The Meteor kits from Greece or Israel take a month to arrive.

Were do you order them from?
Distributer/producer or E-bay seller?

I was referring to the two guys on Ebay.

Hello, thought I would give an update on the saw. I received all the parts and installed them. started with a new 50mm meteor piston with a single caber ring. I made a scotchbrite flap wheel hone using a piece of pvc as a mandrel and ran a little oil in it while cleaning the cylinder, this really worked good to clean up the cylinder .i hand sanded the cylinder with a 600 grit wet/dry and oil, the nikisil is so hard I don't think this did anything. installed a new base gasket, rebuilt the carb, replaced the fuel line and filter. now i'm adding another port in the muffler and then it's run time! I've seen different methods of attaching the new shroud on the muffler. I used a thread setter to install to 5mm inserts in the muffler, hopefully this will allow easy removal for cleaning the screen later on. I do have a question on initial break in. do I need to baby it or put it in wood and tune? what method has worked best for you? any help or opinion is appreciated.

I just tune them a little on the rich side. I don't do any buried cuts for a while.

You did a good job on that muffler.

say what... ears are still ringing! thanks. went out and ran it for about 45 min while I adjusted the carb and made a few cuts. I noticed that it comes up in rpm fast and has a good torque band. so far so good, i'll run it more when the darn wind quits whipping....with ear protection!

Nice.

(I used a thread setter to install to 5mm inserts in the muffler)
Can you show how those  are done and what they look like before and how do they stay in?

I have read about a thread rivet insert, but never tried those.  http://www.rivetsinstock.com/rivet-nuts-threaded-inserts.html

I just started riveting permanently them because I dont use screens and the self thread screws always seem to back out on me.

Just looking at others ways too. 

Thanks,
Kevin

hey Kevin, i don't currently have any pics of the tool.I used a tool from work but if you search Marson thread setter....that's what I used. you simply drill the correct size hole and it installs just like a rivet, the inside folds over and holds similar to a standard rivet. I used a 5mm thread insert and drilled a 9/32 hole. I also put anti-seize on the bolts prior to installing, that way taking apart later will be a breeze.
