MS 271 Cylinder Piston Kit
« on: September 20, 2018, 01:36:59 pm »
1st post, I somehow failed to add oil to my 2 cycle gas can and destroyed my new MS 271 cylinder and piston.  :-\

The local Stihl dealer wants about $300 to replace the cylinder and piston, seems excessive.

I  am able to find an aftermarket piston for about $30 bucks, but not a cylinder.

I am seeing a lot of aftermarket cylinder piston kits for many other models in the $40 range, all with great reviews.

Anyone know where I can get a cylinder to fit this MS 271?

On one site it looked like the MS 261 and MS 271 used the same cylinder, is this true?

Cheer,
-Rob

261 and 271 cylinder not the same.

271 can be taken up to the bigger bore 291. Share same chassis.

159 for p+c and crank from new saw. Seller is fish from KY and honest seller.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Stihl-MS271-Piston-w-Cylinder-crankshaft-OEM-off-New-Saw-non-EZ-Start-version/192663263118?hash=item2cdba0178e:g:yhAAAOSwXY5ZV0sE:sc:USPSPriority!44833!US!-1
