This one cleans up in the cut pretty good, noticeable to ear.



I remember that 1 when it went FS. Thats Chris.

Does show fat 4 stroking to cleaning up real good.  8)

Yeah it is on my 4 cube shelf now :)

The 266 has a flattop piston and external boost ports.

Pop up was in the 357 work saw.

Seems the recent trend to to leave piston flat and cut squish bad. I just did a pop up / machined base on a 50cc oem 346 jug and am quite impressed. Went kind of mild, didn't touch the ports except to blend/match the lowers to the case and same with the exhaust to the muffler. The comp is only 165 with a half tank through it. Noticeably stronger than stock!

I took .030" off the base and .015" off the piston. Is there a good number guys are machining off the base and piston on the 346 & 357?

My 346's 357 372 were all pop ups. 1 084 was pop up, 1 084 stock piston, 1 I dont remember, my 066 was stock piston, other 066 I dont rem, my 5000's partner 1 was pop up,  other might have been  too, 5000 redmax ?, 1 166 race was stock oem piston, other 166 dont rem, 3120 flat, 026 pop up, 262 dont rem, 7900 pop up.

When I broke away from ported saws. I wanted saws that you could slap a oem piston in. So the cutting squish and base way would work for me if I were to ever want another.

I just didnt want to depend on anyone for pop up pistons anymore. Being I didnt have the tools to do them right.

I can cut my own pop ups & bases, but don't have to tooling to cut the squish band. I also don't have the tools to grind the upper transfers. So I guess I'll mess with pop ups for a bit. Thanks!

I know what I would be doing then. Have fun playing. 

What I liked about Dan Henry Dozerdan ported saws is that I could still use oem base gaskets with his cut cylinder bases and pop pistons.

I've cut mine to run a base gasket. Don't like to use the liquid sealer anymore!

Have never heard anything bad about a Dozerdan saw!
