well, not really, this has all been done before. but since none of you guys build saws and you only use this forum for entertainment, i thought i should do a thread on this saw.
starting out with a saw that @cuinrearview dubbed the weed whip, due to it having been assembled with crank stuffers from a husky trimmer. see his build thread here on assembly and fitment of the stuffers:
when i saw this thread i thought this could be a cool thing for a play/race saw. problem is the “cups” are backordered from husky for a while and i wanted to get workin on a 3 cube so tim and i made a trade and i got a good solid saw with the stuffers installed. no before pics of the stock carb/intake etc…you can use ur imagination. this is where we are headed…

tim put this saw together with a cylinder that he got with some other stuff, seems as though somebody started port work and didnt finish. exhaust and intake and lowers had been dikked with, uppers were not touched yet. we ran this saw a couple years ago, it was really high strung, like would rev to the moon and fall on its face in the wood immediately. @huskihl cut as much as he could from base and squish without making a big flatspot on bottom of intake. we ran this saw again a little bit at @Fifelaker house this winter. it was better, more torque, but still tended to lose tons of rpm in the crust.

carb being used is a walbro ws-10. i picked it for a few reasons: A) i had a couple on hand. 2)in my limited experience they seem to deliver plenty of fuel and tune nicely. D) its bolt pattern fit the 390xp boot i wanted to use.

since exhaust and intake had plenty of duration to get goin, transfers were where i spent time. cut some card stock after some measuring, should get me around 125-127. probably still too much blowdown for a small quadport with stuffers but easier to grind out than to add it back later. i got rid of some of the mickey mouse ears on (bottom) of ex port…and smoothed things out.

This thread reminds me that I promised to send Tim a new hoof rasp and a longer base for his orbital sander.
Orbitals are for amateurs real builders use a belt sander sheesh… Don’t you have some cargo pants to model or something?

since transfers had to come up a long way i tried hard to keep the port within the original bevels, which actually seemed really excessive.
anybody that grinds on these and thinks their work looks rad, then takes a picture, knows how hard it is to take glamour shots of uppers. these were pretty rough from the factory in my opinion.

so we grind, and honestly, this intake setup is actually going to have a slight upslope as it enters cylinder. not ideal? probably. got no choice? definitely. but honestly, the way i see it, with the stuffers theres not a whole lot of room to send that fresh charge down the case anyway so it might as well follow the piston up…
