    I am in needs of a good piston and cylinder for either a poulan 245a or a 306a chainsaw. NOS parts would be awesome but anything in decent used shape will do more than fine. I am restoring one of these saws and recently am just getting back into it pretty deep. I've got all the other things I would need but a P&C will make it complete. Anyone interested in selling or possibly a trade for some other parts? Please let me know. Thanks for your time.

    Be aware it's not that easy to swap a 306 and 245 P/C with each other.

    If you use a 245 P/C you will need a 245 rod and vice versa.

    Honestly your probably as well off to find another saw as to find a NOS P/C.

    There 35 years old and parts have not been made for a long time.

    My saw is a 245 and with that I understand what you mean. I didnt consider the stroke of the 306 being different like that. Thanks for bringing that up mark.

    Good saw! I learned to cut wood in the late 70s' with a 245A and sold wood 10 years with it. Wished I'd kept it.

    I should have made myself more clear.

    It's not because the stroke is different, its because the wrist pin size is different.

    The 245 piston uses a larger pin. The 2445's small end of the connecting rod is larger then the 306's.

    The crank pin dia and stroke is the same for the both of them.

    Even better to know, either way the two P&C's must have a matching connecting rod as well. I appreciate the info.
