Starter Rope Size Question 8122

springvaleJuly 25, 2013

My vintage Poulan 361 chainsaw needs it's starter rope replaced (again). It's been in the family since it was new (late 70's - early 80's) so it's a sentimental piece. I've been able to find a parts diagram that indicates the rope is cut from a spool of 8122 rope. I can't seem to find anything on the Internet about how to buy 8122 rope. Does anyone know of an exact alternative?

My Poland S-25 from the late 70s - 80s all used about a 1/4â from the DealerâÂÂs supply that worked well and should work well for you. ItâÂÂs good to know that some of the monsters are still in use. I have actually carried an extra length of line since the 70âÂÂs. Away from suppliers you will learn the value of extras.

You should try to use the largest diameter of line that will wrap enough times around the spool to allow you a full pull. Look at 5/32" rope
