The later models were metal and didn't have the tang or slot in the AV mt. cover.  Some guys would cut the tang off so it would fit.

If memory serves, the clutch covers were changed from plastic to magnesium some time around 1997.

The 261's all had a metal CC no tang.

That adds up!

In my experience cutting the tabs off the plastic covers allows them to vibrate too much and would eventually crack the covers. Sort of like speed cracks on a Corvette.

All the 261s I have converted o 262s had mag CCs.

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

Nothing to be sorry about - my comment was for info, nothing else!  ;D

The tabs made it easy to tell how much use a 262 or 254 had. With alot of hours they would wear thru the case. Lots of guys tried to sell "low hour" saws, but the case told another story.
