This is what happens when shipper puts big saw in empty box with no padding of any kind. The case takes the bumps when they hit concrete etc bam crunch.
 Luckly I have been down this road on my poulan 415 that I bought in a box of parts when a tree won the battle.
So I will redneck fix it if you guys dont have a better idea on fixing the break.





Please if you are new to this. Take the time to pack the saws up right and protect them. Thanks.

That is always a worry of mine when buying something from someone I don't know. I try to double box and pad all I can in the box I use.

That part of the case looks a bit weak to be repaired, but I really have no idea..... ???

It is a weak area from the factory IMO.

This 415 in below link was broke in the same area and previous owner tried to have it welded and did NOT hold.
So I redneck fixed it and these cuts are being made after I removed the crappy welding job and fixed it my way. Still holding till this day.

If this shows up, here is my 475 in a piece of oak.

You can hear it still 4 stroking a bit when it comes out of the cut and its set at 14,500.

I went here   http://shell.windows.com/fileassoc/0409/xml/redir.asp?Ext=mp4

Then downloaded  http://www.finalmediaplayer.com/mp4-player.html

Will see if that will open the mp4 file.

That did the trick. I just didnt have a mp4 video player available on my puter.

Project 475 under way. Crankcase redneck fixed like I did the 415 long ago and still holding  8)  .

Was taking parts out of my 2077 2083 tank and broke the on/off switch wire connection.   :(  So might just throw the 425 tank on since the 425 needs new crank bearings and seals for it's rebuild.
