    Is your saw race only?

    Which model?

    Full ceramic or metal inner/outer?

    I’ve shifted away from them after hearing many negatives. I still have a dominant set here for Stihl.

    Mine are 036-046 sized. So the PTO would work, but not the Fly side.

    I don’t believe there is an easy way unless you send your crank to Crank Works. The 024 AV was able to be stroked with the 24 super or 026 crank I believe.

    No, unless it was a 24 super. But that’s basically the same as an 026 bottom.

    Nothing wrong with running the oem bearings. That’s what’s still in mine.


    I run an 024 super with the piston milled flat, base cut about .050” and squish set accordingly. Big outlet out the front of muffler, timing advanced, and a modified WJ 69 carb.

    I’m sure it’s been done. It’s more common to bore them.

    From the sounds of what Al said in your other thread. They would most likely have to be custom made.
