SURPRISE  SURPRISE (said in a Gomer Pile accent)

So I was cleaning up some of the parts laying around and I keep pushing that piston around.  For what ever reason it kept getting in my way.  Finally decided to measure it just for grins.  Well, it's 48mm NOT 46mm.  I dig out the cover and it's badged 034 AV  electronic quickstop.  Go to Acres and look up 034.  There's a 034SEQ and a 034EQ.  The fact that this piston and jug measure out to be 48mm makes this a 034 super.  Why was it not badged that way??  Any way, good thing I checked cause I was on the verge of ordering a piston. 

Onward and forward.

Hope all is well and have a great night.

Fred

The one picture I found of a 034 Super showed SUPER spelled out on the cover.  This one is just plain jain 034 AV.  Live and learn.  Measure before you leap.  :)

You buy used or new?

Like that one I got from Al was a 46mm AV and switched to 48mm and if someone in AZ works on it since my friend retired and moved there. He will find same thing as you.

What happened  on the 034 before I put the 036 cylinder on it was it was used by a tree service and badly abused .They ran that thing with all the flocking sucked out of the air filter,just the wire screen.Ran it without the bearing in the clutch and actually broke a clutch segment .It didn't have any transfer but did have a lot of wear caused by ingesting dust into the engine .I screwed up the cylinder by using too aggressive type of flap wheel and cut right through the plating.
I put that thing back together with parts robbed from other parts saws except the Meteor piston and Caber rings .The clutch was repaired with I think a segment from an 029 .
I think the reason a tree service would use them is they were  a cheaper option than say an 044 having first used 029/039 that would no way hold up to the abuse they would be subjected to .Had they been been taken care of they would have done okay as a ground saw .It proves once again to let things go eventually they turn into junk .BTW tree service saws are the most wrung out abused saws anybody would ever  find. In case you have an option to buy one .If you do be prepared to work on it and don't pay much money for it .
That's it in a nut shell .Good saws and would make a dandy fire wooder .Light enough and certainly have enough power .
