    Question for the husqvarna experts. What piston will work in a 238? I also would like to know if the transfer on the exhaust side can be removed the same way as a nikasil plated cylinder? Acres site specs calls it a chrome plated cylinder.

    I rebuilt a 238se last spring and used a piston for a 338xpt. The piston requires a few modifications to work and the crown height is slightly lower but a base gasket delete gets the squish clearance back into a decent range. 10E5717E-EB7F-417D-804C-646DA41CE05E.jpeg FD65B243-9FA8-40F9-BCF2-B3B1FC58F461.jpeg DAA91087-7FA2-49C3-BB89-CE026458B91D.jpeg 17BB2091-0073-49D3-B6DD-143940617AEA.jpeg

    Just for reference this is what a new 338xpt piston looks like. E230D786-BEA0-4080-8CD9-6F2C9F00BCFC.jpeg
