    50:1 is good. A lot of guys (me included) like to run 40:1 as a little extra insurance.

    Hey fellas, thought I'd share some pics of my Huskies.
    2100CD and a 281XP that was given to me last week. Also some ads in my collection.
    The 281 is missing the clutch cover, oil cap, air filter and a coil wire.
    Engine was locked up due to very dry bearing from long term storage, all good now. 20170523_144701_edit_1495516397062.jpg 20170523_144718.jpg 20150904_1701512.jpg 20180711_152931.jpg

    Hi Folks! I had this question posed to me yesterday by a friend - can I put a 51 cc Husky engine in a Husky 55?

    I believe the 50,51,55 cranks and crankcases are the same. So i think the cylinder cylinders and pistons are as a pair cross compatible due to the same length stroke and screw hole positions

    Hopefully these don't mind the ride home. They are far from mint shelf queens, these were my Dad's production saws that kept food on the table when I was a kid. It took me since November when he passed to track them down. I am very happy I was able to get ahold of them.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Has anyone replaced the HDA carb of a Husky 44 with something more modern? Something that you can get parts for. Walbro doesn't sell the check valve anymore.

    Hi guys, there'a a 141 for sale locally that I've been looking at. About all I've found out about it is it's a consumer saw, mag case, chrome bore 40cc's. I really want a 2 series but they are few and far between here locally. Is the 141 similar to the 242? I don't need anymore 57cc saws and up so I've been searching for a smaller 2 series. I don't think I could turn down a clean 262/266/268 tho.

    NeS , maybe this is a better description , the oil tank/engine carriage is plastic , the gas tank/rear handle is plastic , the clamshell engine is aluminum . The front handle is aluminum , the piston is aluminum , the cylinder is chrome .

    They made it home just fine. Kind of forgot to update this... Lol
    These saws earned their keep back in the day, the melted hood was a standard feature on all of dad's saws. I knew he had a muffler he swapped between 254's when he traded saws in, I didn't know it was more than just gutted though.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
