    I bought it today for $50, actually is a Poulan Pro 455. Not currently running, hope it's just a fuel/carb issue. It will need a new air filter, not finding any, suggestions? I did find a Max Flo for a P42 on ebay, anyone know if that will work? Thanks

    That filter is just someone cutting it out of filter material, it would work but need to make a gasket for it

    Maybe i should just try to make my own, there's a foam one there now that's deteriorating. Also, there's a button on the back near the spark plug, what does it do?

    If you want to double your money let me know lol. That's a great score. The filter will be hard to find. You could convert it to a vstack set up for when your actually cutting with it. A husky 288 elbow and vstack go right on with no mods needed besides retuning it. Oh and of course whatever filter you want to run.

    Any interest in a p40? Going to let one go, might need a carb kit from sitting, but I started it today.

    Yeah, I think I did alright, the deal even included a new 20" bar still in the wrapper, the bar alone may be worth $50

    Hey P61! Did you look at that picture of the lid and determine if my saw is a 650? Thanks!
