Just guessing since learning from this thread.  Maybe recoil was replaced and it isnt a lite 288?  Dont look like a HD air filter type top though.  Soooo? Lite with that front AV?







They made more standard 288's with low tops than with the HD high top. The HD top was an option so just because it's a low top doesn't mean it's a lite.

If any of the 4 rear mounts are springs or if it has the front rubber mounts are there than it was probably a lite and someone added the large front spring.

My experience with old saws is there could have been a lot of things changed as long as they fit.

I have a 371 and not that it matters but there is a 372 cylinder on it and it says 372 on the starter. The clutch cover is a 371 with the inboard chain adjuster and the serial plate says it was originally a 371. Runs as good as a new one.

I have a 1991 Stihl 025. The only thing 1991 about it is the cylinder and crankshaft. Most everything else is mostly MS250 era stuff. Runs as good as a new one too.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

Be all that you can be . . .
