IIRC, the 272 jug is like the 268. I have a 272 jug in the shop. If you would like I can take a picture and post it.

that would be great(with the plug in it). with the SE cover on the 268 the spark plug boot is right on the cover.the XP cover clears the boot

I have a 272XP and 268XP in the shop now (a good friend just found a 300th anniv 268XP for me...........I'm stoked). 

If I remember...........I'll shoot a pic or two of them together with the covers off tomorrow.  IIRC the jugs look just about identical on the outside, aside from the comp release on the 1996 272XP and no decomp on the 1989 268XP.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.
