    A little "scuffing", right from the factory. I haven't even pulled this saw over yet. This is why you break-in a new piston easy. Nothing hurt here fortunately.

    No Mahle markings anywhere on the piston or cylinder.

    Great! This will be an interesting thread.

    Surprised by the scuffing from the factory. Is this the norm I wonder?

    Is it? They have a great reputation. This cylinder is a beautiful casting. I don't see and bugger anywhere on it.

    So do you have a plan with this saw? Or is this a R&D project? (Hope fully not customer funded!) Interesting stuff. Thank you for posting these!

    LOL - I didn't say that it is anything wrong with Gilardoni, but it may explain why it doesn't say Mahle on it.

    Oh, I wasn't implying you were. I thought maybe you saw Gilardoni markings. That would be fine with me.

    Ahhhhh yes..
    Plain old "Done this here, and this is what done happened".:hmm3grin2orange:

    Each saw is gonna be an individual anyhoo.

    Just looking for a before and after comparo on the weight.
    I'm still wondering how much 261 ended up on the shop floor LOL!!!

    Any plans on removing the waffle pattern off the piston?
    Dunno why, but it just bugs me just looking at it.


    Stay safe!

    I ran one of these saws this past weekend and I liked it the way it was stock, except the dual bar spikes.

    I'm just laying things out right now. I have to let the ink dry a little before pushing the ring on down in for the next line, otherwise it smears even worse.


    Can you saw WIIIIIDER?
