He sent me some pics last night of the 170CD KAS tagged saw. With top cover off.

Whats up with that small air filter? Havent had a saw in with that yet.

Magnus told me what KAS stood for when I ask about that.

Never seen one either Kevin. Not in any of my old musty books, which do go back to the 70's. I do have a theory though, cause we've seen something like this before.

The rest of that saw is consistant with the early 162's, such as the cylinder mounted stud for the top cover nut. So the saw itself is not remarkable. 162's came out about 1978 and this was also the time when Husky was finishing up the model runs of saws in what we'd call the "100" series and the beginning of the "200" series saws. Some saws overlapped this period such as 154/254, 181/281. And it wasn't just 100 vs 200, but there was an effort to make the next 2 digits more accurately reflect the displacement. My theory/guess is that the 162SE was originally destined to be named the 170, but was renamed 162 before being released. So, that must be a rare first run saw in the pics.

A very similar thing happened a few years later with the switch from "SE" to "XP", with SE on the ID plate and XP everywhere else. They made a ton of saws that way, and we've all seen them. But that 170 is a new one for me.
