I don't have any pictures at the moment but maybe Kevin or someone can post some.

You know we need some good pics of this poulan 8500   8) ;D

Here some utube video of 8500

says just put back together 1 of 3 of his 8500

first cuts from new rebuild
2nd 8500 first run after rebuild
poulan 8500 #3 making cuts
Thanks for that Kevin, but I have to admit poor Homelite Jim's videos were pretty painful to watch.
If I get my brothers 8500 I'll post some pics and maybe a video or two. Along with that 8500 comes a Wolf tune pipe,some strong porting and a WB carb.
The saw has barely a scratch on it and I fondly remember how smooth and quick that thing cut even before he modded it .Plus it doesn't have that ugly full wrap handle either.
Like alot of guys I know who had said, you're not a Poulan man until you own a 8500.
Making a living with a saw since age 16.
