I noticed a small speck that I can catch a nail on every once in a while, about .5mm in size. It is below the lowest port on the intake side, so I...
I think I saved it.
Here is the cylinder after some light honing.
Nearly all scratches are gone, there...
Well everything I've done so far has been by hand. Maybe time to step up to some air tools.
I watched that video last night after I stopped. I was just afraid of going too deep, but he was using much more coarse paper than I was and he...
I will get back to it later today. It was already 10 pm when I was working on it, and getting cold, so sitting in garage with the doors wide open...
Would a hone be a bad idea?
I had a different thread about my new to me MS461 before it was mine, but now $150 later, it is mine.

Heading to get it now. Got him down on price. So wish me luck.
I've never seen a 461 even close to the price I would have in this.
If I could get by with just a new piston and rings, it may be worth pursuing for me.
Well the guy wrote me back and said a saw shop told him the mains seemed good and the damage was minimal due to the saw only being run a short...
I am unsure on the mains. I have yet to see it in person, just pics.
