I've seen 246s before..............but not a 246XP.  Dunno if there's any difference between a 246 and a 246XP.  Grabbed this pic from elsewhere.  Would love to have the saw............but the $ ain't there.....

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

I haven't heard of the 246xp before either - I assume the xp designation must have been added very late in the Production run? It would be very interesting to see how the cylinder of that saw is.... ;D

We learn as we live!   ;D

That 246XPG must be a rare bird, at least in the US.

The seller of the 246XP that I mentioned earlier now sez that the MN/SN tag has "242XP" on it.  Strange.  Wonder where that 246XP starter cover decal came from....

Unicorn?  husky 246xp Makes me wonder IF someone isnt making DECALS?  Placement on the AF cover seems off. Who knows oh well. Had fun searching and drinking coffee.
