POULAN 3400
« on: February 07, 2014, 12:55:34 pm »
Does anyone have a 3400 piston they are willing to part with? Oops ended sentence with a preposition. I have a 3800 cylinder in good shape or am willing to pay cash.

Bob I may have a good 3400 P/C I can send you.  Won't be able to pull and inspect it until the weekend.

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.

Thanks Aaron. Only need a piston but I can always use a good cylinder. I don't recall discussing avXXV chainbrake cover. I did put one on one of my S25da's though. Let me know what you want for the P&C.

I have a 3400 cylinder someone could have for shipping or would include in a box on another trade someday.  Just has a spot where the ring hung = hit bevel on exhaust side. Just needs that cleaned back up.

I'll pull it and take a closer look tomorrow.  Looks good through the ports.........but you never know until...

Man I wish I could remember who I was talking with about that XXV series CB clutch cover.  Was on this site.  Dunno why the PM's are gone.  Maybe we talked in emails instead.  Hmmmmm......

Will the 2300CVA clutch covers fit on the XXV's?

Are you referring to the Micro XXV's or the non-Micro XXV series?  No for the non-Micro XXV series saws (like the red S25-CVA you sent me).  Maybe for the Micros.

I don't know those saws at all. I was asking about CB cover as there are quite a few 2300CVA's up here that have brakes. I thought maybe one of those might fit the saw you were looking for a CB cover for.

Thanks guys for posting up those carb adapter mod pics

Oh I understand now Tim.  They won't fit the XXV saws, but will fit the various Micro saws, including the Craftsman red 2.3/16 badged 2300AV that I just got.  I'd be interested in one for that saw.
