    hi, i just bought a 036 pro project today. i was wondering the differences between an 036 and 036 pro. are the Cylinders and pistons different?

    I believe the only differences are that the 036 Pro has a decompression valve port drilled and tapped for the decomp valve in the cylinder, of course with the valve installed. Also the Pro version has an adjustable oiler.

    All components on the two saws are interchangeable. As Bowtie said above, "Pro" saws that have the "Pro" label above the air filter, usually have the decomp button for easier cranking and an adjustable oiler with a screwdriver on the bottom of the saw. These are good 'work' saws; I've cut a lot of wood with them over the years.

    Yeah unlike the 026 I believe both the 036 and 036 pro have adjustable oilers on them.

    The 034 I just sold wasnt labeled Pro but had an adjustable oiler. I dont know if it was factory or not, but the access hole was in the saw to the oiler adjuster as well.

    I have two 036's and they both have adjustable oilers and no decomp valve.

    The main differences beteeen the 036 "pro" and 'not pro" are the decomp and compensating carb/larger airfilers/air-filter box.. All have adjustable oilers

    Lakeside are you sure the compensating carb was on the 036 pro?

    I was thinking it was started on the 360 pro series.

    It came out with the "pro" in 1996. The 360 came much later.

    no... The clutch side cover will fit but it's plastic, not Mag like the 036.

    What is a running 036 worth? Is there an early/late? The ad says needs a tune up.
    THANKS

    Is the 036 a pro or not? If its a non pro its an earlier 036. Its hard to give a good estimate without getting a better idea of the physical and mechanical condition. How much is he asking for it and do you have a picture of it?
