Sorry guys posted some bad info on the Solo 665 carb.  It's a Walbro HD-43A 16.67 venturi not a HD-48.  I had been looking @ a bunch of carbs trying to find something that would replace/work on a 5100 Dolmar got my info mixed up.  Did learn the Zama C3M EL8A from a 1998 Husky 365 is 17mm that's where I got the 17 from.  Was looking @ these carbs to see if I could get one of them to work on the 5100 without too much trouble.  As we all know it can be made to fit/work LOL.

On FHC one of the members who bought one of the 665s ran his (not yet broken in) 665 against a ported HVA 562XP. Only one run was a fair comparison due to knots, the box stock 665 appeared to outrun the ported 562XP by .4 of a second.

We will see when Kevin, Dexter and the rest of the boys have a go later in the month.

Kevin posted the video here too...under the 562xp thread and also the timed cut thread.

I knew the Solo would out run a stock 562, pretty surprised on the ported one tho...

To be honest, I was surprised too, sometimes 'ported' may not always equate to 'faster or better'. Perhaps a good omen for the last of the 665s.

Next 2 weekends I have family commitments. So hopefully 24th or after.  If not no biggie on my end.

I have had so many inquiries about the availability of any Solos that were not already sold; that last night I asked Randy to send one of the saws I sent to him to be ported back. He still has the one he purchased, so I believe he will still be porting at least one for all to see.

I was thinking Labor day weekend or after. I have worked 20 days straight now and probably won't get a day off till next weekend.  But would like to do it after that..

I have been super impressed with the stock 665 as well. I will be making another video of a stock 562xp,  my stock 665, and also my ported MS 362C-M.  All with new off the loop RS chain.
