150 is almost 180. That's pretty close to what it should be.

Put a DP muffler cover set up on a 046  guy that said his dad bought new in 1994.  He got it with bad piston not running and redid it.

Also put a HD2 air filter, switched to KL200 40:1 and tuned with a 16" in the ash log.  Fun fun let'er rip potato chip.  8)

So the MS 460 that I bought from AClarke about 5 years ago started running funny on me.    I started to take it apart and found the cylinder was loose.   So I tightened it back up and it seem to be alright and then started running funny again.   So I replaced the crank seals and still running funny.   So yesterday I pulled the cylinder off and removed the base gasket.   Squish was at .022".    This was a woods ported saw and it gave me a chance to check out the porting. 
I will say someone did some nice work it.   Nothing fancy but some nice woods porting.   I like what I saw.   Put it back together yesterday and ran it today.   The base gasket must of had a leak because all back to normal, but I feel the compression difference now.    Nice work Adam even if it is 5 years later.
Thanks.

That 046 D cylinder made it run like they should. Stronger with 24" buried then my 444 now.

If I hadnt had owned both the 444 and 466 I wouldnt even known there was something lacking in the 466's.


Some horrible looking ports in the FT 466 cylinder. Surprised they run as good as they do.
