Interesting fix
« on: January 19, 2023, 01:38:38 AM »
Picked up this 380CD. These have the plastic handle that kinda is missing on this one :D  This fellow created this fix to keep it going. The center piece with the black piece on it slides back and forth under the straps that hold it in. Itís connected to the throttle control rod and it works like a darn! The saw runs fine. I have the proper handle to put things right. I think this is pretty cool!

Guess ya gotta plan on wearing gloves when you run that girl.  :) 

Had my 280 out yesterday. Nearly identical to yours. 480 looked quite different. All those saws used the same top end. Starting with the L77.

A guy should preserve that just to capture the history of one interesting shade tree repair.  Maybe a guy could install it on an empty case and hang it on the wall for display.

Local glove sales would increase.

Gloves for sure! The guy rolled a log onto the handle when cutting firewood. He jimmied it together to finish his wood. Following year he bought a new saw.
Here's a couple 480's beside the 380. Quite similar except for the 480 finally getting metal handle. Profile of the top cover is a bit different. I have 3 480's I can build a good one from.

Don, do you slide the black piece forward to increase engine speed?   And we may joke about his fix, but it kept the saw in service.

Exactly. The whole piece with the black thing attached slides back and forth under the two straps across it. Quite inventive. Just put your thumb on the black portion and push it up. Throttle return spring on the carb is more than enough to push it back to idle
