    Is it running rich? Should have some carbon on top of that piston? All Saber Ive used made carbon on top of the crown

    Not any more than red armor that I ran in it previously. I do load the saw well and it wears 24” bar.

    Thats odd. I hadnt seen many oils when the saw is tuned keep a clean piston top. This is my 346 with RA at 40to1 and its still rich 1502016905312.jpg

    That's about where I like to tune my saws, sure you will loose a tiny bit of power and use s little more fuel, but that's ok.

    Ya me too. Its at about 14700 right off 4 stroke and wears a 16" Cannon with PS chain for limbing. It would probably carbon on over if I loaded the 16" more

    I just peeled inside that 272 running on Ben ol. It looked very greasy inside. Had an air leak.... carb was loose. Got that fixed. Saw actually behaves like it should now. I’m proud.

    The 3/8P is the quickest to me and smooth limbing. I had a gutted strato 241c with Stihl PS setup that was as fast and a few cuts faster than a ported 346 running .325

    Hard to get a good photo of piston top but it’s good. Hope you can see the reflection of the oil film. That light exhaust port buildup hasn’t changed since I changed from red armor. I think it’s pretty clean.

    That 241 was quick but I still like the nasty attitude of the 346! I like to hear that 346 hollering and screamin like a fool when the throttles pinned!!:eek::D
