That rubber cap fits on the post or stud on the bottom of plastic piece the air filter mounts to, #19 in the diagram, that's where it is on my 2900.

That's where I wedged it when I added one to my 2775.   It made a big reduction to the carb vibration.

I loaned this pp295 out not long ago as a possible trade was in the works. His dad preferred the husky 350 45mm so I went ahead and rebuilt it for them.

I went to test my saw out to make sure it was as it left.  I noticed again that there is a difference in the rear handle angle and  throttle trigger. I just dont care for the rear handle and trigger angles and feel at angle in my right hand. 

Anyone else notice this?

Going to use as loaner saw or trade for something or sell cheap I guess.


Hmmmmmm.....

I don't particularly like how these handle either.  I prefer to use the 46cc (and 49cc if I can land a good one cheap) engines/intakes in the chassis of the Husky versions.  Might have to work out a deal with you for that one as another parts donor...

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.

Do they feel weird to you on the rear handle and trigger angles? Reminds me of the 262xp on this a bit that I didnt care for too.

Rear handle/trigger angle.  Heavy/crunchy throttle trigger pull.  Flimsy spring AV setup. The Husky 36-141 layout fits me better.

A couple of shots showing the rear handle compared to my 142, and to the G621 clone.  It's not radically different - if anything the trigger may engage earlier (more vertical vs pulling up further into the handle). 

The 142 certainly does feel different do to the less flexible rubber A/V mounts.  The trigger on mine has less effort than the 2775, but the 2775 doesn't feel crunchy.

Mine just feels weird in my hand and the trigger feels weird engaging too. Just not comfortable in the hand and natural like all the other saws I have ran.

The 295's feel ok for me.   I have not noticed anything unusual about them.   I still have 3 of them.
PP 505, 475, 445.

For me it's the trigger pull/angle and the spring AV.  Not terrible, but not what I prefer.  I mostly run 1/2-series Huskys, and the 36/41 feel like 'mini' 2-series saws in my hands.  Just what I'm used to.
