    Can this program be used to calculate timing duration for chainsaw engine?

    Does anyone use computer program for calculate port timing durations for chainsaw engines? "Rexxys mopedprogram" works great for 2-stroke engines with expansion chamber exhaust. Can it also be used for engines with "back pressure exhaust" ? Here i inserted numbers for Husqvarna 254, year: 87

    Hello, I just made an account, but I've lurked for a few years. I recently bought a used 45cc 346 on ebay for probably $100 too much, but definitely too much since it's given me nothing but issues. For the last year or so I've been bucking and felling with a Husqvarna 460, but I got tired of...
