Husqvarna 262XP 262 261
« Reply #20 on: December 03, 2013, 03:36:49 pm »
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.
