Copy and paste  ;)

The 026 P&C will bolt on 024.  There are 2 cranks in 024.  One has non caged rod brg. (old AV model I think). Late model has caged rod brg. (AV Wood Boss) it's good to go for 026.  One prob. converting is 024 cylinder cover won't work.  024 cyl is shorter ( has flat top) 026 cyl. has vertical cooling fins on top of cyl. (taller).  I converted one a couple of years ago.  I changed the 024 cyl cover, AF cover and AF to 026.  026 has a bigger AF.  There are two different 026 AF style depends on fuel tank vent.  You'll probably need the old style 026 AF.
Al just do a little "Al magic" to the 024 and she would be OK as an 024.  I wouldn't do it again unless I had a bunch of 026 parts.  I wound up with way too many dollars in it.  After buying all the stuff I needed to convert.  I'd do a WP one the 024 cyl. and call it good.

Al,  I did a reply on the other site (Competition Saws) with what I knew about 024's. Too much to retype.

Yeah after thinking it over I'll just use it for a light duty saw and call it a day .For the 50 bucks I have in it I certainly didn't hurt myself by buying it .

Usually for a lot of limbing I either use an old s-25 Poulan or one of the 200T's .This I think might work better .

My guess is they have it tuned lean .A seal out would have cooked it like a  turkey which it isn't .Probabley some 3M green abrasive and kerosine will polish it up nicely and a set of seals just to be on the safe side .After market seals for that thing are only about 5 bucks a pop from Norwood .

I would have got on it except at the moment I'm dodging rain drops and fighting with a new screen door which seems to be winning at the moment .

I have a 026 PRO with a flat top cover (1999) that has a PRO cylinder with the later high fins filed off so the cover would fit.

The PRO cylinder had a compression release whereas the others were not drilled and tapped for the CR.

It is nice for limbing

It's a wood boss so it will fit in the 3 cube . ;D

I forgot exactly how it went ,but it was a pile of parts in boxes ,lots of them .

Tom my little bud in the tree biz experianced some theft losses and ran out of saws to conduct business .Early it the season and he was broke as a church mouse .

I revived the 028 plus the 034/036 you ended up with plus a 700 Mac .In addition my souped up 038 Mag and one of the 200T's got him through until some money came rolling in .

In addition to those mentioned was another 038 Mag I'd nurse maided for ten years plus a 281 Huskie which are now both mine . ;D

A little up date on this little thing .My curiosity got the best of me so about a half hour ago I fired it up .No muffler because the dealer pulled it to examine the cylinder .Well it idled with no muffler so that tells me the carb is not set lean .

I made a cut with it and considering it had a well worn guard chain it did pretty good . So this is my conclusion . I imagine someone sent the saw to the shop for a chain grind and tune up .They found a slightly abraided cylinder and advised the owner who bought a new saw  .

Due to the fact it has one of those long tie strap type guard chains and the chain was machine ground it did not come from a more professional user .Those chains cut terrible when new and worse as the cutters wear down .

I'd imagine given the choice of a rebuild that with new parts and labor at 65 bucks an hour would equal what the saw cost new the guy opted to buy a new one .It isn't neccessarily the dealer steered him wrong because it could have died on the vine given enough time .

I think I'm just going to peel it down to the bones and buff it up and use it as it is without too much soup .For a little pup it doesn't do bad at all .First thing to go is that freakin guard chain .
