Acornhill here on Arboristsite used to have quite a few NOS Pioneer parts that he was selling. Great guy to deal with. You can probably send him a private message and see what he has.So Im sure this info is in the thread somewhere but I don't feel like reading through 764 pages. Is there anybody selling parts for pioneers? Im rebuilding a Pioneer P42 but am putting a power port p45 cylinder on it. Im needing a center gasket, crankshaft seals and bearings, and top end bearing. I'm also interested in setting up the squish. Anybody have what is considered a safe clearance and head volume? Possibly a bar also. My saw was given to me and it has an old Bow Bar on it. While its cool i think a regular bar will be needed.
Thanks for the help.
Pretty sure you will be fine with a squish of about. 020 on that saw. But, using a stock base gasket will likely cause the squish to be much higher.. My 455 is about. 017 and I believe we used a brown paper grocery bag and some sealant to get it there. It'll really run the way its set up.
