Yes, a 066/660 topend can be installed on a 064.  As already mentioned, you have to slot the holes in the 066 cylinder base.  Use the 064 cylinder gasket as a template.  Enlarging the holes in the case to 6mm is a good idea, but is not required.  It's easy enough to do.


Think I just watched a video on YouTube done by you....same username?

Spent almost an hour before being called to dinner by the wife, and was not able to get the muffler off this saw. Even sprayed the WD40 onto them rusted pieces!  Re sprayed them and left it sitting so that the WD might make its way to whatever is holding them in place?

First guess is this saw has never been apart?
If they don't let go, any tips to keep from breaking stuff?

Run the saw for a minute and then break the bolts loose if you don't want to use a small torch to heat it up.

Heat is definitely your friend when working with saws.  It makes getting the bearings and cranks into and out of the cases manageable.  If you dont want to use a torch, you can use a heat gun, hair dryer or even a flood lamp. 

Enjoyed reading through your site.  Great looking blanks and was impressed with your acrylic work too.

Thanks, was wondering what everyone used when the saw was disassembled for any length of time as far as heat goes(not like you could start it up and let it 'self-generate' heat).

And thanks for looking through the website....sometimes a fella gets lucky finding local timber.  The Acrylics is all the wife, she has the timing and eye for color combos!

If it were me I would just replace the piston (if needed) and rings. The 64 is a great saw and I don't know if you can feel a power difference by adding the 66 top end. So I don't think its worth the extra work. I have owned both BTW. So I'm not just making assumptions.

Has anyone used any of the mako cylinder kits?  Anyone done any port work on the mako kit?  4 years ago I moved the base screws out & opened them up to 6mm.  Cut 10-15 cord a year with the saw & then the aftermarket piston gave up the ghost, so I am ready for a different top end & cylinder.
