I forgot to ask two things. 1. What size of allen wrench and length of do I need to remove and install the cylinder on it.  2. What rpm should I set it at for break in..


Thanks
Jason

32:1 synthetic mix oil, premium nonE fuel.  I run mine like I stole it.  Same way we used to do our motors when we used to dirt track.  Everybody has their own method some do heat cycles, some do light load,  etc.  Here is how I've done it for over 50 yrs.

The cylinder bolts are 4mm M5 hex cap screws, torque spec is 14NM. Harbor Freight sells a set of 3/8 metric long reach allens on the cheap.

I made a Mistake the cylinder bolts are NOT 4mm/m5 they are 5mm/M6x25mm. Not to worry though, the HF set has the correct size. The only Husqvarna saws that will throw you a curve are the 272s/288s and a couple others that use 3/16.
