Are there any members here with detailed knowledge of 80s-90s Shindaiwa saws?

I picked up a bunch of early Shindaiwa parts, nos and used as well as parts saws, some time back and just recently bought 2 680 and 550 parts saws.
I have all the manuals and IPLs that Shindaiwa.com and Benson had.
tough part is there are no pt#s on much of anything and it seems many models are the same but with a different model#, 680 was the prototype for the 695 (68cc, 49mm); 550, 580, 575, 577 (57.3cc, 45mm) all seem to be the same saw. These are the the main models I’m researching at the moment as well as the 750 (757 prototype) and 757. (73cc, 51mm)
I’m hoping to build one of each from what parts I have so far.
Any help, links or sites would be appreciated.

I'm no guru, but pretty familiar with the 695.

Pretty sure, 680 is the same as 695 except for the piston wrist pin which is 10mm on 680 & 11mm on 695, thus, the piston/clips & connecting rod are different also (piston rings are the same).
Ignition coil will interchange but 695 is limited & 680 is not from what I understand.
695 & 575 are on the same IPL.
695 part #'s start with 2155- & 575 part #'s start with 22152-.

Except for engine components, most things interchange on 695,680,550,580, 575 (I'm not familiar with the 577).

The hard part is that a lot of the part numbers have been superceded so it can be a pita to cross reference the part #'s.

Yamibiko still makes a lot of the parts for these saws, so ereplacementparts & other similar sites are a good source for superceded numbers & parts.

Interesting, thanks.
These 3-pc coils seem all the same. I haven't seen anything designating limited or unlimited. (I have a bunch of used) Are there any #s on any of them to look for?
I'll check the wrist pins, that makes sense.
Many of the same misc part#s showing up in so many IPLs makes it really confusing .
The FW in this 550 is marked 22150 vs 22155 for the 680 or 695 (not yet sure what it is :p) if the wtist pins are 10 vs 11 on 49mm pistons that is a good clue.

Do you know if there are different pins for the 4 45mm pistons on the 5-series saws?
I have near complete 575 and 577 PHs so can use them as references.

According to the 81yr old retired dealer I got all the parts from there were various prototypes for Shindaiwa. Some had short production runs like the 680. Some did not (750). I have what's left of the 750s :p. That is quite a story.

There may be a certain number that designates a limited coil but I don't know it.

Unfortunately, I'm only familiar with the 695 so can't comment on the 5 series pins.

I could be wrong but I think the 577 is a newer (than 575 ect) model.

The 680 continued a long life under the Echo name & may still be available in some countries, parts between the two are completely interchangeable.

@Lnk Is the local vintage Shindaiwa horder, maybe he'll chime in.😁
Was trying to stay out of this one Paul. You have way more knowledge about them than I do. I just like them. Let me know if you find a 488 cheap. Would like to find one for Brent, not tagging him here on purpose. If I can find him one I would send it to him. That 695 he sent me just needs a piston. Cylinder looks like it will clean up.

Also, I am not really the hoarder you are, I only have 4 shinny's, how many you got? Lol

Would love to see some pics of what you got, I don't need anything, unless you have an extra 695 piston, lol. My LRB piston worked well in my other one, so they are ok if you need one. Only option really unless you could sweet talk Paul out of one.

I have bags of mesh air filters for these saws, a pile of 680 and 757 starters and covers, a running 488 that I have yet to go through. A few 300/360 parts including tanks.
I do have pistons but don’t remember which…been a while since I looked through the boxes :p

Completely different airfilter setup than all the others as well as a different filter cover. It shares the same tank and handle with the 757…as well as the basic air filter system.
