Get a 250 motor and put it in it it fit's right in  ;D

Good point, I always sold the whole engine so I wasn't thinking about the crank, good catch!

Also it is a tight fit to get the crank threw the hole near the oil pump

Don't know but is a 230 (at least a little upgrade) a direct bolt on?

On the other hand we have aftermarket guys here who can supply more or less the whole 250 engine with new bearings for around 120€! If the saw is running in a homeowner setting I would have no fear of using a kit like that.

The 230 and 250 share the same crankshaft
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

The crankcase is the same part number for all 3, so the full block interchanges nicely.

A member posted here a month or two ago that he has a used 250 engine complete for sale. His user name is bloodontheice. He is a stand up guy. Have got some stuff from him before with no problems. Pm him to see if he still has it. If you are interested
