Good find Steve.  When you buy the oem Echo piston kit, you also receive the small end crank bearing, with the pin, clips, rings and related.  When considering the price of an aftermarket piston for $25-30, the bearing doesnt come with the it.  Figure adding around $15 for the bearing, so the price is actually quite good for oem.

 Plus those OEM CS400 pistons are work of art compared the some aftermarket pistons I've seen, seems like they weigh about 1 ounce.  Steve

Thanks for all the input ;)

One of my 440's has a three piece clamshell design so one could increase the comp quite easily it would seem. It is the latest model of the two and the one that will get the new piston.  The other one also needs a coil as well as a p&c so I'll part it out.

I've tried the hammer and chisle to get the clutch off but no luck yet.  I'm looking for a large socket to butcher into a clutch removal tool.  I'm assuming it comes off clockwise.

These both need a new piston.  Cylinders will clean up.  One also needs a coil but at least I got that one for free.  Anybody know where you can get decent after market pistons?  Echo wants about $70.00 each Ouch! I good working order should get $150-$175 each

Thanks for the help,

Lee

One actually turned out to be a 4600, still needs a p&c as well as a coil so just a parts saw this one.  Not too bad as the seller gave it to me, so he knew!

There was a running 440 on CL for $20. 

I got a 4500 parts saw here. I like that series of saws 4500 4600 5000 etc

Further tothe new piston for my cs440.  I've had trouble removing the clutch and went to the expense of ordering a clutch removal tool.  Having just tried it with my 18volt impact tool the bloody clutch still wont come off. I want to put a breaker bar onto the tool but don't want to break the rod.  Yes I'm trying to undo it by turning clockwise. How about heating it up? ???
