Looking at the spec sheet in the stickys here. 12,500 is max stock out of cut

I guess I could tune it for some higher RPM's but I think it would start to get lean by then.    Maybe with the different cylinder and new piston and ring it could use some breaking in.

I'm confused; are both cylinders Mahle or was the one on the saw an aftermarket item? Decos tended to come and go on this family of saws. Seemed kind of random to me. The last remaining OEM cylinder is the 46mm which is made by Husky in Sweden. It does have a deco. There were some Gilardoni jugs in the mix along with the closed port 55's that were Mahles, (I think).

I had a cheapo after market cylinder on the saw and then I found a used OEM cylinder on ebay from a Husq 51.   That cylinder turned out to be an exact match to the original one on my Husq 50 special.   That is the cylinder in the picture.   I then took off the aftermarket cylinder and put the OEM one on the saw.   The saw did run better with the OEM.

The Husqvarna 50 special came a with a two shoe clutch that seemed to slip easily.     So I found a 3 shoe clutch on ebay for a 51 or 55 that fit.   What a world of difference.     I can actually bear down some on the saw now.

I have taken the 50 special I rebuilt up to the mountains with me now 3 times and use it for limbing which is where all the cutting really happens.   Works out good because of the weight and it always starts easy.    Important when you have been cutting all day.
