Thanks, that picture was the main point!    ;)

It shows the important parts of the serial number, and the configuration of the tags.

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. .....


The first IPL I can find, that show a cylinder with a decomp, is the 1994-06 one. That doesn't mean that the change happened exactly then though  - as IPLs are about replacement parts, and not always what was in the production saws ....

Thank you guys the picture from Niko answered the questions I had about the tags.

I found the saw in CL from a neighboring state and bought it. No drama, probably paid way too much but I have always wanted an early one to fill my collection.

Shep I did not understand the comment about the tab on the clutch cover.

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

Sorry Niko, did not intend to offend but you DO know a few things about them and that was what I was after!

As Niko was saying, Shep is talking about the rubber tab that hangs down off the rear of the clutch cover to protect the tank.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

The clutch cover looks like it has the tab on the rear that goes inside the AV mt cover.  You have to insert tab in it then fold the clutch cover on over the studs.  Used same clutch cover on 254's too.

Mine was like that and never thought anything about it. Just figured it was the design they had.

Just trying to learn here. This is how all the covers I have seen has been.  Now I have heard of another cover but have never saw one.
