    This one doesn't get run alot. Brother does commercial electrical and plumbing, we they are plumbing a new restaurant he will use it to dig for the water and drain lines or for pipe repair some where else. On the farm we use it for digging and tree removal. Been think about putting a lift basket on the boom where the bucket goes. We just have to build the brackets to mount to the boom. Be easier for me to trim trees instead of a platform I have for the bobcat. That thing will make you squeeze your rear cheeks real tight when it bounces and bucks up and down, not fun.

    Hey all, thanks for the help and guidance with my Poulan 4400 the other week. Finally got the fuel line replaced after several hours of cursing! I did end up using the 5/16" OD fuel line and it was a serious battle to get it pulled all the way into the tank. Almost gave up and went down a size at several points.

    It runs like a total champ after cleaning the air filter, replacing the fuel filter and running through a tank of ethanol free mix. I'm most pleased by the fact that it starts on the first pull every single time. After getting the saw up and running I also got my alaskan mill setup and set to trying to make some planks. The saw performed great, but I definitely need a longer bar than 20" for this to be viable on making the very first cut. I ended up having to free hand the very first cut to get the log to be narrow enough which as you can image didn't come out very straight.

    Speaking of bars -- it seems like one of the bars I received when I bought the saw wasn't quite the right model for this saw. It's an Orgeon 584274 D6. The existing holes in the bar didn't line up with the tensioner peg, but I was able to use a step drill bit to enlarge two of the existing holes to make it work. The other oddity was that the 20" Oregon ripping chain (72RD072G) that I ordered worked fine with the Oregon bar after my modifications, but it seemed to have too many links to be used with the other 20" bar that came with the saw.

    I'd like to order a 30" or 32" bar to use with my Alaskan mill. I don't plan on milling anything that size, it's just that I lose a good 6" of bar with from the mill mounting points on the bar. What's the correct bar to buy that won't need to be modified?

    When I installed my lines, i put a dab of 2 stroke oil on the line and it pulls right on in, I don't fight with them. Glad to hear you got it going.

    Tried that trick, but it was still a total battle. Kinda seemed like the 5/16 OD was too large and 1/4 OD was too small.

    Well at least you didn't use that EPA double wall fuel line, that stuff don't like getting stretched one bit.

    Nice looking saw, are you pulling the line from the tank out the hole, didn't think it was that hard but I have only done it with 5/16 line so I don't know the difference. Still want a 4400, someday I'll find a nice one

    3300 saw I bought just for the parts mainly. Nice 335 recoil cover was on it and nice p+c. Just pulled it down to see what all it needed. Now prob just set on shelf being I got plenty of 54cc runners.

    Guy on my CR group and site needed a 60cc topend. Told him NP I have a runner I will pull down and include the NOS oem piston I used in a 365 and this 380 test saw. I figure $50 isnt bad for a compete 60cc used topend.

    That's pretty cheap, defiant not a bad price for a topend. What's the biggest topend that would fit a 2800, just curious.

    Sorry to ask this again, but can anyone point me to a 30" or 32" bar I can use with my 4400? Oregon doesn't list anything bigger than 28".

    eBay my friend, D007 or 176 bars
    You may need to use an S clip with some of the 3/8” bar mounts

    Is there a "decoder ring" of sort for these tail mount codes? The one I currently have on is marked "D6" which I have found no information on at all. It required a bit of modification but seems to work fine. [​IMG]

    Is the 335 cylinder chrome, I know the 3300 isn't, not the one I wouldn't want to use.
    Found the info on the 335, chrome bore.

    Also found the pp330 is chrome. What's the difference between the 330 and 335, impulse fitting?
