    So I’m finally getting to these. It’s been a while... Sorry @ Ryan Browne and @Sleeper.

    This one is getting a complete rebuild, it’s been in a box for a while, and needs a good cleaning. [​IMG][​IMG]

    This is fantastic news!! Seriously though, no apology necessary, by any stretch of the imagination. You're doing us an awesome service in building and porting these saws. I can't wait to run mine!!

    I love a ported 262. So angry and torquey.

    I’m excited to build these! I have had very little Saw time, life has gotten in the way. I’m going to build my own as well!

    Getting an itchy throttle finger... can hardly wait to run my 262! It may end up being used more than the 372...

    This is yours, Everything is clean now. Sometimes I hate being so anal. I can’t leave any crud in the crevices, and first time it cuts wood it’s gonna be back there...
    Any how, the flywheel side case has some deterioration by the oil fill[​IMG]
    It won’t hurt anything, but I’m not happy about it...

    I can split this case and use it if you want, but it’s gonna say 261 instead.
    It’s your choice @Sleeper

    Just clean up that cruddy area a little and slap some paint on it. I'll be okay with that.

    As for crud build up, yes... it will eventually get dirty again. Kind of hard to keep a saw perfectly clean when it is being used. You can get it close if you blow it off with compressed air or a pressure washer every now and then. Me, I usually gently scoop the crud out with a piece of plastic.

    Ok, I’m sure the casting is saturated with oil, and won’t hold paint long. Anyone have any ideas to get it clean enough for paint?

    Ah, didn't think of that oil saturated part. Maybe a propane torch and carefully heating the area up to burn off the oil? Or will the casing catch on fire?

    Well, maybe that could be done. I'll let Dan decide if he wants to swap plates on the 262 and 261 case halves or just clean and paint the 262 case half. I'm good with either way.
