Which model
« on: October 28, 2013, 05:51:26 pm »
I can't ID this Craftsman. The front handle bar has an odd two bolt attach.

Any ideas?

Thanks Kevin. That one looks like it.

I looked at my 2300CVA and it is different. Mine does have a chain brake though so it was likely made for the Canadian market.
Probably why I'm usually confused.

Ones shown above are early 2300CVA in my WAG and this is the later version 2300CVA in my WAG.  I have worked on the later ones like this.

Looks like a pretty neat little saw there Tim.    I am glad Kevin figured it out, those small Poulans are not my strong suit.

Not my strong suit either. Heck I only know 2000 1800 and 2300cva later model  a little. But I can search pretty good given I had a pic.

Another nice score Tim.  I like those Micros a lot.  Yours does look to be an early 2300CVA.  Notice the 'foot' at the bottom/front of the saw.  Interesting.  I worked on more than a few grey/back Craftsman versions of Kevin's late style 2300CVA in the 1990's.

Really digging the special CA spec Poulans and Homelites you keep coming up with (Do I spy french on the clutch cover?).  Now really impress me and find one of those Super XXV-CVA Mini-Pro saws with the CB, Windsor Mini-Pro bar, and .325 chain as pictured on Acres.  I'll be setting up the saw you sent me like that, except for the .325 chain.  I have a mini-pro bar already.  If I can ever find a .325 nine spline rim (for my nine spline drum), I'll put a .325 pitch tip on the mini-pro bar and see how the saw handles that chain.  I have 3/8-LP and 1/4 pitch rims...

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.

A nine pin rim with a .325 chain.    Did I read that right?     Those engines have a enough torque to handle that?

Not my saw Aaron. I was looking and trying to find out which model it was. That is French on the saw because we are bilingual. Not that 90 of Canadians could speak enough Canadian French to get by in Quebec.
I like to have some Canadian models if I can find them that are somewhat unique. All Canadian saws have bilingual labels and have had for many years.
I also have limited space to store my saws and have to start being more particular about what I buy. I don't even know how many I have now but it is still a small collection.

I will definitely keep an eye out for Super Mini Pro XXV W/ chain brake with you in mind.
