    Not done with saw yet. Carb needs rebuilt IMO.

    Buttttttt Tell you something I found on the walkerized muffler mods. They take 2 short studs and put a bolt in with nuts and braze them shut. Then just braze the support.
    While testing the saw and finished I shook saw side to side etc and could here a banging going on. I text guy and told him I wanted to pull muffler and see whats going on in the saw.
    Well one of the nuts was banging around in the muffler and the stud piece no where to be found. Hoping it went forward and out of muffler.
    Anyhow I said you want me to leave that other one or use a punch and get it out of there too. He agreed with my thinking and get it out of there.

    Still bugs me not knowing where that thread short stud ended up though.

    It must've gone out you'd think? Otherwise it'd be done in no?

    Seems risky.

    Much better. Runs good with carb and cuts good with 24" sharpened. He will think a different saw compared to how it came in.

    The muffler came loose in my ms440. One of the two screws inside the muffler just disappeared.
    Pretty worrying.
    But no damage seen, so I guess that the screw found its way out.

    That's what people get for neglecting to check the muffler bearings now and then.

    squisher JMO and the logger when we both tested the saws.
    The walker OE 372 saw dont have the torque in the cuts with 24". We both like more.
    The 372 NE XT that was ported local for $120 was stronger in the cuts torque wise.
    The stock 576 regular carb was stronger in the cuts torque wise too.

    Just what we saw cutting with 24" full comp buried.

    But it did run good just not as strong buried 24" if you pushed or dawged in at all.
