Husqvarna 346xp Chainsaw Scored Piston Compression Test & Startup




What do you think about this video?

Daniel Padgett: Love your videos very helpful

Marack Obama: My Stihl 026, which I've got from my father in low, have much more scores and it worked with them few last years. And I wonder how :) Of course, it need much more time to cut wood, because of lack of compression. My father in law even thought to throw away this saw :D but i asked to give it one more chance :D
Thank you, Dony for a great videos and explanation!

richard: Lucky that saw never came up and had you in the face! #tipofthebar

john reilly: I'll gladly buy that chainsaw from you looking for one like that

D eez: What do you think has happened DonyBoy73?
Anyone else have any ideas?

What and where does the contact occur that causes scoring on the piston; below the ring?


BeaudreauBell1141 (1Year ago) suggests engine is running to lean and in turn exhaust gases get hotter and then the aluminum piston goes(I guess he means it gets scored) but he also kind of mentions that the “PISTON RING” often gets seized in its groove.

"I think" this “Seized Piston Ring” scenario makes the most likely cause because if ring is seized in its groove, (likely due to carbon buildup) it stops the piston from being centered and when ring wears away on part of its area the piston will rub on the cylinder wall along with metal shavings and carbon. I think this is the likely cause because I recently took apart a Poulan where all the evidence pointed to the Seized Piston Ring in its piston groove.

Adam Woodturner: I have the 346xp but after first 2 logs I cut I start getting some oil burn smoke on my chain and then the chain goes dull and lots of smoke coming from the chain bar. What could be my problem?
Thanks

Shaun Victor: I just purchased a used Stihl 026 and its running right at 140PSI and it has no scoring whatsoever and it runs great.140 is not really a low reading.When you pushed the piston around inside the cylinder that was weird.That top end is not going to live long,thats for sure.
You should pull it down and see if the cylinder is worth salvaging and maybe get away with a new piston and ring.
Would like to know how it all works out.
Interesting video,thx.

Dylan B: Ok I just thought if I did sell it I would notify the buyer way before hand. I have two other older lawnboys and have also thought about using it for parts. What would you suggest?

donyboy73: I prefer not selling things with know defects

Dylan B: Donyboy I have a older 2 cycle lawnboy and the piston is very scored. It has about 90 PSI but still runs ok. I was thinking about selling it before i saw the scoring. Do you think I should still sell it?

donyboy73: very possible

Xxpoison99xX: I put an expansion chamber on my saw off an 83 rm80 and it runs waaaaaay faster

Xxpoison99xX: Could a lightly scored piston score a cylinder?

cyrus romer: I have a super xl homelite chainsaw and the piston has scoring on the bottom side of the piston and the piston is loose in the case is that bad but it runs fine

cyrus romer: Thanks I'm going to kahlers to buy a bolt but man there expensive 1.42 for one bolt

donyboy73: SOUNDS LIKE THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM

cyrus romer: I have a 345 that won't start it has spark and good compression but there is scoring on the intake Side but none on the exhaust side I noticed a bolt missing on the underneath the motor could that be the problem not enough back pressure

cyrus romer: I have a 345 chainsaw and it won't start and there is scoring on the intake side but I noticed that its missing a bolt underneath it could that be the problem why it won't start

donyboy73: i know but i just don't have time to keep up
