    started life as a 359 but got straight gassed and now has a new OEM 357 top end and has had the sluggish Walbro carb upgraded to the better Zama model as well, does everything the way it should
    $300 and exact shipping which should be very reasonable as we are have a commercial shipping account

    This combo makes a great running saw with a wide power band.
    I’m surprised this is still here

    I’d take a 359 with 357 top end any day over a stock 357.

    The stuffed case on the 357 limits the porting potential, I much prefer the larger case volume.

    Really good setup here for somebody to port up. Good deal too

    What did you try with porting on the stuffers vs non stuffer? I have two of these saws but the stuffers came up missing ;);)

    Haha- I’ve ported several 359’s using the stock cylinder loved em. Gave my last one away to a buddy and regretted it-

    Scored the above saw on eBay, but I payed more than 300....... this saw is a great buy!

    I ported it up using an OEM 357 top end. More intake duration is required to utilize the larger case capacity.all said and done, Makes for one heck of a saw :)

    The 359 doesn’t have stuffers- so I assume you mean you removed from the 357.

    I’m just saying a 359 is very easy to utilize.....no need to split case. Slap the freshly ground 357 cylinder on and go play.

    Listed is a perfect setup for the grinder :) and at a great price- had I not found mine I’d be waiting on a confirmation number.

    BUMP on a beautiful Friday, I can cover shipping East of the Mississippi and can ship to the saw porter of your choice as well.
    Thanks

    These were expensive when new. My new 353 wasn’t cheap.

    New here, interested in your 359/357 for sale. I am by no means an arborist. I heat in winter with my dead off property so maybe 12 face cord a year. however I have recently began managing a hunting property for the land owner and we have been clearing to build roads and food plots and such. lots of dead Ash and Oaks many larger than 36" diameter. I have a 359 which runs great! however my father got it stuck and tried pulling it out etc. well it now has a crack in the oil reservoir between the 2 bar bolts under the tensioner. bar oil would just pour out. yesterday i cleaned the crack, and jb welded it. worked pretty well fixed about 90% of leak. so long story short, im looking for another 359. i dont know how to contact directly so hopefully this gets to you. Thanks

    Kris

    No problem. If you decide to do something with the old 359 let me know. I have a PTO side case half for one of those.
