What saws are you looking for parts for? Rottman Sales (Kevin Rottman) have some old-stock parts for Poulan, Pioneer, Partner, and the smaller...
The last photo looks like the correct piston to me.
I found a good one - get me your addy.
I'll let you know here shortly.
You'll likely have to make one - Husqvarna hasn't made a full-circle version that I'm aware of. There's a couple ways to go about it, one being...
I might be able to hook you up Brian - I'll look today.
On #2 - Flippy caps were long after the change to the 12mm wrist pin and the designation to the 440, so you have a 440 there.
I can use another 288 jug also Brett.
I think you should. It's a gift from your lovely wife and you can always think about that when you're running it.
I've not run the 271 but we had several 2511Ts purchase brand new at my last job and they were excellent. We had a T435 but it was a non-runner in...
Well, currently, the homeowner rear-handle models are the 440, 445, 450, 455, & 460, which leads me to believe the 435 is at the beginning of that...

Yes, the poly flywheel crank is wider. So the swap is not a bolt-and-go. There would be extensive custom work involved.
They made them in both steel and aluminum. I believe the aluminum handles came on the later saws.
Yours looks like an early one, and they didn't have a compression release until around 1993-94.
The 044 came out in North America in 1988 I believe.
We'll answer your questions...
I bought the conversion kit from this gentleman and he got everything to me fairly quickly (considering it was coming from across the pond)
If your buyer decides they can sell the HD filter base separately, I'd pay a pretty penny for it.
