Looks like a craftsman 3800.

I thought the same thing myself, but the guy has the original manual and the specs were listing it @ 49cc. I thought the 3400 was something like 59cc or whatever and that was the smallest of these saws....???

I guess I could be wrong, but whatever - it'll be a 4000 soon enough. :thumbsup:

Have the green version with some 4triple0 under the hood. Cuts with any modern model.

Stock, that grey/black saw would be a 56cc 3400 (either labeled "3.0" or "3.4") or a 61cc 3800 (labeled "3.7"). Both the 3400 and 3800 have chromed pistons, bare bores, and thick rings. The 3.0 was a 'price point' saw that's actually a 3400 with different stickers. Value for the money indeed!

The 4000 is 64cc and has a chromed bore and bare piston (and thin rings). Different starter and AF/AF-cover setups. Some were sold in Canada as 3400XP (or something like that). Nicholas has one. Never sold as a Craftsman.........although at least one 'Wiggelized' grey/black Craftsman "4.0" exists.:D

Some of the red/black "3.7" labeled saws in this series were also 3800's, while most were 3700's.

A 3700 is 61cc like a 3800.............but has a chromed bore, bare piston, and thin rings.

There were also red/black "3.4" labeled 3400s.

I may be interested in the P/C from that grey saw (once it's pulled in favor of the 4000 P/C) if it's a 61cc 3800 top end. I have a red/black 3.4 with a smoked top end. Would like to put a 3700/3800 top end on it.

Wished you would have said something before I shipped that empty box to you :facepalm:. I have a 3400 cylinder on the shelf, muffler too I dont need. I'm sure it would have fit in there nicely. :wave:

That's OK Kevin. I have a 3400 P/C on a parts saw that are probably useable. If a 3800, 3700, or 4000 top end came along I'd rather use that just for a bit more displacement...

You know I only assume it is a 3400. Never measured bore. It was on a parts saw with 3400 recoil and style. But had the high top black 4000 air filter cover and cyl cover. Guess I need to check and see what all they swapped. It was chromed p, bare bore for sure, so not 4000.

Interesting. With the chromed P it will be either a 3400 or 3800. Still have the high top AF cover?

I picked one up at a local antique tractor show. 61cc. Needs a rope pully to be 100% but other than that it's in great shape.
