Re: 272 cylinder on a 254?
« on: February 24, 2014, 02:13:20 pm »
@KRL....."..The 272 cylinder also has a spigot or flanged base that fits down into the crankcase, the 254 and the rest of the family use flat based cylinders..."

I've just pulled the cylinder off the 254 I bought and it has a spigot flanged base, the cylinder extends about 6mm into the crank case.  Is it possible that it is not a 254 cylinder?  The only numbers I can find on it are 45 ZN7 W2,  cast onto the edge of the mounting flange (with MSHLE cast on the opposite side).  This saw may be a mongrel. It has the wrong clutch cover. I'll make a separate post about that.

Cheers,
Gregg
