They're a great family of saws, if you ever need to replace the top end a 346xp cylinder & piston will bolt on along with the cylinder adapter for a 350.all this chainsaw overhauling got me guilty enough to give my old Husqvarna a much-deserved cleaning. the thing just runs, so you know how that goes, the squeaky wheel thing. no squeak, no attention.
this saw seems to oil fine, and it has a really nice air filter design. it's a model 340. View attachment 999432 View attachment 999433 View attachment 999434 View attachment 999435 from what I understand that means 3rd gen, 40cc? made in Sweden and has a Mahle top end
currently sporting a Carlton bar and chain since a few years back.

Some cheap insurance against needing a new cylinder/piston would be to upgrade your plastic intake clamp with the updated metal one or perform the recommended modification to fit a metal clamp over the existing one
