This will be my Husky 288 Lite Build thread.
I will slowly post my progress.
Ok I am game. opcorn:
Is it done yet?
:msp_confused: real slow i guess
I received a Husky 288 Lite project from a fellow "Jar Head".
This is a pretty bare bones project to start with.
But that is a good thing!
I do not need this saw to work right away, as I have other Big Huskys to take care of all my cutting needs.
This is just for fun.
This will be a good project during the Summer as our Forest is always closed for cutting here during that time.
Posting from my phone so please ignore grammar errors and typos.
Here are some Pics...
I know the rule.. no pics or it did not happen

I'm in. Will be throwing a 288XP together out of two 'partials' soon...
Well you do have a project there. Looks like you will be hunting down parts for awhile.
I am buying some parts from a member here.
When I get them I will know more of what I need.
I will be posting in the Swapmeet thread alot, looking for parts.
Question for you..
Do you split the cases no matter what? Or if the bearings look good just replace the bearings?
If it were me and I had that 288 I would split the case and clean it real good and put new bearings and seals back in it. That saw looks well used to me.
Just Pay Paled for some Husky 288 parts from a fellow member!
Now, looking to get them in and trying to figure out all that I need.
Bearings are $6 per side for that saw, no way would I not put bearings in it......
Thanks for all the thoughts and opinions.
I need all the help I can get with this saw project!
Exactly the information I needed!
Still working on this project.
I do not need this saw, so no big hurry.
I will just keep looking for parts and eventually I will get her all done, and cutting.
I got some parts from a member here, now looking in Swap meet thread and always looking on E-Bay.
I figured this thread needed a little excitement....:hmm3grin2orange:
My Husky 288 Build is more exciting that some UGLY NON-SEXY woman..
