    Default 372xp rebuild advice?

    Anyone rebuilt their 372 and can recommend a place to get parts, and especially a good walkthrough video? I've never done it but I'm sure I'm capable just like to see it done once to know what I'm doing

    YouTube has a few videos for that saw. Most parts are online for them also. Or google nearest dealer parts and kits are available for them.

    I just put a new piston in a Husky 350. A very easy job. Piston ring and wristpin on eBay $25.00 Lots of rebuild videos on YouTube. My cylinder had no grooves just aluminum on the wall. Cleaned it off with some muriatic acid and a Qtip. Just be careful of the fumes, you don't want to breathe that stuff.

    I’ve only ever rebuilt stihls, but I’ve had a fair amount of luck on eBay buying kits to rebuild them, but most times they weren’t OEM parts. Keep in mind you get what you pay for. Sounds like it shouldn’t be too bad of a job. Farmertec made some half decent aftermarket parts
    2017= 11 buckets and hobby pan
    2018= 160 taps on 3/16, Leader 2x6
    2019= 450 taps on 3/16, 3 4"membrane RO
    2020= 500 taps
    2021= 600 taps CDL 12” vac filter
    110 HP Ford TW-5 for hauling sap

    Just a kid trying to figure out the sugaring game!

    Check out either Hearth.com or Arborsite.com forums, some real experienced chainsaw enthusiasts over on both of those sites and very helpful. I bought a mint Stihl 400 Magnum off a guy after asking for his help rebuilding another saw...shipped it for free from Oregon.

    Anywhoo, just saying they are good people - good luck!
