Well so far it has but the saw has only a few hours on it (perhaps 2-3 tanks) and the deflector is still there but who knows what a year will show. IDK, but I think that the coarse thread in the sheet metal screws and vibration is part of the problem. McMaster Carr sells some fine threaded self tapping screws that may work better, they also a weird little threaded insert that uses a tool to lock it in a hole and you put a standard machine screw in the threaded insert. The inserts are cheap but the tool is not!

I got some larger diameter screws with grommets under the heads to give a little more tension on them while not having to tighten too much and pull the threads through the metal.  Seems to have worked for the moment.  I imagine I could get a small nut and bolt in there too, IDK, for now it seems OK.  Put it back together again and made some cuts and it is holding for the moment.  I like it, but I wish I had more wood out back.  :(  Had a couple rounds of junk wood, left over wind downed pine in the back of the yard.  Not the best video, but I didn't have a lot of time.  I'll get some better video and hopefully find some better wood out there tomorrow.  Here's what I got for now though.  ;D

Suppose I should have put what I was running in there. 18" .325 setup,  with a new out of the box WoodlandPro branded Carlton chain. Spur drive, have not replaced it, but need to. About 5 mins run time on it at the time of the video. Log is ~14".

I didn't go crazy,  this was a learning project. Exhaust is just about on the gasket, little less. I didn't do Al lot to transfers, there's pictures a page or two back showing where I left things.

Looks and sounds like it goes pretty good. Great job! Where do you think that the mods changed the performance?

Thank you, I think it came out pretty well. Gain wise the most probably came from opening the muffler,  truthfully. The new piston also, it seems a bit snappier than it did before. In the video I was pushing it pretty hard, which shows since I bogged it down a couple times. Definitely pulls harder than it did,  seems like a nice little saw. It's really light which is nice, and will make a sweet limbing saw. Hoping with some break in it loosens up some too.
