Thanks for the replies.

Option #3  ;)

I think I might hold out a little while and see what I can find, no need to get in a rush.
I wouldnt get so hung up on the 44.7mm oem v/s 44mm oem.  I found a used like new 44mm set on the last 026 I did and you wont notice a difference.  Your 024 super should be 44mm anyways.

Here is what I have found, I guess it is right.

024: 42mm bore, 30mm stroke, 41.6 cc
024S: 42mm bore, 32mm stroke, 44.3 cc
026: 44mm bore, 32mm stroke, 48.7 cc
MS260: 44.7bore, 32mm stroke, 50.2cc

So if I go from the 026 to MS260 I would gain a whopping 1.5cc, I never payed much attention to that. The MS261 is 3.75hp. I have seen were people say a 026 is 3.2 or 3.5. I have a 4 year old stihl catalog and the MS260 is 3.2 Where is the power coming from on the MS261?

44mm meteor piston http://northwoodsaw.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1384 . I'm not seeing a 44.7mm meteor  piston.
Meteor lists a 44.7 piston, 5th from the bottom.

used oem 44mm $60 and ship  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stihl-MS-260-MAHLE-Cylinder-Head-Jug-Piston-Kit-44-mm-OEM-MS260-026-1121-/200928425883?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2ec844779b

I looked at that one the other night, now I am giving the 44mm bore some more thought.

oem new 44.7mm kit $160 and ship  http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-OEM-STIHL-Chainsaw-44-7mm-Piston-Cylinder-026-MS-260-PRO-MS260-1121-020-1215-/350546037134?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item519e2c098e

I saw that one also. I think I would go over budget if I bought that one. I wonder if he would do any better on the price, he has 3.

used possible 44.7mm off 260 you need to ask.  $80   http://www.ebay.com/itm/stihl-oem-ms260-026-cylinder-and-piston-top-end-/230980503511?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35c782c7d7

They are a neat little saw but they aren't oak slayers .--oak limb slayers . ;D

I am only going to be using it on limbs. I want something that has some power for bigger stuff.

Also another question for you guys, Do I need a ring compressor or is there something else I could use? I have ring compressors but nothing that small.


I also need a chain for this saw. I am going to be using this saw for small stuff, like limbing.

What are you running?  DL gage etc?

16" bar
67 DL
.325 Pitch
.063 gauge

I like this one over the stihl version.   http://northwoodsaw.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=398

Can use your fingers,  tie strap, pop can cut up etc.


Chain I would get a stihl RSC for your needs.

Do you know what caused the other top end to get smoked? 

Better fix that before throwing another top end on it if seals etc.

I'll try that for the ring compressor.

I don't see a RSC on stihls website anymore. That is what is on the 660.

Yes I do. The previous owner was having problems with the saw not running right. His buddy took the card apart and it was dirty. He ran it a while and had the same problem. So he cleaned the carb and got a new gas can. He went to cut firewood and grabbed the wrong gas can, the one with regular gas in it. He bought a new 290 to replace this saw. The rings busted in it and wasted the cylinder.

 I was thinking about ordering it from weedeaterman. If it was a bigger more valuable saw I would go with something like that OEM KIT off ebay. Anyone have a coupon code for weedeaterman.
