Let us or PM me if you like after comparing the 036 365SP 262xp. I wonder if you will come away with the same thoughts I did.  ::)

Would it be ok to use a piece of greased printer paper for a cylinder base gasket? I need a gasket .005 thick to set my squish to .021 on my 262. Without the gasket squish is at .016. The gasket alone reads .034. So that means squish with the gasket would have been at .050. :o

The 262XP had a good rep right from day one, starting around 1989. The one of the very first saws on the market with air injection and spring anti vibe, a design Stihl was forced to change to almost 18 yrs later with the 441.

I got this 262XP saw in today VERY clean saw serial number 2190203 which would put it at 1992, 19th week.
It has no provision for a decompression valve which tells me it was made between 1990-03 and 1992-10. IIRC when you look at the spec dates (e.g.1992-10 indicates October 1992). If that be true then the saw was introduced in March 1990 and the spec was changed in March of 1991 and ran through October 1992. It was changed again in November 1992. In November of 1992 is when Husqvarna switched to the HDA-120 carb.

I took the top cover off and discovered that the saw has an HDA-87 carb! Which I believe stands to reason because 19th week translates to just before the middle of April 1992.

So here is what I am trying to figure out, I cannot tell if the cylinder is marked 'Mahle', I cannot find markings on it at all. There are some black paint markings on top of the cylinder but I cannot figure out what they indicate. I did pull the plug and have a look inside, piston is definitely a flat top.

Camera is charging, I will post some pictures later in the day.

More pictures

I will take it apart some and get some more pics. Look closely at the black tag, not sure I have ever seen one like this. Don't think the saw is a fake but who knows

The non-decomp cylinders on the early 262xps are KolbenScmidt ones. Those are quite discretely marked, with a K and a S superinposed on top of each other.

I believe the KS top end and HDA-87 was the best combination they used on those saws.

The earliest 262xp dating I have seen (a picture of) is 1989 week 26.

Btw, I am not a "262xp guy", I just happen to know a few things about them.

That saw looks extremely nice, and it looks legit to me! ;D

Hopefully the attachment works..... (Edit - it didn't, the file was too large ::))
