Id like to know how some of you measure to figure/grind to your target intake duration.

So far the only way I have done it is set piston at time. Mark piston from intake floor, measure from mark to skirt and transfer to jug.

That's how I do it as well. If I don't want to add volume to the port, I just cut the piston skirt to the line I made.

Im ASSuming case volume? If thats true any negatives of side to side skirt lengths?

I'm gonna suggest that you spend more time reading before diving in. I know, that ain't really what a guy wants to hear. But the questions you are asking are very basic level stuff.

How's this sound? Take the saw you are interested in porting apart. Take pics, and start a thread. That way you'll be able to see what we mean by looking at the piston skirt width for example.....

Everyone seems to say you can mount a degree wheel using a 1/2" drill chuck... I think it'd be helpful if you could show how that is rigged up. I have a reference image on AS, but I think we should start generating our own content.

Also, some people are printing them out online and pasting them on things like CDs, but I think that something bigger, like 7-8" diameter would be more accurate.

Most drill chucks are 1/2" fine thread. You can mount a degree wheel using a bolt and washer.

I use 7" aluminum discs....with a printed degree wheel glued on.
