TW just click the IMG code under pic you want posted and then paste the pics you wanted posted. That link is all your pics. 

OK maybe you wanted them all at once, my bad.

Isn't that 361 ugly compared to two real saws.

The 962 was replaced with the 165. Less power. In field use the 165 feels weaker than the 156 also.  962 cyl kits are available to put on a 156.  ;)

No, no windows, going to stick with the 962 piston rather than the Jonsred one. The 962 piston is wide enough to take the ports close to 70% and there is no problem with the ring end pin location like there would be with the single ring Jonsred piston.

Was a little casting flaw on the one pin boss, looked pretty shallow and smoothed off the rough edges a bit. Should be ok, but if the piston was going to be pushed to the absolute limits who knows.



Finished the piston up, no pop up as there should be lots of compression just bringing the squish down to 0.020.

TW, what did you think of the spare 165 cyl as compared to the 962?
