Husky didn't retain a model with the 630 top end because they had the 262 in the line up.

Wasn't the 162SE discontinued well before the 262xp appearead mid 1989? I am quite sure it was.....

I work on lots of the saws that use the two piece ignition system. I personally own 4 or 5 of them and my BIL owns three. I have seen it happen both ways, but if you have NO spark it is usually the HT coil.
I have 12-15 2 pc. ign saws.  I've not seen a bad trigger it has always been the HT module.  133-246, 181-288 also use 2 pc.  IIRC trigger is same for all.  HT is diff.  I got a lot of the 61,630 ign systems should anyone need one.

Yes it was.  IIRC 630 came out when 162 was discontinued.  No 262 in Jonsered.

About that, as I remember it - but that likely was a coincidense, as I believe what really happened in the Husky line-up was that Husky replaced the 162 with the 266?

This isn't carved in stone though, it is just how it looks to me.

From my info the 162SE was discontinued between 1980 and '82. Last ad I have of the 162 is from Dec.1979 and in 1982 the 266 was introduced [I bought my first Jonsered 630 in 1982] . Only the Husqvarna 61 was advertised in 1982 as a 61cc saw.
Also found these interesting advertisement dates:
1982: 266, 61 Rancher
1978: 61 Rancher, 162SE
1977 : 162SE
1976: 162SG introduced.
1975: 163/263CD
1974: 163/263CD
1972 Jonsereds 621-S with first chain brake [introduced in U.S. Jan.1 1973]
1971 Husqvarna enters U.S and Canadian market with distributers in both countries.
1968 Jonsereds enters U.S. market.
1966 Husqvarna markets compact casual saw in Tacoma Washington.
1959 Husqvarna markets first chainsaw the A90.
1959 Partner is marketing in the U.S. the R11 and the X21 gear reduction chainsaws.

Very nice Jonsered score Roger.
-Aaron

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.

1981 the 266 was introduced on Market.
1987 the 268, 1990 the 272.

Thanks for the info Magnus.
The 272XP was Husqvarna's answer to the Stihl 044. I still own my 1988-89 044AV.
My "new" 1993 272XP is  non-decomp. When did the 272 get the decomp and when was it discontinued from the Swedish plant?

They could be delivered with or without decomp. It was up to the one ordering...

I think the last batch 272 was assembled pretty late as in '99 sometime.
Not sure how long it was available, but here you could get them up to '99, perhaps a year more.
The 272 stump grinder was a big seller....

All that adds up - except that I have never seen evidense (documents or statments) that confirms the 166 actually hit the market in North America (as the 166).    ???

That is OK. It will turn up eventually. The little info I have of it is provided by Husqvarna here.
