    Working on my first complete tear down and rebuild of an 026.

    I've got new bearings, used crank I bought online (my original is locked up at the lower needle bearing cage)
    Impulse line, intake boot, seals, and gaskets.
    All oem parts

    Going to try to clean this cylinder up with with my foredom and Emory.
    (Thank you Randy for that thread in AS)

    Only thing left to buy is a piston and rings.
    I believe I am going to try the Meteor brand but would like to confirm that this cylinder is for sure a 44mm and not the 44.7mm.

    I got the below measurements with my caliper and I'm pretty sure I need to go with the 44 but would someone mind confirming here for me?

    One inch equals 25.4mm exactly.
    You have a calculator on the phone you posted from.
    1.726 x 25.4 = ???

    You can do it! :)

    On the mettic scale it reads just shy of 44. Is the dial at 0 when fully closed?

    All 026s are 44mm. 49cc.
    Some of the newer 260s are 44.7mm 50cc
