    Nice old Poulan pro 655. This one has the sdc carb and the boost port. I opened it up to see if it had the extra port and it did. Everything works as it should including the aux oiler. I just had my saw shop look it over and tune it so it’s ready to go cut. If you’ve never run one of these your missing out they flat out rip. Its reading 140lbs on my compression gauge but it feels like more then that to me. It does have a scuff on the piston but nothing that keeps it from running strong. I’d take 500 plus shipping for this one pho. Located in central Indiana.

    There is a BP piston and non BP piston. I don't remember for sure, but that looks like the non BP piston. If I recall the BP piston is open below the pin boss area. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

    Your not wrong about the notch on the BP piston. Look at the last photo again.

    It’s got the open window down to the skirt on the bp side and a closed window on the exhaust side. I believe it’s the correct piston for the bp cylinder.

    So on the piston pin one side is solid and the other hollow. Is it correct to assume the open side is the bp side and the solid is exhaust?

    There’s a picture above showing the bore of the cylinder. It makes good compression and runs the way it should.
