Efco 158
« on: July 29, 2011, 06:42:46 pm »
Have enough parts to begin project 158 Efco. Putting a 156 cyl on a 165 base. Will put me closer to the 60 cc limit at a small show in Sept.

Just did a quick fitup, 156 cyl on a 165 case with no gasket. Piston hits head at top of stroke. Will try a gasket tomorrow.

Thought I had some gaskets. Had to order some. New gaskets are .045 thick. Should roll over with a gasket.

156 cyl on 165 crankcase. Squish with gasket .020. Works for me. Stock or port, which way to go?

I would probably like to see how it runs stock. Then port it.

I would run her stock first to compare to the other stock efco saws in the same size range.
