      In response to my abbreviated post below people have suggest your Redmax 3800 you have for sale as a solution to my problem. Can you tell me a little more about the saw? Why are you selling? How is the Redmax product in general? Do you think it would fit my needs? How does it compare to the saws I have listed?

      Thanks, Jay.

      A ported 260 will smoke a stock 346. Of course you port the 346 and.....well, you'll have CAD, lol. Yes, I port the P&C, mod the muffler and return ship the saw for $250. Turn around is usually only a few days.

      I'm new here but I've been cutting for 20 yrs or so and I've got a few nice saws. I'm interested in getting a new (barely getting broken in) MS260 ported and muffler modded. After getting my 346XP it seems like it needs it. I didn't even really know that people worked on the motors until I came here. It looks like you charge $250, please correct me if I'm wrong. What's the approx turn around time if I might ask. I realize you have a full time job.

      Thank you,

      All the ports in the cylinder are worked including exhaust, intake, upper and lower ends of the transfers. I also do a lot of work to the piston, and mod the muffler. I do all of the above and return ship the saw for $250.

      How much and what work is involved in a woods port on a newer (only has a few hrs) Stihl 660

      tested that 029 last nite. definite clutch side seal leak. so if you suggest replacing both seals, that sounds good to me. was wanting to confirm our prior plans about doing the seals and us swapping 359 cylinders. you suggested that you could order the parts, seals, muffler, etc. if that is ok with you that would be great with me. but if it is too much trouble please let me know and i can order. don't want you to feel like i am looking to abuse your seemingly good nature before we meet. ! I doubt it will matter, but the 029 is the pre 46mm piston. it is 45mm. thanks again, and let me know what you think.

      I will no longer associate myself with those guys. I will not be there. I'd love to hang out with friends and race saw, but they're not friends.
