    Edit.
    Later in this thread page 9.
    i bought four of the chinese 365 saws from china and converted them to 372s.

    Here's one of those ebay saws 79.08 shipped they have many names and plastics but identical chassis much lighter than expected ill have to weigh it.
    Has a sucky start assist that's the only thing i don't like started third pull 32-1 red armor for the first tank cuts very much like a stihl 028 290 just lighter and more vibes adjustable oiler works good rim sprocket really like the chisel chain ran a tank empty on oak never stretched or dulled Kingpark canada brand hopefully gonna run the pee out of it Saturday firewood for three family's. 20170131_152738.jpg 20170131_152759.jpg 20170131_154302.jpg 20170131_152814.jpg 20170131_155913.jpg

    Compression after full throttle for one tank and the vibes are not bad kind of like a 257 husky. 20170131_160446.jpg

    I was looking at how the line of the brake band and the clutch are out. Its the thing iv consistently found on all the generic saws like the one you have there.

    I took it off to reposition the band it's actually designed like that the main body where the bar studs are is flat then the tail flairs out to accommodate a rubber chip deflector the band has full engagement. 20170131_174803.jpg
