I got my Dads old one, thought it was just good for dumpster. I took it apart and with no skill I managed to get it back working with the help of a few youtube videos. ( this one is complete tear down and rebuild
In the process of rebuilding this saw, my biggest issue was finding the bolts I lost in my messy garage, I did find a few interesting things about this saw.
Most of Poulan chainsaw have the same 42 cc motor and it only the chain bar length and the model numbers on the box the varies the parts inside are all the same.
This saw does not have good reputation, not indented for sustained usage but for the DIY it great. references : https://www.arboristsite.com/community/ ... st-3142746
Some simple mods can , such a muffler tweaking can bring out the power of 42 cc engine that's really inside and the 33cc as indicated on the box. Overview of mod seen here :
After all the fuss with the rebuild I went to purchase a blade file at my local cnd tire and I see : If time is money is cheaper buying new but not as fun.
After all is said and done the saw works well except its biggest flaw, the chain oiler is not adjustable and it's always pissing bar oil, indicated in blue below. Keeping the chainsaw on its side with bar up stop the bar oil from leaking out.
