I didn't have any issues with my piston skirt hitting. I checked that before I even continued my build. I find it interesting that your piston skirt was hitting, but you had a squish of .065. But my piston skirt wasn't hitting and I had a squish of about .035 with the base gasket. If I deleted the base gasket, my piston would hit the squish band and wouldn't do a full revolution. I ran the thinner of my 2 base gaskets to keep my squish as low as possible though. I would have to go back and look through the thread to see exactly what my squish numbers were. I am running total kit parts, except for the crank seals and the base gasket. Those are Hy-way parts. This reminds me that I need to pull my saw out and start it. Been awhile since I have done as such. I also need to put in my HO oil pump.

It's because the connecting rod is shorter, making the piston closer to the crank and farther from the top of the cylinder. Get it?

Yes they do. Just like the leaking gas cap with the flat gasket. They finally sent me a replacement after pulling hens teeth and it has an Oring and does not leak. I had already bought a replacement but I just wanted to see what it would take for them to replace something and it was alot.
They come from different manufacturer's

Yes it is. You only get one email a day or every other day. I think it took about 10 emails 2 pictures and a video to get a gas cap and then they asked me to order something else so they could combine shipping but I didn't.

That thing about ordering something else is brilliant. They make the mistake and you pay the ride. They improved on capitalism and made more brutal. 1$ American dollar is worth about 6.5 Chinese dollars there.

I had no idea what the exchange rate was. They are making serious money then. A $200 saw kit in our money would be $1900 in their money, right?

Well I have been reading for months and I bought my kit over black friday when famertec was offering 35% off. 202 for a 90cc saw shipped to my door is a killer deal. I have bought a few oem parts to help the saw be a reliable runner. I will see if the carb is ok and if it is not I will get a new one. Thank yall for all of the information on the builds.

Hey guys first time poster, thanks for all the info already as have have built 2 660 with your help.
On both saws I received defective brake tension springs that were bent off to the side.
After many discussion with miss Xu at farmers they wanting to send a pj26048 spring which when I looked it up said it was for a 360 and smaller saws wondering if this will work on a 660
Also just order three more Sol's once this 361 the case that they sent had many flaws they're saying it's okay to put it together when to get your opinion the other picture shows that it came out of the mold slightly warped and underdeveloped

Hi, welcome.

Hell no to both.

They will keep sending the wrong part. It's to their benefit is why. We seen this a hundred times.

This is not against you. But we have trained them by not holding them to their commitment.

I would not use the case, and the spring will never work

They have the advantage of making you suffer and they will. On my website I tell you how to handle it if it's important to ya. But you gotta do it Excatly and stick to it. Mostly guys are to big of pussies or lazy and they screw us time and time again.

Sorry this happened to ya.

1213181201a.jpg Thanks BT
I'll check out your post and I will stick with it I'm planning on building a set of these saws for myself and I want to make sure they're right don't mind a little imperfections that I can fix I actually enjoy it
The o38 did I just received looks pretty good
minor pitting in the case but I think sealant along with the gasket will take care of that
I also received farmertec bar and chain I'm anxious to use it and give some feedback
Already started with cc company
Thanks

Yeah, I wouldn’t accept that either. First Their going to ask you to take a partial refund of the case price.
Just the answering back and forth about that took me a week.

Checking out BT’s site will lead you the right direction on handling it.

I was surprised when the high idle worked out the box on ole Dusty.
I couldn’t believe it when my other 4 never worked. The control switch still feels weak though.

OK PayPal has escalated my three cases which two of them involve break tension Springs of a 660 and 360 and the 361 and the other one involves the case of the Chainsaw 361
I've already finished the 03 8 today with the help of Bedford T's videos
I did end using a grommet plus a small T 27 M 4 thread screw they provided for the Shroud that's behind the handle
Being new at this I did get confused when the handle had its own ground wire coming out and then also the Magneto had its couple of wires coming out had to end up taking one of them off
Thanks for the videos and the advice
So if I do want to purchase OEM products anyone have a suggestion for the best website
