Just put together a 2253........I'm guessing this was the same thing that killed this one.View attachment 68738 Well, what are the odds I've found the killer of this 550?
Any of you guys doing a timing advance on the 550 / 2253?
David did you check all the normal stuff on it...... Plug, Air / Fuel filter, Spark screen?I have a 550 that will not idle at all. what is the first thing to check?
the springs are out of the clutch, it is the 2 C spring style. how do I get them back in?
It is worth reflashing the autotune to the newest update firmwarebrand new here, hi all.
I bought a brand new 550xp in late 2017 - just realized by its serial number that it was made in 2013.
It's a triobrake model, so maybe it was hard to move, or what not. Regardless, with only about ten hours or so on it, it's now in shop because it's lost nearly all compression and won't start.
My question here is - should I be concerned about having gotten such an old saw? I'm trying to see what improvements I may have missed out on. I've come across a few, a venting improvement on fuel tank - anything really meaningful?

If your gonna throw it out send it my wayI've since learned that newer 550XP saws have revised crank, bearings, piston, cylinder, oil pump, and 4 different revisions to the carb. Will definitely be pushing for a new saw !
Lesson learned. Next time asking for a serial no and date of manufacture are wise questions. Some saws brands/models it don't matter so much but 5 series Hooskies...I've since learned that newer 550XP saws have revised crank, bearings, piston, cylinder, oil pump, and 4 different revisions to the carb.
