All he is saying is don't criticize Husqvarna for your problems with a cheap knockoff, they don't belong in the same sentence. @Spike60 is an experienced tech and knows his chit. Listen to him, you might learn something.

Thanks for making a stink about some advice I gave.  I guess I could mention that the 372XT can have a cracked intake, a seal leak in the crankcase, a leak in the head gasket, and a sticky throttle.  I guess you feel this forum is for bashing other members.  I want to get help and give some advice and info if I have any to share.
Ya know what? This forum is not for bashing other members. Its not allowed, but it was also not built to dispense idiototic information. I don't have a clue about chainsaws, i would not attempt to pretend, because I would be called out as a fool, and they would be right.  Kinda exactly how you looked on the topic when you were expounding your complete and utter lack of knowledge on how many bf of lumber are in a cord. The chainsaw boys here do not play.

Think sawguy21's post is a clear and simple clarification to those who will listen.

This like 2.0 of another thread where the same premise was laid out where since a Huztl XT was bad the OEM must be as well, I guess I understand how that "leap" can be done and obviously the discussion trying to explain the difference between clone and real OEM saw wasn't accepted. That's a shame, but it's not worth a battle to spam a classy site like this. AND statistics are on display here.  If that concept isn't understood, my guess is no amount of logic will change that, like other things in life; an understanding that is a 50/50 mix of reality & logic vs. pure emotion. :) At some point just let it go ...

Funny you say that.  Apparently alot of people on this forum think the 372XT is the design flaw!  Well...I guess buying a cheapo model to get me buy isn't so bad then.  I spent less than a 1/3 the price of oem to find that out.  Now you're telling me eveyone LOVES these XT's.  Are you a dealer?

A dealer? Are you a troll?  I don't think I have ever heard anyone bash a 372 or a 372XT.  If you have legitimate issues with your cheap, Chinese knock off then by all means participate and guys will gladly help.  Some have turned those into at least a reliable saw.  If on the other hand you simply live to stir the pot and cause trouble - well, us Admins play even less than the chainsaw folks do.

I have most likely put more hours on a XT husky than just about any person here , there is no design flaw that I have seen and I have saws with a lot of hours on them . all that was wrong with the first guys post is the carb needed to be adjusted richer , if your at the carb limiter just shove the outside ring on the jet in and adjust the jet to where it needs to be then let the limiter ring come back out on the jet , the end of a file works good for shoving the ring in. if your idle is high enough   the advance in the coil kicks in and that raises the rpms up and down so keep the idle down below where the coil advance kicks in

It could be a kinked fuel line. Same thing was happening with my X Torq right after I rebuilt it. Ran fine one minute and the next it was running lean. The metering lever being too low as well could cause it run lean as well.

That could be it Austin. I actually kinked a fuel line doing a quickie rear mount replacement for a guy a couple months back. Pulled some extra line out when moving the tank to get at the mount, and it then kinked when I put the tank back in place. Never started the saw, or I would have found it. Normally don't do "while you wait" repairs, but but this customer is one of the exceptions. And the stories he tells when you are working on his saws are priceless.

Sorry I struck a nerve there with O.R. Don't feel it was "bashing" as I said nothing personal; just a little sarcastic/humorous disagreement. But it's worth noting that I see an awful lot of people come to this site for advice. A lot of "I'm New" guys looking for a little help. Many aren't looking to stay and hang out; just have a problem they need some asistance with. I gotta assume something must be directing them here, identifying FF as a good reference source. So, it's worth the effort to keep the quality of the advice up there with the forum's reputation. Just sayin'. :)
