    I will have to get out my book "Chainsaws A history" by David Lee, and read it again. I know it talks about Chainsaw Makers being bought out and changing hands. It's a nice book and very informative. I do wish it had more pictures of the makers complete model lines.

    Your lucky you found a 2083 magnesium clutch cover because a lot of them were plastic just like the Poulans. I do know that there were few and far between yellow clutch covers made for the 505 in mag. Heck I might even have one now that I think about. A lot of saws I have not looked at for awhile.

    Sorry but no. That is my milling saw. I put a MS660 piston in it and finger ported it.
    Here is a few saws of the models we are talking about.

    Well it's head wasn't arrow shaped til the hill of my boot popped it. Don't care for a snake in the house. Figured it came in that day when I had the door open doing some work, going in and out the house.

    Would you be willing to part with one of those yellow mag covers? I would much rather have a yellow mag one than the plastic yellow one. My 505 came with the plastic and the West Coast dog and handle setup. The plastic cover is developing a crack where the outside dog is attached. I bought a mag red Jonsered one and then decided against using it because it made the saw look like a frankinsaw. poulanpro505upgraded 009.JPG I can't seem to find the red mag one now, it's probably in the shed at the bottom of a pile of parts boxes.

    It's to bad Poulan stopped at the 505. It would have been cool to have a Poulan that was like a Jonsered 902 or 903 Super. Heck, it would have been awesome to have a Poulan version of the Jonsered 2094

    I had 3 NOS and 1 used in metal. Only have 1 NOS and 1 used metal in yellow left.

    Right now I am holding onto those for my needs, just in case. IMO just paint your red metal one the matching yellow.

    I seen a pic of this yellow metal one painted red. Saved a pic and info of it on my website. http://chainsawrepair.createaforum....-cover-445-425-505-415-475/msg76795/#msg76795

    I have painted them orange, purple and lime green myself.

    My 505 445 full wraps I did. Also in half wrap too.
