To me from the pic of the cylinder down the bore. You can tell that the air leak was on the clutch side of the saw. I can bet it was a real screamer till it locked up. Hard to see but just missing a few fins is not always mean the jug is trash. Have a 660 cylinder with broken fins near the combustion chamber and the saw still runs great and I put it together 2 years ago. Did all the base screws feel tight?

Three were near the same right rear was a little less, but none felt like they were to spec.

The saw ran great, from the time I bought it new right up to the time it died.  Just glad that we're not burying it.  It has been my firewood workhorse, along with the 257.  It had one bad fall from about 60', 8-10 years ago, I was using a man lift to top all of the sweetgum trees in my yard prior to cutting them down, and I unfortunately was able to prove that gravity is indeed real.  Had to replace one part, but other than that, the saw continued to run great.  In hindsight I should have had a tether on it.

Plus 1 on that Tom! I will test fit the unbroken case half I have, replacing only half of a case is not always successful in that if the deck height on both halves is not a flat plane then no go. If no go do you want me to put the saw back together using the original case half? Do you still have the part of the case that was broken off?

A quick check, without the crankshaft installed looks like it will be a 'go'! So, what I propose is new bearing in your original flywheel half, and use my clutch side. What say you?

Tim, I don't believe that the broken case was the root cause of the "issue" that we are having with the saw, do you?  The saw was running fine for years after the drop.  If you believe that the broken case is the issue, give me a call and we can talk about it.  No sense replacing parts that don't need to be replaced.  I do not have the part that broke off, actually didn't even know that a part broke off until now.

Tom, no I do not think that the broken ear on the crankcase was the root cause of the problem. The problem was caused by a leaking seal on the clutch side of the engine. I had the crankcase half just sitting around so was just going to give it to you to replace the broken one. It would not be any extra work or labor charge  because the original case is already split to replace the main bearings and substituting the unbroken case half is no big deal. When I return ship your saw, you will get back all your original parts that were replaced along with the repaired saw.

If you would rather I put the saw back together with the original case half just let me know.

Tim, whatever you want to do, you're the expert, not me.  I'm following your lead, and just glad that I found you on this forum.  ;D

There is a small part 'travel limiter' that goes into the broken ear that helps with the anti vibration system of the saw. It is basically a threaded pin that engages a recess in the tank/handle and limits the amount of travel in the AV system.
