    Craftsman / Poulan Carb Part number confusion

    I have wasted a good bit of time trying to rebuild carbs for two 18" Craftsman Chainsaws. I have decided to start from scratch and buy new carb kits for both, but I have now learned the hard way that there seem to be a million different configs and part numbers out there. #1 is Craftsman Saw...

    Craftsman (Roper) 3.7A model 917351472 Mods for milling?

    I inherited my Dad's Craftsman 3.7a (yellow and white) model number 917.351472, and I'm seeking thoughts on making it a dedicated milling saw. Like many others on this site, I am making a project of giving it another life (the saw I learned on and all that). Thankfully the repairs needed have...

    Dad's Old Craftsman 5.2/30"

    Hello all! I am new to the forum so I hope this ends up in the right spot. I picked this forum because it seemed to have the most helpful advice on older saws. So here is the situation: When I was a kid I vividly recall Dad using this loud ugly red saw that he loved. About 15 years ago...

    Chainsaw Clutch & Idle Mystery

    I have a used Craftsman 358351702 chainsaw. I opened up the clutch assembly and can see what looks like dark discoloration on the drum and clutch, plus some melted plastic on the chassis ("~12-1 o'clock" as viewed from the saw's right side) and on the chainsaw brake. I removed the excess...

    SOLD!!!! Never Fired Craftsman 5.2

    I'm reluctant to do this but after buying it I realize that I just can't have a shelf queen, it does have some shelf wear from being shuffled around in a barn where it lived in West Texas for over 30 years. I have more detailed pictures of the shelf wear and the small amount of surface...

    Craftsman 3.4/3.7/4.0 Poulan 3400/3700/4000

    WHATS EVERYONE GOT?:thisthreadisworthlesswithoutpictures: It seems there needs to be a dedicated post for these saws, so many talk about them. With that said, I have a 3.7/18. My buddy brought me his for a clean up. He has a 3.4/20. The sticker with model # on his is gone. Is there a production...

    Craftsman 2.3 PS/VL, model 358.350880: request assistance

    Hello everybody, I acquired this little number through my fiancee and have just now gotten around to it (she know's I'm a fan of chainsaws and tinkering). The first thing I did was take off all the big pieces to see how this thing works. The fuel line was shot (big surprise) so I just bought...
