Spike60 isn't posting here?
It is not in my books here, but they are missing a lot of stuff from '90 and up.
At the time this was done I was at a service shop doing this. I still have contact with this guy and will see if he remembers it.
I had this up in discussion with a former Husqvarna developer as well a couple years ago, I see if I find the notes.

I have had in many 254's with double gaskets here..

Magnus, I sent Spike60 a Private Message asking if he could take a look on the dealer network to see if he could find it. What I posted was his response.

This from Spike60 on double base gaskets on the 261 262!

Quote
Took a look but cannot find any such SB. Only 262 item concerning the base gasket was the change from the .7mm to 1mm gasket in 1991.

I am not surpriced, as it didn't really make any sense in the first place....  :)

Not to you that don't run saws, but it made a world of difference in the one I had and ran! I imagine it is hard to try out double gaskets in a computer IPL.
That said, not all do better with it. As said I had many here with double gaskets. Some do better with it, others not. I don't have them either, not all of the ones that has been here, but one I think is here some were with double gaskets. I see if I find it.

The later ones do well with or without gasket, not much differance in wood. The older ones I tried run without do better with gasket when tested in wood.

It should also be pointed out that not all of the older service bulletins are available in the digital libraries that we have access to. I recently got my hands on some old Jonsered books from a dealer that closed several years ago. There are a lot of SB's in those books that cannot be found on the corporate site.

Wouldn't it be nice if there was someone who had nothing better to do than to scan all those and put them on the web?

I spent many hrs scanning so far and will do more when I get the urge, I hope others will do the same.

And there is even more info that you get In US that we didn't here and vice versa.

Tech support in late 80's could send memo's too to dealers that never showed up on any papers as well as what was said learned in the yearly tech meetings.

Just missed a 262xp yesterday for 65. Looked nice. Owner said once warmed up wouldnt run right. Figured seals or low psi. 
I was just going to go though it to sell anyways. Not into the 262.

See who says they found a cheap 262 online ;)  I have a good idea since it was 1hr 45mins north west.

Was the HDA-87 the carb everyone seems to want on a 262?
