They are still doing good cylinders. http://www.kspg.com/en/divisions/hardparts/ks-kolbenschmidt/

Gilardoni, Mahle was more Popular on Jonsered/Husqvarna. Kolbenshmidt made cylinders for Stihl and after market ones for those built here, but I don't think I have seen it on Husqvarna saws from here from factory.
Jonsered and Partner had KS cylinders from time to time.

All the non-decomp 262xp cylinders I have seen or heard of have been KS, and a lot of 254xp cylinders from the early 1990s as well.  ;)

Their "logo" is real easy to not notise, as it is quite discrete....

I could have missed it, but i have many of them here, hard to believe I have not noticed it.
How many have you actually seen?

At least halv a dozen (pictures on forums) + several statements, and my brothers early 262xp has a KS as well. Actually, I have never seen or heard of a non-decomp 262xp that didn't have a KS cylinder. Many consider those cylinders better than the later decomp Mahle ones, as they have a smaller combustion chamber.
What I doubt at this point, is the existense of 262 Gilardoni cylinders, as I have never seen a picture of one, or heard of one - but maybe you have one in your vast Collection?

Different Husqvarna saw series (although one from a similar time period)..................but all the earlier non-decomp 288XP cylinders that I've seen (those without a boss cast into them for the comp release valve) have been KS cylinders.  The KS cylinder that I used to build a 288XP last year was very high quality, and made for a very strong running 288XP.

The comp release 288XP cylinders (and those with bosses that haven't been machined) that I've seen have been Mahle.

Yes, but the background is of course not blue on the cylinders and pistons!  ;D

This will be interesting. The last 5 i had here all were Mahle and with decomp.
I have two or three here in collection, I think they all have decomp too. I will check what they have.
I have more cylinders in the boxes I will try to find...

I know there was Gilardoni cylinders for 262, aftermarket ones. Not sure who sold them though, Likly not HVA...
I put on a couple of them and you could tell they were different from color and it caught my attension.

Magnus, my 262 KS cylinder is a darker grey than the other 262s I have. They all have Mahle. I have never seen a Gilardoni cylinder for a 262, although that does not mean there aren't any!

Looking for a 262xp 3 shoe clutch if anyone has one thy would like to sell!

I put the cylinder #1 on this evening and it works great. The now has a muffler that is on tight.  Also I looked at that link that was posted in this thread and I could not find the #'s for the cylinder I removed.     Gilardoni  5034479

This was a 266 right? With Gilardoni  5034479?

If so I add it to list!

I noted in list the 262 has a Gilardoni A 166 1B+ cylinder. If I have it still I snap a pic.

Anyone have the KS number for 262 so we can add it to list?

Anyone else have anything to add to list, post in thread or send it to me, I put it in.
It is a great tool to have when you stumble on a box of cylinders you don't know what they are for.
