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.
That's it for now.
Cool. Subscribing so I can watch as you put your personal touch on this strato (assuming it's not torn down just for pictures) :hmm3grin2orange:
Another Gilardoni top end? opcorn:opcorn:
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.
AAANNNDDDD so it begins!!!!:yourock:
Wait!!!! Didja weigh the thing empty PHO on a tripple claibrated and verified by the Papal guard, and Hannah Montanna approved Poastal scale?:hmm3grin2orange:
Thanks for tearing into another one Brad!
Nope. And ya ain't gettin' no stock comparisons and percentages either, lol:hmm3grin2orange:
Are you thinking of modification ? :yoyo:
No. I am modifying
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.
Typing and grinding...kinda warped when ya think about it.
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?
