Echo CS 900 EVL
« on: November 11, 2015, 12:05:49 pm »
I'm about to buy this saw for $150, or hopefully a little less if I can lower the price. Anyone here have this saw? I'm going to need a lot of help putting this thing together. It's supposed to be apart. Compression is a bit over 140 according to the seller.

Just read there's an after market P&C for the 1200 I think. If the P&C is trashed, anyone know if I can install a bigger P&C or where I can get a replacement? Also, other than putting a higher pin sprocket or whatever they're called, anything else I can do to improve performance (i.e. squish, remove gaskets, etc)?

@Al Smith ran one at a gtg and said they had some grunt to them I recall.

Never ran one myself and only seen them for sale local a few times.   The price is right though. Let us know. 
$150 for a 90cc  is a buy all day IMO

So a brand new piston is only $26!? Does that sound too cheap too you? Damn, I may be able to keep this saw running forever.

I'm running a $15 aftermarket 066 piston.  Looked fine wouldnt recommend the rings or circlips that come with the afm kits unless meteor rings = caber. 
But I am running them all that came with the $15 piston because it is mine and I know what to watch for. If it happens it happens but I wanted to test one and see.

Anyone have specs on the piston? Like crown to pin center? Looks like a 54mm 2100 piston, sorta.
