Ground through the intake neck on the first cylinder then started over on this one.


Doing the muffler while waiting on caber rings


Chain brake does work just barely

If rings dont bring this compression up, ive been toying with the idea of 46 cylinder and a pop up 064 piston. To be honest i havent realy a clue when it comes to that stuff.

Hoping to use this saa to cut big fir in idaho. This will be my 3rd or 4th 44

You guys do some awesome work on your saws

I ground through the kneck on my first cylinder so i put it to the side, one on the left
20180317_235937.jpg

Long story short the dark one makes 150 gasketless and even sanded some.
The left one has zero squish gasketless so running the .5mm gasket it also makes about 150.

I want a tight higher compression saw. 046. My question is are the meteor top ends lasting for you guys.
Next question would a 064 pop up be fairly easy, have a local machinist that im sure would turn the piston for 50 bucks or less.
Ive done some reading and magic pop up might be 030 on 064 piston in the 046 cylinder.

I want to use the 064 piston so that if i decide to or need to i can go back to a 046 piston.

Could some here do a pop 064 piston on measurements that have worked in the past then i can tune squish with gaskets. I know its best to have the saw while doing pop ups.

There is new 046 oem top on ebay for a decent price. But i scared to hit the buy it now its got some scarey external casting lines and two ridges running to the echaust wall. Makes me wonder whats hiding in places i cant fix

Sorry for long winded question. The jb welded cylinder does run well


I havent tuned it or cut with it, just sounds healthy.
Saw is mainly just being built for fun and to cut wood to heat the house and occasional lot clearing job


Thanks for any advice, ill probly be ordering some kind of 46 top in next few days

Got a 46 cylinder and pop up 64 piston from go bigblue over the weekend. I gota say the cylinder is much better than i expected and piston is amazing.

Ive got alittle time with a file makeing my fingers bleed fitting the piston to wristpin bearing and getting the cylinder to fit on the saw.

Im not much for this close tolerance file type stuff i keep eyeing the flap disc on the grinder and wana stuff the 1/4" carbide burr in the piston.

Id rather weld on the muffler so i did
20180322_181401.jpg

Ill have to get the calipers out and measure ports or wrap paper around skirt to skirt and cut it to see how much winder intake and exhaust can go.
Where shooting for 025ish squish.

Might be a week or so and not even sure i want to play with a burr in this cylinder just yet. Might just check squish and go with it if intake and exhaust are close to skirts

Building horse fence at my place right now wife says thats priority

I actually havent been busy welding.

I do have it on bench and ready. Atleast i think ready. Maybe tonight.

I havent had time to port it. I did port match the cylinder to my muffler hoping to get some time tonight.

On the skirt it suposed to help the piston run more true in the bore. The piston will rock slightly and have spots that wear more than others the ceramic will kinda conform to this wear pattern.
They say the ceramic on top is suposed to shed heat better.

It does look kinda cool, though i requested purple.

I honestly dont know if its gona be much benefit in this application. Though this guys coating survived a 15hr salt spray he does pistons in race care motors and sleds running twin turbos and nitrous. He sure believes in it.

Saw may run tommorrow i think i had cylinder on and off a hundred times fitting the 064 piston to crank. I ended up having to shorten the skirts
Squish also hit the mark at .05 with thin gasket. With gasket removed and elbo grease its now .02ish. With that and bretts .04 pop up it should be pushing some good compression. If compression is to high i can shed alittle with the gasket put back in.

Heres a few photos.

I bought some cheap flimsy dawgs on ebay so i ended up cutting these out

Its been a bear. Clearancing the piston journls caused burrs that wouldnt allow wrist pin through

Its actually mostly read to toss rings and circlips in and run it. Hopefully its not a 1 cut wonder
