You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.
  • Please be aware that we have recently gotten a wave of users that, when researched, are found to be from Nigeria.

All I did was delete base gasket

Hope I'm not raining on the parade, but from all the posts I've read, deleting the base gasket on a 346xp sets the squish at 0.013". It is suggested to run squish at 0.017". This usually results in 170 psi compression. The "crazy compression" could also indicate the squish is reduced beyond 0.017".

The 2152 I believe is similar to the 353, which itself is very similar to the 346xp. Whoever buys this saw might want to check the squish, and ask if it is in acceptable tolerances for longevity on this saw.

If i remember correctly ,it was at .021 or .022.
homelite 410 helped me on this ,he would not let that go if had been that close.
If that is wanted i will sure check it.
Im not tryin to pull one over on anybody,thats the last thing I want here.
That's a generous offer. If the squish checks out I can't explain that kind of compression, unless some oil was dribbled into the spark plug hole to help seal the ring? Most 50cc saws don't need a decomp, good thing this has one.

After the post was made i retested the comp,and measured the sqish.
I dont know why comp is lower but the first test was at 90+deg,the 2nd one(this pic)was at 68deg.


Will that temp difference cause this?
Can someone with more experience explain this?
thanks

tested a couple other saws to see what they showed with the gauge.
brothers stock 5105 was 195,stock 2152 was 175,so i think the gauge is ok.
Hmm, I think if the saw has sat vs recently ran can make a difference, mostly because a recently ran saw will have oil on the cylinder walls and seal better, and if 'just ran' a warm saw will have expanded rings which close down the ring gap and create a better seal. But the change in weather shouldn't affect it too much. Changes in weather can affect the tune of a saw, or the pressure in the gas tank though.

175psi seems a little high on a stock 2152 (husky 353), especially one that is used. I'd expect close to 150 on a new one. But it's good to know that this saw has better compression than your brother's saw. Likewise, 195psi on a stock Dolmar 5105 (50cc?) is also pretty high, and would, in theory, definitely require a decomp button.

Chalk it up to husky inflating numbers on their saws with their gauges (ie, I think your gauge may be off).

I agree with a stock 2152 being high at 175. I have one with a 346 jug and hitting the 200 mark,but with a lot of machine work. Sorry to hear about the job.

If I remember correctly from other posts here and elsewhere, the Dolmars(especially 5105's and 6100's)are known to have high compression in stock form. This is one reason they use their Easy Start system, so 195psi in stock form is very likely. I am not saying the guage is off or spot on.....just saying.
How does a guy know if his comp. guage is reading accurately anyway?

Yes, I've seen reports that it is high in stock form too, but not 195psi.

Generally you won't know unless you have three gauges. When I had one, I was sure of my compression, until someone cast doubt on my gauge. So I acquired a second gauge that proved a different measurement from the first gauge. Now I didn't know which gauge to believe. It wasn't until I borrowed a third gauge that I had a consensus to determine which gauge was mostly accurate and which was off.
