yep! thats the same kit i recieved 8) the piston is just a domed flat top. the quality is exceptional on the cylinder as is for the piston. now to get the time to see if the original cylinder or the new one has the smaller combustion chamber.
i'll try to get pics tonight when i get home and throw them on here in on saturday morn.. :)
when I grow up, i wanna be an adult.

Those are some nice looking components

To get the pictures to show, I use the term "image" or "img" enclosed in the square looking brackets [] then the URL of the picture location and then I have to enter the delimiter  which is the same as the initial code except with a "/" in front of the term (example) "/img" . I cannot use the actual code here or the editor will try to use it.

Here is a link to a Wikipedia article explaining BB codes that gives you a more detailed explanation of what I was talking about in getting the pictures to show. Some of these codes will not work on the Chainsaw Repair but the article will give you insight as to what I'm talking about.

 :) i'll be going into this saw on monday :) the camera is already charged and ready, and i'll be staying away from the wood pile that week to get some work done on the mustang as well. gotta get that thing done. dad wants to bring it down to osweego and finish the interior before christmas ;)
broke the cam in last weekend, and it sounded pretty good at that time 8)

as for the saw: when i threw it together a few weeks back, it started out with just about 142psi. the cylinder was/is perfectly fine, however the piston was scratched, galled and scuffed pretty good, i mean very badly ;). took me a good while to free the rings, but they did free up. they were pretty scratched aswell. i wanted to see what the saw felt like in my hands so i figured i'd just clean that piston and rings up and try it out. to say the saw ran well is an understatement. i have put a bunch of tanks through it and it seems quite happy. the compression even came up to 155psi ;D the saw pulls pretty good, not near as good as some 80cc saws i've run but it will hold it's own.

oh, and the reason this saw burned itself up: catch screen in the carb from the pump to needle was plugged with saw dust. it was going to be a slow death. the saw had just under 90psi when i picked it up. you'll see the awsome wonder of this piston in all it's glory on wednesday,---or thursday ;D
BE PREPARED!! your eyes will pop and ooze right out of your head! :o ;D
