That would be a very costly project, with plating and redoing the porting - and there are larger bore cylinders that will fit. Often it will create a need for a different intake and carb though, and the top cover will have to be modified.

Are the cylinders deeply scored or do they just have aluminum transfer from the piston that got too hot? Most times you can fix the cylinder and just buy a piston.

There is topics on cleaning up scored cylinders here. By hand or with tools.  Most clean up.

I'm still doing by hand on cylinder clean ups, but going this way soon.  http://chainsawrepair.createaforum.com/stickys-of-how-to-basics/how-to-remove-aluminum-transfer-without-acid/msg29568/#msg29568
Just did 2-266 cyl's this way.  Pouring my acid out.  Works like a champ.  Recommend this method.
