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.

Some of Marks info to save.

Anyhow after some more searching I found that the part # for the 415-445 coil superceded to part # 544018401 which is a common coil on a bunch of Huskys like a 55 coil.

Redneck = anything I can do on the cheap side without proper tools or equipment.

I should have showed pics I guess. I did this to 415 and 475.  Drill small holes on either side of break in both pieces, about 4 on each side. Lace #12 bare copper house wire and tighten each lace across.

Then on 415 due to someone trying to weld and blew it out I had to use JB to fill void then use steel putty and mold to both sides.

475 I was able to skip the JB part and go straight to the steel putty and mold on both sides.

 Something like this.  http://www.loctiteproducts.com/p/mech_spec_epxy/overview/Loctite-Metal-Filled-Epoxy-Putty.htm  or this   http://www.dual-star.com/index2/Service/quiksteel_epoxy_putty.htm

Thinking these are the mm of bores I was looking for last night.

505 = 54mm

475 = 52mm

445 =  50mm

415 425 =  48mm

Send it to me I will weld it for you.  I am still taking on practice pieces.  Just split the case and send the half that needs repair.  I have done 5 clutch covers, 1 crank case, and a bad crack on the bottom of my 335, and a hole in my 3750.  All have gone well so far so I see no reason why yours would not also.  The piece is very thin from looking at your pictures and will take a careful amount of current control to get it right without blowing it apart, but I do not believe it would be any worse than some of the clutch covers I have done.

I had thought about asking you about welding 475. But I had such good luck with the poulan 415 fix last year  in same area I went ahead already and did the 475 yesterday. It's ready to be put together now.

Thanks for the offer though.

Well ok I tried.  The only thing it would have cost you is your wisdom and knowlege that I could have called on in the future.  Maybe next time. 

  I just got a new computer couple days ago and I am still getting all the favorites set up along with other things.  Man is this thing fast compared to my old computer that I used for the last 12 years.   I can actually watch a video in real time now.
