If a CM can beat the 261 I have here it will be some kind of saw. It ran good today, getting stronger each day.

Art does yours have the original OEM carb untouched?  or is it oem that has it been drilled out or bore opened up or both to flow more or a another carb altogether?


Thanks Randy aka MM, thats what I was wondering about.

nope unless you did it , its pretty much a stock carb cause I was thinking you were going to be a bigger carb on it , but the saw is lighter than stock as it had just abit more metal removed in the ports, If I found a casting rid in the carb most likely I would of taken it out but thats about it

I never touched it, so its still stock then. I put the filter on when it came back and it has been on ever since. Not going to put the bigger carb on until this winter.

Chris made a 4.4 with the 365. My 261 and 2159 won there class. 357 got beat by Gordies 930. Head to head Gordie and myself are 3 wins each. I will get the times tomorrow from Chris. We raised $4200 for the Fire dept. Chris is the Chief, I am Deputy chief.

see that proves a point right there , I was hoping that I could get a 261 to run with Chris's 346 but was not 100% sure I could do that and still have the 261 be able to cut firewood , I guess its a good thing I did but I'm sure Chris is not to happy about it . The 930 should beat the 357 pretty easy as its alot bigger motor and on pipe like yours and Marcel built the 930 , The 357 does pretty good for what it is

I think the 261 cut 6 flat, 2159 5.6 and 980 5.75. I'd say the 261 tuned out more than ok. Got 4 cords blocked with it as a bonus.
