562XP (early model) mods
« on: September 07, 2020, 09:13:58 AM »
 

 

 


 

After researching most of the hot starting problem fixes I decided to do the least harm and go one step at a time, so far so good.  Really had no starting problems last week when it was hot and sunny here.  Used a hole saw and made three holes, ran about three tanks of fuel with no hot starting problems as I cleaned gator trails in the woods.

I just bought a used new style cover that way I can put the original back on in the winter. I also noticed on my saw someone took out the grommet in the divider so that doesnt help in the heat either.

I do not cut as much when it gets cold especially now we head south for the coldest part of the winter.  Always plan to cut wood on Thanks Giving morning instead of rabbit hunting like I did when the boys in our family were young.  Looking forward to seeing how the 562 runs now.

Not too sure about the location of those holes. If you feel air blowing out of the top hole, then what it really amounts to is a loss of cooling air before it completes it's path over all of the cooling fins. The other 2 will allow the air box to fill up with chips and dust a lot faster than normal. Just going to have to keep an eye on that and clean more often.

Thanksgiving morning cutting sounds like a good tradition to get started. :)

What I was thinking but didn't say, cause it's stupid, is putting brass grommets in the holes with coarse brass screens. It would be a good start on a steampunk chainsaw, and would keep stuff out of the holes. That would be a lot of work and expense unless the task particularly amused you.

You might want to look at the Air Injection delete threads. Some of us have found value there.
I think it's a great saw but under-appreciated.

Used my 562XP again yesterday with temps around the mid sixties with no problems.  Cutting up a maple tree that was taken down with some dead ash near my house.  When I was done the engine cover was removed and checked for dust and wood chips, looked the same as before I started.  At least the mods made may make me more apt to keep things cleaner and yes I think the 562 is a great saw.
