    2012 346. This one had a plugged muffler screen and air filter. The exhaust port was starting to become blocked with carbon. I cleaned it all out, slightly opened the muffler, and put a new caber ring in it. No porting but I cleaned up a couple small casting blemishes in the lower transfers. Base gasket delete and timing advance. It runs strong. Hard to stop it with a 16" bar and chain on it's first tank. New zama carb kit, OEM yellow air filter, ring, .325 rim(can swap to 3/8 at buyer's request), and OEM top cover(original was cracked). It pops in two pulls cold with the primer bulb. Decomp can be plugged at buyer's request. The oil issue has been fixed. It leaks no bar oil. Looking for $385 for the powerhead. I have a few bar options if a buyer would like.

    Is leaking bar oil pretty common with 346's? Mine does the same.

    Nice saw at a good price! I've had a few dealings with cuinreariew and you couldn't ask for a better person to deal with.

    Thank you John. I do have a couple 2152s to build, and some 346 jugs. One of them is a primer bulb saw. I'd been thinking about how I want to do them, I think you just made up my mind on the one. If you stay on top of your fuel and tune these decomp primer bulb saws are super user friendly and perform awesome.

    This one may be worth holding out for guys. Dustin always has some nice looking redheads.

    Don't we all... How are you liking the 550? I saw Kevin's vid, have you taken any? I've looked a couple over in some shops, they look really well designed. IMO too close in physical size to the 562s they sit on the shelf next to, but I want to reserve full judgement until I get to try one out in the woods.

    My dad put about 8 tanks on it, loved it, wanted to keep it, said it was all the saw he would ever need and he cuts more then most. I do like the upgrades but it doesn't feel as nimble as the 2253 I had. Best feel is like a 254. I do consider it a saw that would last most a very long time, very easy to operate and best AV on the market. I wouldn't sell a good mark I to buy one but I wouldn't buy a new mark I over a mark II either.

    I'm curious to see how my fresh 346 compares to the newish 5100 I just picked up.
    First time I have had both at the same time
