those events your talking about, I've just seen for the first time and know what your talking about. Grande Prairie.OP.choker
I'm wondering just how fast of a saw you would need.

It seems your doing more running/climbing than sawing and your cutting in uncomfortable positions. In a 30 second Obstacle pole race your using the saw for 5 seconds?
Wouldn't a hot gas woodsport and race chain work well.

Alky is just damn persnickety.
Jeff thanks for posting some good entertainment there! I wish I could be as computer savvy, but I have to admit I only learned to turn one on a couple of years ago :D
In the Grande Prairie Precision cut and the Obstacle pole buck events a light fast saw makes all the difference in the world. Sure it looks like a lot of running and climbing in the obstacle pole buck, but in the top 3 finishers it always comes down to the speed and quickness of the saw.
 In the precision cut its "all" speed and ergonomics of the saw.The 272XP with its excellent centered b/c and balance thanks to it's outboard clutch really excells in these 2 events. I did really well with a 630/670 Jonsered in these events back in the day.

No way would I use alky again, last resort maybe in my 125 YZ bikesaw. I would run the 272 on gas like you said with a good woods port.

Put a 16" 3/8 on the 268xp / 272xp topend saw today. Couldnt even take it for a  :-X test drive  :'(. Recoil was not engaging. Took apart put back together and still not engaging.

Ideas what to look at next?

Here is what I noticed today. Pawls work freely.  But when I tighten center starting pulley  bolt down   the  metal part of pulley can not reach the pawls. If I loosen center bolt the metal part of pulley has some play to come out some and catch the pawls to start saw.

Is this a sign of worn starter pulley or starter pawls?  I'm thinking starter pulley.


After starting I made some test cuts with 16" on the same wood the 346's were tested in yesterday.  ;D

I didnt know this and I do have the shorter pulley on it now.

Different housings as well you have to match the pulley with the right housing...

That explains it. Thanks.

 This is a 268xp with 272 topend. So I do have the right short pulley just worn out I guess. I almost most bought the longer one when I noticed something was different and wanted to know more.

There are 3 pulleys that fit this series saws.  PN: 501-5207-01 fits 162-61-266 10mm hole.  503-1024-02 fits 61-66-266-268-272 short tube (2 part ign. w/sm decal).  503-1024-05 fits (late model single coil w/big decal) 61-268-272 long tube. Also fits Jreds 625-630-670.  Don't know the Jred's well enough to include their numbers but the coil is the major determing factor on which pulley to use.

I pulled the pulley out of the 268SE XP  5031024-0 was on pulley. Center hole was 10.4mm  Does show some wear on the metal short tube catch area and is rounded off some.

Looked at coil and it is single.  small decal.

Dang I'm confusing myself here. The pulley I took off  5031024-0 the 2 stamped on dial, 268 for 1987 shows 5031024 03 on IPL.

What would be the safe one to buy? 02 or 03 or are they the same or what.  ???
