I hope the original, (and NLA), 268XP top end was actually bad when it was replaced with the AM kit. I've yet to see an AM kit that will run with an OEM without a lot of work, even if going up a notch displacement wise. Same applies to people replacing 48mm 365 top ends with AM kits. People get sucked in by all this "big bore" hype and toss out a perfectly good OEM kit for a chinese top end with .060 squish. Crazy. Then there's the obvious trade off in longevity.

No clue as I took it on trade twice over the years with same afm 272 top on it.  Came from VA first time traded in.

Lotta good saw pics, but the pic in the fridge looks even better. Some of those jars from TN even make their way up to the mountains up here. Supposed to have some vanilla bean coming from a guy who visits family in TN after I worked on his 2165 last week.

Husqvarna / Re: Husqvarna 570 saw in need of a carburetor

The carb is still available. Same unit is used on the 570, 575, and non auto-tune 576. It is pricy. Not every carb responds to a rebuild.

Two easy things to test for air leaks are the fuel line and the impulse line. Then spray some carb clean under the flywheel and behind the clutch while it's running to test the crank seals.

Germany 881 is official now in this dealer newsletter.
Stihl says that the 880 is sold out and that the successor will appear in autumn. 881 is mostly an evolution of the 880. Just like they did with the 460 to 461. Same bore and stroke like the 880 but with front fed transfers, added stratos -like a beefed up 462- and updated filter.

Exhaust side needs checked.  Pull muffler IMO

570 575 576 know for air leaks and burning them up.   http://chainsawrepair.createaforum.com/husqvarna/husky-576xp-rebuild/

I looked down the carb side not the muffler side yet.  Carb side looked good and top of piston looked good.

Update
Update
The pulse line was clear and blowing out when I pulled the rope.
With the saw running and I give it enough throttle the saw will start bogging when the lower butterfly starts to open and when you go WOT it starts blowing air out while it try something to bog down.
Is the saw low on compression? I tried to perform a compression test but it would not pump up any pressure on the tester gauge.... am I missing something?

Made a short video idling for new owner. Saw is SOLD going into a collection. 

New owner going to get the OEM recoil and carb himself.  Saves me the hunt.
