    P51 Blower Housing... I'm looking for a P51 blower (AKA starter) housing. I believe the pn is 474639 (or 474586 for the complete assembly). Are there other Pioneer model covers which will fit? Other part numbers which cross to a P51 cover?? (I see others on ebay which look like mine in the...

    More on the "Polan 6500": - Data Plate: "PRO 455" "538 515723" - (also a parts saw data plate "PP 39CB" "538 515723"). I believe this may be a Partner/Pioneer P39?

    Appreciate the good info, Western! Heard back from the CL seller - v nice fellow - bought the Poulan 455? ($250) and a Poulan 4000 ($200) both new after Hurricane Hugo (Sept 1989) came through and knocked down 75 trees on their 60 acres. His wife just bought him a pair of new Stihls for...

    Thanks Western As you can see in the CL ad, this thing is a Polan (not a Poulan) ; ) Polans are made in Canada by Pioneer Anyhow, you and Beavers are way ahead of novices like me. - The cylinder Beavers shows looks like it has a boost port? - Can you gurus tell whether saw is a good one by...

    Thanks I did some more noodling, and believe it may actually be a Poulan 455? Looks a bit like Poulan/Partner P45? Compared to pics of the Pioneer P41/P42, the lower handle is broader (acts as a hand guard?) where it approaches the cylinder shroud, and the blower housing has molded intake...

    Is a "Poulan 6500" related to the Pioneer P61, Partner? P62, Poulan 655? I've been casually looking for a P61, and came across a local ad for a "Poulan 6500". Looks rough in pics, and maybe only slightly related to Pioneer. Blower housing, handle, brake, etc way different I googled and found the...

    "After looking through David Lee's book (mostly chronicles Mike Acres saws) ..." This reminded me that I ordered (and paid for) the David Lee book about 7 weeks ago, via Amazon. Just went and checked - order status still: "We will email you when we have an estimated delivery date" Anyone know...

    Beautiful Eldorado, Rocket! My old Ambo is in a dusty corner. I will take some "before" pics and post 'em. I have assembled an old Wixom touring kit (fairing, bags, trunk) for it and look forward to some vintage touring

    I noted the carb numbers: "Walbro SDC 10-78 53B 21 - 85" (Yes - actually 10-78; not 12-78) Not sure what the differences are between a P51 and P52? (My saw had a P51 decal on the blower housing; sticker on the clutch cover was damaged.) Acres site seems to show pretty much same specs for P52...

    Thanks, All! Wonderful fraternity, this. Yes; the filter cover is metal (magnesium casting?). The filter cover sticker does say Peterborough, Ont. The mod and sn sticker was by the oil/gas caps. I removed sticker before refinishing, but its so flimsy, probably won't try to reinstall...

    Gosh - I really don't know the history of this saw. As you probably noticed, my air filter cover has a divot missing out of the lower right (which I smoothed out - same thing with hand guard). And, I'm not sure that the "81,82,83" casting marks are actually year dates - could be something else...

    Thanks, Beavers! Funny - my P51 has casting dates of 81" (blower cover); "82" (engine case) and "83" (chain cover). Each date has some sort of hyroglyphics around it (month and week?). The (Walbro SDC) carb is marked "12 78", but I don't believe this is a date. Funny that the Pioneer serial...
