    Mine's at 150 psi and it doesn't dangle on the cord either.

    Ok that's good news then. It was hanging with my 700 if not a little stronger in the same wood so I'm happy

    It's running strong if it can hang with the 700.

    Aww good then it shows a very different approach to the way the two make there power the 700 feels as tho it's got alot more compression it will hang on its cord for a bit so quite clever really the 4000 doesn't need a decomp. I guess it's just different porting. Have found how it likes to be started now choke no throttle lock 4 or 5 pulls it pops then add the lock no choke away it goes. I've noticed something funny with it when its quiet in the shed it whimpers and sighs lol took me ages to hunt down this odd noise and found it was coming from the poulan if you move it and shake the gas a bit it kinda pressurises a tiny bit and then leaks the air out over an hour or more

    The fuel tank duckbills whine for awhile when you shut them down. They kind of keep you company.

    I would have liked to see the top cover off, the starter off, the muffler off, and feel it running in my hands before I paid that much money for it. It did look good and a new chain and bar is worth something. PS I bid the first 78.00 on it

    I heard that one day in the tractor/ work barn, took me forever to find that noise. Loosen the cap and noise went away, now I pay it no attention.

    The 5200 was at 378 or so with 14 minutes to go and the real bidding started, was fun to watch it jump so fast

    Do Ebay auctions auto extend? Our own version of Ebay in nz trade me has an annoying feature where any bid in the last minute adds a minute so you cant sneak a bid with 5 seconds left. When I got my pm800 for rather cheap at 140 there were people offering 300plus in the comments so that last minute was a agonizing wait but no bids came they were all talk in the end. A pm850 went for 320 a month or two later with a 16inch bar haha

    No extra time on ebay, you can have a max bid and it will take you to the max and if your max is higher than anything else you win. If you want it bad better have a max bid of 3 times what it's worth cus some one will try and get a jump on you

    The seller has the 5200 crank case with top end for sale as well, it has a little red barn piston kit on it
