Made a short video idling for new owner. Saw is SOLD going into a collection. 

New owner going to get the OEM recoil and carb himself.  Saves me the hunt.

Lotta good saw pics, but the pic in the fridge looks even better. Some of those jars from TN even make their way up to the mountains up here. Supposed to have some vanilla bean coming from a guy who visits family in TN after I worked on his 2165 last week.

I hope the original, (and NLA), 268XP top end was actually bad when it was replaced with the AM kit. I've yet to see an AM kit that will run with an OEM without a lot of work, even if going up a notch displacement wise. Same applies to people replacing 48mm 365 top ends with AM kits. People get sucked in by all this "big bore" hype and toss out a perfectly good OEM kit for a chinese top end with .060 squish. Crazy. Then there's the obvious trade off in longevity.

No clue as I took it on trade twice over the years with same afm 272 top on it.  Came from VA first time traded in.
