minutes or less to change both sides.  Really easy.  530019059 is the crank seal #.  Also available cheap from Poulan/Husky parts outlets.  Takes about 27 feet (or so it seems) of 3/22" ID fuel line.  Hopefully the oiler check valve will be pristine.  That's just about the only part on a Micro thats NLA...

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.

I wouldn't be surprised if the recoil side decal fell off and is in the bottom of that case.8)

I have a Canadian friend who sent me a pic of one just like that last year.  He said he's seen a few of them over the years.  IIRC, the recoil side decal has both English and French on it...

Wow Tim that is a really neat looking saw.    I think it is really neat that you are able to find these and post them here on the forum, other wise we may never see them here in the States.     You have some very unique Poulans up north of the border.   

   If it is based on the Poulan 2000 then parts are cheap and should be plenty around.   I actually took my 2000 apart and got rid of the base gasket, opened the ports a little, and muffler modded it.    Neat little saw.

Al that is really interesting.  The only small Poulan tophandle that I've seen any mention of .325 pitch chain on was a Canadian version of a Poulan S25-CVA (different series than the Micros for those that don't already know) listed as a "2400" on Acres site.  A 2400 (Woodmaster) here in the US is a rear handle version of a 2300 Micro.  A 2100 Woodmaster is a rear handle version of a 2000 Micro.

http://www.acresinternet.com/cscc.nsf/ed1d619968136da688256af40002b8f7/a5e4d24e3cecd88088256d5000160c13?OpenDocument

You can see in the pic that it has a "Super XXV-CVA Mini-Pro" decal on the clutch cover (which has a chainbrake).  The bar is a Windsor Mini-Pro replaceable sprocket nose.  I have one of those bars, but with a 3/8-LP tip.  Takes 57DL of LP.  If I ever find a .325 rim for the 9-spline drum on one of my S25-CVA's (so far I've only found LP and 1/4 rims for it), I'll put a .325 tip on that bar and see how the saw likes that pitch.



Tim if you ever find that above saw (the "Super XXV-CVA Mini-Pro) I'll be VERY interested in it.  I have put my Mini-Pro bar on the 2.3PS/VL that you sent me.  That saw has the 9-spline 3/8LP-6 rim drive setup on it.  I have a chainbrake clutch cover lined up for it that I'll repaint red so it will be a red version of that phantom saw (minus the decal and the .325 hardware).

I'll keep an eye out for one. Most of what I see up here are 38cc Craftsman's and Canadian Tire branded ones like a 2300CVA but all with chain brakes.
I do see the odd 25 come up but not many near me.
