034 Rebuild
« on: January 24, 2020, 08:17:46 pm »
While waiting for parts on the 044 I dug out an old 034.  Jug and piston scored enough that I'll replace same.  Having a hard time finding a 46mm jug and piston, only 48mm.  Also says cover mod is required with replacement jug.  What mod is required??  If I go with the 48mm jug will the stock carb (tillotson, hk43b) be o.k.  What else might be waiting in the wings to bite me on this rebuild?

Hope all is well.

An 036 cylinder will work but the cover is slightly different than a standard 034 cover .The 034 super is basically the same as an 036.
I did do one like that once and Kevin ended up with it .It ran good but I didn't have it long enough to work out the fine details it took to straighten it out .I do have an 034 Super but it's just one on the "to do " list which is getting longer than shorter .

@Al Smith  she ended up a little beast for years.  036 on the 034av you did and traded me. I kept it going for 2 local firewood cutters. After first one traded in to go newer due to air leak. I put new crank seals and carb kit etc and topend still looked good. 

2nd firewood guy ran it till he retired last year and took it with him to AZ with a 026 I rebuilt for him too. 

Thread where I used it to compare to some other 60cc-62cc saws when it was in one time.  Videos in dry ash. http://chainsawrepair.createaforum.com/poulan/test-in-11'-dry-ash-3450-380-3750-036/

Anyone have an IPL and SM for the 034??

It  looks like a 48mm jug and piston will work just fine.  Would have liked to keep it stock but can't find after market 46mm.  For that matter, OEM.

Hope all is well,

Fred

Let me check chainsaw repair group facebook for ya. Have 39,000 members. Someone might have a used 034 oem set.   https://www.facebook.com/groups/415662708518445/

How scored is your cylinder? Most will clean up and just need a piston kit.

C4F as far as "...how scored ..."  I haven't pulled the jug yet but I'll post thru the exhaust pics tomorrow.  2nd opinion (and more experienced) much appreciated.

Later,

Fred

Just tried to take pictures of piston and jug while on the saw.  Not too clear.  Anyway, took a closer look at the top of the piston and there is a lot of carbon build up.  Gonna pull that jug and take a closer look.  It'll have to wait tho since I have that 044 on the bench right now.  Not much room on my bench and I'm not good at multitasking.  :) 

Later and have a great day

I found another 034 but this one is a super so it already has the larger bore and all the plastic will fit .I've been so busy the last few years I haven't had the time to do anything to it or another half a dozen saws on the list .Although I didn't use the last one very long I thought it was pretty peppy and it was a stocker,no mods .I'll give this next one the treatment and see what that does .
Although my favorite Stihl saw is the 038 Mag I really like this series of saws the 034/36 series which I think includes the 044 and 046 .They take to mods very easily .It really doesn't take much to make them really scoot .On that though it's just a hobby for me .My only competition is myself .
