    Got my 372 X-Torq in today, and had to tear it down to see what the heck was going on in there. Haven't run it yet, and Barney34 is coming over to have a look, so we'll put it together and run it later today.

    You really have to take the thing apart to see how they are grabbing the clean air with a single throat carb. Essentially, the throttle plate, choke plate, and a third permanent plate between them, keep the clean air on top, and the fuel/air mix on the bottom. So, in that way, they are sharing the single throat of the carb, which is slightly larger than on the original.

    Brad, and all of you porting guys will quickly notice that the intake port is smaller, as are the transfers, which are now one channel on each side instead of the traditional two per side.

    I took some pics, which as was the case with the 560XP, I'll have to shoot them over to MFunaro and maybe he can get them up later. Somebody comes over here and shows me how to post pics might go home with a free saw. :bang: (Not this one though LOL)

    First off, glad you got it. Now I can clear my name since I havent been able to get the pictures up :)

    And secondly, how long of a ride do you think that is :D


    What is your opinion on weight/handling? Did not have anything to compare it to besides the 576 when I seen one

    I'm a bit surprised with the single transfer design, it seems a bit old school. Hope to see vids and pics soon Spike.:)

    Brad:
    The crankcase,fuel tank,air filter assy,crankshaft, & clutch are the same, the rest of the saw is slightly different, with different part#'s. That should give everyone an idea the saws are not much different in weight.

    Yeah, rather elegant compared to other itterations so far.

    Maybe Husky CAN pull off a Lighter/ more powerfull replacement accross the board.

    I still hate Strato though...:D

    Stay safe!
