The guy trading me these is headed my way today. 3.5hr drive one way.  :o 
He must really like the vintage echos I am trading him. 3 of mine for 3 of his for a  6 saw total trade. 
We were going to meet half way at a basspro shop.
Then he ask me about the d176 echo 36" echo bar and new chain I had.
Well he said how about I just drive to you to save on both of us driving.  :o 8)
Told him you drive to me I will give you the 36" bar and chain for free. Least I could do I figured.

When all said and done. Being these 2 above are the series before the ones I like. I will be trading or selling these. If anyone is interested.

Coming PHO

Grey Sears will be a 3400 or 3800. That is if it has the original piston and cylinder. Sears switched from the 3700 to the 3800 ( for their 3.7 models) when the red saws were still being made. There were no gray 3700's.

On the grey one. One dang number marred.  Craftsman 358.?56081  going to do some quick searching.

CRAFTSMAN SEARS CHAIN SAW 3.4 Parts | Model 358.354810

Cant find numbers on the craftsman 3.7 3800 grey


Figured out he said the whole top cover was missing when he got it. Aka cylinder cover and air filter cover.  That explains the hand guard holes missing on the cover on the PP375.  He painted black I think he said green covers to use.

Gassed both saws. Started and ran PHO for blipping and idle. Both seemed fine. No real testing with bar chain and getting up to temps though.

I do remember the last owner saying he had pulled the carb on the 3.0 3.4 to replace a torn carb gasket. Not sure which one, maybe carb to intake or is there one to intake to cylinder too?

Both auto oilers was putting out oil. Checked manual oilers and they worked great.

Both saws are SOLD already too.

Be on the look out for a 375 4000 395 style hand guard on cylinder cover and high top air filter cover. New owner would like to make it right for his collection.

Poulan 3400 IPL http://www.klippo.com/ddoc/POUI/POUI1980_USen/POUI1980_USen_64155_.pdf

Just wanting to figure out what carb gasket deal looks like on the saw.

Shows 2 gaskets. 1 between cylinder and intake blok and 1 between carb and intake block. No clue which one last owner said he replaced.  Can ask if it is needed.
