Much better, but there still is room for larger picture files.  ;)

Click on them they get much bigger. There are black marks on top of the cylinder, anyone recognize them.

Surely they do, but they are getting unclear when blown up much more than that.  ;)

I don't know what the black marks means.

Was there black rubber tabs under the cylinder cover by chance?  Marked on top of cylinder?

No rubber bumpers under the cover.

A nice trick when rebuilding these saws is to use the thinner 1mm gasket, part number 503704801. Nice compression! It's actually the gasket specified for the 254 I believe. There was even an earlier .7mm gasket that is NLA. Can't simply delete the gasket and substitute 3-bond on all saws in this family. Can't do it on the 254, but OK on the 257. Not sure on a 262, but I suspect not. 261's came with a 2mm gasket, and I think that might also be the case for all of the 262's but I can't verify from home tonight.

It's a bit confusing as both gaskets appear on different IPL's Can't say whether or not it's a year by year deal or different markets. Most IPL's up until 1998 show the thicker one, but in 1999 the 262 is shown with the thin gasket. 254 IPL's are also a mixed bag. 1994 shows the thick gasket, 1998 shows the thinner one.

Suffice to say that there are 2 gaskets currently available for these saws. I have both in stock and the one I mentioned as being the way to go is certainly thinner than the other.

503704801 is the thin gasket.

503704802 is the thicker one.

Given the mfg date on the saw I checked on parts tree. The spare parts list shows the saw used 501861902 which is replaced by 503704802. S60 you are correct that the thin is still available as 50370480.

So I am wondering what the specs were on the original 501861902 part. The part is also listed for Electrolux and Poulan but does not show that it was replaced by the 503 70 48-02 however that doesn't mean that if you ordered the 19-02 part you would not get the 48-02 part!

503704802 is the thicker one.

Ordered and received both gaskets, here is some additional info. I measured the compressed thickness of both gaskets:
503704802 is the thicker one and is 0.0363
503704801 is the thin gasket and is 0.0240
The original number 501861902 superseded to 503704802
