Got a question. My 4000 has the foam style handle grip. My parts saw 3400 has the new rubber style grip like I like.   Is it because of when they were made early v/s newer?  I'm thinking of pulling the foam handle off to keep from tearing it all up like I have seen on others.

To show what I am talking about.

I sure don't have a definitive answer for ya. But, I'm guessing by the style of decal on your parts 3400, that it was one of the very last of the 3400's. Like just before they did away with that model, and started with the gold & black Poulan Pro versions of these saws. Like the 375, 395 etc. From what I have seen, they generally have the harder, smooth rubber grips, along with black painted metal. I know my PP Super 380 has the same type of handle.
I personally like the older, thicker, soft foam grips. But they are more susceptible to damage. Would be interesting to know also, when Poulan switched the hand guards from being on the handle, to being on the top cover. I much prefer the later. Gives you a little more hand room for a slightly different grip at times.


Gregg,

Thanks...

Here is a pic of my PP375. Can see it has the hard, smooth covering like your 3400 has. Also the metal is painted black, instead of bare aluminum. Which leads me to think your 3400, along with decal style, might make your 3400 a very late model.

I sure don't know, but that 4000 style air cleaner could have possibly been a factory thing. When they changed to the Poulan Pro colors and ended that line of saws, they all used the " high top" air filter. So maybe they were down to only that style of filter, and put them on the last of the 3400's instead of producing more of the older style filter covers. Who knows. ;D

Sweet!

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.

I measured the ones I have and came up with .023" and .55mm.  So I would say they are the same just depends on how much pressure you put on the dial indicator.  I used two different indicators for inches and millimeters.
