    I found it easier to pull the choke shaft out before the plug. Makes the plug easier to get back in.

    Hello Joe. According to acresinternet the 216 carb belongs on a 181. The 228 goes on the 281/288 saws. Does yours have the "roller" style of linkage or a wire linkage? 216= wire linkage, 228= "roller".

    Nail on the head Dale. I knew the carb came off of a 181 but completely forgot about the 281/288 using the roller. Dammit...sorry Joe

    No biggie, two options here.

    1: 501 91 86-01 (Throttle shaft w/ roller) $10.99 as of 01/12/2018

    2: 501 80 55-01 (Trigger, 181) (NLA but I believe one from a 272 will work. 501 51 80-02 $7.99 as of 01/12/2018)

    501 81 43-01 (Throttle Link) $6.99 as of 01/12/2018

    Aha! I was wondering about that throttle shaft and how it would work with the 288 throttle lever. I'll figure something out. No worries :)


    Thanks for the list of solutions and part numbers Joe :)

    Oh and Josh and I compared the old style starter on my builder to the new style on his runner. I prefer the looks of the new style and plan to get a new OEM unit being they are only 20 bucks and swap the guts over. Now without stripping both starters, Josh and I didn't see any obvious differences that would dash my plans. Is there something we didn't see that would prevent the swap?

    We could just swap the guts between yours and mine to figure that out next time we’re in the barn. Tomorrow?

    Well lemme help you with that.... you gave me an AWESOME deal on that builder regardless of anything!! Better??? :D

    Even if I decide I want a brand new carb, I'm still more than happy.

    Speaking if which and just in case in the interest of options, is there a Walbro that works on a 288?? I scored a new Walbro WJ for my 394 for a steal on ebay last year because it was listed as for an RC airplane rather than a chainsaw carb.

    Would have to have Shaun mod it for the roller, other than that yes it will work. Or we could try the mod ourselves, be good experience

    What, a Walbro WJ??


    Oh and I know I keep saying this, but the more I keep sourcing parts and thinking on this build the more excited I get about it. :D

    The help that has come out of the woodwork has been humbling. :) I'll be paying it forward any way I can when an opportunity presents itself.


    HOORAY 288!!
