rsf full skip
For sure that is a BIG cookie!
Yes sir. For years I cut stuff like that with my 026, then I got a 440 magnum and threw away the 20" bar for the 026.
359 20" bar oregon full chisel full skip.
man i have cad pretty bad, just a few months ago i wouldnt have thought id be posting vids and looking for burnt up saws on craigs list and ebay.
ive been up for about an hour looking for a 100 dollar 046 0r 460 that i can rebuild and turn into runner. theres quite a few parts saw 046's on ebay and a couple 066s but theyre going for quite abit more than the 046
bad thing is most the parts saws are just that they may run or kinda run but theyve already had parts picked from them. theres on 046 in particular thats very close to complet and may go for under 100 bucks that im watchn real close.
anyways thats what im up doin tonight.
Is that skip chain on a 16" bar? I could see running skip on a 20, but that 026 should run full comp on a 16 just fine shouldn't it?
Yup, 16" is perfect on the 026.
The 026 may pull a 24", but it sure wasn't intended to do that. Hope you're not in a hurry.
its full skip RSF on 18" dealer didnt have any rsc when i got it. it cuts very well and holds rpm if i dont push on it to hard. also self feeds real well
i couldnt imagine running a 24" on the 026. saw just doesnt have enough balls to do it for more then a few cuts. ill save the 24" for the 359
I thought you had a 24" on your 026 in another post and assumed that's what you had on it here.
nah just put it on the other day for the vid to see whow it did agaisnt the 310 with the same bar and chain mounted. cut pretty much the same speed as the 310 is smallw wood. id actualy like to have 16" bar and RSC but dealer didnt have that in stock. RSF is very agresive, maybe alittle much for the 026, when rpms drop you can definatly tell iits a full skip
My 260 wears a 16" .325 B&C. Best combo IMHO. 8-pin rim.
and ported im sure does the 260 wake up much from mild porting? widen intake and exhaust leave transfers alone. im asking because it seems to run pretty good just the way it is, even thought its no 346
Mine turns 17,400 WOT if that's any indication. Took 1st in class at a GTG over 346, Partner 5000s, and Dolmar 5100s, and others. Most of the others were ported as well. It's no slouch for sure.
i was kinda hopn youd say no your fine live it alone lol
ill get carb for it one of these days and then see what ahppens. thanks for the info
Mine turned about 15,800 before the carb swap. Are you close to that? It now turns about 16,500 with the filter on and 17,400 with it off.
i dont have a tach yet, i need one though. seems like my mild muffler mod made the top end come alive alittle, it was pretty blubery on top before the mod
The 026/260 has alot of potential when ported. Bigger carbs and filters help but depends on what you want to use the saw for.
My saw still works great for work. I just make sure to have the filter on it and richen it up a hair.
