Huztl wants $59 on Ebay

Thats over the 50-60 budget for saw he allowed.   He has a new MS261 to use so he is not worried.

So I would say it will run till it poops.

Had 140psi still. 

So Jim did you check your 025 and was rock solid there like we thought?

I really like the MS 250 I had a 025 also but sold it

Motors are not hard to work



That is a extra motor I got from a tree service that ran a MS 250 over with the service truck I've had that motor now three years and haven't used it

That's why I own two MS 250



I've changed the carbs to WT215 on both and you can feel the differences

I have a 025 and a MS250 I use for limbing situations.

I tend to like the 025 a little better.

They are .325 X .063.

The 025 has RS chain and the MS 250 has RM chain.

They both have twin needle carbs and muffler mods.

One of my MS 250 I have a Carlton skip chain (.325) kinda dangerous but for bucking it is sweet but not for limbing

Motor runs cuts great.  Have you ever seen a 025 etc plastic crankcase wear out? Something has to be worn to create that much play.

My 025 and MS250 were solid as a rock

I have never worked on one of these before but is there some kind of steel bushing that is in the plastic where the crankcase bolts go through?   Are the bushings there and not missing?

Yes there are 4 metal bushings molded in the case. Can't figure how the engine moves around when the bolts are tight. For the bolt pull the engine down into the case and hold it tight.

I think Roger may be on to something with the bushings in the case. Are the bushings moving around in the case? The bolts could be tight against the bushings but the bushings themselves may be moving in the plastic case. With age and exposure to UV some plastics shrink, like old 192Ts where the press fit oil pump will not stay in position in the case. I don't mean get tighter around something but shrink away from press fit hardware.

Yes, I have had to tap out those bushings on an older saw, and grind a little off of the top.
