What is the difference in these 3 filters (545057701, 530036141 and 12486)?

The newest poulan number 545****** filter suck to no end....like one use type **** that still lets dust through, SABOTAGE I tell ya!  The older 3614's were cleanable, filtered decent, and lasted a while.....more like every manufactures flocked type. 

 I think I saw a pic of the Rotary 12486 were it's flocked style like orig., but white instead of that yellow color.

Again, I think some used dryer sheets folded and duct taped would work better than those new poulans.

I dont have a clue but will use info from searching. As I wondered too.  Guessing white might be like a mesh filter type? More coarse openings?

545057701   $3   This is an OEM Poulan air filter that fits a limited number of Poulan chainsaws. The filter fits Poulan 2900 type 4, PP295 type 4, PP4620AV, and PP4620AVX.






530036141  $3 








12486  $6  shows both so who knows wth you are getting.  :-X

The two I have are 530036141 and seem to work fine and hold up too.   They are both old and I just keep cleaning them.   They let very few fines through

Picked up one of these and although the P&C are great it does have some issues.  The muffler was obviously loose and burned thru the oil tank.  This is because I think one one of the threads is partially stripped.  Anyway the heat shield is also missing as well as the shield that protects the oil tank.

I guess what I need is a part saw with a roached P&C.  I believe a 295, or 4620 and maybe a 2500 would work.

So no "you Suck" with this one.  I might be better off just selling off the P&C, carb etc.

Update - found a 4620 runner for $60 (with a new chain I can double my money) and the seller threw in a 2900 chassis including a muffler.
I just want to get confirmation that I can move all the good bits of the pp295 into the 2900 chassis.  One of the muffler bolt hole is reamed out so what's the best way to fix that?

Thanks for any input

Still waiting for some advice on reamed out muffler bolt holes.  Drill and re-thread or time sert?

Thanks,
