    that is what i was afaird of. I have never pulled one off and do not want to ruin my new 650.00 saw, any special tools needed to remove or reinstall the cylinder like a ring compressor

    So............ we have a 365 that can be made a 372 by removing an added restrictor, and no one has done it.

    The 555 has been out for months and no one has ported one.

    This place has really gone to hell ! :biggrin:

    You have built in ring compressors, they grow out of the ends of your fingers! :hmm3grin2orange:

    4mm and 5mm allen wrenches, a slotted 3/16 screwdriver, and you should be able to do it all with just those tools..... I think. I might have missed something. Well, you'll need a security bit to remove the transfer covers.

    OK, OK.

    Spike60 here, transmitting from the Harry Barker shop in the beautiful Berkshire mts. of Mass.

    Bit of a Christmas/New Year's party going on here. Barney34 is also here, with a half dozen or so locals. Wish more of you guys were here! A cold 23 degrees up right now.

    In spite of the loss of falculties due to the afternoon's beer consumption, I will weigh in on this topic.

    Yup, it's nothing more than the divider/restrictor on the inside of the port cover plates. Grind it off, and you have a 372. Cylinder casting, piston, timing, carb, compression are all the same. Easiest port job in the world. Got 2 or 3 dozen 365XT's in stock BTW. :biggrin:

    Amazed that no one has stumbled on this yet. Some may at first think Husky is screwing people here. Just that little plate, and it's $150+??? Not really, if you think about it. Old way was to have two models on the same chassis, with two different P&C's to seperate them. New way is to use a common casting and alter the power by "porting". Look at it this way: In the past, if you wanted to convert a 365 into a 372, you had to buy another cylinder assembly. Now all you have to do is grind off the divider, and you're ready to go.

    Gettin' me another beer. Happy New Year Guys!!!!!!

    Have one for me!!!! (And try the jerky if he'll let ya :hmm3grin2orange:)

    And I'm too lazy to go look, but do you have to pop the cylinder off to get to the screws for the plates or can you get at them with the cylinder still on the saw?

    Gotta take it off to get to the bottom screws. Pretty easy job.

    jerky is good. But................the ribs, venison tips, bacon rapped shrimp.............outstanding.
