Yes, but the basic design is from the mid 1970s (162SE and 166SE)... :)

Hey guys I just got back from a out of town job run. Thanks for posting the pics Kevin, yes I can get that saw for $300 thats all the old fellow wants for it. The saw was passed down to him from his deceased brother inlaw who never had a chance to use the saw.
Its almost too nice to use for work getting  it dirty seeing it can be an excellent collector saw. My saws are used  to their full capacity. But I can keep this one on my shelf for only $300.
I think of the 272XP as a factory big bore 268XP with a few extra improvements, with its outboard clutch I think of it as a super handling oversized 346XP.

Redneck crankcase splitter (person with time). Having time on my hands from having walking pneumonia for 6th day.  Breathing good enough  to get it apart WITHOUT the $55 + $10 shipping oem crankcase splitter. Still going to break down and get one some day. Just rednecking it and no homemade splitter made either.  8)

365 special crankcase tag.  ;)

Could somebody give me some redneck tricks for getting the old crank bearings out of the case? Hopefully someone has a trick that is easier then the way I  do it.

I just press them out with my vise and 2 sockets. Works great. Have pressed them in with it also.

I never thought of  using a  vise.

I just changed them out. Heat oven to 200 degrees. Put both halves in. Pull one out and used socket to drive out. Put back in oven after cleaned up. Pull other one out drive out with socket. Put back in and pull the first one out and use socket to drive the new bearing in. Same thing on next one.


Will have to try the vise method sometime. Thanks for slick trick.

Its been many years since I had to change out a bottom end but I did just like Art does.... vise and sockets.. Didn't even use heat or cold. I still have the original flywheel/ case puller that came with one of my Jonsereds I bought back in the mid 1970s. Came with the saw because of the routine maintenence the saw needed with its poiints [about every 6 mths of 8 hr a day logging.]

No. Nothing against doing it, just uses up time.
