Hello and MS211 piston question

Recommended Posts

Hello chaps,

Newbie to the forum here. First saw was a 028 Wood Boss bought at auction twenty something years ago. Now i have more saws than i know what do with - all second-hand and broken when purchased. Fixing them usually involves improving on the std spec by increased compression, exhaust mods etc.

 

Anyway, latest broken saw is an MS211 in cosmetically nice condition, low hours, 140 psi cylinder pressure but.....exhaust off and piston is part seized. Probably old fuel.

 

To the point - I was going to fit a Meteor piston to the saw but can't find one. So does anyone have any experience with the MS211 pistons that are available eg from dandrikop or tesgol. Or any others that have proved reliable?

 

Thanks for your help.

Both ebayers are decent traders. When I have had issues with Tesgols parts, he has responded in a quick and professional manner and none of this disappearing in to the distance so stands by his products.

I have only had Meteor and Episan products from Danikrop and don't know the manufacture of his piston.

 

Up to you which way you go but can vouch for both sellers.....L&S Engineers also have an aftermarket piston as well as the OEM part for circa £60 - your choice!

Thanks for reply. Agree 100% - but (apart from 4 meteor pistons and 1 golf piston) thats based on what i have read here, a lot of it from you :biggrin::biggrin:

 

Contacted both sellers,

Pistons from Tesgol are made by VEC, India.

Danikrop didn't disclose manufacturer but said they are made in Taiwan.

 

I'd be happy with Meteor or Episan but these are not available to my knowledge.

Didn't like the Golf piston (for husky 136).

I have no idea about the above two. .....was hoping someone on here had some direct experience ???

 

Thanks,
