Excuse my ignorance, but what do you mean when you say "Air Filter Modded" on your saws.
hello Steven,
242 and actually 254, has a airfilter throat close to venturi size.
When we use bigger carb airfilter throat will be a bottle neck, so I dremmel up the throat.

I bought my 268xp NEW in the 80's,



And it's still kicking azz,



AND still looks pretty decent too,



SR

Oh yeah.......the 268 XP is an excellent saw....to bad they had such a short run as an XP.....I just got done fitting an 8 cord truckload of maple to 16" stove wood...16-24" dia. with the 61 conversion in my sig....hard to believe a man can smile the whole time doing that work!! Real nice saw......pics of it are way back at the beginning of this thread so I won't bore anyone being repetitive....

Jeepers...that's crazy!
not really, them 42/242/246 is unique saws, no one has made a short slim power head after them.
I didnt stocked up alot parts while they where around :( that I regret.

I don't think I can ever remember seeing a 42 or 242 with my own eyes. I think Tor is a small Huusky herder.
lol ya, I got a buddy who fancy them also
