I read that too. He said he stopped taking his blood thinner or something like that and one side got blocked up.  Said he was doing fine now and back on the meds.

We got to take our meds as we get older. Our body's aint young anymore.

Well I found my muriatic acid today and I have a Oem piston on order.   As soon as I get time and some warm weather I will start cleaning up the cylinder.

I worked on the cylinder for about 45 minutes today.   The cylinder is too far gone and will look for something else.   Right above the exhaust port the plating is pitted real bad.   That is one thing I like about the acid is it will not hide any bad spots but expose them.   There is also some vertical grooves that I do not think will come out.    But once I saw the pitting I stopped doing any more work or else that cylinder would look like brand new.


I messed up on my before pic and thought I had a good one.   The others turned out ok though.

Well I ended up buying a Hyway cylinder and a meteor Piston with caber rings.    I checked the squish without a base gasket and found it at .020".
The piston looked pretty nice but the cylinder porting is just so so.   The nikasil plating looked good on the cylinder.   I tried to match the ports to the OEM cylinder I have here.   This is when I wished I had a angle head for the foredom.    The upper transfer ports were the only ones I did not touch because I really do not have the tooling for messing with them.   I did make sure I matched the rubber intake boot to the cylinder intake port and the same for the exhaust.
They were a lot smaller then the OEM cylinder.

   I ran the saw today and I have to say it does run good and for a less expensive way to go I do not have any complaints right now.    The saw is running very good right now and seems to have plenty of torque in the cut.    Time will tell.
