Poulan Craftsman PP295 4620

So I don't know how these fit in. I found three that had serial number tags years 1995-97. I tried with the pics but they are too large and its a pain to down size them on my phone.

One is 358.351190
The other two are
358.351191

What's the difference between them

I'd have to look at the saws or the IPL's for those model #'s to tell you.  Could just be a different bar length or chain pitch.  Sears used different model #'s for even the most minor variations of equipment.

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.

The bare bore versions may have been produced after that IPL was printed.  For example, the 2900 Type 1 and 2 have a different P/C than Type 3 and 4.  I have seen Sears IPL's that show P/C part #'s that correspond to both versions.  IIRC, the Type 3 and 4 are the bare bore/plated piston versions...

Has anyone tried to fit the easy start recoil from a 4620 onto a pp295.  I have one of each and the difference is amasing.

Can you change flywheels too and then be able to use easy start, if different. Just wondering. 

Just thinking maybe they engage different?  Pics of recoil inside and flywheels?

I have not tried that.  I have one spring assist 4620 saw in the shop now and will compare those parts to the PP295 pieces that I have (and shoot a few pics).  The second spring is in the pulley assembly.  Can't recall the pawl/engagement differences offhand.

OK so I tried swapping the recoils last night and it works.  There is a recoil spool kit that you can buy that has all the require upgrade parts should you want to make starting easier on your fingers.

I was looking through some of my older engine parts as well as pictures of the later engines, and it appears that when they made the change to the larger rubber coated combo bearing/seal that they also reduced the case volume a bit.  The later lower pans are contoured to fit more closely to the crank counterweights than the early ones (which are simple cylindrical shapes with lots of clearance).  Kinda makes me want to play with one (mine is the early style) - does anyone know when this change occurred?

I don't know of a SN or date range where they made the change.  Rather, the IPL's show the change by Type.  Likely different for each of the models in the series, but with the PP295 the change looks to have happened with Type 3.  Type 3 and 4 have the new style bearing/seal setup.
