My wish is your command
Is the 2149 the 351? 2147 is the oe and 2153 is ne346.
Damn @huskihl , I need to get my a$$ in gear on that 2153 and get it up to EJ!! That looks fun.
What a waste.
The 50cc class is really polarizing(even without the characters here) because it's so versatile. They're small enough to be limbers, they do alright bucking smaller log length firewood. They're inexpensive enough to get into racing if one desires. Every voter has a different, very strong opinion, because of their use. Add on top of that that the OP wants to throw in something out of the CC class(which, coincidentally, he has for sale here) and this thread will literally never end.
I voted 550, because in my opinion it is more versatile. I'm guessing the 261 is similar right now. If I was heading to the woods without knowing what I would encounter, I'd probably want the 550 with an 18". I have a lot of time on Dolmar 510xs, so I trust them and appreciate how smooth and easy to use they are. I wouldn't hesitate to take one of those with an 18" or 16" bar. If I were taking two saws I would choose a 346 or 2153 with a short bar for limbing and light bucking. The 501p looks like it could fill this role as well.
Clear as mud right?
Huskihl is that your build? I have an OE 346 that could use some work.
I've shaken Kevin's hand. Those phalanges are built for 50mm and up...
You girls fall for this every single time
Yes. Armbru84 picked it up on eBay and and it sent to me
What is up with the 2149 cylinder design? Same basic design as the 346? Mahle or Husqvarna cylinder like the 353?
It's 42mm open port, completely different than a 346 jug.
WOW! That thing is impressive for a 42mm open port.
Most likely it has a 44.3 346xp piston and cylinder on the 2149 mag case. It's a bolt on swap.
that is correct
That was what I thought, but no one has said otherwise so I figured it was a true 2149. That is why I wanted to clarify the model numbers.
It gets confusing. I put the same thing together last winter. I just called it a 2149/53
Your memory is as short as you are. Carry on!
Sorry. I wasn't trying to hide anything. I figured it was obvious that it wasn't the open port cylinder.
Yep, NE 346xp cylinder
