Poulan Top Handle 1800 woodshark
« on: October 31, 2014, 02:16:26 pm »
Hi everybody;  I'm confused about the bore diameter on my 1800.  The ring I ordered (530024929) is way too small.  Are the bores of the 2000 and the 1800 the same.  My bore is about 1.257

If you look in the IPL's, you will see references to "type 1", " type 2", "type 3", etc saws.  Some 1800's are actually the same as 2000's (regarding the P/C's).

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.

Ok I'll check it out.  Acres gives the bore size on an 1800 but not a 2000.

Didnt know that. I always assumed the 1800 was 30cc. Guess I need to pay attention now too.

Another thing I noticed was that that the wt309 carb on that doesn't have a round bore on the choke side.  It is partially closed off compared to most walbros.  Is it possible that they used the same piston and cylinder on both engines and intentionally restricted the power on the 1800 with the carb?

Mystery solved somebody switched the covers. It's not an 1800. It's a 2300 av.  Bore 1.525  Stroke 1.250.  Appreciate the input and your patience
I'm still just learning.
