    Saw the deal of the day has cross 254 kits on sale. What saws will accept this cylinder? I have 2 more jonny 625 cases and several runners already built with oem 625 630 670 266 and 268 on them. I know im crazy to be thinking of running a small cylinder on one, but curiosity is working on my wallet. You know the whole case volume to cylinder displacement ratio deal. Wondering if it would fit and maybe make a lightning limber? If it wont fit on them what saws will accept the kit without anything too crazy needed to make it fit. I have a 45? 50 51 55 husky and a 254 crank i had thought of swaping things around to have a sleeper. Talk to me about whats been done how it worked whats needed and so on.

    254 is it's own, the stroke is different on the 254, the 254,257,261,262 use the same chasis, the 254 is the only one to use a different crank out of those

    Oddly the 254 is a full pound lighter then the 262 according to the 1991 sales brosure, it has a smaller muffler, shorter topcover and all rubber AV and a shorter handle as well

    Actually the stroke is the same, it's the connecting rod length that's different.

    Is it a longer or shorter rod than the others in that family?
