So, a single piece coil?
most of what I have is for 300/360; 575-580; 680-695 and 757
all but the 577 are 3-pc coils

that sure looks like a 500. Id bet parts would fit. There are a few 500pts on pts-tree and Replacement parts
ill look in my boxes for the echo pt, 22128-71602 which is the main coil

well, no joy 🤨

found pts for the 550, 575, 577 though :p
Cheers for that. Yea 1 piece. It may have been A.S thread a few years ago that I read the 500 and 510 are the same apart from something with the rear handle. Other than that I haven't read much about them.
I did wonder if any echo's may share the same coil.

Shindy mystery for the day...
Was going through the pile of parts boxes looking for some things for a couple guys here the other day.
So...
3 cylinders...one from a 550/575/577 (45mm open port, 11mm pin); one from a 680/695 (49mm open port, 12mm pin) and one from? It looks exactly the same, same bolt pattern, height, width (side to side), 4mm wider front to back. But...51mm and closed port just like the 750/757 but in a smaller package. It bolts right on to the 680 case. Distance from exhaust and intake ports is exactly the same as the 49mm.

I have 51mm pistons, new and used, so I'm going to see if they will fit. Should make a 73cc 695 😃

It is not even close in size to the 757, those are quite a bit larger

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 not a guru yet on these saws, but hope to gain more experience with this brand in the future. For now the only Shindaiwa saw I have is the 300, which I love. By the way, this is Arborist Site member Chainsaw Collectors. Good luck with these and looking forward to your progress. Like I said in the past, I want to know what you have left over for sale when you’re done building a couple.

On the mystery cylinder...
It is not from the shindaiwa cut-off saws, 7500 and 7600.
On those, the pistons are the same as used in the 757 and the cylinder itself has a different configuration, looking at the pic provided on replacement-parts site. The intake is quite different.

Picked up another mystery Shindy.
Might be a 680 or a 695.
Need to figure out the suttle differences. This one has a 1-pc braised muffler rather than the 3-pc that is similar to the Husky 61s.

All stripped down...ready to clean.

Clutch side case half is toast but I have extras...piston is done but the cyl should clean up. Otherwise, it seems to have all parts so a win 😁

Parts catalogues for Shindaiwa…
Bought these on EBay last week. Tons of great info. 1989 and 1996 so you can see how different parts are interchangeable between units.
I see the 577 and 757 models came out around the same time…and have the same plastic tank. I weighed the mag vs plastic and there is about a .3# difference. Still haven’t found anything on the mystery 51mm cyl.

Don't have any, but great to see the interest and knowledge here on these pre-merger saws. I remember the 757 caused a bit of a stir when it came out. Like the Olympyk 970, it was competitive enough to get noticed. But it was the small Shinnys like the 300 and 360 that were most popular on the pro side of the market. Great small frame saws for tree and bucket work. Only saws out there that could compete with the Husky 242/246 chassis.

Anyone know of a good paint match for the Shindaiwa red?

Well, the 550 case may be terminal but I'll see if some welding or JB will work. I media blasted most of the corrosion out. After 45min in the tank in soapy water there is still a tittle bit that needs to be hit again.

Only the clutch side has through holes, however.

First of several up and running :D

I need to figure out a better tank breather...leaks gas .
I made my own fuel line with a grommet and yellow. Works fine.
All the gas lines on this saw had shrunk over 20yrs of non use and wouldn't seal at all.
I'll order some oe for the other builds as it seems they are available.
