    Default Just another junk chainsaw

    I love that nobody knows about certain good saws out there. Had to put in another piston today after a tear down to see what was up with the stuck ring.
    These saws were way ahead of their time IMO. 1984 Partner 5000 plus and I had a 1979 5000 open port that was strong or stronger. This makes about 15 or more of these I have had now. Keeping a few back, well maybe.

    I really like the guys that pass on the Poulan Pro 325 which is a Partner 5500.

    Just a few.

    I hear you, same around here...I have a backlog of 15 or so saws to fix and sell over the fall and winter, including a couple of the poulan pros...if things ever slow down.

    Fixemall what model poulans got a few keepers of those myself.

    I'm tossing up the idea of buying another jonsered 490 that runs but has a stuck ring and some scoring at the moment. Sight unseen just emails so far.

    Need it like a hole in the head.

    Got a counter vibe 3400 and a running 3700, bunch of old macs, a comet, a mono, some old homies and a couple of Sears branded saws. For work around my place I have a stihl wood boss, cutoff saw and an Echo CS8000

    I was ask to post some pics of what a 028 super and 026 pro look like side by side.

    The 028 super is a oem piston rebuild and all stock, the 026 pro is woods ported with domed pop piston.

    So is that actually routing some of the exhaust gases through the tube, which is inside the handle?? NEAT idea but wouldn't the heat melt the tubing?? Or is it not as hot as I'm thinking it would be???
    Nothing could be finer than riding my JD790 in South Carolina!!

    Nothing runs like a Deere, or smells like a John....

    It is exhaust gases through the tubing and is adjustable to how much you want for heat. The oem tubing is some kind of silicon tubing I would guess.

    Works great on 490 5000 top handle and rear handle. My 346xpg new type heated handle is just top handle I think and carb.
