Redmax 5200 Tanaka 5601
« on: February 08, 2017, 03:15:22 pm »
 I just got a Tanaka 5601[ a Redmax G5200 ]. Everywhere on the saw is written Zenoah Japan. The cylinder has Zenoah cast in it. Quad closed port. I want to port the cylinder and i would like some help. Should i open the jug and case like Husqvarna 346? Or keep it simple and just open the bottom side of the transfer, intake and exhaust . Is EHP posting here lately? Thanks.

 Thank you. I think the G 5000 has the strait handle and G5200 has the profiled handle on the right side. Allso the G5000 has'nt got decompression valve.

Interesting...

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.
