I got a real nice one that needs seals ill try and find my post!
Awesome explanation. Ill go check acresnet to look up specs again but it sounds most likely that i have a 3.4 then. I looked at poulan but craftsman had all the goofy numbers like u said above so i was lost. Thank u!3.7 craftsman's can be either 3700 or 3800, both the same bore diameter. Most 3.7's were red and 3.4's grey, though there were occasional exceptions.
The 3.4's stickers were sometimes plain, as in the op' pic, where the 3.7's usually have 3.7/18" denoted on both the recoil and clutch cover stickers.
The "xxx" part of the 358.356xxx model number can tell you most of whats what...
Yup. I have two red Craftsman. One is a 3800 and the other a 3700. Externally no real way to tell the difference.3.4 and 61cc versions which are a 3400 and 3800 have thick rings with bare bore and 3.7 which is a 3700 has thin rings and chrome bore. All of which are a poulan .
