    Any Efco / Olympyk officianados out there? Wondering if the 284f and the John Deere cs81 (I believe it is the Efco 181) have the same stroke. I have a cs81 that has a questionable spot on the cylinder, put a Stihl 064 piston in it (they appear identical) and it runs from cold start, but is difficult to tune and won't start after its been run a while..I think the piston is scoring. I want to know if I can put the 284 top end on the JD.

    I'm not familiar with the 284 :confused: but the CS81, Efco 181, and Oly 980 should be basically the same thing with only minor differences.

    Does the 284 run or is it a parts saw? I have one that cuts very well with a 20" bar on it and may be interested it what is left after you remove the top end.
