    One done, this one is a nice oem with purely a big old muffler mod and a retune. I like it, heated handles are a novelty.. IMG_1529.JPG

    Done a bit of grinding to match the case to the cylinder on the 346 NE

    I was thinking of grinding a bit more, but I am just after that little bit extra, nothing more atm.

    Tested this bad boy today. All in all it’s bloody strong for a 50cc. I like it more that the muffler modded 550xp. This has had a muffler mod, squish set, tiny bit of case matching and a new meteor piston kit with the caber. It has cost £155 all in with the new bar and chain.. IMG_1567.JPG

    Now to tackle the 351. Which I found out today has a leaking flywheel side crank seal. Races when on the clutch side down. Checked the boot and all the other obvs like fuel etc.

    This is .325 .050 but I am not totally a fan of .325... also it’s a mission to get chisel chain rather than semi with .050...

    But currently don’t care if it’s .325 as it still cuts like a lightsaber.

    .325x18" here. I think usage is a consideration for choosing a pitch. I like 3/8 for bucking, but .325 is smoother and less grabby for limbing. Heck, a ported 50cc saw could reasonably be decked out with 3/8, .325, or 3/8lp. Each have advantages and disadvantages. Gotta try a few setups to figure out which you like the best.
