Is it a chainsaw or a gas powered hula hoop?

I haven't ever experienced any problems with my 372xp. Although I didn't buy it new it was manufactured in 2000. All machines that are mass produced will, from time to time, not get everything right. The reason I say this is because I build saws from grave yard saws( fraunk-n-Steen). At times the grave yard saw is a relatively new saw. One application or another didn't come just right and the owner discarded the saw. Improvise, adapt, overcome. Yes I'm an old jarhead. The saw ain't got no sense. It will only do what you enable it to. Take a step back and look at it at a different angle. It would be a mistake to discard the saw because of the tank vent.

I just sold my Stihl 090AV chainsaw which served me well over the last 23 years. It's  kind of a benchmark saw at 137cc and built out of solid magnesium .
Probably the most durable reliable saw ever built. But when I changed its tank vent hose last week I noticed how simple it was, just a 2 inch long piece of black rubber fuel line stuck on a nipple screwed into the fuel tank. It has just a coarse thread  plug on the upper end of it.
Works reliably, does it's job.

I look at every chainsaw having it's own mechanical soul, how it's cared for and treated by its end user determines what quality of life it will have.
I myself cringe when I see some idiot start up a cold saw and hold it wide open throttle to warm it up,  then blipping the throttle in a victory statement kind of way. I wouldn't let that person touch my dog.

what is the right way to warm up a cold saw?
I'm no pro, but own couple Jonsered [CS2165 and 2050 turbo].

Both are serving me well and will like to keep them running.

As soon as it starts running from cold set it on the ground and let it idle for a minute. If it won't idle then it needs some maintenance.
Then pick it up and slowly increase revs until it runs clear.
Never rev a cold saw to WOT  blipping the throttle up and and down. Very bad for the connecting rod bearings.

Wow! Just sold 090. I relate to your feelings about the 090, except for mine is the 99 cc 064. Over two decades of service and recently went through a total restoration. How is it my good man you were able to part with such a valuable, reliable piece of equipment that has had it's place in making you the man you are today. Just curious I guess. Holmentree I call myself paying attention to your post. My perception of you is that you are very informed with vast experience. However, until a moment ago I don't recall noticing the statement making a living with a saw since age 16. Impressive, you seem to have all your limbs as well. Anyway, the advice of how to start a cold saw hit the nail on the head. I refuse to let someone cold start one of my saws unless I have seen them cold start other saws in a similar manner as you described.

Thanks for the kind words knuckledragger,
It was hard letting the 090AV go, but I felt it's time to turn to a new page as the saw did its job milling lumber and cutting paper rolls at the local paper mill. But those jobs are just a memory now. A young fella bought it and he can get good use out of it.
That sounds like  a very impressive 064 project you have there. The 064 is one of my favorite saws.
I'm working on a project too at the moment with 2 066 and 1 064 I have on my bench. I'm pulling the 066's out of retirement and putting them back to work with my tree service.
The left side saw in my pic is  1992 066 Mag which will wear the 064's (middle) narrower flywheel and rewind housing . Then I'll have a great compact 064 style 066 that will handle a 21"-25" b/c.
The '96 066 to the right needs a new coil and some rubber parts . Seeing this 066 has the upgraded bigger crank and crankcase it will handle the 28"-36" b/c.
 With its larger flywheel and rewind housing it will retain the extra cooling capacity for the longer b/c's.

I ran all different size Stihls for over 25 years and never had a problem with vibration. And during those years the Jonsereds and Huskys were no better for reducing vibration with their rubber mounts.
Now everyone has spongy spring mounts.
Just be thankful we didn't have to spend years making a living with the old Homelites or Macs :D

I wasn't so lucky.  ::)   An outfit I worked for, for eight years ran Homelites; SXLAO's, 925's, 1050's, 1130G's & 2100's. Da truly sad part was we had been running Jonesreds before that.  :(

 I have an old Stihl 041 FarmBoss that had no AV, and while it's still a runner it will vibrate your wrists. I don't use it much but keep it going in hopes I stumble into a deal on a Lewis Winch.

Coxy
Seems your thread went sideways here.
Have the same issue with one of my jreds. Dealer told me the only fix is a new tank.
I like the way they run but seems something is always falling off.

I bought a stihl 028 super in '84-85 brand spanking new. First new saw I'd ever purchased. I was right proud of that saw. In fact, that particular saw is most of the reason I have continued to buy stihl products. Don't get it twisted now, I have professional husqies and Jonsered saws as well. The vibration of a saw can come down to something as simple as excessive dirt. Now then, I'll eat grits quick enough. Given a choice however I'd ask for potatoes. There's something about outdoor work, 2cycle equipment, and potatoes that I'm fond of. A compact 066...intriguing. That is a great example of improvisation, adaptation.
