The Husky 261 with its dished piston (vs the 262XP with the flat top piston) was/is also easy to upgrade.  It does also have a different clutch and sometimes a different carb (depending on the year of manufacture)......................but the piston change is where the lion's share of the difference lies.
The muffler also is important, there is a major difference between the 262xp and 261 there.

Another very easy thing to change.

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.
