I wouldn't... Just like buying a new car and revving the motor without the flywheel attached. No resistance allows the motor to freespin. Resistance is needed for proper breakin/ ring seating.

Didja get it for milling or felling/ bucking?  8)

fellling, bucking big 30" plus firewood - used saw. That's why I'd like to see how well it runs.

My biggest are a pair of 372's, but both are ported. Running 24" and 28" bars with 8 pin sprockets. The 395 should pull a 32"-36" with ease.  :)

Just don't pin it without a load. It might start shedding vital innards.

I got my 385xp this week. My Alaskan attachment came last week. I just need to find time to put it together. So many " can you come look at this for me" and " were meeting so-and-so for lunch" I need me time, it ain't getting any warmer. A big thanks to mark (Oldsaw) for all his advice. I can't wait to get started.

Glad I could help.  Hope you have fun, I know I have with mine.  It takes a few "pieces parts" to get a system together, but it will all become clear as you start cutting.

Time will be your worst enemy...not enough of it to mill as much as you want, or need.

Say, what's a good way to clean the fuel tank? Seems to have some sawdust in it. Sloshed gas around in it and poured it out a couple times.  Also looks like the spark plug wire is taped...think it's ok? Seems to run ok, just put a dab of gas in it and fired it a little.  Thanks - David

You've probably done the best thing already.  That's why they have a filter in the tank.  When the filter gets clogged with sawdust, you replace it.
I eat a high-fiber diet.  Lots of sawdust!

I know I don't post much but most of you guys are not in as deep as I am with my chainsaw issues...... Hence the picture of my 3120 marcel with the Klotz sticker. Picture was taken by KF_Tree (Ken) at the Deposit, NY Lumberjack show this past season. The 395 in the back ground is also mine. As for most of you running that 3120 would not be good in that it would blow up in your hands. The first time you touch one of those saws off and it does the twisty twist in your hands with the bar going straight up in the air. next you half to clean out your pants. I have $3000 invested into that saw. And I did 24 shows this past year.

Now back to the 395. A light muffler port will help cool the motor off and free up a little power. If you look inside of the muffler there is a small pipe that starts on oneside and goes to the other. It just kills the avalible power.

CCicora, With the little pipe are you saying to eliminate it? Drill a hole in it? Curious. Reid

You can do a couple of things. 1 grind a big hole in it to help short circut the exhaust out the port. or 2. drill out holes in the front to help relieve some preasure that way.

Not likely, what probably happened is they broke or cracked the spark plug by using a regular socket or torqued it in too hard. so, they taped it to hold it together.
