    HyWay Hot Rod Lives! ( The "Stuck" top ends freed up and cleaned up runs quite well...) So A couple of days and about 4 or 5 tanks of use documented in the next video..

    MORE HyWay Hot Rod ( Husqvarna 372 with Hyway Top End )
    Again this is the one I hammered apart after it has seized up solid....THIS was a hard day for any saw as its in the mid teens and I just kept dropping it in the snow. Didn't seem to bother it...started right up, ran all afternoon. I decided after a few tanks and tasks to video this task to add to its video record of its life..:) This was pure fun for me...

    I guess the bottom line is after at least 5 gallons of gas through it, its running even better than before. Turned out to be a useful and fun saw. NOT quit ready to call it a reliable build yet...or hand it over to those in my test program...but I am ready to call it a steady saw in my work saw rotation. Just have to decide what saw gets knocked out of the pocket. Think UOMS ( 560 ) is going to be semi retired until I feel lousy again like last year....this season those 372's are about right for me.
