Last night on Ebay a newly converted (10-15 tanks) 6401 NWP Bailey's BBK w/HD airfilter and original P&C 160psi. sold for $345 listing #220784535449.  I don't get it this is the second one I have seen go for the same money as straight 6401????????????

Here is my WAG to why.  Lot of HD 6401 being bought for $200-$250. Then a $99 AFM BB 81cc put on. Some have been known to be free to dealer cost of $50. Thats why IMO.

I would pay more for one with OEM 79cc top end. JMO

Whats a HD filter kit? $69 or so? It's been used so the price is cut in half now. Just my thoughts.

A look inside my first woods ported 6401 saw with 7901 top end.  I bought new covers with the pre-filter built into the carb cover. That cut down on the chips getting through to the filter.

Mine was stock with windows. Way before guys started using different pistons and shims under cylinders.

 I hear there is the 52mm Wiseco's out there now too.  Look like the 62mm 3120 piston in 52mm.

Thread with throwing pistons out there.  http://chainsawrepair.createaforum.com/dolmar/dolmar-7900-piston-choices/
